How many times are we going to have to count? Jinger Duggar of Counting On gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, yesterday with husband Jeremy Vuolo, and has already shared her name and a photo of her with fans.
"God is so kind!" the couple wrote on their website yesterday, alongside a photo of their little one. "Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 am. Felicity weighs 8 lbs. and 3 oz. and is 19.5 inches long. Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well. We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!"
Duggar and Vuolo announced that they were expecting their first child together in early January with a post on their joint website. “The past fourteen months have been the best of our lives as we have had the wonderful privilege of beginning our journey through life together in marriage,” penned the pair. “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.
We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy.”
Then, in early April, the couple announced via a very elaborate gender reveal party (one that included obstacle courses, team competitions, and lots of pink silly string) that they were expecting a baby girl.
“We are so happy to announce that we are having a little baby girl!” they told People at the time. “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.”
Congrats to the new parents! We're sure it won't be long now until the next Duggar pregnancy announcement.
