Carlin Bates Stewart and Joy-Anna Duggars still the best of friends

The two reality TV stars share many common experiences. As Carlin put it in her birthday message, they both walked “down the aisle,” and they became “mommies.” Well, Carlin’s still carrying her first baby, but Joy-Anna birthed her gorgeous little boy Gideon a few years ago. Obviously close, Carlin also shared how hard she found it when she saw her friend Joy-Anna lose her baby earlier this year.

TV Shows Ace reported at the time that she said on Instagram, “I wish there were words to express how broken-hearted I am for my best friend. Seeing her give birth to her little girl, Annabell Elise, and knowing that she would never be able to hold her again while on earth just brings tears to my eyes.”

Meanwhile, for Carlin, things look okay with her first pregnancy. Romper reminds us that Carlin’s baby already got a gender reveal and a name. Her little girl’s name is Layla Rae Stewart.

On a happier note, Carlin remembered the happy times they shared as kids. She noted on her birthday greeting, that they “played in the dirt as kids.”

Plus, “You have been my best friend through it all! I don’t know where I’d be without you! You’ve been there to laugh with me and to cry with me. You’ve encouraged me and challenged me. You’ve been the best friend anyone could ever hope to have! Happy birthday, Joy! Love you big!”

Naturally, Joy-Anna replied to the post. She said, “THANK YOU, CARLIN!!!! I love you more than I can express!”
