Joy-Anna Duggar has given birth to baby No. 3.

The “Counting On” alum’s third child with husband Austin Forsyth arrived on Friday, May 19.

The glowing mom shared the news via social media, writing, “He’s here!💙 Thank you all for praying… Mama and baby are recovering well.”

In the post, Duggar held her newborn son while her husband leaned over them with a smile.

Her second son’s birth comes just one day after the trailer for a documentary unmasking the Duggar family’s dark secrets and those of the religious teachings they follow was released.

In “Shiny Happy People: Duggar Family Secrets,” former members of the Institute in Basic Life Principles — including Joy-Anna’s older sister, Jill Duggar, and her cousin, Amy — are interviewed about the ultra-conservative ministry’s cult-like practices.

The now mom of three, 25, revealed her pregnancy news in October with a family photo shoot, which featured ultrasound snaps.

The former reality star and Forsyth were all smiles in the sweet shots with son Gideon, 5, and daughter Evelyn, 2.

“Baby #3 is on the way!” Duggar captioned the social media upload. “Baby, you are already so loved 💕🥹.”

The former TLC personality was eight weeks along at the time, writing that her latest pregnancy felt “faster” than the previous ones.

“Every time I look back one month, one week, or even one day I cannot believe how fast the time slips by,” she wrote alongside her baby bump debut.

Duggar married Forsyth in May 2017, six months after they began courting.

The couple’s eldest child arrived in February 2018. Between Gideon’s arrival and Evelyn’s August 2020 birth, the “19 Kids and Counting” alum suffered a pregnancy loss at 20 weeks.

“It still hurts and we have cried countless tears,” the YouTube vlogger, who named her stillborn child Annabell, told her Instagram followers in July 2019.

“But we know that we can trust the Lord,” she continued. “What a precious thing to know that when our daughter opened her eyes, the first thing she saw was the face of Jesus.”

Duggar wasn’t the only one of her family members to conceive another baby in 2022.

Two months before Joy-Anna’s Instagram announcement, Jeremiah Duggar and his wife, Hannah Duggar, revealed that they were starting a family.
