Joy-Anna Duggar Biography
(Reality TV Star)
Birthday: October 28, 1997 (Scorpio)
Born In: Tontitown, Arkansas
Joy-Anna Duggar is an American reality TV personality who shot to limelight with her family’s reality show, ‘19 Kids and Counting’. Joy is the ninth child of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, who have 19 children in total. She is the fifth daughter of the couple, which has nine daughters and 10 sons. Joy first started appearing in the show in 2008 when it was titled, ‘14 Children and Pregnant Again’. However, the family expanded and the name of the show had to be changed. Joy is now married to Austin Martyn Forsyth and has a son with him. She currently stars in the family spin-off series, ‘Jill & Jessa: Counting On,’ which has been rechristened, ‘Counting On’. The Duggars caught the public attention with their overwhelming family size of 21 members, including parents. Going against the trend, the senior Duggars chose not to use contraceptive and instead relied on God’s blessings when it came to family planning. The decision eventually earned them a reality show on TLC that ran until it was scrapped in 2009 over sexual misconduct allegations. Interestingly, the names of all the Duggar children (including the non-surviving ones) start with the letter, ‘J’. The show, which revolved around the daily life of the Duggars, debuted on September 2008, garnering around 2.3 million views per episode.
