Counting On Recap: Jinger Duggar Learns She’s Having a Girl!

Counting On suffers from the same problem as so many reality shows nowadays, in that its stars are so famous and so popular on social media that it's very easy to stay up to speed with what's going on in their lives.

Some have argued that these circumstances render reality TV obsolete, but Counting On remains as popular as ever, and last night's episode provided some potent reminders of why that is.

Jinger-ing All the Way

The installment served up major developments on different fronts, as the two most rebellious Duggar siblings each prepared for the next stage in their life.

Back in July, Jinger Duggar welcomed her first child, a girl named Felicity.

But at the time that Monday's episode was filmed, the young couple was still clueless as to the baby's sex.

"There was a lot of anticipation waiting to find out the gender," Jinger told the cameras of prior to her doctor's appointment.

Jinger Duggar and Daughter

"Who's the baby going to look like? We were both so thrilled."

Jeremy -- clearly overwhelmed by seeing an image of his daughter for -- struggled to put the profound moment into words.

"That's incredible," he said at one point.

"This was my first time ever being in an ultrasound, and the fact it's my child was astonishing," Vuolo later added.

Jinger Duggar: Ready to Pop!

"I was almost at a loss for words."

Despite some initial misgivings, Jeremy and Jinger opted to find out the baby's gender as early as possible, and lucky for us, the emotional moment was caught on camera.

"We opted not to be surprised so maybe we could have more time to reflect on the name, and maybe down the road we may choose to be surprised," Vuolo said.

"When the technician told us what we were having, we were both overjoyed," Jinger told the cameras.

Felicity at a Month

"We just could not believe it."

Just a few months later Felicity Nicole Vuolo entered the world at 8lbs. and 3oz. 

And so far, fans have continued to share in every moment of her young life.

Of course, Jinger and Jeremy weren't the only ones gearing up for a life-changing moment on last night's show.

Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson Wedding Pic

Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson got married in June, and on Monday's Counting On, fans got a peek at the preparations as Lauren attempted to find the perfect dress for the occasion.

The Duggars and their fundamentalist community are typically very big on gender roles, but Lauren broke with tradition by bringing her dad along on her dress-shopping excursion.

“Before Josiah came into the picture, my dad was my very best friend," Lauren told the cameras.

"He was someone I always would talk to about anything if anything was wrong, and I really value my dad's opinion."

Swanson and Josiah Duggar

Of course, there are downsides to shopping with the guy who's footing the bill:

"I really wanted him to be part of it. My dad will probably be more concerned about the price, just knowing my dad," Lauren said.

"He's very frugal. I don’t necessarily like to pick the expensive things. I don’t tend, to but that happens.�

Clearly, Lauren's not as conservative as the Duggars -- so it's a good thing that she found happiness with the most non-traditional of the Counting On clan.

Jeremy Vuolo, Jinger Duggar Gush Over Baby Felicity: See Her at Two Months!

Just days before Felicity Vuolo's two month "birthday," Jeremy and Jinger are taking to social media and gushing over their baby.

Fans had expressed concerns about the precious infant's health in recent photos.

But as fans can see, little Felicity is all smiles.

Jinger, Jeremy and Felicity Vuolo

In the absolutely precious photo that you're about to see, a grinning Jeremy Vuolo gazes warmly into the eyes of his infant daughter.

Baby Felicity lays on her back and smiles up at him.

According to the captions, this is a very common occurrence these days.

Jeremy writes: "She’s all smiles these days."

This is a truly touching and beautiful family photo. Take a look:

Jeremy Vuolo and Baby Felicity Vuolo

Felicity was born in July, as Jeremy and Jinger shared on the family website.

"God is so kind!" the post gushed. "Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 am."

And then they laid out her stats: "Felicity weighs 8lbs. and 3oz. and is 19.5 inches long."

"Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well," they shared.

The post concluded: "We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents"

Felicity Vuolo Birthday

Felicity will be two months old on September 19! Babies grow up so quickly, and the couple's fans and followers are happy to see pictures.

Of course, a recent photo of Felicity Vuolo raised concern among fans.

They looked at the adorable baby girla nd perceived that she looked "blue," which could indicate a problem with circulation or oxygenation.

A number of fans shared these genuine worries in the captions, not to be hateful, but simply out of alarm.

Fortunately, it looks like Felicity remains happy and healthy. Perhaps what followers perceived was merely a trick of the lighting?

Felicity at a Month

After Jeremy and Jinger shared the name of their young daughter, some were puzzled over its meaning.

(And no, it is not a reference to a Keri Russell character)

While you might not expect hardcore Christians like these two to name their daughter after a Roman deity (Felicitas), they explained that they named her after "a young Christian girl who lived long ago."

That is a clear reference to Saint Felicitas, a young Christian woman who was martyred alongside Saint Perpetua in the Third Century in Carthage.

