Joy-Anna asked her curious fans on Instagram to check out their YouTube video to know the gender of the baby and promised that she and her husband would give them a detailed update about their pregnancy soon.

It’s been quite the crazy journey these last few months, but we are so thankful that mom and baby are healthy!


In the YouTube video, the couple revealed that Joy-Anna is pregnant with a baby girl. She is due to give birth on the second week of August. 

The news is extra-special to the fans because Joy-Anna suffered a miscarriage the last time. After announcing the news of her miscarriage, the reality star said goodbye to her stillborn child, a baby girl, in an Instagram post. 



In the emotional post, the mother-of-one thanked the fans for their support during the difficult time and also shared how thankful she and her husband were to have been pregnant with their unborn daughter. 

"She will be in our hearts forever!"


Even when she suffered a miscarriage, Joy-Anna continued to be there for her sisters during their pregnancies. In an interview with "US Weekly," the reality star explained how she could manage to do that amid the pain of loss. 

"But it’s not like I’m upset that I’ve lost my baby. I still am excited for them. But you think, ‘What would my baby look like? What would she be like?"

The couple had intended to name their baby girl 'Annabell Elise.' Despite the tragedy, the couple found solace in hope that they will one day see the little one again. 

Now, their prayers seemed to have been answered as they gear up to become parents to a baby girl. The couple shares a two-year-old son, Gideon.
