Jeremy Vuolo and Jinger Duggar Gush Over Baby Felicity!

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.

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:

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 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?

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.

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 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.

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:

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.

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!”

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?

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.

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.

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.”

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.”

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.

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.

OOPS!

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?

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.

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.”

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.

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?

Jeremy Vuolo to Jinger Duggar: Forget About Jim Bob’s Rules! (Exclusive)

It’s been eighteen months since Jinger Duggar married Jeremy Vuolo, and to say a lot has changed in the reality star’s life in that time would be to put it very mildly.

These days, Jinger is pregnant with her first child, and it seems she has every intention of following in her sisters’ footsteps and raising a large family with husband Jeremy Vuolo.

But in many ways, Jinger is living a life that’s very different from those of her siblings, and likely very different from the one her domineering father, Jim Bob Duggar, had envisioned for her.

Much has been made of Jinger’s departures from her family’s stringent code of conduct.

The most obvious way in which the 24-year-old has flouted her father’s rules is by disregarding his famous dress code.

Yes, as you’ve likely heard, Jinger has been wearing pants.

That may not sound like a big deal, but after a spending her entire childhood in mandated below-the-knee skirts, we imagine Jinger got quite a thrill out of slipping on her first pair of Levi’s

Of course, that’s the only way in which Jinger has defied her upbringing and forged her own identity.

Jinger’s parents have reportedly expressed concerns about everything from her decision to relocate to Laredo, Texas to hthe fact that she was married to Vuolo for over a year before she announced her first pregnancy.

(It’s not uncommon for Duggar daughters or women who marry into the family to conceive on their honeymoons.)

A former employee of the Duggars spoke with The Hollywood Gossip exclusively and revealed that Jinger’s husband has encouraged her not to fear her father and to live a life that aligns with her own values, not Jim Bob’s.

“Jinger, she’s off on her own trip, and I’m kind of glad, because she’s been hemmed up so long for many years,” the insider tells us.

“She just needed to spread her wings and realize that God still loves her and there is a life after all that seclusion.”

Not surprisingly, rumors about Jim Bob clashing with Vuolo have been common over the course of the past year, and Vuolo likely knew that he was making a powerful enemy when he encouraged Jinger to break her father’s rules.

But it seems Jeremy realized that Jinger could never be entirely happy living under her Jim Bob’s thumb. 

“When you put someone in a bubble like that and they get out – she went rampant, totally rampant,” says our source.

“Her husband said, ‘This is the way it’s going to be – I’m the boss of this family. You’re not doing anything wrong by wearing pants or showing your arms.'”

The insider tells us that he still gets regular updates about the Vuolos from friends who live in laredo, and he’s pleased to report that Jinger has found happiness in her new life.

“I just worry about some of them kids,” he tells us.

And our source has a prediction about which of Jim Bob’s offspring will be next to rebel against their strict upbringing:

“Josiah’s going to be the next one to bust out,” he says.

We’re sure that’s something that many Duggar fans will eagerly look forward to.

Jeremy Vuolo: We Should Just IGNORE Suicidal People!

Just when you thought Jeremy Vuolo was one of the more intelligent Duggar in-laws…

Jinger Duggar’s husband is a pro soccer player-turned preacher; he’s butted heads with Jim Bob, and he’s rebuffed some of his in-law’s more ridiculous rules.

But as we were reminded this week, Jeremy is capable of being every bit as ignorant as his controversial father-in-law:

Jeremy recently tweeted about a story in which a man tried to coerce a woman into marrying her by threatening suicide:

“Alan Redpath tells the story of a young woman who came to her pastor desperate and despondent. She said, ‘There is a man who says he loves me so much he will kill himself if I don’t marry him. What should I do?’” Vuolo wrote.

“‘Do nothing,’ he replied. ‘That man doesn’t love you; he loves himself. Such a threat isn’t love; it is pure selfishness.’”

