The Duggar family is certainly expanding! There are currently five Duggar women pregnant, including cousin Amy (Duggar) King, who is welcoming her baby in October. The Duggar family recently celebrated the upcoming arrival and gathered for a photo opp featuring all five baby bumps, though one family member was noticeably absent.
Joy-Anna (Duggar) Forsyth was not part of the picture for a heartbreaking reason and fans took notice. Joy-Anna her husband, Austin, lost their baby girl, Annabell Elise, when she was stillborn at 20 weeks, the couple shared last month.
While there were many fans who delighted in Amy’s picture, some fans noted that they empathized with Joy-Anna as she’s going through this difficult time.
@adoptingesther commented, “I can’t help but feel the pain for Joy here.”
@alexa.r.green said, “You all are glowing, heart still breaks for Joy.”
And @sissytheterrible2018 said, “my heart still breaks for Joy too, even though the others all look very beautiful and glowing.”
Joy has shared that she has good days and bad days. She was able, though, to attend Amy’s baby sprinkle party with the family.
In addition to Amy, Lauren (Swanson) Duggar, Kendra (Caldwell) Duggar, Anna Duggar, and Abbie (Burnett) Duggar are all pregnant. All but Amy are expecting baby girls.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
