Another Duggar is pregnant! Jinger Duggar and husband Jeremy Vuolo have just announced that they are expecting! Jinger and Jeremy were wed 14 months ago, in 2016. Since then, they have been enjoying their married life. Now, however, they get to enjoy a whole new adventure – parenthood.
While this is big news, the Duggar family has been anxiously waiting for the pair to conceive for a while.
Whether or not the two were pregnant was a hot topic on the last season of Counting On, the show Jinger Duggar shares with her sisters. Actually, in a July episode, Jinger was pretty upset that her sisters kept asking if she was expecting.
Well, now the Duggar sisters can stop asking and start planning for a new addition to their ever-growing extended family.
“Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning! Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: We are expecting our first child!” the couple told Us Weekly. “We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy.”
Jinger Duggar, like many of the Duggar women, has always expressed a desire to have her own big family, but what about her husband? Jeremy, a pastor and former soccer player, did mention his desire to have children back when the two were only just engaged.
“I really share Jinger’s love for children,” he said. “I definitely want to have children, but not sure how many.”
Does this mean that Jinger and Jeremy might not have a ridiculous amount of children like her parents? Could there be a Dugger with only a couple of kids? Well, while he didn’t specify how many kids he wanted, Jeremy did say that he would leave that up to God to decide. Nice cop-out there, man.
Jinger, of course is just happy that she and her husband are on the same page when it comes to kids. She told Us Weekly that Jeremy is an “answer to my prayers.” She notes that he is everything she asked God for in a spouse.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
