Surprise! Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are moving to Los Angeles. The Counting On couple revealed the exciting news in a blog post on Monday, March 25.

“In recent days, God has made it overwhelmingly clear to us that he is leading us out of Laredo,” the TLC stars wrote on their website. “Through much prayer and counsel, the next step for our family is to relocate to Los Angeles to attend Grace Community Church as Jeremy pursues graduate studies at The Master’s Seminary. As excited as we are to begin this new adventure, leaving Laredo this July will be one of the hardest things we’ve ever done; our friends here have become like family. Please pray for us as we open this new chapter of our lives.”

It may be quite a culture shock for the 25-year-old mama, who grew up in Tontitown, Arkansas before moving to Laredo, Texas with her man. “This is going to be my first time living in a big city, and I’m really excited,” she gushed. Jer added, “We’ll be sharing a lot of new experiences with you all of our little family. Maybe taking Felicity to the beach for the first time and exploring the sites and sounds of Los Angeles.”

Jinge gave birth to their (seriously adorable) baby girl on July 19. “God is so kind. Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m.,” the couple confirmed to Us Weekly on July 19. “Felicity weighs eight pounds and three ounces, and is 19.5 inches long. Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well. We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”

In a video posted on July 30, Jinger revealed the meaning behind her sweet name. “We named our baby Felicity Nicole,” she explained on July 30. “We went with Nicole because that’s Jinger’s middle name and a way to honor her,” Jeremy added, “and Felicity really describes supreme joy and the joy that we have in this little one, and the joy we pray she would have throughout life.” So darn cute!

Of course, this move means they’ll have to leave behind their adorably renovated home. That said, as long as they have each other, we’re sure they’ll be A-OK. (Cheesy but true, y’all). Good luck out there, fam!
