Turn around, Jinger Duggar! The Counting On star faced away from the camera in a new snap her (hot AF) hubby, Jeremy Vuolo, posted on Instagram. Earlier this week, the pastor wrote, “Baptism—one of the greatest joys and privileges of ministry.” Sorry, Jer — but we just want to see a glimpse of that baby bump! Watch the video below to see the photo.
Last month, the reality star couple revealed they were expecting baby No. 1. “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. “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!” They continued, “We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy.”
Prior to getting pregnant, however, fans wondered if Jinge had trouble conceiving and whether fertility issues were to blame for her delayed pregnancy. Fans flooded the comments section of Jinger and Jeremy’s pregnancy announcement on Instagram, and many of them congratulated the couple on waiting before starting a family. But other fans came to Jinger’s defense, pointing out that it’s rude to bring up her delayed pregnancy since no one knows if she had trouble getting pregnant.
“The ridiculous pressure they have faced, and will undoubtedly continue to face, to have children cannot have been all that pleasant. What if they have trouble conceiving, or didn’t want kids? Do you know how awful it is to be constantly questioned about when you’ll have kids? I do. But that’s really no one’s business but mine… and in this case, theirs,” one fan wrote. Another added, “You don’t know why she didn’t get pregnant right away, whether it was by choice or they were having trouble for some reason or if she’s had miscarriages. Please think about that kind of comment for any pregnant woman, because some women actually want to get pregnant right away and it can be hurtful when you congratulate them for a timeline they didn’t plan on.”
The sixth eldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar — who is known for breaking the religious family’s style rules — is not the only Duggar sibling expecting. Her sister Joy-Anna Duggar is currently pregnant with her first child, and her brother Joseph Duggar is also expecting a bundle of joy with wife Kendra Caldwell.
While Jinger comes from a big family, Jeremy is not sure just how many kids he wants to have with his wife. “I love kids. I really share Jinger’s love for children,” he said in 2016. “I definitely want to have children, but not sure how many. We’ll have to see what the Lord provides.” Congrats to the happy couple!