Here’s the thing – obviously, this woman shouldn’t marry this mentally ill man just because she’s afraid he might harm himself.

But she also shouldn’t “do nothing,” as her pastor advises.

She should offer help. 

She should speak with him, contact authorities, his family, whoever she needs to because it could mean saving a life, which seems like a mighty Christian thing to do.

Not surprisingly, fans were almost universally critical of Jeremy’s advice.

“Get what you’re saying but I think you need to be careful when you talk about ignoring suicidal people,” tweeted one fan.

“More like mental illness…in need of professional help. God calls people to be psychiatrists to help people just as much as he calls people to be ministers,” wrote another.

Jinger and Jeremy are expecting their first child these days, and many are hoping that as parents, they’ll leave some of her family’s more outdated traditions in the past.

Jinger is the most rebellious of her siblings, having already broken with some of her family’s more arcane rules, such as the requirement that women wear dresses of long skirts at all times.

Unfortunately, all of that means very little if she and Jeremy aren’t willing to take a more modern approach to such issues as child development and mental health.

Here’s hoping Vuolo will eventually come around to the idea that not everyone who experiences a suicidel impulse is just a manipulatvie jerk.

Jeremy Vuolo Talks Jinger Duggar Pregnancy, Trolls Jim Bob

It’s been almost a month since we first learned that Jinger Duggar is expecting her first child, and the beloved 24-year-old is clearly enjoying sharing her excitement with fans.

While her sister Joy-Anna continues to keep a low-profile, Jinger has already shared her due date and posted a pic in which her long-awaited baby bump can clearly be seen.

Not surprisingly, it seems Jeremy Vuolo is every bit as psyched as his wife is about the idea of starting a family.

Vuolo sat down for a rare interview over the weekend, and he candidly shared his thoughts about becoming a father.

“Well, I have a family on the way here,” Jeremy said.

“My wife is pregnant and due in July with our first. But I think it begins with establishing that relationship with your wife and I think just walking through the word together.”

Jeremy went on to hold court about his religious beliefs in a way that’s very much in keeping with the Duggar brand:

“If you’re abiding in Christ and walking with Christ daily, I think it can look like sharing that and opening the lines of communication about your own walk with Christ,” he told the hosts.

“Where are you wrestling right now? How is scripture helping you? Just opening that communication and fellow shipping with your spouse and that’s gonna translate to your children.”

He concluded by sharing some thoughts on what he sees as the relationship between his religious beliefs and his duties as a husband and father:

“If you’re not spending the time in the work yourself, if you’re not disciplining yourself to walk with Christ in your devotional time,” he said.

“Then how do you expect to really pour into [your] family?”

Now, that may all seem perfectly innocent and perfectly in line with the Duggars’ message but there’s reason to believe that Jim Bob was less than thrilled about Jeremy’s latest interview.

You see, the podcast that Vuolo appeared on is called Calvinist Batman & Friends.

That may seem like an innocently dorky title, but it might have been enough to have JB buttoning up his angriest flannel and preparing for a very soft-spoken confrontation.

Much to his father-in-law’s chagrin, Jeremy is a Calvinist.

Jim Bob is decidedly not, and actually finds the belief system to be heretical.

Not surprisingly, this clash of beliefs has led to growing tension between Jim Bob and Jeremy.

But don’t worry, we’re sure it’ll all be resolved when the baby is born and Jeremy and Jinger raise it in such a way as to condemn its mortal soul to the fires of hell in Jim Bob’s eyes.

Jeremy Vuolo Drives Duggar Fans WILD With Tight Pants!

You have to see this “sexy” photo of Jeremy Vuolo that has Duggar fans losing their minds.

But you’ll need to decide for yourself whether he really looks as dreamy as they say …

… Or if all of this thirsting says more about Duggar fans than it does about Jinger’s husband.

Last winter, Jinger Duggar started wearing pants. The Duggars are famous for forcing their women to wear skirts, lest their sinful leg-shapes ensorcell a man to lustful thoughts.

