‘Counting On’: Jinger Duggar Announces She’s Pregnant With Baby No. 2, Confirming Fan Suspicions
“We are so excited to announce that we’re expecting a little girl this November!” the 26-year-old wrote. Jinger has been married to former pro soccer player Jeremy Vuolo since 2016. They have one daughter, Felicity, who is nearly 2.
Jinger Duggar says she had a ‘gut feeling’ she was having a girl
In her social media post, Jinger revealed that she wasn’t surprised to learn that she’d be having another girl.
“Jeremy and I both guessed it was a girl, just a gut feeling we had. And we couldn’t be happier,” she shared.
The reality TV personality — who is one of 19 kids — has eight sisters of her own, and she said she was excited that her daughter would also get to have that special relationship with a sibling.
“The bond that sisters share is unique, and one I cherish every day,” she wrote. “After all these years, they’re still my best friends! I’m glad God’s giving that gift for Felicity to enjoy. As for me and Jeremy, we’ll definitely have our hands full! But there’s nothing else we’d rather carry.”
Jeremy Vuolo says Felicity is already practicing to be a big sister
In a post on his Instagram, Jinger’s husband Jeremy said Felicity was more than ready to have a little sister join her “squad.”
“Recently, she’s been practicing her big-sistering on dolls, cradling and shushing them to sleep,” he shared. “Pretty soon, she’ll be holding a real baby. But she’s ready, and so are we.”
Fans suspected Jinger might be pregnant
The news that Jinger is expecting another child won’t come as a huge surprise to those who follow the Duggar family. They’ve been speculating for months that she might be pregnant.
Back in April, Jinger sported a loose-fitting jacket in an Instagram pic, leading some to wonder if she was trying to cover up a baby bump. A month earlier, she added the hashtag #healthyfitpregnancy to one of her posts. Though she quickly deleted the tag, there was speculation that it wasn’t a random mistake. People also commented on her “glow” in recent photos and wondered if she might be pregnant.
The confirmation that Jinger will welcome another baby later this year prompted a wave of congratulations on social media.
“I had a feeling you were pregnant since you had you back in every pic! Congratulations, what a blessing!!!” one person wrote.
“Wow! What a huge surprise! Congrats!” commented another.
Jinger had a miscarriage last year
While Jinger and Jeremy are thrilled to be expecting again, their path to becoming parents again wasn’t completely smooth. Jinger experienced a miscarriage late in 2019, Us Weekly reported.
Jinger’s sister Joy-Anna experienced a pregnancy loss at 20 weeks last summer. Her sister-in-law Lauren Swanson, who is married to Josiah Duggar, has also opened up about having a miscarriage.
