Counting On star Joy-Anna Duggar has shared a series of rare snaps to celebrate her daughter Evelyn's first birthday.

The mom-of-two created two video montages to celebrate the special day, and included pictures of Evelyn with her uncles and aunties, including Jed and new wife Katey, and Joy's younger brother Jason.

"One year.... I remember listening to this song on repeat when I was pregnant with you," Joy captioned the first video referencing JJ Heller's version of the Adele classic Make You Feel My Love.

Evelyn is Joy and husband Austin Forsyth's second child after son Gideon.

"To say my heart is full is an understatement," the star wrote on Instagram, announcing her arrival.

"She has the best personality, is easy going, and loves to be held!" the stay-at-home mom added.

"She has her nights and days mixed up, but honestly, I love it! Getting to spend that quiet, quality time with her through the night has been SO special! We are grateful for all the love and prayers that have come our way during this pregnancy."
