Looks like the Duggar family just keeps growing! Jinger Duggar really broke away from the family when she decided to move away from her native Arkansas to Laredo, TX, where her husband, Jeremy, works as a pastor. But it looks like her move will be a little less lonely as she just shared news that her family is growing — check out the video to learn more!
Since getting married last November, Jinger and Jeremy have shocked their fans by waiting so long to get pregnant — considering her older, married sisters Jill and Jessa conceived within months of tying the knot. The quick turnaround to procreate shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans of Counting On, as the Duggars’ ultra-conservative views don’t allow contraception of any kind.
As the Duggar parents previously explained, they went on birth control after the birth of their oldest child, Josh, only to become pregnant. Shortly after finding out the pill failed them, they lost the baby — and they blamed the miscarriage on birth control.
“As conservative Christians, we believe every life is sacred — even the life of the unborn. Due to our lack of knowledge, we destroyed the previous life of our unborn child,” Michelle previously explained. “We prayed and studied the bible and found a host of references that told us God considered all children a gift, a blessing, and a reward. Yet we had considered having another child an inconvenience during that that busy time in our lives, [so] we had taken steps to prevent it from happening.”
In the past, Jeremy and Jinger have both made it clear that they have big plans for little ones. Before her wedding, she gushed, “Well, I love kids. I’m excited for the future, when Jeremy and I are married, to start a family.” We can’t wait to see what their future holds!
