Joy-Anna Duggar Is Expecting Baby No. 2 Who Will Be the Next Duggar to Announce a Pregnancy?
We’re in the middle of a Duggar baby boom. Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband Austin Forsyth announced today that they are expecting another child.
Baby No. 2 for the couple, who have been married since May 2017, is due in November 2019. Their first child, a son named Gideon, was born in February 2018.
Joy-Anna isn’t the only Duggar who is expecting
Joy-Anna’s baby news comes just days after her older brother Josh and his wife Anna announced they were expecting their sixth child in the fall. Two other second-generation Duggars are also pregnant. Jessa Duggar and her husband Ben Seewald’s third child is due in June. Joseph Duggar’s wife Kendra Caldwell is pregnant with their second child.
In addition, the family’s cousin Amy Duggar King recently announced she and husband Dillon are expecting their first child.
Fans aren’t surprised by Joy-Anna’s news
The baby news doesn’t come as a huge surprise to Duggar family followers. Many were convinced that mom Michelle let news of Joy-Anna’s pregnancy slip in a blog post congratulating Josh and Anna on the addition to their family.
Michelle referred to Josh and Anna’s baby as their 16th grandchild. But fans quickly noticed that the math didn’t add up. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar currently have 12 grandchildren. At the time, only three pregnancies had been announced, which makes a total of 15 grandkids. They figured either Michelle lost count of how many kids there were, or she knew something the public didn’t.
Who will be the next Duggar to have a baby?
Now that fans know that Joy-Anna is pregnant, they’re wondering who might be the next Duggar to announce that they are expecting.
Some think Jill Duggar might be the next person to announce that a baby is on the way. When she revealed that she and husband Derick were moving into a new house, her Instagram followers suspected they needed more space for a third child.
Counting On fans also have an eye on John-David and Abbie Duggar. The couple married in November, and Duggars often announce pregnancies soon after a wedding. But the newlyweds have been willing to challenge some family traditions in the past, so perhaps there is a chance they will wait to start a family.
It’s also possible Lauren Swanson and Josiah Duggar could announce that she is pregnant. Sadly, Lauren experienced a miscarriage recently. It’s clear the couple wants to have a family, but given their recent loss, they may choose to wait to reveal any baby news.
Finally, there’s at least one Duggar who has hinted she won’t be announcing a pregnancy soon. In a recent episode of Counting On, Jinger Duggar said that she and her husband Jeremy Vuolo are focused on watching their daughter Felicity, who was born in July 2018, grow up. Given that the couple was married for more than a year before they revealed they were expecting, it seems like they’re taking things relatively slow when it comes to having kids.