It was with the permission of her lord husband (or whatever), Jeremy Vuolo.

In the particular vein of extreme Christian fundamentalist that runs (and ruins) the lives of the Duggars, women are the property of their fathers until they are married off, when their husbands take the reins.

And Jinger’s gone so far as to wear ripped jeans, sending Duggar fans into a state of shock.

Though the cold weather of Laredo, Texas has been brought up as an “excuse” for her devilish new wardrobe, Jeremy Vuolo’s theological beliefs are what allows it.

“Jesus does not save people to make them wear skirts,” he has stated in the past.

Of course, Jinger isn’t the only one who dresses for the weather in Laredo. And she’s clearly not the only one in her marriage wearing pants.

But it’s Jeremy Vuolo’s “tight” pants that seem to be driving Duggar fans into lustful fits.

Jeremy Vuolo definitely looks stylish here.

We don’t know that we’d call these pants anything similar to skinny jeans, but they look like they actually fit him.

A lot of Duggar men wear “dad jeans” that don’t fit so well or flatter the wearer.

(We guess that dressing in an appealing way is some kind of unforgivable sin — unlike Josh Duggar’s child molestation, which they seem to consider a forgivable slip-up)

While current temperatures in Laredo, Texas are in the 60s and 50s, which is hardly “cold” to most people who aren’t senior citizens and wouldn’t strike everyone as jacket weather, Jeremy looks all dressed for winter.

A normal response is “wow, this guy looks stylish,” possibly mixed in with “too bad he thinks that the Duggars aren’t anti-LGBT enough.”

Duggar fans, however, have been commenting under Jinger and Jeremy’s shared Instagram account (have we mentioned how weird joint marital accounts are? don’t do that, guys) and under this photo.

And they are heaping praise on “sexy” Mr. Vuolo.

The comments range from politely complimentary to thirstily direct. Take a look at some real comments that some real people wrote:

“Jinger got the best catch of all the married sisters.”

“Sexy man, I would I could find a husband like that.”

“That’s a Dapper Dan right there!!”

“Very dapper. Jing is a lucky lady.”

“Great photo of a handsome guy styled perfectly by his sweet wife!”

“Jeremy be stylin”

“Your husband looks like a model. You two are very handsome couple”

“Love the outfit so handsome”

“Your husband is hot”

“Your husband is such a stud”

“Love his style! It’s so classy and handsome! Wish this [were] the ‘norm’ again!”

We’re not sure what that last comment means — this is a normal outfit (for colder weather, anyway), not a throwback to the wardrobe of yesteryear.

But a lot of Duggar fans are the very specific sort of conservatives who like to wax nostalgic about an “idealized” past that never really existed.

We doubt that any of the Duggars set out to be fashion icons, but Jeremy Vuolo is looking stylish here.

That doesn’t mean that we share his values or think that he’s a good person. But hey, credit where credit is due. It’s a good look.

We would love to know what Jim Bob Duggar thinks of such a “flashy” outfit, though.

Jinger Duggar & Jeremy Vuolo Celebrate First Wedding Anniversary on Instagram!

It seems like just yesterday that we watched them say “I do,” but believe it or not, Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo have been married for one full year.

Sure, with a family the size of the Duggars, it sometimes feels that not a day goes by without a couple celebrating an anniversary, but Jinger and Jeremy are a special case. 

For one thing, they’re the first of Jinger’s generation to be married for an entire year without announcing a pregnancy.

And that’s not the only way in which Jinger and Jeremy have embraced their reputation as rebels.

Jeremy clashes with Jim Bob Duggar on a regular basis, and the two men have reportedly locked horns on issues as wide-ranging as religious doctrine and Jeremy’s decision to relocate to Laredo, Texas.

(Jinger is the first of her sisters to make a home for herself outside of her native Arkansas.)

