Counting On stars Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo have revealed that they are expecting baby number two. The couple announced the news on their respective Instagram accounts on Thursday, and the parents of 22-month-old Felicity also revealed that they are having another daughter.
“We are so excited to announce that we’re expecting a little girl this November!💕 Jeremy and I both guessed it was a girl, just a gut feeling we had. And we couldn’t be happier,” wrote Duggar in the caption of a pic that featured the 26-year-old showing off her baby bump.

We are so excited to announce that we’re expecting a little girl this November!💕 Jeremy and I both guessed it was a girl, just a gut feeling we had. And we couldn’t be happier. The bond that sisters share is unique, and one I cherish every day. After all these years, they’re still my best friends! I’m glad God’s giving that gift for Felicity to enjoy. As for me and Jeremy, we’ll definitely have our hands full! But there’s nothing else we’d rather carry 🤗❤️
Duggar added that sisterhood is a unique bond, and it’s one that she cherishes every day. She explained that her eight sisters are still her best friends, and she is glad that God is giving Felicity that gift for her to enjoy.
She finished up her post by writing that she and Vuolo will definitely have their hands full, but there is nothing else they would rather carry.
Duggar told People magazine that she and Vuolo are “really, really excited” that Felicity will have a sister, and everything looks great with the baby. She said that they were thankful, and they have already had a lot of check ups.
Duggar and Vuolo tied the knot in November 2016, but they waited more than a year-and-a-half to welcome Felicity. All of Duggar’s married siblings have announced pregnancies during their first year of marriage, but Jinger does things her own way.
She and Vuolo welcomed Felicity in July 2018, and Duggar says that the toddler is getting excited about being a big sister.

And then there were four… Felicity’s recruited a little sister to join her squad! Recently, she’s been practicing her big-sistering on dolls, cradling and shushing them to sleep. Pretty soon, she’ll be holding a real baby. But she’s ready, and so are we. Life is beautiful! We are praising God for this precious little gift.
“We told her, but she doesn’t quite understand everything yet,” explained Duggar. “Not being two yet, but she, she comes up to my belly and says, ‘Baby. Baby.’”
Duggar is currently 15 weeks along, and she and Vuolo say that the baby girl is healthy and growing strong. Vuolo says that is an exciting thing to know because he and Duggar suffered a miscarriage last fall. He described the difficult experience as a “trial” for the couple, and Jinger added that when their faith is tried they run to God more.
Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo’s new life in Los Angeles with Felicity – and the emotional ups and downs of losing a pregnancy – will be part of the new season of Counting On, which premieres on TLC on June 30.
