It's a girl! Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are currently expecting their first child together, and they just revealed they're having a daughter. The Counting On couple shared the exciting news earlier this afternoon.
"We are so happy to announce that we are having a little baby girl!" the couple told People. "We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this summer. We especially 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 news comes just days after the 24-year-old received backlash for the size of her bump. "Jinger doesn't even look pregnant here...??" one person wrote. Another added, "As cute as it is, Jinger doesn't look pregnant here." Harsh!
Of course, fans couldn't help but guess the gender of their little one as soon as her pregnancy was announced. Last month, fans speculated she was having a little girl based on the size of her nose. Yeah... Seriously. "Have y'all ever heard the wives tale that when a woman is pregnant, if her nose gets wider, she's having a girl? Not making fun of Jinger AT ALL. She's gorgeous. Just wondering." In response someone wrote, "I know mine did. Maybe it's not so much the nose but the facial swelling." Hmm — apparently, there was some truth to that!
Back in January, the duo announced they were expecting. "The past 14 months have been the best of our lives as we have had the wonderful privilege of beginning our journey through life together in marriage," the couple told Us Weekly__ at the time. "We both looked forward to the joys of marriage but neither one of us fully understood just how amazing the start of this journey would be. Truly, the Lord's mercies are new every morning! Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: We are expecting our first child!" Congrats Jing and Jer — we can't wait to meet your daughter!