The Vuolos are not Catholic, but clearly they felt a connection to Felicitas' religious convictions.

Jinger's Daughter

More to the point, however, Jinger and Jeremy explained that the name simply "felt right."

It is wonderful that Felicity smiles so much. Babies are not generally capable of giving a full smile when first born -- it is a skill that they develop.

But smiling is a great indicator that Felicity is successfully bonding with Jeremy and with Jinger, expressing a rush of excitement when she sees her parents.

Babies can be grumpy and they can cry, which is also normal and healthy, but it's always good to see a baby smile.

Let's hope that she continues to smile -- if Jinger and Jeremy prove to be better parents than anyone in Jinger's terrifying family.

Jinger Duggar Shares New Baby Pic, Raises Concern Among Fans

Jinger Duggar g had a reason to celebrate late last week.

But the way in which this reality star did show has given followers a reason to be concerned.

Allow us to explain...

Jinger and Jeremy and Daughter

On August 19, Jinger and husband Jeremy Vuolo gave fans a glimpse at their precious first daughter, Felicity Nicole, as a way to pay tribute to her first-ever birthday.

Felicity is only a month old, but still... that counts as a birthday.

Just ask any first-time parent.

To mark the occasion, Jinger posted a few pictures of her adorable baby on Instagram.

"Felicity is one month old today!" Jinger wrote as a simple caption to the following image:

Felicity Vuolo Birthday

Then, on Sunday, Jinger followed up this snapshot with two more.

The first leads this article up top and features the bundle of joy outside with her proud parents.

The second inlcuded with it a caption that reads "Those eyes!" because, well... just look at those eyes on young Felicity!

All these photos represent indisputable evidence that Felicity is pretty darn happy, healthy and cute, right?

Felicity at a Month

Actually, that may be wrong, some Internet users are now saying.

Indeed, while some folks out there have labeled the official one-month picture as one of the most endearing in social media history, something about Felicity's face and skin tone have others concerned.

"Wow, she looks blue. Is she okay? Seriously. I am not trying to be critical or mean,” one fan wrote as a comment, while another remark echoed this sentiment:

“I was really alarmed when I saw this picture. She is purple, and that’s not normal. You are right to comment as you did. I hope they take her in and get her checked out."

We don't think these people are trying to be trolls.

They very likely have a legitimate worry (in their mind) over Felicity.

Jinger, Jeremy and Felicity Vuolo

But still.

Come on now, folks!

There's only so much you can tell by a picture and you should maybe think twice (heck, maybe even three times) before setting up such alarms online.

As another follower put it well, chill out with the "scary, negative speculation," okay?!?

The Vuolos, of course, live in Laredo, Texas, making Jinger the first Duggar sibling to relocate outside of Tontitown, Arkansas permanently.

Jinger Duggar Post-Baby Body Photo

Upon becoming a father for the first time, Jeremy gushed back in mid-July:

“God is so kind. Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m.

"Felicity weighs 8 lbs and 3 oz, and is 19.5 inches long. Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well.

"We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”

As for why they chose Felicity as their chilld's name? We'll go ahead and let Jinger explain!

Jinger Duggar Celebrates Daughter’s 1-Month Birthday With World’s Cutest Pic

It's hard to believe it's been a full month since Jinger Duggar welcomed her first child, but lo and behold, little Felicity has been on this planet for 31 whole days.

And you know Jinger had to hit fans with an adorable b-day pic to give them a powerful case of cuteness overload.

Felicity Vuolo Birthday

That's Felicity at one month old.

As you can see, she's an almost impossibly adorable tyke, and fans have reacted to Jinger's birthday post with a torrent of giddy glee.

"Oh, my word! She is just precious!!! Perfect combination of mommy and daddy :) congrats y’all! God bless!" wrote one of Jinger's followers.

"She is absolutely beautiful. I believe I cried when she was born... I was so excited for you and @jeremy_vuolo ... enjoy each and every day, they grow up in the blink of an eye," remarked another.

Jinger's Daughter

"Beautiful princess...Daddy's eyes...the world's heart!" commented a third.

Like we said, the Duggar public is absolutely head-over-heels for young Felicity.

And they're pretty fond of her parents, too.

Last week, Jinger posted pics of her post-baby body, and fans expressed utter shock with impressive physical fitness.

Jinger Duggar Post-Baby Body Photo

As for Jeremy, he's the rare Duggar husband that actually seems more concerned with loving and supporting his wife and daughter than with securing a chunk of Jim Bob's fortune.

In other words, Jeremy is -- as many fans have pointed out during the past month -- the very definition of #DadGoals.

For many younger or less-conservative Duggar fans, Jingger and Jeremy are a breath of fresh air.

