Joy-Anna Duggar shared a few photos from a visit with Carlin Bates last week.
She looked amazing, and some Counting On viewers couldn’t believe how much she resembled Jessa Duggar.

If you were just scrolling Instagram and didn’t know any better, the new photos shared by Joy-Anna Duggar could easily have been mistaken for Jessa Duggar.
From the long hair to the cardigan and jean skirt, the sisters look more similar now than ever before.
Several of the Duggar sisters have resemblances, but Joy-Anna Duggar and Jessa Duggar have the most similar looks right now. As they have grown, the women in the Duggar family seem to age effortlessly.
Joy-Anna was a tomboy growing up and has blossomed into a very pretty young woman. Jessa has always been praised for her good looks, even being dubbed the “prettiest” sister several years ago.
