Could baby No. 2 be on the way? Counting On star Jinger Duggar hasn’t announced a pregnancy, but fans are convinced the 26-year-old is expecting again. The baby rumors started several months ago, but new photos from her surprise birthday party have people more convinced than ever that she and husband Jeremy Vuolo are expanding their family.
Jeremy Vuolo threw Jinger Duggar a surprise birthday party
Jinger turned 26 on Dec. 26 and her husband Jeremy decided to throw her a surprise birthday party to celebrate. Both Jeremy and Jinger waited a month to share pictures from the event, which he pulled off with the help of some of the couple’s friends.
“I planned, with the help of amazing friends, a surprise birthday party for Jinger last month! I wanted her to know how deeply she’s loved and what an incredible woman she is. It was a special night of celebrating Jinger,” Jeremy wrote on Instagram.
“Exactly one month ago, Jeremy threw me a surprise birthday party, surrounded by some of my closest friends,” Jinger shared. “It completely wowed me, brought me to tears, and was humbling to stop and see just how many precious individuals the Lord has placed in my life.”
Many commenters praised Jeremy, 32, for his thoughtful gesture. But what got some people talking wasn’t Jeremy’s surprise or the pretty cake, but Jinger’s outfit.
Fans think it’s obvious Jinger is pregnant
Jinger gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Felicity, in 2018. Since then, many Counting On fans have wondered if she and Jeremy will give their daughter a sibling. Recently, some have pointed to photos on Instagram where Jinger appears to be concealing her belly. That has them convinced she’s hiding a baby bump.
The photos from Jinger’s birthday party aren’t likely to put the baby rumors to rest. In the images, Jinger is wearing a loose-fitting, empire-waist dress. That got tongues wagging.
“I really think she looks pregnant,” wrote one person on Jinger’s post.
Some took the photos as a low-key pregnancy announcement. “Oh goodness. You’re expecting? I love your dress!!” commented someone else.
Those following Jeremy has similar comments. “It looks like you two are expecting #2!” one wrote. But others were quick to point out that you shouldn’t assume a woman is pregnant just because she wore a certain type of clothing.
“[M]aybe she ate a burrito?! 🤪 don’t you know it’s rude to say anything until a women tells your something!” someone wrote in response to a pregnancy speculation comment.
Jeremy weighed in on earlier pregnancy rumors
If Jinger and Jeremy are expecting another child, they’ve yet to make an official announcement. In December, Jeremy seemed to shoot down the idea that Jinger was pregnant. After he shared some Christmas wishes with his fans on Instagram, one person asked “Are you pregnant?”
Jeremy replied with a now-deleted comment, writing “I’m not, but now I know I need to lay off the Christmas cookies.” But that reply isn’t exactly a firm denial. It could be that Jeremy was dodging the question with his joke about over-indulging in sweets. Fans will just have to wait and see if Jinger becomes the first Duggar to announce a pregnancy in 2020.
