Jinger Duggar Due Date: REVEALED!

Jeremy Vuolo has gone ahead and spilled the baby beans.

In updating the biography on his church’s website, the pastor and reality star summarized his journey of faith and family, adding a new paragraph at the bottom about his relationship with Jinger Duggar.

And it’s a rather revealing paragraph, for one reason in particular.

The unexpected addition reads as follows:

Jeremy and his wife Jinger were married in November 2016 and now reside together in Laredo, Texas, on the border of the United States and Mexico, as Jeremy continues to serve as the pastor of Grace Community Church.

They are expecting their first child in July of 2018.

We added the italics and the bold for emphasis because this is the first we’ve heard of just when Jinger is expected to give birth.

We first heard about the child itself back on January 3 when Jinger and Jeremy shared the very simple, very informative and very sweet photo below.

It gets right to the point, doesn’t it?

The couple has only been married for a little over a year, but it only takes one instance of unprotected sex to create a baby.

(Keep that mind, all you kids out there.)

And, as we all know of course, members of the Duggar family waste no time at all when it comes to procreating.

Once that ring is on the woman’s finger, a certain body part (the penis) gets inserted into another certain body part (the vagina) as often as it takes to create life.

In response to their big news, famous loved ones sent their best wishes to Jinger and Jeremy, starting with Derick Dillard.

“Congratulations Jinger and Jeremy on expecting your first child!” wrote the controversial star two weeks ago, adding:

“We are so excited for y’all and know you’ll make excellent parents! Israel and Sam are getting at least 43% more cousins in 2018 and they be excited like WOOO!!!”

Ben Seewald later chimed in as follows:

“3 weddings in less than a year’s time, with @jeremy_vuolo & @jingervuolo, @austinandjoyforsyth, Joe & Kendra! 3 new babies (all boys) born in 2017, Henry, Samuel & Mason! And now…

“3 new babies due in 2018! Boys or girls, what are your guesses?”

Indeed, Joy-Anna is also pregnant, with fans wondering whether she will give birth birth or whether Jinger will become a mother first.

We have no way of knowing, of course.

Joy-Anna has not yet come out with her due date.

Which of these women do YOU think will give birth first?

Leave a comment below with your opinion.

And also with anything else you feel a need to say about this family.

They sure to elicit a range of emotions, don’t they?

Jinger Duggar Pregnancy Announcement: Her Family Reacts!

Yesterday, Duggar fans received news they’ve been anticipating for over a year:

The family announced that Jinger Duggar is pregnant with her first child.

Jinger married Jeremy Vuolo 14 months ago, and Duggar women typically get to work on making babies shortly after the vows are exchanged.

Rumors of Jinger being secretly pregnant began to circulate almost immediately, but for reasons that still aren’t entirely clear, Jinger and Jeremy decided to wait.

Obviously, they don’t owe anyone an explanation, and fortunately, it seems fans and family members are too busy celebrating to ask for one.

The Duggars and their in-laws took to social media yesterday to share their elation over Jinger and Jeremy’s joyous news.

Interestingly, first up was Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard.

Derick was recently fired by TLC after expressing some wildly controversial views on social media.

This week, however, he’s been all positivity, wishing Jinger and Jeremy all the best on Instagram:

“Congratulations Jinger and Jeremy on expecting your first child! We are so excited for y’all and know you’ll make excellent parents! Israel and Sam are getting at least 43% more cousins in 2018 and they be excited like WOOO!!!” Derick wrote.

Yes, Derick is now using “urban slang.”

We guess that’s an indication of his excitement.

Not to be outdone, another of Jinger’s brothers-in-law Ben Seewald, who pointed out just how rapidly the Duggar clan is expanding:

“3 weddings in less than a year’s time, with @jeremy_vuolo & @jingervuolo, @austinandjoyforsyth, Joe & Kendra! 3 new babies (all boys) born in 2017, Henry, Samuel & Mason! And now… 3 new babies due in 2018! Boys or girls, what are your guesses?” Ben asked his followers.

On their official Facebook page, the Duggars themselves offered up the following message of congratulations:

“Congratulations Jeremy and Jinger!! We are so excited and can’t wait to meet this little one!”

Some fans are disappointed by the fact that the Duggars clearly have no intention of explaining why Jinger took so much longer than her other married siblings to start a family.

But for now, the Vuolos are clearly only interested in receiving one kind of message from fans–words of congratulations.

