Counting On star Joy-Anna Duggar just announced that she and her husband, Austin Forsyth, are expecting their second child, and she is already sharing pics of the new baby on Instagram. The 21-year-old posted videos and pics from her 10-week ultrasound, and she has told fans that baby number two will be here in November.
On May 1st, Duggar and Forsyth announced on social media that their second child was on the way with a picture of themselves holding ultrasound photos. They added the caption, “Some of you have guessed, some of you had no clue… November 2019 Baby Forsyth #2 is Due!! Cannot wait to meet this new little one! Gideon is going to be such a great big brother!! #baby2due #babyforsyth #pregnant.”

Then just a few days later, they shared the 10-week ultrasound video and pointed out how tiny the baby’s arms and legs are. The couple also said they were excited to meet their new baby in just six and a half months.
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth tied the knot in May 2017, and got pregnant with their first child, Gideon, during their honeymoon. Because the couple announced a pregnancy so soon after walking down the aisle, they sparked rumors of a shotgun wedding, which didn’t die down until Gideon arrived in February 2018.
According to OK! Magazine, rumors of baby number two started to swirl a few weeks ago when Duggar and Forsyth went on a couple’s retreat to Branson, Missouri, in late February. And, just a few days later she was wearing a maternity dress in a pic she posted to social media, which added to the speculation that Duggar had some big news to share.
As Counting On fans know, Joy-Anna is the most recent in a long line of Duggar pregnancy announcements in 2019. Her big sister Jessa started things off when she told fans in January that she and husband Ben Seewald were expecting their third child.
Then, at the beginning of April, Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell announced that baby number two was on the way less than one year after welcoming their first child, Garrett.

On Easter, Cousin Amy – who fans remember from 19 Kids & Counting – revealed that she and her husband, Dillon King, were pregnant with their first baby. And, not long after Josh and Anna Duggar announced they were expecting baby number six.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar say they are “on cloud nine” about all of the pregnancy announcements. In response to all of this baby news, they said that the Bible is right, and “there is no greater joy than seeing your children walk in truth.”
New episodes of Counting On will return to TLC later this year.