Yes, they're extremely old-fashioned by most standards (Jeremy still decides what sort of clothing Jinger is allowed to wear, for crying out loud.), but in Duggar World, they're a pair of rule-breaking progressives.

Jinger, Jeremy and Felicity Vuolo

Obviously, there's the fact that Jinger wears pants in defiance of her family's dress code, but that's not her only act of rebellion.

Even the fact that Jinger and Jeremy waited a year after their wedding before trying to have a baby is an indication that the couple has no intention of being reined in by Jim Bob's strict rules of conduct.

Perhaps that's why fans are so excited about Felicity.

She's the first of the new-generation Duggars whose parents could actually be described as cool.

Jinger Duggar Earns Praise, Disbelief with Post-Baby Body Photo!

It's only been a month since Jinger Duggar gave birth to her first child with husband Jeremy Vuolo.

Jeremy shared a new photo of his wife, just weeks after she gave birth.

And fans are raving about Jinger's incredible post-baby body! Take a look:

Jinger, Jeremy and Felicity Vuolo

Jeremy and Jinger have explained the reason they named their baby Felicity.

And no, it's not because they're both big Keri Russell fans (though more than one of us here at THG has made that joke).

They just like the name, like its meaning, and felt that it fit their baby girl. It's a good name.

But while so much focus has been directed at the couple's first child, Jeremy's new photo features only Jinger.

He captioned the pic "Summer Saturdays," but Jinger's post-baby body is stealing everyone's breath away.

Jinger Duggar Post-Baby Body Photo

Jinger looks great! And the compliments came pouring in.

"Mind blown!!!" writes one fan. "Wow!!! She looks fabulous!! So gorgeous!"

"Jeremy, just fyi…a lot of women don’t bounce back like that!!" adds another fan who wanted to let Jeremy know just how lucky he is. "She’s stunning!!!"

"Wow, what baby?!?!" another fan asks. "Are you sure she had a baby? She looks amazing!"

(What Baby is a fan nickname for Avengers: Age of Ultron, but in this case, fans are just expressing amazement at Jinger's body)

Felicity Vuolo

Though Jeremy and Jinger have been parent-shamed for letting their newborn stare at computer screens, these comments were full of praise.

"Congratulations on baby Felicity," gushes a fan. "She is the most beautiful baby ever and I look forward to seeing more pictures ever I get so excited when I see a picture."

Well, then Instagram is the right place for them to be.

"She looks great since the baby," another fan writes simply. "Congratulations"

"I think the backlash that comes from your posts is so ridiculous," another fan laments. "My husband tells me all the time I get prettier as I get older. Best compliment ever."

Jinger Duggar Baby Pic

"Jinger looks amazing!" yet another fan proclaims. "Both of your girls are BEAUTIFUL!"

That said, not everyone's comments were filled with priase.

"It’s like 200 degrees where you live," one person commented. "I can’t imagine long sleeves."

Some folks can barely stand wearing long sleeves in the winter.

"I still think it's an old picture," suggested someone else, who doubts that this is Jinger's real post-baby body.

Jinger-ing All the Way

It is always possible that post-baby body photos date back to before a pregnancy, but ... when it comes to Jinger and Jeremy, it's hard to see their motive.

That is something that you'd only expect to see from someone who has built their brand upon their body, in terms of physical fitness or sex appeal or both.

That is a far cry from Jinger, whose brand largely consists of her parents' fundamentalist beliefs that treat her as property whose purpose is to produce more children with the same beliefs.

We are very much inclined to believe that this is a genuine, recent photo of Jinger and that fans are seeing her post-baby body in this photo.

She looks great. She's also young, which can really help a person recover from pregnancy a little faster than they might a few years later.

Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo: Parent-Shamed Already!

The internet sure is a fascinating place, right?

There are so many people there always, and because of the anonymity, so many of those people feel like they're free to say any old thing that crosses their minds.

Jinger Duggar Baby Pic

Sometimes that makes for some fun, but most of the time it's just obnoxious.

And when you look at the rampant shaming that goes on in the comment section of famous people's Instagram posts, you realize just how obnoxious it can get.

For example, you know how Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo just had their first child?

On July 19th, Jinger gave birth to a little baby girl they named Felicity, and since then, they've been sharing plenty of pictures of her.

But a couple of days ago, Jeremy shared this one:

Jeremy Vuolo with Felicity

It did not go so well.

"Look who joined me for OT Studies w/ Dr. Essex," he captioned the photo -- it looks like they're getting Felicity started early on learning about the bible!

As you can see, she looks super, super interested in it, too.

But it's not because she a hardcore Christian already, it's because she's a little bitty baby and for little bitty babies, any and all screens are totally fascinating.

It's just that they're not typically considered healthy for such small children.

Felicity Vuolo

Most doctors will suggest limiting screen time for babies, or banning it altogether for newborns like Felicity.

