22-year-old Reality television personality Joy-Anna Duggar shows off growing baby bump in recent baby shower photos on her Instagram page.
Joy-Anna Duggar, reality television star and mom-to-be for the second time, looked radiant and happy in a series of new photos shared on Instagram to show off her baby shower celebrations at home with her family. The caption of the post read,
"Several weeks ago we were able to celebrate Joy and Austin and their precious baby on the way! ??"
The caption continued, saying that the family was rejoicing in God's gift given to them in the form of the little baby girl they are expecting. The much-anticipated baby girl is reportedly set to arrive on August 19, and they all can't wait for the little one to come.
The baby shower was graced with the presence of Duggar's mom, her sisters Jana, Jessa, Johanna, Jordyn, Josie, and Jill. Her sisters-in-law, and Carlin Bates, her best friend, were also present to celebrate the special day.
She also added that she felt unhappy, realizing that her mother and sisters will not be there for her in the hospital due to the pandemic.

Although the small gathering did not seem particularly aimed at following social distancing rules, the partygoers still looked very happy to be there for the celebrations.
The 22-year-old second-time mom shares her soon-arriving daughter and her son, Gideon Forsyth, who is two years old, with her husband, 26-year-old Austin Forsyth.
The baby will arrive a year after Duggar suffered a miscarriage at 20 weeks with what would have been her second child, which is why they felt the need to celebrate their God-given miracle just weeks away from her due date.
The baby they lost was named Annabelle. They went on to bury her at Forsyth's family's camp in the small Arkansas community of Combs in Southern Madison County.
Duggar admitted that her husband, Forsyth, has been very helpful during her pregnancy, especially with their son, Gideon, who is a vibrant firecracker of a two-year-old and loves getting into everything.
On the other hand, Forsyth is beyond excited about welcoming a girl into the family. All the experience they have is with a boy child, and now, it's the exact opposite.
On the family's YouTube channel, Duggar opened up to her fans in a recent video, sharing how she has been preparing for her delivery. She revealed that she would be having her baby at a hospital and was, at the time, getting ready to pack her hospital bag.
She also added that she felt unhappy, realizing that her mother and sisters will not be there for her in the hospital due to the pandemic. It will be just her and her husband when their little one comes into the world.
Duggar and Forsyth first announced that they were expecting their daughter in March with an Instagram post debuting her baby bump. They posted sonogram pictures in April on Instagram, thankful for their precious miracle. When little baby Forsyth comes, she will be welcomed into a family filled with love.
