As soon as Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband Austin Forsyth revealed they were expecting, people began speculating whether the pair had sexual relations before getting married.

Joy and Austin never addressed the rumors, but the mom-to-be’s baby registry was recently made public and on the registry is Joy’s due date: February 22, 2018.

That’s just four days shy of Joy and Austin’s nine-month wedding anniversary.

Now, a mother’s due date is only an estimation of when the baby will arrive. It’s calculated by adding 280 days, or 40 weeks, to the first day of the mother’s last menstrual period.

According to, a mother’s menstrual period and ovulation are counted as the first two weeks of pregnancy. If the mom delivers on her due date, the baby is actually only 38 weeks old, not 40.

This means that if if Joy’s due date is accurate, she and Austin conceived their first child the week following their wedding.

Phew, looks like these two are in the clear.
