Joy-Anna Duggar Talks Motherhood, Marriage: I Can’t Stop Smiling!

Duggar women are raised to believe that the primary reason they were put on this planet is to put more people on this planet.

It’s a central tenet of the “quiverfull movement” – of which the Duggars are devout adherents – that Christians should focus all their energy on the “be fruitful and multiply” passage of the Bible.

And it seems no Duggar female is more committed to testing the limits of her uterus than Joy-Anna Duggar.

Joy, you may recall, unveiled her sizable baby bump just three months after marrying Austin Forsyth.

The one event followed so closely on the heels of the other, that many began to suspect that Joy had gotten pregnant before her wedding, which would’ve been the stuff of scandal, as premarital sex is a major no-no for all Duggars.

(Yes, they’re not allowed to have sex at all before marriage, and once they’re hitched, they can only have sex for purposes of procreation. These folks have seriously antagonistic relationships with their genitals.)

We might never get a satisfactory resolution to the great debate regarding Joy-Anna’s “shotgun wedding,” but whatever the timeline, it seems the 20-year-old newlywed is loving every second of first-time motherhood.

Joy gave birth to her first child – a boy named Gideon – back in February, and ever since, she’s been gushing about the lad every chance she gets.

She posted the above photo to Instagram this week in order to mark the occasion of Gideon turning two months old.

“We love you Gideon!” Duggar captioned the pic.

“You make your dad and I smile SO much.”

It’s a pretty standard Duggar baby update, but in Joy’s case, it was greeted with more enthusiasm than usual.

Joy and Austin have both been uncharacteristically quiet on social media the past few weeks, and because Duggar obsessives scrutinize the family’s every move, some took it as a sign of trouble in paradise.

It turns out, however, that Joy and Austin have actually been busy spreading the word of how awesome their marriage is.

Yes, it seems the Forsyths have been doing something called “giving testimony,” which means they’ve been speaking to assembled groups of young folk about how marriage has brought them closer to God, or something.

We guess if there is an advantage to making people wait until they’re hitched to knock boots, that’s it:

They’re much more likely to feel that marriage is totally the best thing on the freakin’ planet.

Ne-Yo Can’t Stop Smiling on Family Trip to Disney’s California Adventure

Ne-Yo’s face is probably hurting this morning … all that smiling has surely taken its toll. The singer took his fam bam to Disney’s California Adventure on Tuesday … and the bunch couldn’t look happier. Ne-Yo was all smiles as he and the kiddos…


Kanye West is Almost Smiling in This Family Photo!

Kim Kardashian has shared a new picture on her Instagram and Facebook pages, and it’s worth noting for two reasons:

1. It features Kim, her husband and both of their kids, something we do not see very often.

2. Kanye West is smiling in the snapshot. Or at least smirking! For real!

See for yourself:

Amazing, right?

Kim shared the photo along with a very simple caption that read “Happy Holidays.”

It’s nothing too special or newsworthy, but this is Kim Kardashian and this is social media, so the photo has been Liked over 72,000 times in just a few hours on Facebook.

Kardashian and West have actually lived a mostly quiet life in 2017.

They concluded last year on quite the low note, of course, with Kim getting robbed at gunpoint in Paris and then Kanye suffering a nervous breakdown mere weeks later.

These traumatic events left both stars shaken.

For a few months afterward, divorce rumors plagued Kimye, as multiple outlets and tabloids wrote that these incidents were simply too much for the couple to handle.

Word spread that the pair were drifting apart.

There was even a rumor just this month that Kardashian was ready to file for divorce.

We aren’t buying it, however. Why would we?!?

First of all, Kanye just gifted his wife with over $ 500,000 in stocks, which does not seem like the actions one would take if one were about to get a divorce.

Second, Kanye actually struck some poses for the family Christmas card, as you can see above.

He didn’t make the cut for the final version, which left us a little confused and concerned, but still. There’s one final, very strong reason to believe this romance is doing just fine.

And that reason is this:

Kim and Kanye will soon welcome child number-three!

As has now been confirmed by Kardashian herself, a surrogate is pregnant with the baby because doctors deemed it too dangerous for Kim to give birth for a third time.

She actually may be due any day now.

Would Kardashian and West really make this plan if there was any doubt about their romance?

If they believed for one second that they weren’t staying together?

We think everyone knows the answers to these questions.

Over the next couple months, meanwhile, Kim and Kanye will welcome their child… Khloe Kardashian will give birth… AND Kylie Jenner will give birth.

So while 2017 was actually pretty tame as far as this famous family goes, it’s already pretty clear that they’ll be back to making headlines of every kind in 2018.

Buckle up.


Kendra Caldwell: Pregnant and Smiling in Duggar Christmas Photo!

Even though Joy-Anna Duggar is still being hidden away by her own family, the Duggars are at least willing to put Kendra Caldwell on display.

In fact, this is the first image of Kendra that we’ve seen since her pregnancy announcement.

As you’ll see for yourself, she’s positively glowing, folks. And fans are demanding to see more of her. …

As we learned earlier this month, Kendra Caldwell is pregnant with Joseph Duggar’s baby.

She’s believed to be approximately three months along at this point.

Which means that the two of them worked fast in terms of getting pregnant — getting pregnant only a couple of months after they tied the knot.

We might not approve of how Joseph proposed to Kendra (maybe the family put him up to it, but you do not propose at someone else’s wedding), but the Duggars seem to approve of how quickly they’re getting the baby-making underway.

Check out their photo!

Kendra really does look beautiful.

And though this candid moment of opening presents (which you can see scattered around everywhere) isn’t exactly a posed portrait, you can see how excited this couple is to become parents.

(Also, let’s be honest: they were probably just enjoying opening their gifts. Even if the Duggars can’t really give out good things like “worldly” blu ray sets or whatever, presents are presents)

We’re not the only ones who were struck by how good Kendra looks.

As we mentioned, a lot of fans commented about wanting to see more of Kendra.

“Kendra is definitely glowing pregnancy suits her … I love these two I wish they had their own show.”

Another wrote:

“They need their own spinoff!!!!”

Kendra and Joseph don’t have their own social media account (and when they do, it will almost inevitably be one of those creepy joint-marital-accounts), but hopefully the warm wishes got back to them.

Highlighting Kendra during her pregnancy does, very naturally, bring to mind that Joy-Anna is being all but cloistered at the moment.

Even for the Duggar family’s big Christmas photo, Joy-Anna Duggar’s baby bump was hidden by the way that they had her pose.

It’s long been suspected that Joy-Anna and Austin Forsyth violated the Duggar family’s absurd courtship rules by having (gasp!) premarital sex, but Joy-Anna claims that she got pregnant on their honeymoon.

So perhaps the Duggars were hiding Joy-Anna’s “shamefully” large baby bump?

Of course, if the Duggars were planning on hidding shameful things, they wouldn’t have put infamous child-molester Josh Duggar on display the way that they did.

But most of the Duggar family is controversial in one way or another.

That’s part of what makes them, as a whole, so captivating to viewers.

But whatever we may think of the family itself, Kendra Caldwell — who has only just recently joined the Duggar clan — looks absolutely beautiful and we can’t wait to keep up with her pregnancy as it progresses.
