Finally Some PDA

You HAVE To See Joy-Anna Duggar & Austin Forsyth’s ‘1st Kiss!’

The couple says they waited until their big day, despite shotgun wedding claims.


It’s the moment Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth have been waiting for – their first kiss! After months of courting, and chaperoned dates, the two finally got to engage in some real PDA during their wedding ceremony as the couple shared their first ever kiss.

“Are you ready?” Austin, 23, whispers to his bride as they stand at the altar in a clip from their Counting On wedding special.

“By the power vested in me in the state of Arkansas, I do pronounce that you are husband and wife,” their pastor announces. “In the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, amen.”

Austin and Joy-Anna, 19, then clear their throats, as they prepare for the moment they’ve been anxiously waiting for.

“Oh, am I missing something?” the pastor says. “Austin, you know — you may kiss your bride.”

Austin then leans in for the kiss, as he wraps one hand Joy-Anna’s neck, and the new Mrs. Forsyth smiles giddily.

The airing of Joy and Austin’s “first kiss” comes amidst claims that the two shared a bit more than a peck before their big day, as reports claimed the two had a shotgun wedding.

Rumors began to swirl about the newlyweds’ intimacy after Joy announced her pregnancy three months after she tied the knot.

Counting On airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
