Less than a week after her older brother announced that he and his wife were expecting their sixth child together, 21-year-old Joy-Anna Forsyth has an announcement of her own.
On May 1, Joy-Anna and her husband Austin took to Instagram, like three of her siblings and one of her cousins did, to tell her followers that her and Austin’s family of three is becoming a family of four.
On their joint Instagram account, Joy posted a series of herself and her husband with a sonogram, revealing her second pregnancy.
Some of you have guessed, some of you had no clue… November, 2019 Baby Forsyth #2 is Due!! Cannot wait to meet this new little one! Gideon is going to be such a great big brother!! #baby2due #babyforsyth #pregnant
The young couple, who married in 2017, are already parents to a 1-year-old boy named Gideon Martyn.
It’s unclear if the couple already knows the gender of their second child, and they also haven’t revealed Joy’s exact due date.
Several of Joy’s siblings shared their excitement in the comment section of her announcement.
Her oldest sister, Jana, wrote:
Congrats!!! Can’t wait to meet this little one!
And her sister-in-law, Lauren, who is married to her brother, Josiah, said:
Congratulations!!! So excited for y’all!!!-Lauren
As Dearly previously reported, Joy is the fifth of the Duggar crew to announce she’s pregnant.
Four months ago, Jessa and Ben Seewald announced they were expecting their third child before her brother Joe and Kendra Duggar followed suit.
Just a few weeks after that, it was their cousins Amy and Dillion King who announced they were expecting their first, and just last week, the eldest Duggar, Josh and wife Anna made their own announcement as well.
Their patriarch and matriarch of the Duggar family, Michelle and Jim Bob, said of Austin and Joy’s announcement:
The Bible is right, there is no greater JOY than seeing your children walk in truth. We have loved watching Austin and Joy build their lives together as a married couple and as parents. Their love for God, each other, Gideon, and others is genuine and inspiring. We could not be more thankful as we watch their lives unfold day by day. A new baby will bring even more joy and blessings to their lives and ours. We are on cloud nine that another grandbaby will make a debut in 2019!
Joy and Austin’s unborn child will be the 17th grandchild for Michelle and Jim Bob.
