Here’s Why Duggar Fans Think Joy Anna Will Have As Many Kids As her Mom

Joy Anna Duggar and her husband, Austin Forsyth, just announced that they’re expecting their second child. Everyone seemed to be incredibly happy for the two, and some fans immediately likened Joy to her mother, Michelle Duggar. Here’s why some fans think Joy is the most likely to follow in her mother’s footsteps with 19 kids.

Duggar was only 19 when she married Forsyth

The Duggar children are known for getting married very young. They also tend to have very short engagements and even shorter courtships. But when Duggar married Forsyth at just 19, fans were surprised she was still a teenager on her wedding day. Most Duggars get married in their early 20s, so a 19-year-old bride was young — even for them. Plus, Duggar and Forsyth had actually intended to get married in October, but they moved their wedding up by five months and started trying for babies right away. The two have definitely moved quickly in their relationship.

Duggar and Forsyth recently announced they’re expecting a second child this year

Duggar gave birth to her first child, Gideon Forsyth, in February of last year. She got pregnant as soon as she was married, and some fans even suspected she was pregnant before the wedding, which is what prompted the two to move the date up (that was never confirmed). On an episode of Counting On, Duggar and Forsyth hinted that they were hoping to have another baby in 2019. And recently, Duggar was caught wearing a maternity dress on her Instagram account, and fans didn’t overlook it. Finally, after a lot of speculating, Duggar and Forsyth announced that they would welcome their second child in November 2019.

Fans think that with two babies by 22, she’s on her way to 19 kids

Duggar will turn 22 in October, which means she’ll have just celebrated her own birthday when her little one arrives. Although everyone seemed incredibly happy for Duggar, fans couldn’t help but compare her to her mother. “You guys will probably end up with more than 19 in the end! That was so quick!” one user wrote. “I think she or Kendra will be the one to have as many children as Michelle and Jim Bob!” another person commented. The comments were almost entirely positive, which is always exciting, but people couldn’t help but notice how quickly the two were welcoming their second child.

Fans also suspect Kendra Duggar may have a lot of kids, too

Kendra Duggar, who is married to Joseph Duggar, also just announced that she’s expecting her second baby — and she is even younger than Joy Duggar. However, things weren’t totally positive on Kendra Duggar’s post. Fans seemed concerned that she’d have two babies by her 21st birthday. “It’s just sad to me because none of them get to enjoy ANYTHING for any time at all,” one user wrote. Others suggested that Duggar seemed far too young to already be pregnant with her second child. However, the Duggar family has always done things a bit differently, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that they are all very young mothers.
