“God is so kind. Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m.,” Vuolo tells Us. “Felicity weighs 8 lbs and 3 oz, and is 19.5 inches long. Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well. We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”
The Counting On star, 24, revealed the baby’s gender in April 2018 in a sweet statement posted on the Duggar family’s website as well as the couple’s site that read, “We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this Summer. We especially love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love – Jeremy and Jinger.”
Pregnancy came with its own surprises in addition to Duggar experiencing a bout of morning sickness. The reality TV personality revealed to Us in March, “I do think probably what surprised me most is just being so tired all the time. I was never a napper, like having to take a nap, and now it’s like, ‘Ooh! I think I want to nap every day!’”
Luckily, Duggar was able to lean on her husband, 30, during the trying moments. “Jeremy also jumped in and he was there. He got me takeout food a lot because I did not want to step foot in the kitchen,” she told Us. “It made me nauseous, so he did that for that reason and that was very, very good.”
Us Weekly exclusively revealed in January that the happy couple — who married in November 2016 — were expecting. Their child will be in good company: Duggar’s sister Joy-Anna welcomed son Gideon with husband Austin Forsyth in February of this year and their sister-in-law Kendra gave birth to son Garrett David with husband Joseph Duggar on June 8.
TLC’s Counting On returns Monday, July 30, at 9 p.m. ET.
