Joy-Anna Duggar announces pregnancy with baby bump photo

Another Duggar baby is on the way!

Joy-Anna Duggar, who wed Austin Forsyth earlier this summer, is already pregnant with her first child, the two announced Wednesday. Things are certainly moving quickly for the young couple: The two tied the knot in May, less than three months after they got engaged -- but they're nothing but excited.

“We’re so happy and thankful to announce that we’re expecting a baby!” Joy-Anna told People. “Every child is such a precious gift from God. I’m most looking forward to watching Austin as a dad and raising children together with him.”

New photos show the two showing off Duggar's baby bump in a fitted purple tee.

Duggar and Forsyth married in Arkansas in front of family and friends before jetting off to Switzerland for their honeymoon. Not long later, they made their way to Israel to celebrate their first month as a married couple.

“I’m really looking forward to the journey of this pregnancy and all the different stages it will bring,” Forsyth said. “It’s really exciting and I feel so blessed to be a dad! We are beyond thankful!”

The "Counting On" star's rapid moves from fiance to wife to mother is nothing new for the Duggar family, where most of Joy-Anna's older siblings are already married with young children. Older brother Joseph is next in line for a family celebration -- he got engaged to Kendra Caldwell at Joy-Anna's nuptials after a few months of courting.

Strangest Duggar family rules
The Duggars are only permitted to join social media after they're engaged to be married. Yup, you read that right -- no ring, no Instagram. Jinger launched her Instagram account just after announcing her engagement to Jeremy Vuolo.
The strict social media rule means that oldest daughter Jana (far right) is unable to have any social media accounts, as she's still single at 27.
The only permitted show of physical affection before marriage are side hugs. That means that the kids' very first kisses are on their wedding days. Jessa and her new husband decided to keep theirs a little private: "We didn’t do ours on stage," she said. "We had ours in private after the ceremony. We ran out and then went to a room by ourselves. That was really special for us."
Although sex is forbidden before marriage, the Duggar parents expect that once vows are exchanged, the lovemaking commences -- often. "You need to always be available when he calls," Michelle has said.
Nearly all dates must be chaperoned by parents Jim Bob and Michelle. If neither parent is available, an older sibling will tag along to keep an eye on things.
Duggar daughters are required to exclusively wear dresses and skirts -- so fans were stunned to see newly-married Jinger wearing shorts and pants! According to reports, her husband gave her permission to do so.
All texts are group texts. Yup! There are no private convos going on here. One example: When Ben Seewald jokingly texted fiance Jessa "Give me a ring," dad Jim Bob was looped in to quickly respond, "No ring yet."  
This one's a given. There is no smoking or drinking to be had at any times with the Duggars.
This may not be an explicit rule, but according to the Duggar daughters, mom Michelle always has the house stocked with pregnancy tests for her married daughters.
The family does not approve of Halloween, reportedly saying that magic and witches are representative of a "demonic realm God wants us to stay away from."
No bikinis for this family -- or really, any average swimsuits at all. "It's just too hard for the guys to try and keep their eyes averted." Michelle has said. Although they've previously said beach trips are forbidden, the family did hit the coast in 2016.
