Dad had a feeling! Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo became first-time parents back in July when they welcomed their baby girl Felicity Nicole, and they have been loving every second of parenthood so far. But in a recently surfaced clip from Counting On, daddy Jer revealed that he alway kind of knew that they would be having a little girl.
“I suspected that we were having a girl. At first I started out thinking that it was a boy, but then I had a few old wives’ tales that told this this was going to be a girl and I believed them — and they were right,” the 31-year-old said in the TLC clip.
“There are so many things that are exciting about just thinking about having a little girl. I definitely am thinking about hair bows, styling of the hair, fun accessories,” Jinger, 24, added. And that’s definitely what she’s been doing! Baby Felicity is always wearing the cutest outfits and hair accessories in the cute pictures that her mama posts on Instagram.
But Jeremy wasn’t the only one who was paying attention to old wives’ tales! Fans couldn’t help but guess the gender of their little one as soon as her pregnancy was announced. Back in March, fans speculated she was having a little girl based on the size of her nose.
“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!”
