As readers know, Joy-Anna DUggar was recently busted when photos showed her hiding a growing baby bump, four weeks before her wedding!

During an episode filmed one month before the ceremony, Joy-Anna, 19, was seen hiding her belly under various suspiciously loose outfits, leading viewers to believe she got pregnant months before saying "I do!"

The rumors of Joy-Anna and Austin's shotgun wedding began when the young couple announced they'd be pushing up their nuptials during an episode of the Duggars' family show.
