The exciting news is here and Joy-Anna Duggar Forsyth had her baby boy. People shared the news that Joy's little boy is here. The couple didn't even share what they were having with fans and now everyone is super excited to hear that it was a little boy. Joy and Austin actually said that they wanted to wait until the baby got here to find out the sex of the baby.

Details of the baby

He was born on February 23, 2018, to Austin and Joy. Their son was born at 3:39 p.m., measuring 22 inches long and weighing 10 lbs., 3 oz. There was a lot of talk about how far along Joy looked, but the fact that her baby was so big would explain part of why she looked so big toward the end of her pregnancy.

The couple shared saying, "We are blessed beyond measure with the arrival of our son, Gideon Martyn Forsyth. Looking at our child for the first time was such an incredible moment! God is so good, and we are so thankful." This is their first child, and so no word yet on if they plan to have a theme for the names of their children. Joy and the baby are doing great so far. People shared a photo of them and they look super happy.

Babies for the Duggar family

There are so many babies coming for the Duggar family this year. Joseph and Kendra Duggar got married and pregnant right away.

They already shared that they have a baby boy on the way. Rumors are always flying that Jill and Jessa are pregnant, but neither one has admitted to having their third baby on the way. Jinger Vuolo is expecting her first child with her husband Jeremy. This is going to make for a very exciting year for the Duggar Family.

Josiah Duggar is also in a new courtship but hasn't actually proposed yet.

Things are constantly changing for the Duggars with new babies on the way and new marriages. Joy and Austin's baby has everyone excited and hopefully, they will show some of the details of the birth on the new season of "Counting On." The fans have been waiting for this show and the return is finally here. They may end up doing a special about the baby a bit early, but fans will just have to wait and see how it all goes down.

It seems like Joy and Austin might have waited to announce the baby until the day that the new season of "Counting On" would be starting to air on TLC, which does happen tonight.
