The Forsyths are officially a family of four!
Counting On stars Joy and Austin Forsyth announced on Monday that they welcomed their second child, a baby girl, last week. People reports the baby girl was born without any complications and both she and Joy are doing great.
“To say my heart is full is an understatement,” Joy shared on Instagram. “We have been dreaming of this day and are so happy to announce that our baby girl arrived August 21 at 2:12pm weighing 8lbs 5oz and is 19.5 [inches] long! She has the best personality, is easy going and loves to be held!

Yes… it’s true! @austin4site and I are PREGNANT again!😍👶🏼💝 . Ahhh!!!🥰👏🏼 It’s been quite the crazy journey these last few months, but we are so thankful that mom and baby are healthy! . We will give a more detailed update soon, but for now, go to our YouTube channel to find out the GENDER and to watch this journey we’ve been on!💙💖 . Link in bio!!
Baby Forsyth, whose name has yet to be revealed, joins big brother Gideon, 2.
Last month in a video posted to the the Forsyth’s YouTube channel, Joy talked about her upcoming birth, revealing that she planned to deliver her baby at the hospital unlike her first baby, whom she delivered at home. Joy also opened up about her family not being able to be present for her daughter’s birth due to the pandemic.
“I’m torn because with all this C0VID stuff, which I totally understand why, but it’s just hard because my mom’s not going to be able to be there, and my sisters aren’t going to be able to be at my birth,” she said. “It’s just going to be Austin and I.
“But hopefully we can get a room that has a window and maybe they can come see her through the window,” she continued. “That would be really special if they could at least see her the day she was born, because my parents have always been there for me and Austin’s parents, so we’ll see how that works out.”
The Duggar family is set to expand even more in the coming months, as Joe and Kendra Duggar announced last week that they are expecting their third baby and Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo are currently expecting baby number two.
