UPI News Service, 09/15/2020
Joy-Anna Duggar holds her baby girl for the first time in a new video.
On Monday, the 22-year-old television personality shared footage from the day she gave birth to Evelyn, her daughter with her husband, Austin Forsyth.
The video shows Duggar holding her daughter after delivery and Forsyth cutting the umbilical cord.
"Guys, we have a baby, and it's a girl! I can't believe it," Duggar said after birth. "I'm so, so thankful. I cannot believe I have a baby, and it's a girl."
Duggar gave birth to Evelyn after seven hours of active labor and over an hour of pushing. She said it was the "sweetest" moment to hold her daughter for the first time.
"I've just been waiting for this day. She's been such an easy baby," Duggar said. "She's been so nice."
Duggar and Forsyth welcomed Evelyn in August.
"To say my heart is full is an understatement. We have been dreaming of this day and are so happy to announce that our baby girl arrived August 21st," Duggar said on Instagram. "She has the best personality, is easy going and loves to be held!"
