Joy-Anna Duggar’s YouTube Video Once Again Proves Jana Duggar Helps Out the Most With the Young Kids
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth recently welcomed their daughter, Evelyn Mae, into the world. And because the couple is no longer on Counting On, they’re sharing the ins and outs of their lives via YouTube.
Joy-Anna posted a recent video showing her taking Evelyn home from the hospital and meeting her son, Gideon, for the first time. It’s quite apparent in the video that Joy-Anna’s oldest sister, Jana Duggar, takes major responsibility in taking care of all the little ones in the Duggar family, though. Here’s why.

Joy-Anna’s providing her fans with plenty of content on her YouTube channel. We’ve seen everything from her pregnancy announcement with her daughter to her time at the hospital. Finally, on Oct. 2, 2020, Joy-Anna posted a video showing her and Austin bringing little Evelyn home.
“We are headed home with our sweet, little baby girl!” Joy-Anna told her camera while in the car. “I feel like we’ve been in a different land, a different world, the last few days. Now, coming back to reality and actually coming home … it’s really setting in.”
Joy-Anna then explained that while she and Austin were at the hospital, her siblings took care of Gideon, who’s just 2 years old. “We’re gonna go meet up with them first,” Joy-Anna explained. “This is crazy. I don’t know how he’s gonna respond, I really don’t. I don’t think he’s gonna be understanding that it’s our baby, but I cannot wait for him to meet her.”

Finally, Joy-Anna meets up with older sister Jana and a few of her younger sisters. And Gideon is in tow as well. While Joy-Anna and Austin hoped for a happy meeting between Gideon and Evelyn, Gideon threw a tantrum as soon as he was taken out of the car.
Once Gideon started crying, Jana came to the rescue. She scooped Gideon up and helped facilitate a happy meeting between him and the baby.
“I don’t know why he keeps doing this,” Jana tells Joy-Anna as she’s trying to hold Gideon despite his squirming and crying. She then tells Gideon that he’s “being a stinker.”
The conversation then turns to Evelyn’s name and who guessed it right within the family. Gideon continues on with his tantrum while in Jana’s arms, and Jana takes him back to the car while Joy-Anna continues on with her conversation.
Jana plays a major role in taking care of her younger siblings
Jana’s excellent with kids, as the majority of her 18 siblings are younger than her. When growing up, the older Duggars were responsible for helping their younger siblings with their household chores and schoolwork. And we can’t forget that Jana still lives under Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s roof at 30 years old because she’s unmarried. This means she’s certainly continuing to help out with all the young kids in the home.
While Jana is certainly a great help to her parents, fans would love for her to leave home and get out on her own whether she’s married or not. She spoke to Us Weekly about what she desires for her own future, too.
“Yes, I long to be married and one day I think that will come, but I think … I’m just also just trying to stay busy with whatever comes along my path, and just making the most of these single years,” she said.
While Jana might be excellent with children, we’re hoping she’s spending as much time as she needs doing her own thing!
