‘Counting On’ Fans Warn Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo That California Isn’t a Safe Place to Live
The last season of Counting On may be over, but fans are still keeping up with their favorite Duggars via social media — and Jinger Duggar proves her likability amongst fans time and time again. From her loving relationship to her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, to the way she’s raising her daughter, Felicity, those who keep up with the family have been rooting for this Duggar to leave Arkansas and get out into the world. Now, Duggar and Vuolo have finally made their move away from the others as they set their sights on Los Angeles.
Many couldn’t be happier for the young family, but it seems others are warning Duggar and Vuolo to be careful in their new home. Here’s why some are telling the couple that California isn’t a safe place.
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo officially moved to Los Angeles
While many of the Duggar women are currently pregnant and expanding their families in Arkansas, the Vuolos decided to take a different route. Duggar and Vuolo announced at the end of March that they’d be making a big move out west. “Through much prayer and counsel, the next step for our family is to relocate to Los Angeles to attend Grace Community Church as Jeremy pursues graduate studies at The Master’s Seminary,” the couple wrote on their website. And according to Vuolo’s Instagram, it seems he and Duggar are already making Los Angeles their home.
Vuolo posted a photo of their daughter, Felicity, and the Counting On camera crew with the caption, “We’ve begun our adventure west, to our new home in Los Angeles! Along for the ride is the ‘Counting On’ film crew (pictured), so make sure you tune in to @tlc this fall to join the journey!” Fans were ultra-excited to hear that viewers will be getting an inside look into their move as well, as it seemed uncertain whether the family would be staying on the show after leaving Texas.
Some fans are nervous for the family’s safety in their new home
While plenty of Vuolo and Duggar’s fans are very happy for the young couple, others took to Vuolo’s Instagram to warn him of the dangers of Los Angeles. “Why LA! Most importantly, why California! Born and raised in California and my family and I couldn’t get out fast enough! No place to raise a family! Hopefully it’s not a permanent move!” a fan commented. Many others seemed to agree. “I was thinking the same thing. Why LA Cal? [sic],” another added. And yet another one of Vuolo’s followers commented, “There’s tons of homeless people and panhandlers. It is NOT a safe place for family’s unless you can live in a gated community of million dollar homes.”
Despite the critique, others expressed their support for Vuolo and Duggar’s move and think California is an amazing location for them to raise their daughter. “God called them to LA then that’s where they are supposed to be. Remember, Christ hung out with the poor, the sick, and the people who were considered the dredges of society. J & J are right where they are supposed to be,” a supporter wrote.
Jinger Duggar has always hoped to live in a big city
Fans may be concerned for Vuolo and Duggar’s new home, but there’s no doubt this is truly what Duggar’s always wanted. Radar Online reminds us the young woman used to talk about wanting to move to New York City — though the idea was always shut down by her mother, Michelle Duggar. The Duggar matriarch instead insisted that her daughter just wanted a shorter drive to Walmart and didn’t actually want to live the big city life.
Now that Jinger Duggar is older and married, however, it seems the big city lifestyle never lost its appeal, and she’s truly proving she’s unafraid to go out on a limb and try something new. Will any of the other Duggars follow in her path? We don’t expect so — but we’ll have to wait and find out.
