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.
