Jinger Duggar Confirms What We Already Knew

Jinger Duggar is considered the most rebellious member of the family. Since her days on 19 Kids and Counting, Jinger has noticeably strayed from the family's normal practices.

She enjoyed photography as a hobby, which may not seem that weird, but when the rest of your family is focused on music, the Bible, and raising your siblings, it's definitely out of the norm.

Not long after marrying Jeremy Vuolo, Jinger floored fans when she began wearing pants on the regular, a huge no-no for Duggar women. Vuolo came to his wife's defense fairly quickly.

"Jesus does not save people to make them wear skirts. It is your liberty as to whether you dress modestly with a modest pair of pants, or with a skirt, or with a T-shirt, or with a blouse," Vuolo said. "It is not your liberty, women, to wear sensual, seductive clothing that is designed to draw the attention of your brothers."

Jinger was also the only Duggar who was married with no children. This was unusual, as Jill, Jessa, and Joy-Anna all announced their pregnancies within 3 months of their wedding. However an Instagram post from a few months back lead many to believe she and Vuolo were expecting their first child.

Sugar and spice. Think about it.

No official announcement was made, but now, the couple is making things official.

Speaking with US Weekly, Jinger and Jeremy confirmed that they are expecting their first child!

"The past 14 months have been the best of our lives as we have had the wonderful privilege of beginning our journey through life together in marriage,” the couple said. “We both looked forward to the joys of marriage but neither one of us fully understood just how amazing the start of this journey would be. Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning! Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: We are expecting our first child! We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy.”

Jinger, 23, and Jeremy, 30, spoke in the past about their desire to wait to start a family, with both of them stating they just want to enjoy being newlyweds. But over a year after their marriage, it seems like now is as good a time as any to have kids!

If you look closely, you'll notice that the couple is wearing the same clothes in their pregnancy announcement as their suspicious Instagram post! Looks like they've been giving us hints this whole time!

Congratulations to the happy couple!
