Pass her the ginger ale! 19 Kids and Counting star Jinger Duggar celebrated her 21st birthday on Sunday, Dec. 21, but there was little champagne involved as she reached the milestone.

Instead, she was honored with many tributes from her expansive family.

Happy golden birthday to my sweet sister Jinger! I love you so much!

Newly married to her husband Ben Seewald, the 22-year-old Jessa Duggar shared a cute smiling photo of her sister via Instagram, and wrote, "Happy golden birthday to my sweet sister Jinger! I love you so much!"

On the Duggar family's official Facebook page, they shared an image of Jinger posing with matriarch Michelle Duggar. The birthday girl grins as she holds a sign reading, "Happy 21st Birthday Jinger. We love you!"

"Today, December 21st is Jinger's 21st birthday," the TLC stars captioned the shot. "We are so thankful for her love for Jesus and her sweet personality. She is precious to us in every way!"

Jim Bob, Michelle, and their brood also shared an adorable baby photo of the now-21-year-old star. "Cute little Jinger!" they wrote via Facebook. "Can't believe she's all grown up… Today we're celebrating her 21st birthday! Such a beautiful young lady– inside and out!"

Jessa and Jill Duggar's little sister is now legally of age to drink alcohol, but in the strict Independent Baptist family, no alcoholic beverages are allowed at any age. The two now-married older sisters told Us Weekly earlier this year that they accidentally drank spiked punch at an event but called it "disgusting."

"We've never like intentionally been to a party where we know there's going to be a lot of drinking," Jill, 23, added to Cosmopolitan earlier this year. "I've been on the fire department for a few years, and there's people, young people, 18-year-old girls who have died of an OD. You see the effects, and it really makes you stop and think of the consequences for some of these actions."
