You blinked, and now another Duggar sibling is pregnant. Jinger Duggar and husband, Jeremy Vuolo, announced earlier today that they are pregnant with their first child, further adding to the Duggar clan. The couple shared a teaser to their big news on Instagram today, with the caption, "We’ve got a bit of exciting news to share with you!"
“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 tells 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!”
The couple added, “We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy.”
Duggar, 24, and Vuolo, 30, were engaged in early 2016 and tied the knot later that year. The couple celebrated their first anniversary in early November by sharing sweet love notes to one another via Instagram.
"It’s been 1 year since the day we said 'I do'...it’s been the best year of my life," Duggar wrote in her caption. "Jeremy, you have shown me such love that is too amazing for words. Whether we are talking, going on an adventure together, or simply doing everyday life together—I cherish every moment with you!"
However, the two explained that they aren't necessarily looking to have as large a family as Jinger's.
“I love kids,” former soccer player Vuolo told Us Weekly at the time of their engagement. “I really share Jinger’s love for children. I definitely want to have children, but not sure how many. We’ll have to see what the Lord provides.”
