The Duggars keep expanding. Joy-Anna Forsyth (née Duggar) and her husband, Austin Forsyth, are expecting their second child. Joy revealed her due date is for November 2019.


“Counting On” stars Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth are gearing to welcome a new member into their family, and they couldn’t be more excited about it.


The young couple married in May 2017 and welcomed their first child, Gideon Martyn, on February 2018.

“Our favorite math is addition, and we are very excited to share that the Forsyth family is adding a member!” the expecting parents told US Weekly on May 1. And continued:

“Marriage and being a mom and dad to Gideon has already far exceeded our expectations. We are looking forward to loving another little one and seeing what special dynamic he or she brings to our family. Table for 4 sounds perfect!”


They also made sure to share the good news with fans on Instagram, posting a series of adorable photos in which a smiling Joy-Anna is on her husband’s back while holding a sonogram of their baby. They also posed side by side holding the sonogram, and added a pic of little Gideon giggling.

The caption reads:

“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.”


Fans were quick to fill the comment section with their best wishes for Joy-Anna and Austin.

“Congratulations so happy for you guys!! Gideon will be a great big brother!!!!” wrote one user.

Another added, “Congratulations!! A new baby is always a joyous thing.”


Joy-Anna’s parents, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, also congratulated the couple on the family’s website.

“The Bible is right, there is no greater JOY than seeing your children walk in truth,” they wrote.

“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-Anna’s elder sister, Jill, also reacted to the pregnancy news on Instagram, saying: "Congrats @austinandjoyforsyth So super excited for y’all!! Gideon is gonna be a great big bro!”

With Joy-Anna’s pregnancy, that makes it three Duggar girls expecting kids this year. Anna Duggar and Josh Duggar are expecting their sixth child.


Jessa Seewald (née Duggar), is also pregnant with her third child with Ben Seewald, and Joe Duggar and his wife Kendra have their second baby on the way.

Their cousin, Amy King (née Duggar), is expecting her first child with her husband, Dillon King.

Congratulations to Joy-Anna and Austin!
