Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth
Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth announced their first pregnancy on Instagram very soon after their 2017 wedding. On August 30, they shared the happy news with three photos and a caption that said Joy was “eating for two!” The couple welcomed a baby boy named Gideon on February 23, 2018.
“We are blessed beyond measure with the arrival of our son, Gideon Martyn Forsyth,” they shared via Instagram at the time. “Looking at our child for the first time was such an incredible moment! God is so good, and we are so thankful.”
In the spring of 2019, the family announced baby No. 2 was on the way! Unfortunately, the couple revealed just a few months later they suffered a miscarriage at 20 weeks, about halfway through the pregnancy. They took to Instagram to share the devastating news with their fans and followers, revealing the baby would’ve been a little girl named Annabell Elise. “Annabell means ‘God has favored me,’ and Elise means ‘God satisfies,’” they explained. “What a precious thing to know that when our daughter opened her eyes, the first thing she saw was the face of Jesus.”
Thankfully, good news came in March 2020 when the couple announced they were expecting another baby girl. “I’m not actually as scared as I thought I was gonna be after miscarrying at 20 weeks,” she told fans right after taking a pregnancy test that seemed to confirm the news. “I thought I was going to be so nervous, but I really am not. I’m excited.” They welcomed their daughter, Evelyn, on August 21, 2020.
Joy-Anna revealed she was pregnant again with baby No. 3 in a sweet Instagram post on October 5, 2022.
“We’re having a baby oh my goodness,” she said in a joint YouTube video. They became a family of five on May 19, 2023, when Joy-Anna gave birth to their little boy.
“He’s here!” the mom of three shared via Instagram. “Thank you all for praying … Mama and baby are recovering well,” she continued, keeping details to a minimum.
