Joy-Anna Duggar is nothing if not very, very open on Instagram.

This has always been the case, throughout both good and bad moments in the reality star’s life, most notably of late when Joy-Anna and husband Austin Forsyth tragically suffered a miscarriage.

This occurred five months into Duggar’s pregnancy.

And while the couple will likely never fully move on from this horrific incident, it is nice to now see that Joy-Anna and Austin are having a bit more fun on social media.

For example, Duggar just shared a photo of her soulmate doing a bit of welding in what appears to be the couple’s garage at home.

As a caption, she wrote the following:

“Austin is a man of MANY skills and welding is one of them," adding the hashtags #handsomeworker and #hotstuff along with these sweet words.

Perhaps we’re reading too much into this message, and perhaps we just have a dirty mind, but considering the above hashtags and just the phrasing of this compliment… it certainly seems like Joy-Anna is giving props to Austin for his prowess between the sheets, don’t you think?

If you know what we mean, that is.

Duggar and Forsyth, who got married in May of 2017, are the parents to a one-and-a-half-year old named Gideon.

The reality star had announced that she was expecting her second child with husband Austin in May…

… but, unfortunately, on July 3, the parents disclosed the heartbreaking news on their Instagram page that they had miscarried this daughter.

"We had gone in for our 20-week ultrasound and gender reveal. It was a baby girl," Austin and Joy-Anna wrote at the time, adding in painful detail:

Although we don’t understand why, God has given us unexplainable peace and comfort during this very difficult time. Yes, it still hurts and we have cried countless tears, but we know that we can trust the Lord.

In the words of King David after the loss of his baby, “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me” (2 Sam 12:23)

We don’t grieve as those who have no hope because we trust that we will see this little one again.

The couple later shared a truly heart-shattering snapshot of themselves cradling their stillborn child.

They also confirmed that they had named her Annabell Elise.

“We only had her for 20 weeks, Life is fragile and precious," wrote Duggar and Forsyth as a caption to the picture below, adding:

"So thankful the Lord gave her to us for that short time! She will be in our hearts forever! Thank you all for your love and support! We can feel the prayers!"

In the few weeks since the miscarriage news was relayed to fans and followers, Joy-Anna has slowly but surely returned to social media.

She posted one photo of herself and her husband, writing that Austin is her "anchor," along with a photo of a sleeping and adorable Gideon.

We continue to send our thoughts to the couple over the loss of their daughter and wish them and their family nothing but the best.

Hang in there, you two. You are legitimately beloved by supporters around the world.
