Get ready for more Duggar babies. On Saturday, Jinger Duggar, the sixth child of former 19 Kids and Counting stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, married soccer player Jeremy Vuolo at the Cathedral of the Ozarks at John Brown University in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, just four months after announcing their engagement.
Now that Jinger is married, fans can expect two things to happen in the very near future— their wedding will be shown on an upcoming TV special and Jinger will announce that she is pregnant.
TLC has aired the weddings of all of the Duggar children so far, including Josh and Anna in 2008, Jill and Derick in 2014, and Jessa and Ben in November 2014, so it’s not surprising that the network will do the same for Jinger and Jeremy.
TLC will air the couple’s wedding special, Counting On: Jinger’s Wedding, on November 15, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
Once the wedding hoopla is over, it won’t be long before the newlyweds announce that they are expecting their first child. Well, that’s if Jinger follows in her sisters’ footsteps.
Over the past few years, fans of the Duggar family haven’t had to wait long for pregnancy announcements after both Jill, 25, and Jessa, 24, got married.
Jill, the fourth Duggar child, married Derick Dillard on June 21, 2014, and, less than two months later, she revealed to People magazine that she was pregnant. On April 6, Jill and Derick welcomed a son, Israel David, who was delivered via C-section.
Jessa, who is Jim Bob and Michelle’s fifth child, got engaged to Ben Seewald on August 15, 2014 and they were married on November 1 of the same year.
Less than three months later, Jessa announced that she was married and gave birth to the couple’s first child, Spurgeon, on November 5, 2015. According to Us Weekly, Jessa and Ben are expecting their second child in February 2017.
As for the newlyweds, Jinger and Jeremy, it appears that they are enjoying their first weekend as a married couple together —with no diapers to change just yet. On Saturday, they posted a message on their website, Jinger and Jeremy, shortly after they tied the knot.
“YES! We are married! We are so thankful to God, our parents and our wonderful families and friends for celebrating this day with us and for helping us arrive at this moment in time. We love that we now are beginning our lives together as one, before God.”
People reports that Jinger’s sister, Jessa Seewald, served as her maid of honor, and Jeremy’s brother, Charles, was best man when they married in front of 1,000 people on Saturday.
A source tells Us Weekly that Jinger’s father, Jim Bob, said it was the “most beautiful wedding he has ever seen,” complete with 2,000 handpicked flowers that spelled out the letter V.
The wedding reception didn’t include a formal dinner. Instead, Us reports that the 1,000 guests invited to the nuptials dined on meatballs, cheese, crackers and veggies, along with cupcakes for dessert.
Of course, those who are familiar with some of the rules that the Duggar family know that dancing is off-limits, so there was no first dance at the reception, a major bummer for any of the guests who enjoy busting out a few of their best dance moves when they go to a wedding.
Although there was no dancing, Jinger and Jeremy are finally able to stop the side hugging and move on to a full relationship that likely started with some wedding night fun behind closed doors.
Perhaps the result of their first night together will be revealed in a few months —after all, another Duggar baby wouldn’t come as a big surprise to anyone.
For now, Jinger and Jeremy are ecstatic that they are married, stating in a video on TLC, “It’s incredible to see us at this place when we’ve prayed about this for so long and we just longed for the day where we were married, and now God’s given us our heart’s desire and our prayer … he’s just so graciously given [this] to us.”
