After years of being shamed and pulled apart for seemingly everything under the sun, Joy-Anna Duggar may have finally had enough. It seems the new mother is now taking steps to stand up for both herself and her family.
Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth have been married for 18 months and have tried to stay out of the headlines for the most part. Despite their attempts, the pair’s relationship has been harshly analyzed.
Historically, Joy-Anna has been one of the quietest of the Duggar family, even staying silent when fans and critics speculated that the star was pregnant prior to her August 2017 wedding. However, it now seems that she might be more inclined to speak her mind over comments made by fans.
Over the Thanksgiving holiday Joy-Anna took to Instagram with a sweet post, expressing her love for her family. One commenter expressed her disbelief that Joy-Anna could actually love her husband, accusing him of being controlling and overbearing.
Going by Joy-Anna’s usual reaction to comments like this we wouldn’t expect her to give any mind to the hatred, but this comment must have pushed her too far. Joy-Anna responded saying, “I love him MORE than I ever have.”
Another bought of speculation comes with fans believing that Joy-Anna is already expecting again! She responded once more stating, “I’m not!”
This hasn’t stopped fans from continuing to wonder if Joy-Anna and Forsyth are keeping the news to themselves for now. Many think she might be using her hair and posture to hide a growing belly others think that she might simply have some remaining “baby weight” and hasn’t concerned herself with losing it all.
We will have to wait and see if Joy-Anna’s reactions indicate she will be more verbal going forward or if this was just a single occurrence.
As for the pregnancy rumors… It looks like fans will be left guessing for at least a while longer.
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth return in new episodes of Counting On next year.
