Joy Forsyth Glows In A Black Dress At 12 Weeks Pregnant

The former Counting On star cut a trendy figure in a loose-fitting black minidress paired with an open denim jacket. She wore her long locks pulled back into a low ponytail. She finished off the casual-chic look with a beige baseball cap.

Taking to Instagram to post a bunch of selfies, Joy glowed as she leaned forward in a close-up snap taken from a low angle. The image spotlighted her warm smile and showed off the jewel neckline of her dress, embellished with a dainty gold necklace.

The 25-year-old added two more shots that captured her dress in its entirety and revealed it hemmed just above the knee. Cradling her baby bump, she showed off her beaming smile and puckered her lips. The mother-of-two is certainly rocking her maternity style now that baby no. 3 is on the way!

Joy Forsyth Shows Off Her ‘Messy Yard’

Posing backed by a lovely view of towering trees beneath a clear blue sky, the reality star gave fans a peek into her “messy yard.” In all fairness, everything looked top-notch, with Austin being the only clue that there was yardwork afoot. The 28-year-old son-in-law of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar was grinding away at a workbench in the far background.

In her caption, Joy noted that Austin was working “on getting projects done” while the rest of the Forsyth clan enjoyed some leisure time. “Takin’ selfies in our messy yard and watching the kids jump on the trampoline,” she wrote.

Fans were all over the endearing share, which got over 26,400 likes overnight. Unsurprisingly, the Duggar family showed up promptly to shower Joy with love in the comments. “So adorbs as always sis!” said Jill Dillard, while Jinger Vuolo told her she looked “stunning.”

Fellow reality star Carlin Bates Stewart also chimed in, telling her she was “beautiful.” 

As for Joy’s less famous Instagram followers, people were thrilled by the impromptu maternity shoot and congratulated the happy couple. Some pointed out Joy sported “quite a belly for only 12 weeks,” which gave rise to speculation she might be carrying twins.

“That belly came out of nowhere! So excited for you!!” read one message.

Another Instagrammer reassured the expecting mother she’s got nothing to worry about when it comes to her yard: “These are the perfect things! A clean yard isn’t everything! Letting the kids be kids is memories!”

Joy’s Heartbreaking Tribute To Her ‘Angel Baby’

Joy and Austin Forsyth tied the knot in 2017. The following year, they welcomed their first child, son Gideon, now 4. Joy’s second pregnancy in 2019 resulted in a miscarriage. She lost the baby, Annabelle, halfway through the pregnancy. The couple expanded their family in 2020 with daughter Evelyn Mae, now 2. In early October, they announced they were expecting again and shared ultrasound photos on Instagram.

The same day her new baby-bump pics went up, Joy shared a heartbreaking tribute to her “angel baby” in her Instagram Stories on what would have been her due date. She posted a snap of Annabelle’s “perfect” toes along with a picture of her and Austin at the hospital.

“Annabelle Elise would have been 3 years old today,” she wrote. “She was born on July 1, 2019, at 20 weeks gestation. She was perfect.”
