Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband are all set to welcome a brand new baby into the Duggar fold.
The Duggar family is about to get (even) bigger! Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband, Austin Forsyth, are expecting their first child.
Austin and I are SO thankful to announce that we are parents!! Even before we were married we prayed that God would give us children and we are so blessed that he has given us this baby! Jesus is the giver of Life! The baby has arms, legs, fingers, and toes. It has a beating heart and brain waves. The baby responds to touch and is already right- or left-handed. The baby has its own unique fingerprints, which are different from anyone else's. All organ systems are in place! Psalm 139:13-16 "For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them." This passage indicates that God Himself formed our physical features and that He did so with a wonderful plan for our lives. God knew us in the womb. #babyforsyth #alreadyinlovewithmybaby #blessedbeyondmeasure #Jesusanswersprayers
Duggar, who stars on Counting On, married her husband in May after a three-month engagement. The 19-year-old star and her 23-year-old husband presumably have some experience around little ones—after all, her famous siblings Jill, Jessa and Joshua have kids of their own, and Duggar has plenty of younger siblings—so we imagine parenthood will come naturally to the sweet couple.
Will the parents-to-be have a big brood themselves? Time will tell! While Forsyth thinks he and his wife will welcome a baby girl, his wife is betting Baby Forsyth is a little boy.

What's Duggar most excited about where parenthood is concerned? "I'm really looking forward to seeing what the baby looks like," she said in a video from TLC. "Getting to see them going from just being a baby to being able to sit up and crawl and walk."
"I hope that our child is pretty much just like their mother," the dad-to-be added. Aw!
