It’s been almost nine months since Counting On star Joy-Anna Duggar married Austin Forsyth, which means it is finally time for the conception date theorists to put their ideas to rest. For months, fans have speculated that Duggar and Forsyth got pregnant before their wedding day and have been concealing it from the public. But, it turns out, the couple conceived just days after walking down the aisle, and Duggar is finally posting pics on social media to prove it.
The Hollywood Gossip is reporting that Duggar shared a photo on social media earlier this week of her and Forsyth at a car auction, and the 20-year-old is obviously extremely pregnant. She captioned the photo with the hashtag #9daystillduedate.
Of course, fans started analyzing the baby bump, and since the shotgun wedding rumors have now died, they have moved on to another theory: Duggar is pregnant with twins.
The Counting On star has said from the beginning that she got pregnant on her honeymoon, but since she and Forsyth moved their wedding date from October to May and they announced their pregnancy just 12 weeks after tying the knot, fans doubted her story.
Duggar also has essentially disappeared from social media since her pregnancy announcement, and that didn’t help the shotgun wedding rumors because her absence was proof for many that she didn’t want to share how far along she really was.
But now, it turns out she was telling the truth, and she simply decided to keep a low profile during her pregnancy because she didn’t feel an obligation to share every aspect of her life with fans.
When baby Forsyth arrives nine months after the wedding, Duggar will finally get to prove her haters wrong, and that is a win for the young reality star.
TLC recently dropped the new trailer for the upcoming season of Counting On, and it looks like Duggar and Forsyth will be a big part of the new episodes.
The clip showed that cameras followed the couple around during their honeymoon in Switzerland, and the footage makes it easy to believe that the couple conceived their baby on one of those days. The two are constantly kissing and obviously enjoying the lack of chaperones.
“During our relationship, all the way up to our wedding day, we had never been alone together, so it was amazing being on our honeymoon — just being by ourselves,” explains Duggar, whose gender reveal is also teased.
Duggar and Forsyth’s baby will be here any day now, but fans will just have to wait to find out if it is a boy or a girl, because they did not share the gender news in advance with the public. Instead, they only told close friends and family.
Catch Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth when Season 7 of Counting On premieres Monday, February 26th on TLC.
