If you’re a fan of her family, then by now, you’ve probably heard the news that Jinger Duggar is pregnant with her first child.
You probably also know that when it come to starting a family, Jinger has opted for a decidedly different approach than the one taken by her sisters.
Many believed that Jinger would continue to buck tradition by keeping a low profile during her pregnancy.
Now that the big news has been confirmed, however, Jinger has been eagerly updating fans every step of the way.
Jinger’s baby bump photos are highly anticipated by her Instagram followers these days, and the mom-to-be seems happy to give the people what they want.
Here’s the latest straight from the source:
Yes, Jinger is already 22 weeks along.
Her baby is roughly the size of a papaya, and frankly, we can’t help but wonder why Jinger couldn’t have used some less esoteric analogous produce.
Isn’t a papaya roughly the same size as, say, an avocado?
Plus, millions of New Yorkers probably think Jinger is trying to say her baby is the size of a hot dog.
(We kid. The Duggars are popular across several demographics, but we’re guessing they’re not particularly huge in Manhattan.)
But while Jinger has been happy to keep fans up to speed on the baby’s development, there are certain details that she and Jeremy seem intent on keeping to themselves.
Yes, the baby’s gender remains a mystery, and the Duggar faithful are very keen on finding out whether Jinger is having a boy roa girl.
Thus far, none of Jinger’s sisters have delivered daughters.
Josh Duggar has given his parents granddaughters, but boys currently out-number girls in the next generation of Duggars by a very wide margin.
It’s unclear if Jinger is keeping the gender to herself for privacy reasons, or if she’s chosen to be surprised on the day of delivery.
Whatever the case, the mystery has piqued the interest of fans:
“Will you two announce the gender?” one of Jinger’s followers asked this week.
“I’m hoping you have a girl!” commented another.
“It’s a boy, look at the blue ‘baby,'” remarked one amateur sleuth.
Needless to say, it doesn’t look as though the speculation will be letting up any time soon – and the Duggars probably wouldn’t have it any other way.