1. A Baby For Jinger!

By Duggar standards, it’s been a long wait! Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo were married for well over a year before they announced that she’s expecting. No word yet on when the bundle of joy is due, but Jinger won’t be alone in shopping for maternity clothes…

You heard it here first! Our Duggar insider says John-David is involved in a low-key courtship with a woman who lives in Texas. (Fortunately, JD owns his own single-engine plane for easy traveling.) Will he announce his romance in 2018? Only time will tell! And of course, that would be far from the biggest surprise the Duggars have in store this year…

Jinger Duggar: Pregnant With First Child!

The wait is finally over, Duggar Nation.

After more than a year of marriage, Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are starting this new year off on the best possible note:

With a new addition! She’s pregnant!

Unlike the previous 250 times it’s been reported that Jinger Duggar is pregnant since she got hitched in 2016, it’s the real deal this time. 

This is not a drill. See image above.

The 24-year-old Counting On star is pregnant for real, she tells Us Weekly, gushing to the celebrity news magazine about it in a statement.

Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo write:

“The past 14 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.”

Jinger and Jeremy then praised the Lord above:

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

The duo says: “We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy.”

The couple also shared Psalm 139:13-14. 

That verse from the Bible reads: “13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”

“14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”

For Jinger, sixth eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s 19 kids, this marks a holiday blessing more than a year in the making.

Granted, for most newlywed couples, waiting a year to have a baby is far from abnormal; Duggar families move faster, however.

Jill and Jessa Duggar both got pregnant very quickly after getting married, as did Joseph Duggar’s new wife Kendra Caldwell.

Most notably, Joy-Anna conceived pretty much the day she tied the knot (unless you believe the shotgun wedding rumors).

But debating whether or not Joy-Anna is lying about her due date is a discussion for another time. Today is all about Jinger.

A longtime fan favorite for her (relative) rebellious streak, Jinger’s plan to expand her family has been a popular topic among the community.

It’s a journey she and her pastor husband, 30, have been eager to embark on since their engagement, even if it took longer than expected.

“I love kids,” the former professional soccer player said two years ago, adding that, “I really share Jinger’s love for children.”

“I definitely want to have children, but we’re not sure how many,” he explained. “We’ll have to see what the Lord provides.” 

Jinger, who calls Jeremy an “answer to my prayers,” never really addressed the pregnancy speculation of 2017, one way or another.

While fans wondered non-stop about what Jim Bob would do if he learned about Jinger Duggar on birth control, she just did her thing.

Often times, that flew in the face of convention.

She moved to Texas, she traveled, she wore pants, shorts and other garments you don’t associate with Duggars, and she lived life.

We may never know the reasons it took her so long to get pregnant, or if there was any real reason at all. Maybe it just, y’know, happened.

What we do know is that she’s over the moon, and that she’ll be a terrific mother and a strong woman who charts her own path in life.

It’s no wonder she’s one of our favorites.

Jinger Duggar in Pants: New Fashion Icon?

With each passing day, Duggar fans grow louder in demanding a Jinger Duggar pregnancy announcement. We don’t know when it will come. Some fans don’t know if it will come.

In the mean time, Jinger still wears pants with her husband’s blessing, as you’ll see in two new photos below. This time, though, her fashion choices caused fans to ask some questions.

And who better to talk women’s fashion than … Jeremy Vuolo?

Jinger Duggar, as a family “rebel,” continues to be a little divisive among Duggar fans.

Most conservative Christian families would be delighted at a woman who gets married right away to a conservative Christian man — without having premarital sex or any of the other, you know, things that most humans do.

And sure, plenty of Duggar fans applaud Jinger for getting a husband who has a few theological differences with her father …

(Of course, one of those differences is that Jeremy Vuolo thinks that the fundamentalist Duggars aren’t harsh enough against gay people, which … is a pretty extreme view)

… and who allows her to wear pants.

Other Duggar fans, however, continue to freak out whenever they see her wearing the devil’s leggings or whatever they think that pants are.

Jeremy Vuolo shared this photo of Jinger — again wearing pants, and included the caption:

“Standing outside Tenth Presbyterian Church where the late Dr. James Montgomery Boice pastored for 32 years. He was a remarkable gift to the church as a whole and is one of my and @jingervuolo’s favorite authors.”

Boice was a conservative theologian noted for his devotion to the Christian concept of Biblical Inerrancy.

Fans were less curious about dead religious thinkers and more about Jinger’s shoes.