And Jeremy's followers were quick to let him know that what is happening in this photo is not OK.

"Young eyes shouldn't be spending so much time looking at screens," one person pointed out.

Another elaborated that "Her eyes are still too delicate for screens like that," and suggested that "maybe you can just read or talk to her and tell her what you've learnt."

"Jer the light of the computer is not healthy for the eyes of your baby!"

Jinger Duggar and Daughter

Interestingly enough, it seems like Jeremy deleted other critical comments -- there were even some about the way he's holding his daughter that are no longer there.

Of course, most of the comments were full of praise, with many even suggesting that Felicity is actually taking in what she's watching on Jeremy's computer.

Felicity is three weeks old, just in case you'd forgotten.

Are these people right, should he be more careful with screen time?

Jinger, Jeremy and Felicity Vuolo

Yeah, probably. Many doctors would say so.

But let's be real, is a comment on an Instagram post really going to do any good?

Is Jeremy going to read those comments and change anything because of them?

We all know he's not.

So while it may be fun to call out reality stars for whatever nonsense they decide to post on social media, is it really doing anything? Is there any point?

No. No, there is not.

Jeremy Vuolo: Throwing Shade at Derick Dillard on Twitter?!

Just last month, Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo welcomed their first child.

In the weeks since, the happy couple has been doting on their daughter and gushing about little Felicity every chance they get.

Jinger, Jeremy and Felicity Vuolo

But that doesn't mean they're not making time for the truly important things, like roasting Derick Dillard's dumb ass on social media.

A little backstory is required in order to fully understand why Jeremy's seemingly innocent tweet from Monday night is being widely interpreted as anti-Dillard shade.

As you probably know, Derick was fired from Counting On after unapologetically sharing his bigoted views with the world on Twitter.

And it's not just his former bosses who have taken issue with D-Dill's big mouth.

Derick Dillard on Social Media

There have been rumors that several members of the extended Duggar clan want nothing to do with Derick.

And reports of a feud between Vuolo and Dillard have been especially common in recent weeks.

"Jinger and I are so grateful to TLC for giving us the opportunity to share our lives with all of you!" Jeremy wrote on Twitter before Monday's Counting On season premiere.

"Tune in this Monday night — July 30th, 9/8C — for the new season of #CountingOn.”

Jinger Duggar Baby Pic

Sounds innocent enough, but it's not hard to see why many Duggar-watchers took the remark as an extremely subtle jab at Derick.

"Some Dillard shade,” wrote one fan.

Another echoed the sentiment with a reluctant shoutout to Jeremy:

"He's good at throwing shade in a fundie acceptable way," the viewer commented.

"I don’t like him, but damn if it ain’t entertaining.”

Jill M. Duggar and Derick Dillard

Dillard has made his distaste for his former home network abundantly clear in the months since he was unceremoniously kicked to the curb.

He was fired for attacking fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings, and he's since accused network execs of espousing values that run counter to everything the Duggars stand for.

In that context, it's a bit easier to see how Jeremy's public praise for the same folks who gave Derick the ax could as smack talk.

Of course, the big question now is -- will Derick respond? 

We sure hope so.

We could really go for a heated Duggar feud.

Jinger Duggar Posts Pic of Sleeping Daughter; Fans Lose Their Minds Due to Cuteness Overload

It's only been two weeks since Jinger Duggar welcomed her first child, but in following with the tradition established by her older siblings, she's been dutifully sharing her joy with millions of fans on social media.

Photos of little Felicity have been all over Jessa's Instagram page, and now, the newest addition to the Duggar clan has officially made her print media debut:

Jinger, Jeremy and Felicity Vuolo

That's Jinger, Jeremy and Felicity posing for People magazine.

Like we said, it's not the first time the Duggar faithful have laid eyes on Jinger's baby girl, but the public reaction is one of pure elation every time.

Of course, no one is more excited than Jinger and Jeremy who have been gushing about Felicity every chance they get.

“We are so thankful to have our sweet girl home with us! She is the biggest blessing and we are elated to be her parents!” the couple wrote in a recent blog post.

“It’s incredible being first-time parents," they added.

Jinger Duggar Baby Pic

"It’s something that you think about and dream about, but when it’s actually here, I think the reality hits you and it’s just the sweetest thing in the whole world.”

In a video introducing Felicity to the world -- another Duggar tradition -- Jinger and Jeremy showered the little girl with more love and affection:

“I think the most exciting thing about having a little girl is seeing this little piece of Jinger and me together,” said Jeremy.

As for the name -- which is remarkably traditional by Duggar standards (this is the family that gave us baby Spurgeon, after all) -- Jinger and Jeremy explained the situation thusly:

Jinger Duggar and Daughter

"Nicole, because that's Jinger's middle name, and a way to honor her," Vuolo explained.

