Before Counting On stars Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth welcomed their first son, Gideon, in February, the couple purchased and renovated their first house together. The couple worked hard to get the home ready in time for Gideon’s arrival, and Joy-Anna talked about the stressful process in an episode of Counting On last season.
But after posting new pics on Instagram this week, fans noticed that Duggar and Forsyth were living in a trailer, and it got fans wondering what was going on with their living situation.
According to Romper, Duggar and Forsyth lived in the trailer when they were renovating their house, and they were under pressure to get everything finished before she gave birth. Duggar said before she married Forsyth in May 2017 that renovating the house was exciting because it was the place they were going live and start their family.
After months of work, their home renovation turned out beautifully. It featured vaulted ceilings, an open floor plan, and plenty of room for their growing family. But, now they are back in the RV, and fans are asking if they are selling their house and buying another property to flip.
In response to the fan speculation, Duggar wrote, “We’ll be posting an update soon! ?? Yes, we are living in a camper!! And I love it!❤️”
When it comes to that update, there are a few possibilities, with the most obvious being they have purchased a new home. Or, they could have decided to live in the camper for a while to save money. However, some think that the couple could be having financial trouble and can’t afford their mortgage.
Even though the Duggars make a lot of money from their reality TV show, it does get split many different ways, so each family member’s cut might not be very big.
Before he married Duggar, Forsyth flipped three houses to prove he could provide for his new family, and the couple has continued to flip properties and cars, but where they stand financially is anyone’s guess.
After documenting how much work they put into renovating their home, it would be quite a shock if they couldn’t afford it. But, we will find out the details of what is really going on when Duggar posts that promised update.
One thing is clear, though. No matter where they live, Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth are definitely happy and enjoying their lives together.
New episodes of Counting On air Monday nights on TLC.