Fan comments were, though harmless compared to some of the hate that Duggars get on social media, definitely fashion-oriented.

“Those shoes are giving me life! I need them in my life!”

(Kind of weird to see phrasing by Duggar fans that you’d expect to hear on, like, RuPaul’s Drag Race)

“What kind of shoes does she have on?”

It was Jeremy Vuolo who responded, lending his fashion expertise to identify the shoes as “Converse Chuck’s wedges.”

(For those interested, the full name of the shoes is Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Lux Wedge Sneakers, which is a ridiculously long name for a line of sneakers)

Odd to hear anyone looking to a Duggar daughter as a fashion icon or trendsetter though.

Under this photo, Jeremy Vuolo used a quote for his caption:

“‘A true wife is the husband’s better half, his flower of beauty, and his heart’s treasure. In her company he finds his earthly heaven; she is the light of his home, the comfort of his soul.’ ~ C.H. Spurgeon”

Spurgeon was an 18th Century conservative theologian. He was a diehard Baptist who was also a noted abolitionist.

Comments here were also less interested in religious doctrine or quotes about marriage, and instead commented on Jinger’s choice of clothing:

“OMG they let her wear jeans.”

(The “they” is literally just Jeremy Vuolo … we’ll get to that in a moment)

“Omg Jinger you are STUNNING!” another fan wrote. “Those jeans look so nice on you!”

That second compliment was a nice way of addressing the jeans-wearing without sounding ignorant.

The first … well, if you keep up with the Duggar daughters on their adventures in adulthood, it can be frustrating to read comments from people who think that Jim Bob’s allowing this.

Under the particular brand of Christian fundamentalism to which Jim Bob adheres, his daughters may not wear pants … until they are married off, at which point they are effectively the property of their husbands and their husbands can make those kinds of choices.

Jeremy Vuolo has stated that he doesn’t believe that Jesus saves people to make them wear skirts, which sounds like sound theological reasoning to us.

Jinger Duggar: I’m Wearing Pants & I’m Still Not Pregnant!

Birthdays in the Duggar family are not like birthdays elsewhere in civilized society.

As we learned from Jordyn Duggar’s birthday earlier this week, the Duggars even have their own Jesus-centric birthday song, because of course they do.

But Jinger Duggar isn’t like the rest of her siblings, a fact that she reminded us of again this week.

The fan favorite and resident rebel turned 24 this week, and she marked the occasion with activities that we don’t commonly associate with Duggar women–namely, wearing pants and not being pregnant.

Yes, Jinger wearing pants is nothing new at this point, but all the same, there are Duggar obsessives who go full-Carrie’s mom every time they see her sporting her blasphemous leg wear.

As for the fact that Jinger still isn’t pregnant after more than a year of marrige, well … she’s responding to fan curiosity on that score in the most rebellious and admirable way possible:

She’s simply refusing to answer any questions about the situation.

It’s one of the many ways in which Jinger gives us hope for this family’s future.

Jinge’s husband Jeremy Vuolo posted the above photo of his pants-clad wite to celebrate her big day.

“Happy Birthday to this pretty lady. God has blessed her with twenty-four years of life today and I’ve had the privilege of spending one of those years at her side as her husband,” he captioned the image.

“May God be pleased to grant her many more.”

Nice try, Jeremy, but clearly the devilry here knows no bounds.

First, what sort of structure is Jinger seated in?

Certainly doesn’t look like any church we’ve ever seen.

Also, are those rose pedals on the ground?

Rose pedals belong in romance novels in which Fabio beds some sort of lonely sea wench, not in Duggar birthday photos.

And don’t get us started on the jeans and barren uterus!

We kid, of course.

Jinger’s birthday photo as almost as inoffensive as humanly possible, but the Duggars are playing a different game than the rest of us.

In their eyes, not only is Jinger angering Jesus by wearing comfortable clothing, she’s thumbing her nose at the family business by refusing to get knocked up.

She’s not the hero her siblings deserve … but she’s the hero they need.

Jinger Duggar: Birth Control Rumors Spread as Fan Favorite Remains Childless

Earlier this week, the world learned that Kendra Caldwell is pregnant with Joseph Duggar’s baby.

As is always the case with Duggar baby news, the announcement was greeted with enthusiasm from the family’s devoted fan base–but it also reminded many of a mystery that continues to grow with the passage of time:

It’s been over a year since Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo got married, and yet the couple remains childless.

