Ahead of “Counting On” returning to TLC next month, star Joy-Anna Duggar (now Forsyth) shared an updated photo of her baby bump on Wednesday and revealed to fans how far along she is in her pregnancy.

Joy shared the pregnancy update via an Instagram post on an account she shares with her husband, Austin Forsyth. “30 weeks,” she captioned a shot showing off her growing bump while sporting a big smile. The caption also revealed that Joy is officially in her third trimester and is expecting a baby girl this summer.

In the comment section, Joy expressed her desire for her friend and fellow reality TV personality “Bringing Up Bates” star Carlin Bates to meet her and Austin’s daughter. “I can’t wait to meet this little girl!!! You look so gorgeous,” Carlin wrote. In response, Joy posted, “Thank you! I cannot wait to meet her either!!”

Joy’s latest update comes after she posted a photo of her and Austin’s 2-year-old son Gideon laying on her stomach in May. “Apparently my bump makes a pretty good pillow!” Joy captioned the sweet shot. Weeks earlier, Joy shared another bump photo on Instagram and revealed that their baby’s name was undecided.

“We’re not deciding on a name until she’s born,” Joy wrote, adding, “but she is already our little princess!”

Joy and Austin announced the pregnancy in March on their YouTube channel. The 11-minute video shows the couple announcing to Joy’s family that they are expecting and expressing their fears of suffering another miscarriage. As previously reported, the couple lost their daughter Annabell in July 2019 when Joy was 20 weeks pregnant.

Joy and Austin’s baby girl is due to arrive in August. Fans can catch up with the couple when “Counting On” returns to TLC with new episodes on Tuesday, July 7, at 8 p.m. EDT.
