Counting On fans are so excited about the arrival of Jinger Duggar’s baby girl, that every word the couple writes on social media these days is proof for some that the baby is arriving sooner than expected. Over the weekend, Duggar’s husband, Jeremy Vuolo, posted a pic on Instagram of the couple showing off her big baby bump, and he captioned it “ETA: soon.” Does that mean the reality star is in labor?
In the photo, Duggar and Vuolo are standing next to each other and smiling while he touches her very pregnant belly. The mom-to-be looks as happy and comfortable as anyone can be who is nine months pregnant and living in the 100 plus degree Texas heat.
She is all smiles while wearing a black t-shirt and vest with her hair pulled into a side ponytail.
The couple has already announced that they are expecting a girl, and on the Grace Community Church website – where Vuolo is a pastor – his bio says the baby is due in July.
Fans left comments on the pic about how happy the couple looked and said that Duggar and Vuolo will be amazing parents. They are also excited about the couple having a baby girl.
Jinger will be the first of the Duggar sisters to have a daughter. Jill, Jessa, and Joy-Anna have all given birth to boys. Fans are also hoping that Jinger will have an easy delivery since her sisters have all had complications and ended up in the hospital after originally planning on home births.
Jinger’s sister Jill has two sons, and during both deliveries, she endured dozens of hours of labor at home before going to the hospital for emergency C-sections. Jessa also ended up in the hospital after giving birth at home because she ended up losing too much blood during delivery. And, Joy-Anna had to go to the hospital after hours of labor at home when they discovered her son was breech.
So far, it looks like Jinger’s pregnancy has been trouble-free, and she has posted frequent baby bump updates for fans on Instagram. And, in those posts, she is always comparing the size of her first baby to a fruit or a vegetable. Her most recent update came earlier this month at the 34-week mark, and she said the baby was the size of a cantaloupe.
It’s clear that baby Vuolo is almost here. Thanks to her frequent updates, we know that Jinger is now about 37 weeks along, which means we could have a new Duggar baby any day now.
Vuolo’s recent post about the baby coming soon didn’t mean his wife was in labor – even though some fans thought that was the case – but he simply meant they have reached the final countdown.
Watch Jinger Duggar and the rest of her famous family when the eighth season of Counting On premieres July 30th on TLC.