"Felicity really describes supreme joy -- the joy we have in this little one and the joy that we pray she would have throughout life."

Well, nothing can quite live up to Spurgeon, but we suppose it will do

We kid, of course.

Felicity is a beautiful name for a beautiful little girl.

Our sincere congrats go out to Jinger, Jeremy, and the whole Duggar clan.

Jeremy Vuolo: Man, Newborns Really Don’t Sleep, Huh?

Jeremy Vuolo has made a classic first-time father mistake.

Ahead of the birth of his very recent baby, the reality star forgot to catch up on his sleep.


Jinger Vuolo

The long-time TLC personality welcomed a daughter into the world alongside wife Jinger Duggar last week, as the couple made the very exciting announcement that Felicity Nicole Vuolo has arrived.

“God is so kind," Jeremy wrote online, adding of his baby's name and her measurements:

"Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m. Felicity weighs 8 lbs and 3 oz, and is 19.5 inches long."

As you can tell by the photo Jeremy and Jinger provided with this statement, their daughter is absolutely precious and perfect as well.

Wouldn't you agree?

Jinger Duggar Baby Pic

Well, perhaps she isn't perfect.

Vuolo has posted his first pair of messages since becoming a parent and both point to the same parental hiccup that afflicts many young men and women:

A lack of sleep!

That darn newborn just keeps waking up hungry and said!

"To sleep, my dear friend and faithful companion. So long, it was a good run. Fondly, Jeremy," Vuolo wrote as a pretty humorous meme on Monday evening.

Jeremy Vuolo meme

He then gave a shout-out to his new best friend:

"Dear coffee, it's just you and me now. Don't let me down. Gratefully, Jeremy."

Jeremy Vuolo coffee

Fans, of course, were quick to laugh along with Jeremy and also to assure him of two things:

  1. Sleep will come eventually.
  2. Being a father is still worthwhile, even if it means you can barely see straight half of every day.

In his baby announcement, Vuolo confirmed that "mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well," adding:

"We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”

The stars went public with Jinger's pregnancy back in January, after 14 months after they became husband and wife.

This was actually a very long time for the couple to wait, at least by the standards of Jinger's baby-crazy family.

Cradling Jinger

In April, Jinger and Jeremy then told everyone that they were having a girl. Hooray!

"We love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love," the couple stated.

Looking ahead, meanwhile, Jinger will be able to consult with various loved ones about what it's like to have a baby around the house (and when the heck one finds time to sleep!).

After all, Joy-Anna Duggar welcomed a son named Gideon with husband Austin Forsyth in February of this year.

And then Kendra Caldwell gave birth to a son named Garrett David with husband Joseph Duggar on June 8.

As for when fans can get an inside look at Jinger's journey to parenthood?

Counting On returns Monday, July 30 at 9/8c on TLC with new episodes.

Jinger Duggar Gives Birth to First Child!


Following months of anticipation and numerous updates on Instagram, Jinger Duggar and husband Jeremy Vuolo welcomed their first child into the world very early on Thursday morning.

She was born at 4:37 a.m., according to the very proud and excited father himself.

Jinger Duggar Baby Pic

“God is so kind. Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m.,” Vuolo said in a statement not too long ago, adding:

“Felicity weighs 8 lbs and 3 oz, and is 19.5 inches long. Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well.

"We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”

The couple got married in November of 2016 and announced in January of this year that they were expecting.

They did so via a message that read as follows:

The past fourteen months have been the best of our lives as we have had the wonderful privilege of beginning our journey through life together in marriage.

We both looked forward to the joys of marriage but neither one of us fully understood just how amazing the start of this journey would be.

Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning! Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: we are expecting our first child.

We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy.

Jinger-ing All the Way

A few months later, in April, Jinger and Jeremy revealed that they were having a girl.

Citing their own parents this time around, the TLC stars said:

“We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this Summer.

"We especially love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love."

Just a few days ago, Jinger posted her final baby bump photo on social media, making it clear to followers that she was so very close to popping.

Previous to this update, Duggar had posed with a chalkboard and her growing stomach on a near-weekly basis, keeping fans apprised of her progress by comparing the size of her fetus to cantaloupes, bell peppers and pumpkins.

You can see what we mean here:

Jinger Duggar at 38 Weeks

Jinger seemed to have a relatively calm and healthy pregnancy overall.

(Easy for us to sit back from a distance and say, we know.)

"I do think probably what surprised me most is just being so tired all the time," she told Us Weekly at one point in her journey, adding that Jeremy had been a massive help in terms of being in charge of meals and:

"I was never a napper, like having to take a nap, and now it’s like, ‘Ooh! I think I want to nap every day!"

That's good.

She's been catching up on her sleep prior to likely not getting any for awhile.

