Duggar Family Expecting Another Grandchild After Jinger Announces Pregnancy With Husband Jeremy

In 2008, TLC premiered a show called 17 Kids and Counting, which followed the Duggar family’s expanding brood.

Patriarch Jim Bob Duggar and matriarch Michelle Duggar are devout Independent Baptists. Early in their marriage, they decided to let God determine how many children they would have.

Within a few years of the show’s beginning, its title changed to 19 Kids and Counting. In total, Michelle and Jim Bob have 19 children, ranging in age from 8 to 29.

The children all have “J” names: Josh, Jana, John-David, Jill, Jessa, Jinger, Joseph, Josiah, Joy-Anna, Jedidiah, Jeremiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johanna, Jennifer, Jordan-Grace, and Josie.

Jim Bob and Michelle also have nine grandchildren, and they are already expecting three more in 2018.

Jinger, the sixth of the 19 children, just announced her pregnancy with husband Jeremy Vuolo, and the two couldn’t be happier. They revealed the big news on January 3, 2018, and are expecting their little one sometime this summer.

On November 5, 2016, Jinger Nicole Duggar and Jeremy Joseph Vuolo tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in Arkansas.

The two honeymooned in Australia, then moved to Texas together.

Everyone — family included — assumed that Jeremy and Jinger would immediately get pregnant, but months went by, and there was no announcement.

The family got caught up in other courtships and engagements, but nobody forgot to keep questioning Jinger about whether or not she was pregnant.

Now, finally, after over a year of marriage, the Vuolos are expecting a baby!

Jinger and Jeremy announced on January 3, 2018, that they were officially parents-to-be.

They shared the following thoughts on their personal 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.

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.

Jinger and Jeremy have always said they wanted kids (although maybe not as many as Michelle!), and everyone is thrilled that they have a baby coming their way.

As soon as the announcement hit social media, fans started sending their congratulations to the couple.

Two other Duggar grandbabies are in the works as well!

Joy-Anna and her husband, Austin Forsyth, announced their pregnancy on August 30, 2017, just three months after their May wedding.

Joseph and his wife, Kendra, tied the knot in September 2017, and announced Kendra’s pregnancy two months later, on December 18, 2017!

It’s easy to see why everyone thought Jinger and Jeremy would make this announcement earlier than they did.

Michelle and Jim Bob must be absolutely thrilled that they’re adding one more Duggar baby to the world.

Congratulations, Jeremy and Jinger!
