He exists! Anxious Counting On fans have patiently waited to catch a glimpse of Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell‘s son, Garrett, and after five long months, they finally got their wish. The famous family is notorious for posting photos of their (many) bundles of joy, but because the couple doesn’t have social media, we’ve only ever seen the tiny tot once from afar. Until now, that is! Watch the video above to see people’s reactions and the pic — thanks to Auntie Jinge! — and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
Perhaps the new mama doesn’t have an Instagram account because she’s afraid of being mom-shamed. The Duggar girls — and their husbands — have long been scrutinized for the way they parent their children. In fact, Jinger turned off the comments on her social media several times because the backlash was so intense. Whether it was regarding her daughters’ mittens, car seat, or headpieces, the 24-year old had had enough.
“Jinger has busybodies commenting on everything she does so it’s not a huge shock that she’s getting grief over Felicity’s head wrap but it still upsets her,” a Duggar family insider recently revealed to Hollywood Life. “She feels like she’s constantly getting mom shamed since she had Felicity. She had no idea it was going to be this bad. Jinger is doing her best to let ignore the negativity and focus on the positive, but it’s hard.”
Jinge’s big sis, Jill, also receives backlash on the reg. She, however, doesn’t seem to care as much about the haters. Like that time she literally put a tortilla on her son’s head for sun protection… Sigh. But I digress.
The point is, Garrett is no longer a figment of our imagination! And for that, we thank you, Jinger.
