Austin Forsyth Slammed on Birthday as Joy-Anna Duggar Hides Baby Bump

By  | 

Today that Duggars get to celebrate another birthday for one of their members. Austin Forsyth, husband of Joy-Anna Duggar, turned 24, however, it wouldn’t be a Duggar birthday without a little controversy, according to Inquisitr. Fans reminded the family that they are pretty sure Joy-Anna and Austin got pregnant before their wedding.

The couple got married back in May 2017, and everything seemed all hunky-dory and very Duggar-like. Then, three short months later, Joy-Anna Duggar and her new hubby announced that they were pregnant.

Again, quick baby-making isn’t unheard of in the Duggar clan, but what is suspicious is just how big Joy-Anna’s baby bump is in her announcement photo.

Naturally, fans started talking and many believe that the two got it on before they were married. Of course, it doesn’t help that the couple suddenly moved their wedding up five months, keeping their engagement super short. Many thought that the rumors of the two’s pre-wedding pregnancy had died. But this is the internet – nothing dies on the internet.

“Happy birthday, Austin! We are so thankful to have you as a son-in-law,” the Duggar family posted on Facebook. “Having known you for many years, we have seen you grow into a man of noble character.”

Happy birthday, Austin!! We are so thankful to have you as a son-in-law! Having known you for many years, we have seen…

“Your values and Christ-likeness stand out among men of your age and we love your strong work ethic!” the post continued. “Joy did well! We love you!”

Yep, the Duggars compared their son-in-law with Christ himself. One fan pointed out that “getting Joy pregnant before marriage is very Christ-like.” Another fan reminded the family that Austin even admitted that “they had a hard time keeping it chaste” before the two got married, which seems very Christ-like.

Since the Joy-Anna and Austin announced their pregnancy on their joint Instagram account, Joy-Anna’s baby bump has been pretty shy. This could be a result of the of pre-wedding pregnancy rumors that were started by the original announcement. Now, it is pretty rude of fans to judge a woman by the size of her baby bump. However, Joy-Anna’s lack of pregnancy photos is only making people more suspicious. Is she trying to hide something?

The Counting On couple is expected to give birth in February or March 2018. She has yet to celebrate Austin’s birthday on social media.
