Congratulations to the Counting On star!
On Monday, Feb. 26, 2018, People magazine shared the news that Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband, Austin Forsyth, welcomed their first child together. According to the magazine’s report, Duggar gave birth to a baby boy at 3:39 p.m. on Feb. 23. The couple’s son measured 22 inches in length and weighed 10 lbs, 3 oz.
As for the newborn’s name, the pair named their son Gideon Martyn.
Speaking to People, Duggar and Forsyth, who married in May 2017, said, “We are blessed beyond measure with the arrival of our son, Gideon Martyn Forsyth.” They added, “Looking at our child for the first time was such an incredible moment! God is so good, and we are so thankful.”
As Nicki Swift previously reported, Duggar announced her pregnancy back in late August. “We’re so happy and thankful to announce that we’re expecting a baby! Every child is such a precious gift from God,” Duggar, now 20, told People magazine at the time. “I’m most looking forward to watching Austin as a dad and raising children together with him.”
Congrats again to the new parents.
