Typically, a baby is something to rejoice over in the Duggar family. But Reality TV parents Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar are keeping mum over the "surprise" pregnancy of one of their "19 Kids and Counting." A photo of pregnant Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth was leaked to Facebook and fans noted how far along she appears.No mention of the Duggars newest grandbaby was made in the final episode of "Counting On." What's with the unusual secrecy? Does it have anything to do with the rumor that the Celebrities were expecting before they married?

Duggars shelter Joy Forsyth's baby bump?

Joy and Austin haven't posted much about their baby except to share on Instagram that they were expecting. The reality television stars did share the weight of the fetus. That and the size of Joy's baby bump seemed to put the baby at an older developmental age. "Counting On" fans began counting backward and guessing that the "19 Kids and Counting" daughter may have been a month along when she married. The recent Facebook photo has folks wondering if Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are hiding an unwed pregnancy.

Radio silent Duggars puzzle fans

Normally, the Duggars are radioactive on social media. Jill Duggar Dillard and her husband Derick Dillard have a huge Twitter following.

Ben and Jessa Seewald regularly post. Jinger Duggar and her husband Jeremy Vuolo are active on Instagram and Facebook as is the Duggar Family Facebook page. So far the only mention of the unborn baby from the "Counting On" parents was to confess surprise in birthday greetings to Joy. The fact that the "19 Kids and Counting" mega-parents have been so quiet about something they hold so dear--pregnancy--has frankly shocked many followers.

Why TLC's avoidance of baby Forsyth?

Maybe a bigger surprise was the fact that there was no mention made of Joy's pregnancy in the "Counting On" season finale. Everyone knew she was expecting when it aired as she showed off the baby bump at the wedding of Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell. Show producers would normally be ecstatic over the ratings that a baby brings.

But they seem as reluctant to cover it as they are Anna Duggar and Josh Duggar after his "19 Kids and Counting" molestation and pedophilia scandal.

Are mom and baby okay?

Joy may not have gotten pregnant out of wedlock. She may be big because she's carrying multiples. But Austin specifically said they were expecting "a" baby, not more. Are there other reasons TLC and the Duggars are hushing up the pregnancy? The celebrity started putting on weight rapidly after a fairly significant weight loss. Early weight gain and maternal obesity have been linked to edema, gestational diabetes and preeclampsia and other pregnancy complications.
