The couple first announced they were expecting baby number three in October with a heartwarming photo of themselves holding a baby sonogram and joyful writing in the caption: "Baby #3 is on the way!"

They revealed in a YouTube video shortly after that they had been trying for a third child for quite some time following a miscarriage in July 2019 and the birth of their second child in August 2020.

"We're at a really good spot now," Joy-Anna said in the video. "We love our family, and we're ready to expand, so, we're really, really hoping that we get pregnant. It'd be crazy if it was twins. It would be fun."

After announcing their third pregnancy, they were excited to see it was a boy and a new brother for their first born.

"I am completely shocked," admitted Joy-Anna in a video where they learned the sex of their third baby. "I 100 percent thought that it was a girl, convinced myself it was a girl … and I was waiting for two of those balloons to be pink and they weren't. That's crazy!"

"I'm so, so grateful," Austin added. "I mean if it was a girl, I'd be just as happy, but I'm really glad Gideon's gonna have a little brother."