As the pregnancies of Kendra Caldwell and Joy-Anna Duggar have recently reminded us, this is highly unusual in Jinger’s family.

(Kendra and Joy both announced that they’re expecting within a few months of tying the knot. Some believe that Joy didn’t even wait until she was married.)

Thus far, all of Jinger’s sisters have gotten pregnant within a year of getting married, and some have even given birth prior to their one-year anniversary.

So it’s not hard to see why fans are growing increasingly curious about Jinger and Jeremy’s apparent reluctance to start a family.

Some have even gone so far as to suggest that Jinger is on birth control.

Like wearing pants as a woman or marrying a man whose religious beliefs don’t perfectly coincide with your father’s, using birth control is no big deal throughout most of the civilized world, but these are the Duggars we’re talking about.

They’re civilized in the sense that they sleep indoors and use silverware, but they’d be the first to tell you that their belief system bears little in common with the average American’s code of conduct.

Birth control is strictly forbidden in the Duggars’ world, and Jim Bob and Michelle have even recorded videos in which they preach about its evils.

Jinger may rebel against her parents’ teachings in small, mostly inconsequential ways (see the aforementioned wearing of pants), but finding out that she’s using birth control would likely push Jim Bob and Michelle over the edge.

Fortunately, for the most part, Duggar fans have proven to be uncharacteristically level-headed with regard to this issue.

Recently, the Duggars posted a photo of Jeremy and Jinger on their Facebook page, and the comments section quickly devolved into the usual flurry of uterine speculation.

But for every “fan” throwing shade, there were three getting Jinger’s back:

“Jinger raised kids all her life, she might not want kids or she just wants to wait,” one commenter wrote.

“Maybe they’re not waiting, maybe she’s having trouble conceiving. Give the poor girl a break, when she’s pregnant they’ll announce it,” remarked another.

“I think these two are being smart and will choose to have children on their own timetable,” a third wrote.

Is it possible that Duggar fans are beginning to let go of their judgmental tendencies a bit?

Maybe, but many of these same people will likely lose it if 2018 passes without any baby news from Jinger.

Jinger Duggar Pregnancy: Fans Demand an Announcement!

Just three months after getting married, Kendra Caldwell is pregnant with Joseph Duggar’s baby!

Plenty of people are congratulating the couple, including fans and fellow Duggars.

But seeing Jinger Duggar celebrate the good news has fans demanding to know when Jinger will make a pregnancy announcement of her own.

You certainly don’t have to be a member of the Duggar fertility cult to face expectations that you’ll get pregnant and have a baby soon.

Plenty of people from normal families dread the holidays and family gatherings because they’re tired of questions about when they’ll put their uterus to work because some other relative wants grandkids or niblings or whatever.

Obviously, that’s not fair — your body is your own, and you don’t owe anyone grandbabies.

With the Duggars, however, these expectations are taken to greater extremes.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have 19 children. 19.

They expect for all of their brood to not only continue to live their lives by Jim Bob’s fundamentalist beliefs about male supremacy and rejecting most of society, but also to follow their parents’ footsteps in having as many children as possible.

In other words, Jim Bob and Michelle are expecting literally hundreds of grandchildren.

Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell got married back in September.

It’s December and Kendra is already pregnant with the couple’s first child.

Considering that the average fertile couple has to try for about a year to create a viable pregnancy, that’s pretty fast. (That’s average, though, meaning that some people take a couple of years and others get it on the first try)

While Joseph and Kendra perhaps didn’t conceive as quickly as Joy-Anna and Austin (who may have broken courtship rules and had a shotgun wedding), that’s still fast.

The Duggars, of course, gave Joseph and Kendra’s good news a very public shout-out. Jinger said:

“Congratulations, Joe and Kendra. We’re so excited for you guys.”

Jeremy Vuolo added: “We cannot wait to meet the little one. We’re so grateful to God for giving you a little baby so soon. We love you guys, and hope to see you soon.”

When fans saw Jinger Duggar publicly congratulate her brother and her sister-in-law on their pregnancy, they had questions.

Namely: why was 19-year-old Kendra Caldwell having a baby before 23-year-old Jinger Duggar?

In the real world, those would both be somewhat young ages for pregnancy. Actually, with a 19-year-old, you can lose the “somewhat.”

Fans took to Facebook to offer their hopes, prayers, and encouragement that Jinger and Jeremy will become parents.

