Counting On stars Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo showed off their sweet daughter, Felicity Nicole, in a new video this week, and the newborn was too cute for words. In the one-minute clip, Felicity yawned while her parents gushed about their little girl, and fans can’t get enough of the newest Counting On star.
Jinger gave birth to Felicity on July 19th at 4:37 a.m., and there is significant meaning behind the name.
“We named our baby Felicity Nicole,” Duggar said, and then Vuolo added, “We went with Nicole because that’s Jinger’s middle name and a way to honor her, and Felicity really describes supreme joy and the joy that we have in this little one, and the joy we pray she would have throughout life.”
Duggar and Vuolo appear to be adjusting to parenthood pretty well, and apparently, Vuolo already has given himself a nickname. Last week, brother-in-law Ben Seewald told fans on Twitter that Vuolo is now “Meconium Man,” and added the hashtags #DaddySuperhero and ##DiaperDuty, along with a LOL. We will give you a minute to Google that term. Prepare yourself.
When Felicity arrived, she weighed in at eight pounds and three ounces and was 19.5 inches long. The new parents announced her arrival in a statement that read, in part, that they were thankful for her safe arrival, and they also looked forward to living life as parents.
Just like when she was pregnant and gave regular baby bump updates, Jinger has been relatively active on social media since she gave birth. She captioned her first mommy post, “Dear sweet girl, Welcome to the world. ~ Mom.” And, Vuolo has been updating fans on his lack of sleep and constant need for coffee.
Duggar’s family members have also been posting messages on social media about baby Felicity. Jill Duggar wrote a note of congratulations to her sister and brother-in-law and added that she was excited for them. And Jessa Duggar wrote on Instagram that she was overjoyed for Jinger and Jeremy because of their little girl’s arrival, and she knows they will be great parents.
Fans are also loving the baby’s name, and many have posted messages of congratulations. Felicity means “happiness,” and is from the Latin word “felicitas” which means good fortune or luck.
