Jinger Duggar Gives Birth To First Child With Husband Jeremy Vuolo

Jinger Vuolo — formerly known as Jinger Duggar — just became a mom!

People reports that Jinger delivered a baby girl, whom she named Felicity Nicole Vuolo, at 4:37 a.m on Thursday, July 19, 2018. Jinger and husband Jeremy Vuolo's daughter weighed 8 lbs. and 3 oz. at birth and measured 19.5 inches in length. "God is so kind," Jeremy shared in a statement to People magazine. "Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well."

He added, "We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!"

Jinger and Jeremy posted the same statement on their website, along with a photo of themselves with their newborn baby girl, who dons in a pink dress in the picture.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Jinger and Jeremy, who married in November 2016, announced that they were expecting their first child together in early January 2018. "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," they said at the time. "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!"

They continued, "We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy."

The couple later learned that they were expecting a daughter in April by having family and friends compete in a relay race (via People). After splitting loved ones into pink and blue teams, competitors had to each eat a single-serve container of ice cream and then run through an obstacle course. The captain of the winning team was then awarded the honor of flipping a switch on a neon light that read "Baby," revealing the sex with the color of the light. And, as if all that weren't enough, Jinger and Jeremy then sprayed guests with pink silly string.

They later shared in a statement to People, "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."

Congratulations to Jinger and Jeremy on the birth of their baby girl!
