Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo Barely Wrote About Their Daughter for Her Birthday
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are two of the most popular Duggars on the internet. Jinger is currently pregnant with the couple’s second child, and fans are heavily invested in their 2-year-old daughter, Felicity.
While Jinger and Jeremy frequently post updates on Felicity, like what she’s wearing, what she’s interested in, and how they’re choosing to parent her, it seems they barely posted anything on social media about the little girl’s birthday.
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo often post about their daughter, Felicity
Felicity is the apple of Jinger and Jeremy’s eye. While Jinger grew up with Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s ultra-strict rules to follow, she seems to be laxer with how she’s choosing to parent her kids. Jinger and Jeremy allow Felicity to consume some modern media, listen to music, and dance. And they’ve even indicated that Felicity will be able to be whatever she wants when she grows up without the expectation that she should aim to marry and serve her future husband.
It seems Jinger compares Felicity to other little girls, though. “I definitely compare Felicity to other kids her age,” the mom explained to the Counting On cameras.
“I think most parents probably do that,” she added. “You see another kid over there who’s crawling and maybe your baby isn’t crawling yet, or they’re not rolling over, and you can get kind of scared. But also, at the same time, you can’t compare too much because every kid is different.”
Jinger and Jeremy didn’t make a big fuss on social media about Felicity’s birthday
While Jinger and Jeremy are constantly giving followers updates on how Felicity is doing, they didn’t post too much for the little girl’s birthday.
“Happy birthday to this little darling girl,” Jinger captioned a post of Felicity on July 19. And prior to this post, she added another Instagram post of Felicity reminding her followers the little girl will be turning 2. “In just a few days, Felicity will be turning 2 years old,” Jinger wrote. “I cannot believe how quickly she has grown…and she is already wearing my shoes.”
As for Jeremy, he posted a brief birthday message for Felicity as well. “This little nugget is two years old. She’s the best. Happy birthday, Lissy!” he wrote.
The Duggar family Instagram, which is seemingly run by Jim Bob and Michelle, wrote more for Felicity’s birthday than Jinger and Jeremy combined.
“Happy 2nd birthday to this little cutie!!” Jim Bob and Michelle wrote. “Felicity’s name means ‘Happiness’ and she sure does live up to it! We really wish we could be with you today sweet girl, but FaceTime calls will have to do for now! Happy birthday to you!!”
Duggar family critics are surprised
Considering how much Jinger and Jeremy post about their lives, Duggar family critics are surprised by the brief birthday messages they each wrote for Felicity.
“This is the most generic, impersonal post I may have ever seen,” a Reddit user noted regarding Jeremy’s post. “It’s basically the equivalent of writing ‘best wishes’ in someone’s yearbook. Especially from someone who tries to wax poetic about the most inane stuff.”
“Jinger’s post was similarly generic. Interesting,” another added. “At times it seems like they’re not as emotionally attached to her as you’d expect them to be but I hope for Felicity’s sake that that’s not true.”
“I find the lack of the word ‘love’ in both of their posts odd as well,” yet another commented. “[Jinger] proclaims her love for coffee pretty much on a daily basis, but can’t be bothered to drop the L bomb on her daughter’s birthday?”
We’re not sure what Jinger and Jeremy were aiming for with these posts, but it’s clear their critics aren’t impressed. Perhaps they’ll try again with something else next time.