For less conservative fans of the Duggar clan, Jinger and Jeremy represent a sliver of hope for a more moderate future.

Many who appreciate some of the Duggars’ values but struggle with the family’s more far-right views see Jinger and Jeremy as evidence that the Counting On clan might eventually be open to adopting an ideology that’s more in step with modern times.

 
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo Wedding Pic

It remains to be seen if that will happen, so for now, fans of the couple will just have to content themselves with the knowledge that the Vuolos are more in love today than on the morning they exchanged vows.

Jinger marked the occasion of their first anniversary by posting the above photo of herself with Jeremy.

“It’s been 1 year since the day we said “I do”…it’s been the best year of my life!” an ecstatic Jinger captioned the image.

“Jeremy, you have shown me such love that is too amazing for words. Whether we are talking, going on an adventure together, or simply doing everyday life together—I cherish every moment with you!

In true Duggar fashion, she concluded by praising Jeremy’s religious devotion:

“I love how you lead me in the Word and prayer. Your selflessness and sensitivity and care is remarkable. I love absolutely everything about you and couldn’t be more grateful to God for giving me the most incredible husband in the world! I love you, babe!”

Not to be outdone, Jeremy posted a loving tribute to Jinger on his Instagram page:

“To say she’s the woman of my dreams would not quite capture it seeing as, even in my dreams, I never could have imagined a woman so staggeringly beautiful, genuinely lovable, and sincerely Christlike as my dear Jinger,” Jeremy wrote.

“This year has been the best of my life. I love you, @jingervuolo, and always will.”

Needless to say, both parties brought their loving tribute A-game.

Guys, you may want to make sure your significant other doesn’t see these posts if you have an anniversary coming up.

Jinge and Jer have officially raised the bar.

Jinger Duggar Shocks Fans With Jeremy Vuolo PDA

Back in November of 2016, Jinger Duggar married Jeremy Vuolo in front of 1,500 of her closest friends and relatives.

Now, as they approach their one-year anniversary, the young couple is still going strong.

But while Jinger has developed into the same sort of doting wife as her mother and older sisters, she’s also undergone a number of other changes that no one in her family would have ever predicted.

These days, Jinger is known as her family’s resident rebel.

And while her acts of defiance may seem incredibly tame to those of us outside of Tontitown, Arkansas, within Jinger’s inner circle, there’s been much fretting and pearl-clutching over the 23-year-old’s apparent disinterest in following in the footsteps of the other women in her family.

Jinger’s most obvious form of rebellion has been the rejection of her family’s strict dress code.

Before Jinger got hitched, all of Jim Bob and Michelle’s daughters continued to wear below-the-knee skirts at all times (even while playing sports or engaging in other outdoor activities) even after leaving the house.

Jinger not only wears pants, she’s been known to rock shorts on occasion and short (by Duggar standards) skirts:

That’s a photo that Jinger uploaded on Instagram this week, and while her hemline might fall a little higher than her parents would like, it’s a much more subtle form of rebellion that has fans talking.

Jinger captioned the photo with lyrics from the 1965 song “L-O-V-E” by Nat King Cole:

“L is for the way you look at me O is for the only one I see V is very, very extraordinary E is even more than anyone that you adore can,” she wrote.

Sure, it’s not like Jinger is quoting Cardi B, but many longtime Duggar obsessives are still taken aback by her choice of song.

Why? Well, Jinger’s family generally eschews all forms of secular music.

Those familiar with the Duggars’ belief system say that non-religious music isn’t expressly forbidden, but note that young people are “strongly discouraged” to stick with hymns, and even Christian rock is considered potentially problematic.

“A song other then church music? Jinger u rebel!!” wrote one Instagram follower on Jinger’s photo.

“Gasp you’ve heard of this song?” commented another.

Like we said, Jinger’s not exactly scrawling Slayer lyrics on her walls in goat’s blood-red paint, but she’s still sending a message that the life she plans to live is not the one her parents mapped out for her.
