Surprise! The Duggars are heading down under, so get ready to book a plane ticket. The reality star family announced on their blog Thursday that Jim Bob, Michelle, and 14 of their 19 children will be making the nearly 10,000-mile trek from Arkansas to Australia in January for a meet-and-greet with fans. The event — which will be open to the public — will discuss “their thoughts on family life and homeschooling, followed by tea and fellowshipping.”
Last year, Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo went to Australia on their honeymoon following their November nuptials. At the time, Jeremy, 30, revealed to People what he was looking forward to most about their trip. “Can’t wait to experience the cultural foods!” he said. Jinger, 23, also said she couldn’t wait to taste the local food (and coffee!), but more than anything, she was “looking forward to seeing a kangaroo.”
Recently, Jinge — who has been dubbed the “rebel” child of the family — sparked rumors she was expecting baby No.1! Jeremy posted a sweet snap of his leading lady on Instagram — wearing a short skirt and heels! — and wrote, “Sugar and spice. Think about it.” Understandably, people immediately thought of the nursery rhyme, “What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice, and everything nice!” Is this a not-so-subtle hint that there’s a baby on the way?! Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Jinger’s older sister, Jill, appears to be following in her footsteps these days. Earlier this week, the mother-of-two was not only spotted rocking a pair of pants, but she also sported a nose piercing! Looks like the sisters have forgotten the strict Duggar family rules lately… and we’re here for it!
