In a YouTube video last month, Joy-Anna, 25, said: “He’s measuring two weeks ahead in his stomach, in his stomach circumference.
“In his head, he’s a week ahead. everything else is pretty much just a week ahead. Still, it’s concerning.”
The TLC alum welcomed her third child last Wednesday with husband Austin Forsyth and has been sharing sweet photos with him ever since.
On Wednesday she posted a photo of herself kissing her son to celebrate him turning a week old.
Joy-Anna captioned it: “1 week old. It’s cliche, but true… ‘Time flies by too fast.’ Soaking up all of the newborn snuggles.”
While many fans praised the sweet snap, some shared their concern for her newborn.
One asked: “Is his belly ok? I know you said it was concerningly big in the ultrasound.”
Another wanted to know: “How much did he weigh?? So cute!!”
Joy-Anna revealed last week that her eight-pound son was born on May 17.
She posed for a photo in the hospital room with Gunner and her husband Austin.
The 19 Kids and Counting alum announced: “He’s here! Thank you all for praying… Mama and baby are recovering well.”
She also shared a snapshot of her third child as he slept in his dark blue striped onesie.
The TV star captioned the adorable post: “Soaking up every moment. He is the sweetest lil man.”
On Wednesday, Joy-Anna and Austin took the next step and introduced their son to their other two children – Gideon, five, and Evelyn, two.
The TLC alum shared a sweet photo of Evelyn cradling Gunner and revealed her nickname for her new baby brother is Gutta.
Joy-Anna wrote on her Instagram Story, “I wub Gutta,” and included the intended meaning of the words as being: “I love Gunner.”
The reality star also posted a snap of Gunner after breastfeeding and said he was milk drunk before marveling: “Look at that hair.”
Back in December 2022, the mom of three shared a clue about her baby’s name.
In a video titled Christmas Time Q&A, Joy shared some highly anticipated information with fans about her pregnancy and more.
One fan asked: “What are name ideas for this baby?”
The TV personality replied: “Just to give you guys a sneak peek, we are definitely using James either as a first name or the middle name. I’m thinking it will probably be used as a middle name.”
She added: “Austin’s papaw passed away a few years ago, and he told him before he passed that our next boy would have ‘James’ in it. He agreed that we would do that.”
Joy explained the tribute: “We’re going to have James mixed in there somewhere.
“His name was Edwin James Forsyth, and it was about using his name and honoring him in that way.”
