Delicious. That’s all we can say about this new clip from Counting On featuring Joy-Anna Duggar and her future husband Austin Forsyth.
Only literally, though.
In this evening’s installment of TLC’s hit series, the reality star, 19, and her then-fiance, 23, sat down for a pre-wedding rite of passage:
Wedding cake tasting.
That’s right, a major segment of tonight’s show is devoted to Austin and Joy picking out the cake they wanted for their nuptials.
Joy-Anna and Austin got hitched in Rogers, Arkansas, on May 26, just two months after getting engaged, and right after she got pregnant.
Just kidding. (Maybe.)
Anyway, in the sneak peek below, young Duggar talks with the baker and expresses her desire for a three or four-tiered cake.
One that is off-white and “really simple,” she says, though “I’m open to a lot of ideas. I don’t know if I’m going to go more simple or more fancy.”
“I’m going to just wait and see,” she added, while Forsyth – expressionless as drywall on his best day – can barely contain his antipathy.
You can hear him yawning all the way from the Natural State … and understand why execs may actually bring back Josh and Anna.
Austin said he was really surprised at how many little details go into every decision for the big day … and not an excited kind of surprised.
“Being engaged and planning our wedding, there are a lot of decisions that have to be made that I never thought of,” he said, adding:
“It was a little more than I ever thought about.”
In that sense, reality stars really are just like us. Any guy who’s ever gotten married has likely been in his shoes in this kind of setting.
Of course, most guys who have gotten married have hugged a woman chest to chest first, but that’s neither here nor there.
Following the big day, which resulted in Joy-Anna Duggar’s baby bump just three months later, they enjoyed a honeymoon in Switzerland.
“Saying our vows and saying ‘I do’ and committing our lives to each other is so incredible,” the teen bride gushed at the time.
“I am so blessed to be married to him.”
Forsyth added, “I’m just looking forward to getting to share my life, its good time and its challenges, with my best friend.”
As for their impending baby, which was announced August 30, she said, “Every child is such a precious gift from God.”
“I’m most looking forward to watching Austin as a dad and raising children together with him,” Joy-Anna said of her man.
