On Saturday (February 17), Jinger Duggar, who is expecting her first child with husband Jeremy Vuolo, showed a glimpse of her growing baby bump to her fans in an Instagram photo. The 24- year-old was seen wearing a dark gray dress that flaunted her pregnancy curves as she posed in front of a blackboard.

She captioned the picture as, "Update on Baby Vuolo." On the other hand, the blackboard hinted people on how big the baby has become. "18 weeks," it read. "Baby is the side of a bell pepper." The couple had made the announcement about their pregnancy last month. 

In an interview with US Weekly, the two confessed that things have been exceptionally good since the time they found out that they are soon going to become a family of three. "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 in the interview. 

"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!"

The two married in November 2016 in a romantic ceremony in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, just 18 months after they met. The couple had always shared their joy about being parents and in an interview which took place in 2016, the two confessed that they were looking forward to becoming parents one day. 

"I love kids. I really share Jinger’s love for children," Jeremy said in the interview. When asked about how many children's they would love to have, the couple failed to think of a particular number. "I definitely want to have children, but not sure how many," he added. "We’ll have to see what the Lord provides."