Jinger Duggar Maternity Photo

Felicity Nicole Vuolo, meanwhile, will be in good company:

Duggar’s sister, Joy-Anna, welcomed a son named Gideon with husband Austin Forsyth in February of this year.

Also, their sister-in-law, Kendra, gave birth to a son named Garrett David with husband Joseph Duggar on June 8.

You'll be able to learn plenty more about Jinger's pregnancy and first child when Counting On returns with new episodes in July 30 at 9/8c.

Here's a preview:

Looks quite quite the adventurous time ahead for all.

Oh, and one more thing of course:


Your baby is absolutely adorable and we wish you the best of luck as parents.

Jinger Duggar: I Am SO SO Ready to Pop!

Any day now, folks.

Any. Day. Now.

Heck, perhaps we need to amend this dramatic introduction a little bit because, really, it's more akin to the following:

Jinger-ing All the Way

Any. Hour. Now.

We refer here, of course, to when Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo will become parents for the first time, as the former just shared the photo above on Instagram and wrote the following as a caption:

"Any day now we will be holding our little girl in our arms!"

She included with this tease a few pink heart emojis.

The popular Counting On stars announced they were expecting their first child in January, revealing that their baby would be a daughter in April.

“We are so happy to announce that we are having a little baby girl!” they told People Magazine at the time, adding in excited detail:

“We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this summer.

"We especially love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love.”

Jinger Duggar Maternity Photo

Since this gender confirmation, the couple has documented Jinger's pregnancy on Instagram, revealing last week that the fetus was the size of a pumpkin!

Prior to that, the precious fetus was compared in size to a cantaloupe and a bell pepper.

"Almost there! Vuolo #38weeks4days,” Jinger captioned her last baby bump photo, which was posted a week ago.

Some basic math means that Duggar is therefore 39 weeks along; with the typical human gestation period being 40 weeks, it all checks out:

The baby really is set to arrive very soon!

Jinger Duggar at 38 Weeks

Whenever she does get here, however, Baby Girl Duggar will NOT be the first new member of her famous family.

Joseph and Kendra Duggar welcomed their first child, a son named Garrett David, in June.

"No matter how many times we’ve experienced the joy of babies born in our families, there’s nothing comparable to the joy in our hearts today! Children truly are a gift from God," the couple said in a statement on their family blog at the time, adding:

"We are so thankful for his safe arrival and this new journey as parents."

Meanwhile, mere months prior, Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband Austin welcomed a son named Gideon Martyn.

He was born in February.

“We are blessed beyond measure with the arrival of our son, Gideon Martyn Forsyth,” they said at the time to People Magazine back then.

“Looking at our child for the first time was such an incredible moment! God is so good, and we are so thankful.”

Jinger Duggar: Ready to Pop!

Our overall point is this:

The Duggars welcome a new child, like, every month.

Or at least every other month.

And viewers will get to see all of these pregnancy journies play out in the upcoming season of Counting On, which premieres on TLC on Monday, July 30.

Will you be tuning in?!?

Jinger Duggar Shows Off Baby Bump, Offers Final Pregnancy Update

Despite rumors that Jinger Duggar has secretly given birth, it appears that the beloved reality star is very much still pregnant.

The mom-to-be offered up some photographic of her current condition on Instagram last night. Check out that little pumpkin!

Jinger Duggar at 38 Weeks

“Almost there! Vuolo #38weeks4days,” she captioned the image.

Obviously, Jinger was able to say it all with just a few words (and one awkward hashtag) in this particular case.

But she was feeling much more expressive in a recent interview with TLC, the Duggar family's official network.

"I get scared thinking about birth and labor," she said.

Yes, over the years, Jinger has earned her reputation as the most candid and forthcoming Duggar, and she's cemented her claim to that title in the final weeks of her pregnancy.

Jinger Duggar at 7 Months

When Us Weekly caught up with Jinger recently, the 24-year-old revealed that carrying a baby had taken a serious toll on her energy levels:

“I do think probably what surprised me most [about pregnancy] is just being so tired all the time,” she revealed.

“They’ve said, ‘Just take a nap, don’t feel bad when you need to lay down in the middle of the day.’"

She added: "Especially when I was in all the morning sickness, I talked to them a lot about what they did, 

"How they got through their morning sickness and I think that was some of the best advice ... just resting, taking it easy.”

Jinger Duggar: Ready to Pop!

Jinger is regarded as a bit of a rebel in the Duggar clan, so it's appropriate that her pregnancy hasn't conformed to her family's customs.

For starters, Jinger and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, broke with convention by waiting almost a year after their wedding to get pregnant.

On top of that, Jinger will soon become the first of her sisters to give birth outside of the family's home state of Arkansas.

She and her new husband moved to Laredo, Texas, where Jeremy works as a minister, shortly after getting hitched.

In recent weeks, we've heard talk that this might not be the soon-to-be-family's last relocation - or their most drastic for that matter.

