Counting On stars Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo welcomed their daughter Felicity Nicole on July 19th, and the couple celebrated her turning one-month-old this past week with some pics on Instagram. However, even though the photo was incredibly precious, some fans started commenting that Felicity didn’t look as healthy as they expected she should.
“Wow, she looks blue. Is she okay? Seriously. I am not trying to be critical or mean,” one fan commented. A second fan agreed, and wrote, “I was really alarmed when I saw this picture. She is purple, and that’s not normal. You are right to comment as you did. I hope they take her in and get her checked out.”
A third fan thought that Duggar and Vuolo should take Felicity to the eye doctor and have her eyes looked at because they had a son with a slight turn of the eye when he was born, and he ended up needing glasses as a baby.
However, even though some fans were concerned about Felicity’s health, there were others who came to Duggar’s defense and couldn’t figure out why people were picking the picture apart. One wrote that the comments were nothing but “scary, negative speculation,” and Felicity is simply beautiful. Another explained Felicity’s dark skin by reminding everyone that Vuolo is of Italian descent.
As OK! Magazine points out, when it comes to the parenting skills of any Duggar, the fans are always quick to comment, and some are ready to find faults wherever they can. Earlier this month, when Vuolo posted a pic of himself holding his daughter while taking an online class, fans came out in droves to warn him about Felicity being in front of a screen. And, in a photo of her in a car seat, some voiced concerns about the lean of Felicity’s neck.
There is no reason to think that Felicity isn’t happy and healthy and enjoying life with her parents.
In the latest episode of Counting On, we went back in time to November of last year when Duggar and Vuolo celebrated their first wedding anniversary. Vuolo ended up surprising his wife in a couple of different ways. First, when they got home from dinner, he covered her eyes as they walked into their house, and when she was finally able to take a look in their living room, she saw a black upright piano waiting for her.
The talented pianist was thrilled with the thoughtful gift, but that isn’t all Vuolo had up his sleeve. Waiting in the other room was Jinger’s mom and dad, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, along with some of her siblings.
The Vuolo’s live in Laredo, Texas, making Jinger Duggar the first sibling to relocate outside of Tontitown, Arkansas, permanently.
