Jinger Duggar Gives Birth to First Child!

SHE’S HERE!

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 exciting father himself.

“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.

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

Citing their own parents this time around, the TLC star 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 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.

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:

Oh, and one more thing of course:

CONGRATULATIONS TO JINGER AND JEREMY!

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:

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.”

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!

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.”

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:

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

Obviously, Jinger was able to say it all with just a few words in this case.

But she was feeling much more expressive in a recent interview with TLC.

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

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.

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 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 Vuolo moved to Laredo, Texas shortly after getting hitched.

In recent weeks, 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, 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.

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.

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, 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.

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!”

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 other 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 these days, 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 …

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:

“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.

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.”

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.

“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,” wronte Nutjob 1.

“iWatch makes sin automatic. Same with the Apple phones,” Nutjob 2 replied.

“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!

We’ll keep you posted on any and all #BabyVuolo updates, so stop watching your watch porn and pay attention!

Jinger Duggar to Give Birth Very “Soon,” Reliable Source Teases

Brace yourselves, reality TV fans and celebrity gossip followers:

Another member of the Duggar family will be joining us in the near future.

In fact, Jinger Duggar may very well be in labor right at this very moment.

While she isn’t due until early next month, this seems like a strong possibility because Jinger’s husband, Jeremy Vuolo, shared a new photo of him and his wife on Instagram.

In it, both halves of this semi-famous couple are smiling excitedly, while Jinger’s baby bump is perhaps more prominent than ever.

Especially telling, though? Jeremy’s accompanying caption to this sweet image.

“ETA: Soon,” he simply wrote.

ETA, for those unaware, stands for Estimated Time of Arrival, meaning the couple’s first child may be here any day now.

EEEK! How exciting, right?!?

For her part, Jinger has been keeping fans across the Internet well apprised of her status and her pregnancy journey in general.

She’s taken a fun and unusual approach to sharing baby bump pictures, doing so at various stages over the past nine months and comparing her fetus each time to different kinds of fruit and vegetables.

In terms of its size, that is.

In the image immediately above, for example, Jinger explained that the child was akin to a cantaloupe around the 34-week mark.

She also used bell peppers and pineapples in the past to depict this same fact to her many Instagram followers.

“Praying for an easy birth!,” wrote one Jinger follower in response to this new photo, while another chimed in as follows:

“You guys look so happy. You are both gonna make amazing parents.:

Jinger and Jeremy aren’t just getting set to welcome their first kid, meanwhile.

They also may be moving to Los Angeles and anchoring their very own reality show at some point down the line.

Why else would Jeremy have recently been accepted to study at a divinity school in this California city?

Jinger, you likely recall, became the first Duggar woman of her generation to permanently move away from Arkansas when she shifted to Texas two years ago.

We wouldn’t go so far as to call her a rebel, but she certainly has shown signs of being a tad bit rebelious.

Lastly, in case you’ve forgotten, Jinger and Jeremy will be greeting a daughter when the big day finally arrives. 

They made this major reveal in April, saying at the time:

“We are so happy to announce that we are having a little baby girl!”

“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.”

Good luck, Jinger!

We wish you a pain-free labor… or at least as close to one as possible!

Duggar Pants Scandal: Has Jinger Been Rocking Jeans For Longer Than We Thought?!

The narrative regarding Jinger Duggar’s decision to wear pants in defiance of her family’s dress code usually goes something like this:

Jinger married Jeremy Vuolo, and like a wizard granting freedom to a house elf, he gave her the gift of liberty in the form of an article of clothing.

Jeremy allowed Jinger to wear pants as a sort of public but extremely mild eff-you to her domineering dad.

Or at least that’s the story we’ve been told up to this point.

But perhaps Jinger earned her rebel cred much earlier than anyone thought.

And perhaps she didn’t need the help of a man to assert her independence.

The photo below first appeared on social media in 2017.

But eagle-eyed fans recently noted that it was taken in 2015!

Yes, that’s Jinger wearing pants months before her courtship with Jeremy began.

And second from left? That’s Joy-Anna Duggar — who’s also wearing pants!

Granted, these are snow pants we’re talking about, and the ladies are clearly about to embark on some sort of wilderness expedition.

But for most of their upbringing, the “no pants” rule was inflexible.

Women were forced to wear long skirts at all times, even while playing sports or engaging in other outdoor activities, as evidenced by video in which Joy-Anna lifts weights in a floor-length skirt.

So the revelation that exceptions were made is rather surprising.

The above photo appeared on Jinger’s Instagram page earlier this week.

As you can see, she’s proudly rocking both pants and a sizable baby bump.

Fans have had nothing but praise for both the pic and Jinger’s rebellious spirit:

“I love how she is just always herself and doesn’t conform to others’ orders — for example, the pants. #strong #blessed, ” one fan wrote on Instagram. 

“You look so beautiful, @jingervuolo — even in your pants. I’m glad to see that you’re being the person I always knew you would grow up to be, your own person,” commented another.

Something tells us Jinger will soon be the most free-spirited mother the Duggar clan has ever seen.

Jinger Duggar: Check Out My Cantaloupe of a Baby!

Jinger Duggar is in the home stretch of her pregnancy.

But instead of worrying about the stretch marks to come, this reality star is simply focused on sharing every moment of her journey with fans around the Internet.

Duggar once again took to Instagram on Wednesday night and shared a sweet/funny/precious photo of her baby bump, which is really rolling along now and getting close to extinction.

Which is to say:

Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo are about to become first-time parents!

Continuing a tradition she started early in her second trimester, Jinger posed yesterday alongside a chalkboard that listed two key pieces of information:

  1. How far along she is in her pregnancy.
  2. What her baby resembles at the moment.

If you recall, Jinger previously explained that her fetus was the size of a pineapple.

At 25 weeks, the TLC personality compared her baby at that stage to the size of a cauliflower.

At 22 weeks? Can you guess? Too late…

it was akin to a papaya!JSinger simply wrote “#34 weeks” as a caption to this image, along with a baby emoji and a couple heart emojis.

Apparently in a sentimental mood as she counts down the days until she and Jeremy welcome their bundle of joy, Duggar also posted the above snapshot of the famous couple this week.

It’s an old picture that recounts a rather monumental day in their lives.

“Throwback to that incredible day the love of my life asked me to be his wife!” wrote Jinger as a caption.

Because she’s a Duggar and because the family has a certain set of strict dating rules, this means that Jinger and Jeremy officially agreed to get married on this day AND to have sex for the first time at some point down the line.

Like we said: it was a monumental occasion.

Announced the couple back in early January, upon confirming they were expecting:

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.

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.

Oh, and did we mention that Jinger is pregnant with a girl?!?

Because she is.

The reality star passed this news along to their fans in April, saying at the time:

“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.”

Look for the next Duggar to enter the world in either late July or early August.

How exciting, right?!?
