Counting On stars Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are parents again! The couple’s family grew by one more on Sunday evening. They have welcomed their daughter, Evangeline Jo, to their family. She joins her two-year-old sister, Felicity Nicole.
The couple shared their exciting news exclusively with TODAY Parents. At the time of publication, Jinger and Jeremy had not yet shared about the news via social media. But, it’s only a matter of time before the couple shares their announcement with the world. They are very active on social media and share frequent photos of their family.
Jinger and Jeremy told TODAY Parents that Evangeline was born “quickly and safely” on Sunday. Jeremy told the news outlet, “We’ve got good news! Jinger is recovering very well, enjoying finally being able to hold her little angel.”
They add, “As for Felicity, she is in love with her little sister but has no idea how much sharing is in her future. We are so grateful to God for this beautiful gift!”
As TV Shows Ace reports, Jinger ate a salad that was supposed to speed up labor.
In the past, Jinger has talked about being excited to have two daughters. She said, “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.”
The couple chose the name Evangeline because it means “good news.” Her middle name is Jo because Jeremy’s middle name is Joseph. Evangeline weighs 7 pounds and is healthy.
Jinger Duggar previously miscarried
Prior to getting pregnant with Evangeline, Jinger had a miscarriage. This was hard on the couple, but they are happy to have their “rainbow baby” in their arms. A rainbow baby is a baby born after a loss.
They first shared about the loss when they announced Jinger’s pregnancy with Evangeline. They were open about how difficult that time was for them. The couple calls the miscarriage a trial. But, throughout it all, they have talked about how important it is to trust in God.
So, what do you think of the new baby’s name? Are you happy to hear that she’s here and she’s healthy? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
