The Duggar family shared photos from Joy-Anna Duggar’s recent baby shower – a celebration of the imminent arrival of grandchild number 18 for Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
Earlier this year, Joy-Anna Duggar revealed that she was looking forward to it once again. She suffered a devastating loss last summer when her daughter was born at only 20 weeks of gestation. Now only four weeks before the next baby’s birth.

Surprisingly, Jill Duggar was there for her sister’s baby shower. There were pictures of the sisters together even before the family posted them on social media. Despite news of a rift between Jill and her family, there still seems to be love between the sisters.
Jinger Duggar wasn’t in town for the baby shower. She is currently on hold after having a miscarriage last fall. It’s not shocking that she didn’t want to travel because of the state of the country and the coronavirus pandemic.
All the other sisters were present along with some of her sisters-in-law. The photos of Lauren Swanson helping to hang the decorations were included in those released on the Duggar family’s account. Kendra Caldwell and Abbie Grace Burnett seemed to have disappeared.
Carlin Bates was also part of the festivities. She was a great support for Joy-Anna Duggar and came to town when she lost her first child last year. The two have been best friends for years and seem to keep their promise to be there for each other in every possible way.
In a few weeks, Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth will welcome their baby girl. She announced her pregnancy earlier this year on YouTube. Counting on the fact that viewers had speculated for weeks that she would welcome a new baby girl, and before the show’s debut, Joy-Anna decided to take control of her narrative.
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth are no longer filming Counting On. Derick Dillard confirmed that once the season aired. They chose to appear in various episodes and for the occasional shoot, but it seems that most of their material is published on YouTube.
