Joy-Anna Duggar: Latest Pic Ignites "Shotgun Wedding" Controversy

by at .

It's been two months since we learned that Joy-Anna Duggar is pregnant with her first child, and the controversy surrounding her conception date rages on.

In case you missed it, allow us to bring you up to speed on the latest goings-on within Joy-Anna's uterus:

Austin and Joy Forsyth

Joy-Anna married Austin Forsyth back in May.

Three months later, she announced that she was three months pregnant.

According to the Duggars, Joy-Anna conceived on her honeymoon, but some fans aren't buying into that version of events.

Perhaps it was the fact that she was already sporting quite a sizable baby bump in her announcement photo.

Or maybe it has something to do with the time Joy and Austin confessed to breaking courtship rules.

Whatever the reason, Duggar obsessives are convinced that Joy got married in a "shotgun wedding"--and her latest pic isn't helping her case:

Joy-Anna Duggar Birthday Pic

It's Joy's birthday this week, and to celebrate, Austin posted the above photo, along with a caption in which he gushed about his expectant wife:

"Happy birthday to the love of my life! Besides my salvation, you have been the best thing that has happened in my life!

"From being my spiritual encourager, working partner, hunting buddy, and everything in between you complete me in so many ways! I am always amazed at how much integrity and character you display in our day to day lives! I love you with all my heart!"

So what's so suspicious about Austin's fairly straightforward birthday post?

Well, some fans believe the way pic is frame is an indication that the couple has something to hide.

The Duggars typically celebrate pregnancy even more than most families.

Baby bump progression is usually meticulously documented and posted on social media for all the world to see.

So a poorly-lit tight closeup of a face is an unusual way to celebrate a Duggar woman's pregnancy.

Is it definitive evidence that Joy-Anna and Austin engaged in premarital sex?

Obviously not, but we'll probably never get that.

So you can expect fans to continue latching onto every shred of possible evidence.
