“Meet our newest addition!” Joy-Anna, 22, captioned a photo on February 15 of Austin, 26, and Gideon, 23 months, with a black lab puppy. “Brielle (or ‘B’ as Gid calls her) has already added so much joy to our family.”

The puppy seemed to be Joy-Anna and Austin’s birthday gift to their son Gideon. The toddler turns two years old on February 23. “Your son has a great smile. Congratulations on your new addition,” one fan commented. “Awwwww. A child growing up with his dog. They will always have a playmate, and the bond they will develop will be unbreakable,” another person wrote.

Joy-Anna and Austin’s newest addition comes months after the couple suffered a miscarriage. “We are excited for the children that God’s going to give us and can’t wait,” the 22-year-old told Us Weekly in November 2019 when asked about their future plans for children. “I don’t know if four is the number. I mean, I would be fine with a few more if that’s what God wants us to have.”

On February 1, Joy-Anna shared a photo of a gift she received from a friend that depicted Jesus holding the couple’s unborn child. “I’ve always said, ‘My little girl is in the arms of Jesus,’ but this visual always makes me tear up! Such a good reminder. Thankful for this sweet gift!”

In September 2019, Joy-Anna got another gift from Austin’s sister in memory of the child they lost. The couple named their child Annabell Elise when they found out they were expecting a baby girl. Austin’s sister gave the Counting On star a monogrammed necklace with the name on it.

Joy-Anna revealed in July 2019, “We named her Annabell Elise. Annabell means ‘God has favored me,’ and Elise means ‘God satisfies.’ What a precious thing to know that when our daughter opened her eyes, the first thing she saw was the face of Jesus.”
