Joy-Anna Duggar news and rumors have been circulating since she announced that she started courting with beau Austin Forsyth. In a new interview with People Magazine, the 19-year-old reality television star opened up about her experience with Austin and shared some information about what the two do during the time that they spend together.
“We’ve gotten to experience so much already in our relationship. Lots of church ministries, road trips, hiking, hunting and remodeling houses together,” Joy-Anna Duggar said.
She and Austin met over 15 years ago when the Forsyth family moved to Arkansas and began going to the same church as the Duggars.
“It’s really special that I got to grow up with him and my family knows him really well,” Joy-Anna said.
Joy-Anna Duggar’s relationship with Austin Forsyth has been under the radar for quite some time. Although the two have only been officially courting since November, there have been a lot of rumors about their relationship and just how serious it is. A couple of weeks ago, for example, Radar Online reported that Joy-Anna has been having sex with Austin, perhaps trying to leak another Duggar scandal that could taint the family’s image.
The source claimed that Joy-Anna had to tell her mom about having sex with Austin because she supposedly had a pregnancy scare. But fear not, loyal Duggar fans!
Although these unnamed sources said that Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth have been “having sex for over a year,” it turns out that the original story came from Star Magazine, which is a fairly shifty source when it comes to celebrity news.
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth seem to be playing by the courtship rules and doing everything the way that their families would approve of — and they are really enjoying getting to know each other on a more-than-just-friends level.
Joy-Anna Duggar talked to People Magazine about how she has looked up to her older sisters — especially Jill Duggar-Dillard and Jessa Duggar-Seewald — when it comes to courting and going through the process of finding a potential spouse. Joy-Anna said that she talks to her sisters about the process and that she feels comfortable asking them questions about courting and what not.

“Watching my sisters go through that with their courtships sets a really good example. I was able to ask them just a lot of questions and wisdom about what they did and didn’t do and then just making it special. Showing him how much I appreciate him, it’s been amazing,” Joy-Anna Duggar said.
Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth are good kids who come from families with strong religious beliefs. While many fans will admit that kids are kids and that they will do things to rebel against their parents (not to mention that hormones can’t actually be controlled by what someone believes in), it seems like things are going really well for these two.
Fans of Counting On are really hopeful that this works out for Joy-Anna Duggar and that she finds love with Austin Forsyth — if that is what she desires. It’s quite possible that another Duggar engagement could be in the works this year if Joy-Anna and Austin keep courting and end up falling in love.