It's been rumored that Jinger and Jeremy will move to Los Angeles after the baby is born so that he can pursue a divinity school degree.

Needless to say, in the event that they follow through on that, Jinger's pumpkin will be living a much more worldly life than his or her cousins.

Jinger Duggar on Giving Birth: I’m Terrified, Y’all!

Not long after the world learned that Jinger Duggar is pregnant, the beloved reality star revealed her due date to be sometime in early July.

Now, we suppose different folks have different definitions, but for most people, that would mean any date between July 1 and July 15.

Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Throwback

What we're saying is, if it's not already passed, Jinger's due date is very, very close.

And it seems that even though birthing and child-rearing have pretty much been parts of her day-to-day life since childhood, Jinger is currently experiencing the heady mix of emotions that every first time goes through in the final stages of pregnancy.

Speaking with TLC recently, Jinger revealed that she's more than a little frightened by the prospect of giving birth.

"I get scared thinking about birth and labor," she told her home network.

Her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, didn't offer much in the way of help, admitting that he's flat-out clueless about the entire process:

"I don't know much about birth," he said.

Jinger Duggar: Ready to Pop!

Like we said, Jinger must know a thing or two about birth, what with having 13 younger siblings and 10 nieces and nephews.

But in many ways, she and Jeremy are in uncharted territory.

From the very start, they established that their marriage would be different from those of Jinger's sisters.

The most obvious act of rebellion, of course, was Jinger's decision to begin wearing pants instead of floor-length dresses (with her husband's permission of course).

But the couple also set themselves apart in more subtle ways.

Jinger waited a full year after her wedding to get pregnant.

Obviously, there's nothing unusual about that in most cases, but Duggar women typically get pregnant on their honeymoons.

And soon, Jinger will become the first Duggar woman of her generation to give birth outside of the great state of Arkansas.

Again, that may not seem like a big deal, but the Duggars are second only to the Waltons as Arkansas' most famous family, and their ties to their hometown are very strong.

Anyway, it's refreshing to see Jinger being so candid about her trepidation -- we suppose that's just one more way in which she's breaking the mold.

Jinger Duggar SLAMMED By Fans For Endangering Unborn Child!

While we don't know her exact due date, we do know that Jinger Duggar will soon give birth to her first child.

Early in her pregnancy, Jinger revealed that she was expecting to deliver in early July. 

So now that Independence Day has come and gone, it comes as no surprise that fans are intently watching her social media pages for indications that Jinger has gone into labor.

Despite rumors to the contrary, however, it seems that Jinger is still pregnant.

Which is why some fans are upset to see that her hair color has changed slightly.

As you may know, there's some debate as to whether or not it's safe for pregnant women to color their hair.

It seems to be one of those arguments in which junk science and urban legends reign supreme, which is why many of Jinger's Instagram followers saw fit to lecture her in the comments section of her latest Instagram photo.

“How can you safely dye hair while pregnant?” wrote one person.

“I guess I’ve always heard the dangers of the chemicals are an absolute no during pregnancy," another remarked.

Jinger Duggar: Ready to Pop!

Some fans took a subtler route, confessing to ignorance on the matter, then promptly throwing shade:

“Love your hair Jinger! I wasn’t allowed to color mine when I was pregnant," remarked one such follower.

"I was told it could harm the baby. Things must have changed since then.”

Others defended Jinger and pointed out that there's no evidence that mothers can harm fetuses by coloring their hair.

“I’m a licensed cosmetologist and coloring is fine,” countered one person. 

“We do recommend holding off the bleach till done with pregnancy, but it’s really to each his own!”

Jinger Duggar: Pregnancy Pants

Another wrote, “The colored parts in her hair don’t reach to the roots, so I’m pretty sure there’s no problem with it.”

Generally, when you're looking for authoritative answers on a medical question, it's best to look somewhere other than the comments on an Instagram post, and according to the American Pregnancy Association's website, it's perfectly safe for expectant moms to dye their hair:

“Although fairly limited, most research indicates the chemicals found in both semi-permanent and permanent dyes are not highly toxic and are safe to use during pregnancy,” the site reads.

“In addition, only small amounts of hair dye may be absorbed by the skin, leaving little that would be able to reach the fetus. As such, this small amount is not considered harmful to the fetus.”

So we guess Jinger is in the clear on this one.

But don't expect her to take to IG and defend herself against the haters.

For one thing, that would go against Duggar protocol.

Aside from the family firebrand Derick Dillard, no one in the extended Duggar clan engages with online trolls.

And now that Derick has been fired by TLC, you can bet that Jim Bob is more adamant than ever about maintaining a wholesome image on social media.

On top of all that, Jinger has more serious concerns on her mind these days.

She's reportedly in nesting mode at the moment, and she'll soon be the first Duggar woman of her generation to welcome a child outside the state of Arkansas.

