As we reported yesterday, Joy-Anna Duggar is pregnant with her first child, and needless to say, the 19-year-old is very excited about becoming a mom.
Naturally, fans are already speculating about Joy-Anna's due date, but thus far, she's given no solid information with regard to how far along she is.
However, while she's remaining tight-lipped about certain details, Joy-Anna seems more than happy to share her excitement with fans.
The expectant mother posted the above photo to Instagram yesterday, along with a lengthy caption offering an update on news she received from her first sonogram.
"Austin and I are SO thankful to announce that we are parents!! Even before we were married we prayed that God would give us children and we are so blessed that he has given us this baby!" she wrote.
"Jesus is the giver of Life! The baby has arms, legs, fingers, and toes. It has a beating heart and brain waves. The baby responds to touch and is already right- or left-handed," Joy-Anna continued.
Clearly, some of this is meant to offer an update on the health of the fetus, while other portions are intended to reiterate the Duggars' stance on abortion, which is that life begins at conception, and abortion even in cases of rape and incest should be criminalized.
Her willingness to get topical in a pregnancy update post is enough to make us think there's some truth to those rumors about Joy-Anna planning a career in politics.
"The baby has its own unique fingerprints, which are different from anyone else's. All organ systems are in place!" she goes on.
Joy-Anna then quoted Psalm 139:13-16, which includes the passage:
"For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well
"This passage indicates that God Himself formed our physical features and that He did so with a wonderful plan for our lives. God knew us in the womb," she explained, adding:
"#babyforsyth #alreadyinlovewithmybaby #blessedbeyondmeasure #Jesusanswersprayers"
It seems that just as we learned about the personalities of Jill and Jessa Duggar while they were pregnant, we'll find out more about what makes Joy-Anna tick in the months to come.
We think it's safe to say she's a young woman who is passionate about her beliefs, and it seems her stances have been affirmed by the first months of her pregnancy.
We'll keep you updated on Joy-Anna's forthcoming bundle of joy as more information becomes available.
