Former Counting On star Joy Forsyth proudly announced to fans that she had the “best time” apart from her kids. She left four-year-old Gideon and two-year-old Evelyn behind to go out and enjoy herself. Keep reading for all of the details.
It’s a busy time in Joy’s life right now. She and her husband Austin Forsyth are expecting their third child together. The baby is due in May, and everything seems to be going pretty well. She does have to see a high-risk doctor and give herself injections due to her previous loss at 20 weeks gestation. Fortunately, aside from that, there aren’t any complications this time around.
While parenting two young kids and growing a new baby too, Joy has a lot on her plate. Her husband recognized this and made sure to treat her to some time away to rest.

On YouTube on Friday, Austin and Joy released a new video, which documented a secret birthday getaway he planned for his wife. She turned 25 late last month. At the beginning of the video, Joy and Austin dropped the kids off at his parents’ home. While they were there, Austin’s parents gave Joy a thoughtful gift, including a large candle, a gift card, and a decorative dish for the table.
Then, the couple set off on this special trip. Austin didn’t tell Joy any of the details ahead of time and just asked her to pack an overnight bag. When they were almost to their destination, Austin revealed to his wife that they were on their way to Branson, Missouri and that they would be staying at the College of the Ozarks Hotel. Then, they’re going to an amusement park called Silver Dollar City. The Duggars have gone there many times, but this is Austin and Joy Forsyth’s first time there just the two of them. They enjoyed putt-putt and shopping too.
When sharing the video, Joy wrote, “Austin took me on a surprise birthday getaway without the kids!!!! We had the best time!”
Duggar fans applaud the couple for making time for each other.
In the comments section of Joy Forsyth’s new YouTube video, fans are saying how proud they are of her for prioritizing time away with her husband. One fan said, “Glad to see you guys spending quality time as a married couple by yourselves.”
Others gave Austin a shoutout for treating his wife to such a special birthday getaway. Someone wrote, “Good job Austin. Every Mom needs a break once in a while, especially a pregnant mom.”
