JOY-ANNA Duggar and husband Austin Forsyth posed for a rare photo together, cuddling close as the reality star gushed over her beau weeks after Josh’s guilty verdict.
The Counting On stars attended the trial together, along with several other members of the famous family.
In the photo, Austin and Joy-Anna smiled as they looked into the camera.
The 24-year-old TLC personality gushed over her hubby in the caption, sharing a song lyric that read: “You can say ‘I love you’ in just one glance, The way you smile.”
Fans flooded the comments with positivity, with friend and fellow TV personality Carlin Bates writing: “You look beautiful.”
A fan commented: “I am so thankful you have Austin to walk by your side, especially lately.”
Another echoed that sentiment, writing: “I’m so happy you have Austin.”
A third fan commented: “The love between you is palpable.”
The last few weeks have been a challenge for Joy-Anna and many members of the Duggar family as they rehashed the past and came to terms with the guilty verdict in Josh’s trial.
The Sun reported that Joy-Anna appeared ‘distressed’ during one day of the trial.
After the judge handed down the jury, she and sisters Jessa, Jill and Jinger hired a high-power lawyer to represent them in an ongoing lawsuit.
The siblings first sued In Touch Weekly and local police agencies in 2017, two years after the outlet reported that Josh was accused of molesting five minor girls in a leaked 2006 police report.
In the initial lawsuit, the sisters sued In Touch’s parent company, as well as several government agencies and law firms who assisted in the publication of the allegedly confidential police files.
Jessa and Jill came forward publicly to reveal that they were among the alleged victims.
They claimed the report caused them emotional distress.
New court documents, obtained by The Sun, show the sisters hired Hilary Potashner to join their legal team.
A source close to the family told The Sun that Josh’s conviction on child pornography charges could impact the outcome of the Duggar sisters’ case.
The insider said: “They’ve been allowed to proceed on their case against the police department and a couple of police officers.
“That was supposed to go to trial the same week as Josh’s trial, but it got reset.
“If there is a trial, the damages could be cut as a consequence of Josh’s conviction.”
Josh was found guilty on December 9 after a two-week trial.
Since the verdict came down, Joy-Anna has been keeping a somewhat low profile at home.
She recently gave fans a glimpse into her home, showing off her holiday decor.
Joy-Anna kicked off the clip with the camera pointed toward son Gideon, 3, sitting at a small table.
She then showed off her couch covered in a large blanket.
The camera then panned to Evelyn, 1, who was seen playing with a picture book while Austin sat in front of the family’s Christmas tree.
The tree was decorated with white lights and various ornaments.
Joy-Anna captioned the post: “A cozy, rainy, December morning.”
She got in the holiday spirit after a recent date night with Austin.
Joy-Anna documented a trip to a golfing range with friends for social media.
In the video, a friend took a shot on the range before the TV personality panned to another group chatting with Austin.
