Counting On: Joy-Anna and Austin’s Rainbow Baby
Joy-Anna lost a girl to a stillbirth. She was their second child and their first baby girl. Joy-Anna’s mother, Michelle Duggar, said that when Anna Duggar became pregnant after her loss, it was cured for her.
She went on to say that one baby could never replace another. But that it helped to have something to look forward to and it helped to hope. Counting on the star, Joy-Anna said she felt guilty because she was happy at first.
After she got used to the idea of having her new baby, she said it was nice to be happy again. Austin Forsyth and Joy-Anna Forsyth were both excited about the new baby. But they had to come up with a good gender revelation idea, even though the family had used so many different ways.
From balloon throwing to confetti cannons to lighting signs and more, Counting On’s Austin Forsyth and her wife Joy-Anna Forsyth had to come up with something unique. Austin said they knew Joy-Anna’s brother John David Duggar was getting his helicopter license, so they called on his help.
John David Duggar agreed to help them, and he went on the air. The family came together in a field and tried to figure out what was going to happen. Some of the Counting On cast thought something was going to explode.
Other family members talked about whether they thought the baby would be a girl or a boy. But then they looked up and saw the helicopter flying towards them. Once the helicopter was closer, the pink confetti came down from the helicopter.
