The Duggar family is about to birth a small army of additional grandbabies, and Joy-Anna Duggar’s pregnancy is only the latest.

The entire family is giving Joy-Anna a congratulatory shout-out.

And despite rumors of fallout between Jill Duggar and her folks, Jill is also congratulating Joy-Anna on Baby #2!

"Congrats [Joy-Anna and Austin]," Jill gushed on Instagram after Joy-Anna made the announcement on Wednesday, May 1.

She included red heart emojis and clapping emojis to reinforce her love and approval.

"So super excited for y’all!!" Jill expressed.

Jill herself is also a mother of two, and is excited at the idea of Joy-Anna’s 14-month-old son becoming an older sibling.

She wrote: "Gideon is gonna be a great big bro!"

Joy-Anna and Austin took to Instagram to share the merry news.

"Some of you have guessed, some of you had no clue…" their caption began.

They continued with a rhyme: "November, 2019 Baby Forsyth #2 is Due!!"

A little serial killer-y, but mostly just cute.

Husband and wife raved that they "cannot wait to meet this new little one!"

"Gideon is going to be such a great big brother!!" the pair predicted.


They also released a statement to Us Weekly, though the first line distracted many fans from the actual news.

"Our favorite math is addition," the statement bizarrely began.

(We don’t want to fixate on that line, but … it’s just very odd)

The statement continued: "and we are very excited to share that the Forsyth family is adding a member!"

"Marriage," they expressed. "And being a mom and dad to Gideon has already far exceeded our expectations."

"We are looking forward to loving another little one," Joy-Anna and Austin raved.

Of course!

"And," they added, they look forward to "seeing what special dynamic he or she brings to our family."

It can take years for them to get the complete picture, but even babies can have distinct personalities.

"Table for 4 sounds perfect!" the statement concluded.

Jim Bob and Michelle also released a statement on the Duggar family website.

"The Bible is right," they began in a very on-brand fashion. "There is no greater JOY than seeing your children walk in truth."

Is that a play on Joy-Anna’s name?

“We have loved watching Austin and Joy build their lives together as a married couple," they wrote. "And as parents."

"Their love for God, each other, Gideon, and others is genuine and inspiring," the grandparents expressed.

"We could not be more thankful," they gushed. "As we watch their lives unfold day by day."

"A new baby will bring even more joy and blessings to their lives and ours," Jim Bob and Michelle predicted.

"We are on cloud nine," they concluded. "That another grandbaby will make a debut in 2019!"

Joy-Anna gave birth to little Gideon in February of 2018.

Despite her plans for a home birth, she ended up having a C-section because he was a breech baby.

Better luck with baby number two, girl!

Childbirth is no laughing matter.
