Baby boy for the Duggar family!
It has been confirmed by PEOPLE exclusively that Joy-Anna has welcomed her first child with her husband, Austin Forsyth. The healthy baby arrived on 23rd February, born at 3:39 p.m. and measures 22 inches long, weighing 10 lbs., 3 oz. The couple has told PEOPLE that they are blessed beyond measure with the arrival of their son, Gideon Martyn Forsyth. They have said, “Looking at our child for the first time was such an incredible moment! God is so good, and we are so thankful.”
The couple tied the knot in May 2017 at Cross Church in Rogers, Arkansas and after their “I dos,” the couple jetted off to Geneva, Switzerland for their “incredible” honeymoon. In August, they have announced their pregnancy, and at that, the 20-year-old Joy-Anna has told PEOPLE that they are so happy and thankful to announce that they are expecting a baby. The “Counting On” star has said, ‘Every child is such a precious gift from God. I’m most looking forward to watching Austin as a dad and raising children together with him.’
The 24-year-old Austin has said that he is looking forward to the journey of this pregnancy and all the different stages it will bring. He said, “It’s fascinating, and I feel so blessed to be a dad! We are beyond thankful!” In December, 22-year-old Joe Duggar and his 19-year-old wife Kendra Caldwell Duggar has announced their baby news, after three months of walking down the passage. At that time, the two have said that during this season that they are celebrating the birth of Christ, they are so excited to share with them that they are expecting the gift of a child ourselves. They have said, “We’ve both always loved children and seen them as a real blessing from God. It’s so surreal to think of being parents and having our little one.”
