Last week, Counting On stars Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo welcomed their first child – a baby girl they named Felicity Nicole –, and during his first week of fatherhood, Vuolo has noticed some major changes in his life. The new dad shared some hilarious updates on Instagram recently, and for many, they were all too real and relatable.
In the first post, Vuolo wrote, “To sleep, my dear friend and faithful companion. So long, it was a good run. Fondly, Jeremy.” He then followed that up with, “Dear coffee, it’s just you and me now. Don’t let me down. Gratefully, Jeremy.”
Fans are enjoying Vuolo’s honesty, and many have sent messages of support. One wrote that it gets easier after the first few weeks, and another said that Vuolo’s comments were “brilliant,” and he was keeping it real by sharing the experience of sleep deprivation with a new baby.
According to In Touch Weekly, Duggar gave birth to Felicity at 4:37 a.m. on July 19th and the sweet baby girl was 19.5 inches long and weighed in at eight pounds and three ounces. Vuolo said that both mom and baby are healthy and doing well, and he and his wife are thankful that Felicity arrived safely. He added that they are both looking forward to living life as parents.
Fans and family members are super excited that baby Felicity has finally arrived. Many have sent messages of congratulations, including Jinger’s older sisters Jill and Jessa. Jill congratulated the new parents on social media by writing that she was excited about the arrival of her niece. And Jessa wrote that Jinger and Jeremy have come a long way since getting married back in November of 2016, and she can’t wait to see them make new memories.
Since Jinger has been so busy with her new daughter, she hasn’t posted much on Instagram in the last week. But, she did take a few seconds to send the message, “Dear sweet girl, Welcome to the world. – Mom.”
Fans definitely approve of baby Vuolo’s name. Felicity means “happiness,” and comes from the Latin word Felicitas, meaning “luck” or “good fortune.”
