‘Counting On’: Jinger Duggar Reveals She’s Already Chosen Her New Baby’s Name

Counting On stars Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo recently announced that they’re expecting their second child, another daughter, in November 2020. Duggar and Vuolo share one daughter, Felicity, and they have seemed to have kids at a slower pace than the rest of her family — though the two also revealed they went through a miscarriage last November.

Duggar recently told fans on social media that the couple has already chosen a name for their little girl.

Fans have suspected for a while that Duggar might be pregnant

As far back as last fall, fans were suspecting that Duggar and Vuolo would announce baby no. 2 sometime soon. When the two moved to Los Angeles last year, Duggar said in an episode of Counting On that they might have more kids while they’re living out there, though she assured producers she was not pregnant at the time.

Last fall, people once again thought Duggar might be pregnant when she started hiding her stomach in a few photos. But as time went on, no announcement was made. It turns out, though, that fans were right — but tragically, Duggar lost the baby.

Duggar and Vuolo recently posted about their heartbreaking miscarriage

When fans suspected Duggar could be hiding a baby bump last fall, they were onto something. After the couple announced their pregnancy, Duggar also posted about how she had miscarried last November. In an Instagram caption, she explained that she awoke to something unexpected only one day after she and Vuolo had told their families they were having another baby.

I’m excited! Yet, the overwhelming feelings of joy and anticipation that I’m feeling today are a sharp reminder of the overwhelming feelings of sadness and loss I felt last November. On a Monday evening, Jer and I were rejoicing with our families as we announced that I was pregnant. Yet, in God’s perfect timing, it was the next morning that I awoke knowing something wasn’t right. Within moments I knew that I’d lost the baby. Tears filled my eyes, sadness cloaked my soul. Having just lost my grandmother months before, the news of new life was like spring lilies blossoming after a dark, cold winter. And in a moment, that life was gone. I know many of you can relate. The minutes feel like hours, the hours like days, don’t they? I was helpless—nothing I could do would restore the lost life. Yet, I was never hopeless. In those moments, I did the only thing I could. I rehearsed the timeless truths upon which I’ve anchored my soul—the truth that God is sovereign and he is good. The truth that Job recited, thousands of years ago, in his agony: “The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” The pain doesn’t leave quickly. It’s not meant to. But in the midst of pain, the hope we hold is in God who works “all things together for good for those who love him and are called according to his purpose” (Rom 8:28). Dear friends, the reality is, at times we are helpless. But never, and I mean never, do we have to be hopeless.

Duggar revealed that she’s chosen the baby’s name — but it’s a secret

Now, six months later, Duggar and Vuolo are once again looking forward to welcoming a new baby. Duggar said that her “overwhelming feelings of joy” are a “sharp reminder” of what she went through last year, but the two seem thrilled to be pregnant once again. And they’ve already picked out their little girl’s name.

When one fan asked if Duggar had picked out a name, she actually responded. “Yes! But not publically announcing till she’s born,” Duggar replied. Fans asked Duggar to share the first letter and asked if the baby’s name will start with “F” like Felicity — but Duggar did not respond to additional questions.

Fans have recently become concerned about the couple’s marriage

Though Duggar and Vuolo are overjoyed about their announcement, fans and critics alike have expressed some concern about the couple’s marriage recently. In a now-deleted Q&A Instagram video, fans felt that Vuolo wasn’t letting Duggar speak her mind at all and suggested that he was a “dictator” in their marriage. Critics of the show also discussed their concern about the two on Reddit.

Duggar and Vuolo have continued posting loving photos with each other on social media, and some fans have called the images out for being “fake.” Ultimately, though, there is no proof that anything negative is going on in their relationship — and they’re clearly excited about starting a new chapter with two kids.