One fan wrote: “Praying for you Jinger. Hope you get pregnant soon. Your babies will be gorgeous too”

Another asked: “When is Jinger going to announce she’s expecting?”

That second comment may be a reference to the commonly held belief that Jinger Duggar is already pregnant.

Of course, other fans were quick to remind people that Jinger and Jeremy may be taking their time.

Jinger Duggar wears pants — because Jeremy Vuolo allows it. She also listens to (gasp!) secular music.

It may be that she and Jeremy are using some form of birth control.

It’s also possible that they’re just … not pregnant. They’ve been married for, like, a year. They may just have bad timing, or one of them may struggle with fertility issues. It happens.

The only thing that we know for sure is that fans pushing Jinger to get pregnant soon isn’t going to do any good.

Jinger Duggar: Confirming Pregnancy With Latest Instagram Pic?

For over a year now, Jinger Duggar pregnancy rumors have been circulating non-stop on social media.

Thus far, there’s been no official word from Jinger and husband Jeremy Vuolo about whether or not they’ll be expanding their family anytime soon.

But in recent, weeks many fans have become convinced the couple is slyly hinting that there’s a bun in the oven.

The speculation began when Jeremy posted pic of Jinger enjoying this week’s unexpected snowfall in Laredo, Texas.

Fans were convinced that Jinger was sporting baggy clothes in order to conceal a baby bump.

At one point, Jeremy posted a video clip that seemed to show Jinger rubbing her belly, and that really set Duggar obsessives off.

At this point, they’ve stopped just short of picking out names and knitting booties.

Tellingly, Jinger and Jeremy did not issue a denial amidst all the pregnancy rumors.

Instead, they posted the pic below, which a lot of fans believe is loaded with hidden meaning:

On the surface, it’s just a photo of a married couple enjoying a tender moment.

And in all likelihood, there’s nothing more than that going on here.

But that hasn’t stopped Jinger pregnancy conspiracy theorists from reading way too much into this thing.

Their theory is that the couple’s silence on the matter speaks volumes.

And this pic, presented without comment, is being interpreted as the Vuolo’s way of subtly confirming that the fans are correct in their assumptions.

It’s a a long-shot, maybe, but it’s not as ridiculous as it might seem at first.

After all, if and when Jinger does get pregnant she likely be able to share the news with fans until her father Jim Bob (aka “the Kris Jenner of Arkansas”) figures out a way to use the reveal as a ratings booster.

Jinger being the resident rebel in her family, it would come as much of a surprise if she figured out a way to defy Jim Bob without actually going against him in such a way that might jeopardize her future earnings.

Again, it’s important to note that many assumptions are being made on the basis of single, innocent-seeming Instagram pic.

That said, it’s far from the craziest theory Duggar fans have come up with.

Jinger Duggar Rocking Pants, Hiding Baby Bump on Instagram?!

Ever since Jinger Duggar married Jeremy Vuolo, fans have been eagerly awaiting an announcement that the newlyweds are expecting their first child.

More than a year later, however, there’s still no official word on the matter.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped fans from combing through the couple’s social media posts in search of clues.

The Vuolos latest pics show them enjoying the unexpected snowfall in Laredo, Texas over the weekend.

While the focus of the photos is meant to be the weather, fans have mostly zeroed in on two other details:

For one thing, Jinger is wearing pants, thus still defying the strict dress code under which she was raised.

Even more than her legwear, however, followers are obsessed with what they believe is the first official glimpse of Jinger’s baby bump.

Granted, this isn’t the first time that Duggar fans have claimed to have spotted a sure sign that Jinger is expecting, but a video posted by Jeremy offers the most compelling evidence yet:

Jeremy captioned the clip, “The weather outside is frightful.”

But again, it’s not the weather that’s caught fans’ attention.

As you can see, Jinger seems to be moving … well, gingerly.

She also appears to be protecting her midsection, and at one point she rubs her belly.

Sure, she’s not wearing a t-shirt that says, “Baby on Board,” but at this point, fans will take whatever “evidence” they can find.

Even the fact that Jinger is wearing sweatpants is being cited as proof that she’s expecting.

Jinger has been wearing pants and even shorts for several months now, but they’re usually more stylish and form-fitting than the sweatpants she sported this week.

The style decision may simply be a response to the weather, but don’t tell that to the hundreds of fans who are basically taking these posts as a pregnancy announcement.

At this point, if and when Jinger does reveal that she’s got a bun in the oven, the reveal will almost feel anti-climactic.

Almost.
