Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth have kept a pretty low profile since having their first baby, Gideon. We haven’t heard much about Gideon over the past few weeks, but the Counting On couple broke their silence over the weekend and shared some adorable pics of their little one in honor of Mother’s Day.
Prior to the Mother’s Day post, the last we heard of Gideon was back on April 25, when Joy-Anna and Austin shared a pic in celebration of his 2-month birthday. The pictured featured a blanket with numbers on it, marking each month of Gideon’s first year. We presume the couple will continue to post photos each month until their little one reaches his first birthday.
On Mother’s Day, Joy-Anna and Austin shared a photo of Austin holding Gideon with Joy-Anna looking on. The family of three looked adorable in the pic and it’s clear that they are enjoying being parents. Joy-Anna donned a floral-patterned dress for the outing while Austin opted for a traditional suit and tie.
According to In Touch Weekly, Joy-Anna went into labor for 20 hours at home before going to the hospital to have Gideon. Despite the harrowing experience, it looks like Joy-Anna has completely recovered and is turning out to be a great mother.
So far, fans have responded well to Joy-Anna’s baby pics, which can’t be said of all the Duggars who have children. In fact, many fans commented on how they can’t believe how much Gideon favors Austin and how excited they are to watch Gideon’s journey unfold in the coming months.
Even better, Gideon is starting to smile a lot in the photos, which is in stark contrast to his cousin, Samuel, who is hardly ever caught smiling.
Given the timing of Joy-Anna’s posts, we can only hope that she continues to share photos of Gideon throughout the year. Filming for the new season of Counting On is expected to begin at any moment and there is a good chance Gideon will make a few cameos here and there.
Just how much Gideon will be a part of the show, of course, is yet to be seen, but it’s certainly great to see Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth happy with the newest addition to the Duggar clan.