It's a lot of pressure -- and we say if Jinger wants to treat herself to some highlights, we should all just ease off and let the woman live!

Jinger Duggar Shares Maternity Photos With Fans: Yes, I’m Still Pregnant!

Earlier this week, fans were convinced that Jinger Duggar had secretly given birth thanks to a cryptic Instagram post shared by her husband, Jeremy Vuolo.

Jinger and Jeremy never confirmed the arrival with an announcement, and now we know there's very good reason for that ...

Jinger Duggar Maternity Photo

As evidenced by a new round of pics posted last night, Jinge is very much still pregnant.

The couple posted one artsy shot on their Instagram page with the rest available on their joint website.

"We’re so excited to have pictures back from our maternity photo shoot," Jinger captioned the pic.

As many fans have pointed out, the fact that the photos were taken at the Walt Disney Concert Hall may be a sly way of confirming the rumor that Jinger and Jeremy are moving to Los Angeles.

Vuolo was recently accepted into a doctoral theology program in the city but has not yet revealed if he plans to enroll.

In a statement on the couple's website, Jinger confirmed that she and Jeremy have spent some time in LA yet, but made no mention of their future plans:

Jinger Duggar: Ready to Pop!

"A couple of weeks ago, Jeremy and I traveled to Los Angeles for meetings at The Master’s Seminary," Jinger wrote. 

"While there we had the privilege of spending time with our dear friend Madisen Mahoney," she added.

"Since I was in my 34th week of pregnancy and Madisen is a wonderfully skilled photographer, we thought it made sense to head to downtown LA and take a few pictures! Here are the results."

In a way, relocating to the West Coast would be a dream come true for the mom-to-be, who has always open about her desire to live in a major city.

In her youth, Jinger often spoke of moving to New York City, much to her parents' chagrin.

Jeremy proposed to Jinger in New York as a way of honoring her childhood ambitions.

So the question of where Jinger and Jeremy will raise their child remains a mystery.

But on other issues, Jinger has been an open book.

We know, for example, that she's expecting a baby girl, and her due date is in early July:

“We are so happy to announce that we are having a BABY GIRL!” she wrote in a blog post in April.

“We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this Summer.

"We especially love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love.”

And of course, fans are almost as excited as the expectant mom and dad.

Jinger Duggar: Has She Secretly Given Birth?!

It's been over six months since the world learned that Jinger Duggar is pregnant with her first child.

The announcement came much later than expected, not only because Jinger broke the Duggar tradition of getting pregnant almost immediately after saying "I do," but also because she waited until her second trimester to share the news with fans.

Jinger Duggar: Ready to Pop!

Now, it looks as though Jeremy and Jinger might be keeping yet another big secret from their adoring public.

Jeremy posted the above photo to his Instagram account today, and fans are convinced it's his way of hinting that Jinger is knocked up.

It's a bit of a stretch, but the theory goes something like this:

As you can see, that's the most recent photo of Jinger's baby bump.

She usually posts just about every day, but this pic is several days old.

So Jeremy posted a slightly outdated image, along with a caption reading simply, "ETA: Soon."

Jinger Duggar at 7 Months

Again, hardly a definitive announcement, but we suppose it's not hard to see why some fans have jumped to conclusions.

"Is she in labor?!" one fan asked point-blank.

"Hope she's in labor and has a smooth delivery!" another remarked.

Several fans cut right to the chase and commented simply, "Congrats!"

The Vuolos have yet to respond.

And that's interesting, as many fans think this is a case in which their silence speaks volumes.

But even more interesting is the fact that Jeremy's pic launched an intense conversation about the sinfulness of iWatches.

Jinger Duggar at 34 Weeks

Yes, iWatches.

Apparently, two of Jeremy's nuttier followers believe the popular Apple device is the work of the devil, and since Jinger is wearing one in the pic, they figured this would be the perfect time to share that opinion.

"You can’t evolve and love thy God ... I don’t believe in it. Didn’t evolve from a money or ape and I hope Jinger isn’t evolving either that would be so sad," wrote Nutjob 1.

"iWatch makes sin automatic. Same with the Apple phones," Nutjob 2 replied, adding:

"Pornographers is up 689% since 2007 when Aphone came out. iWatch is going to double that with all the porn on the watch. Men are easily led to lust and women too."

"I would be so sad if she evolved to an ape with an iPhone watch," sayeth the first nutjob.

"In the semen that my Pasture gave today he spoke of the devil that resides in them there iWatches. Just to easy to sin with those things on," responded her nutty friend.

"People getting send pornography on them. Using Siri to satisfy burgers and also losing sight of the lord and focusing too much on time," the best conversation in the history of the world concluded.

You heard the nutjobs!

Listen to the semen and stop using Siri to satisfy your burgers!
