Austin Forsyth: Who is Joy-Anna Duggar's New Boyfriend?

We are so excited for her and can't wait to find out more about Austin, her longtime friend who she has now entered into a courtship with. "I just asked her to enter a courtship with me", announced Austin. The news came about during TLC's special Counting On: Jinger's Wedding on November 15, a very big day for the Duggar clan already, as that was when Joy-Anna's sister, Jinger Duggar, got married!

"There was a whole group of us that came up", Joy-Anna says in the adorable clip.

The image seemed to be sending a message to the said publication that the report about the Duggar couple is misleading and speculations about their relationship should stop.

"We've known each other for a long time", Joy revealed in a TLC video announcing their courtship. The fans of "Counting On" have never got a chance to meet him and last night they got a small glimpse of Austin. Reports say that the family's compensation might be significantly less compared to before with "19 Kids and Counting", more so since the new show is unable to attain the same ratings and number of viewers. "We were just hanging out and it was really late at night, the stars were just gorgeous".

Another tidbit about Austin is that his parents Terry and Roxanne Forsyth, own Fort Rock Christian Family Camp and Retreat Center in Combs, Arkansas. In 2009, when he was 15, he starred alongside his parents and sister Meagan on Season 1 of CMT's "World's Strictest Parents". Just like the Duggars, Austin's family insists that the kids wear modest clothing and take a vow to save sex for marriage and their first kiss for their wedding day.

"Almost 15 years", Austin said. "At the beginning we were a little bit nervous, but it's really worked out and I think Jinger loves it".
