Jinger Duggar fans have a reason to rejoice. The Counting On star has finally answered some big questions about her baby girl's birth, like why she and her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, chose the adorable moniker that they did for their first child and whether little Felicity was born at home.

During a recent interview with Us Weekly, Jinger said that being a mother is "incredible," and she and Jeremy just can't stop staring at their baby girl's face. Felicity Nicole Vuolo was born just six days ago on June 19, but Jinger said that she can already tell which parent the tiny tot takes after most. According to the new mom, the resemblance between Felicity and Jeremy is uncanny.

"You should see their baby pictures side-by-side," she said.

Jinger Duggar revealed that she and Jeremy Vuolo chose the name Felicity for their daughter because they immediately fell in love with it when they first thought of it months ago. She said that the meaning of Felicity is "intense happiness or supreme joy," adding that it's is also "the name of a young Christian girl long ago who valiantly stood strong for her faith." The girl Jinger is talking about might be a young martyr from Carthage whose story is recounted in a diary titled The Passion of Perpetua and Felicity. According to CNN, Felicity was a slave girl who was arrested with her mistress, Perpetua. The women were executed in 203 A.D. for being Christians after the Roman Emperor Septimius Severus banned citizens from converting to the religion.

Duggar fans can catch up with Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo when Counting On premieres Monday, July 30 at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
