Joy-Anna Duggar and husband Austin Forsyth just announced that they are expecting their first child together. For fans of the Duggars, this is certainly no surprise, and right on schedule for their family. Since the pair got married at the end of May this year, fans expected an announcement sooner rather than later. All of the Duggar daughters, except Jinger, have announced that they were expecting a baby around three months after their wedding date, and the newlyweds are definitely no exceptions.

However, rumors have been swirling that Joy-Anna was actually pregnant before the wedding date, breaking a cardinal Duggar rule.

How far along is Joy?

Joy-Anna Duggar stated in People today that she is three months along, however many fans are skeptical of this claim.

Joy-Anna Duggar lost a lot of weight before she got married, but seemed to put weight back on right before her wedding. The photoshoot that People did in Joy-Anna and Austin's home seems to suggest that she is further along than three months, as many fans have remarked that her breasts and belly are fairly large for someone who is just out of their first trimester. It was also suspected that she might be pregnant before her wedding due to the fact that most photos of Joy-Anna and Austin showed her with her hand or arm in front of her belly. Her recent photoshoot for People was no exception, as Joy-Anna's arm was over her own belly, which some think was to hide the fact that she's further along than she wants people to think.

Others think that the wedding was moved from the fall to the spring because Joy-Anna accidentally got pregnant before the wedding date.

The wedding was moved rather quickly, and many have stated that the pair's decor seemed to be very much an autumn theme, despite the fact that they tied the knot in May.

Riding dirt bikes while pregnant

Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband Austin recently posted a photo to Instagram of the pair on dirt bikes, while she stated that she loved to try "new things with her man." However, the star has now been heavily criticized for this photo due to the fact that she was obviously at least a couple of months pregnant when it was taken. While some fans will state that it is possible she didn't know she was pregnant at the time, it is incredibly unlikely, as the pair have just announced their pregnancy to the world not long after, with photos of her already showing. It is difficult to say whether or not she was showing while riding the dirt bikes, as she was wearing a long, flowing dress.
