Joy-Anna Duggar hasn’t even had time to bask in her pregnancy bliss as a family insider recently revealed to that tensions are high in the Duggar family because they can’t stand her husband (and future baby daddy) Austin Forsyth. If that wasn’t bad enough, the couple is also enduring rumors about their alleged shotgun wedding.
“There has been a lot of talk about the character of her new husband Austin,” a source told Radar. “He was more of a rebel child.” Even Anna Duggar, who is married to disgraced Josh Duggar, was especially “disappointed in Austin’s character.”
“He was immature, arrogant and lacked experience,” added the insider.
Said accusations against the newlywed come after rumors that Austin and Joy, who recently announced that they’re expecting their first child together, had a shotgun wedding to hide that they broke a major courtship rule – having sex before marriage.
“The pregnancy was very fast,” the source admitted, as the two actually moved up their wedding date from its originally scheduled date of October 28 to May 26. “I don’t see it being far fetched when you have such strict rules before marriage…there is always a chance.”
Not only is there a chance, but Dr. Stuart Fischer, who has not treated Joy-Anna, told Radar that the Counting On star looks “four to five months pregnant” based on the bump photos she’s shared on social media.
Breaking courtship rules (no kissing, no front facing hugs, no unsupervised visits, and basically no PDA) is nothing new for Joy and Austin. They admitted to holding hands weeks before they were due to tie the knot.
“We’re humans and sometimes we don’t always abide perfectly by our rules,” Austin explained during the recent Counting On after show special. “We try. That was a real hard try.”
