The title of Joy-Anna and Austin’s new video is “sad times in our family.” Naturally, that was concerning and fans were nervous about what might have happened.

Austin & Joy-Anna Forsyth are hit with a tragic loss.

About halfway through the video, Joy-Anna and Austin’s moods shifted and they sat down on the couch to give fans the full story.

Joy-Anna started the conversation and said, “It’s been a very long week. It’s been about a week since we got a devastating call.”

Austin explained that they had gotten a “pretty big snow” and that they had gone to his dad’s home, and his grandmother was there too. The kids had a chance to sled with their relatives and then spent the night there. Joy-Anna, Austin, Gideon, and Evelyn left to go to church. After church, they received a phone call from Austin’s father.

Austin explained, “My grandmother passed away. It was really unexpected.” He added, “She was 83-and-a-half and she lived a good long life.” He acknowledged her grandkids and great-grandkids, then said, “We’re really grateful we got to spend her last few days with her, but it’s just really sad. Her husband passed away about three years ago, so she’d been living on her own.”

According to Joy-Anna Forsyth, she was “feisty.” Austin said that she was still driving and still “had all her wits.” As he reflected on her lovely personality, he said, “It’s been a really sad week.”

Also in the video, the couple explained that their kids are a bit too young to understand what’s going on. Gideon is just four years old and Evelyn is two years old. Joy-Anna and Austin were also hoping that their new baby boy on the way would get to meet his great-grandmother.

Austin added, “It really just came out of left field. We didn’t see this coming at all.”
