Jinger Duggar shared a message about faith and the future with her 1.3 million Instagram followers on Thursday and it had her fans suggesting it included a big hint about what she and husband Jeremy Vuolo might name their second child.
Jinger began her post with a single word and she placed emphasis on it by writing it in all caps with a space between each letter. The word was “Hope,” and the Counting On star used it in regards to the current state of the world, which she described as “dark days of turmoil.” She wrote that hope is an “anchor” for Christians who are uncertain about the future.
Her post included a photo of herself, Jeremy, and the couple’s 1-year-old daughter, Felicity, going for a walk outside. Jinger wore a sleeveless blue-and-white pinstriped blouse with a pair of white skinny jeans and had her wavy blond hair pulled back in a low ponytail. Jeremy was dressed in a white t-shirt and dark blue shorts, while Felicity rocked a pale pink sleeveless top, a white floral-print skirt, and a pair of pale blue canvas sneakers. She was standing between her parents and holding their hands as the group strolled down a sidewalk.
Many of Jinger’s Instagram followers commented on how much they loved the sweet family photo, but Jinger’s decision to highlight the word “Hope” also got her fans talking. Many agreed it would make an excellent moniker for the little girl that Jinger and Jeremy are expecting.
“Hope would be a pretty name for your daughter,” one fan remarked.
“That would be a fantastic name for your little miracle from God… Hope, it’s so pretty,” wrote another admirer.
“‘Hope’ sounds like a great name for a little girl,” read a third comment.

H O P E It’s our solid confidence in who God is and what he has promised. And, in these dark days of turmoil, it’s the only anchor our souls have…it’s the only anchor they need. “We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf…” (Hebrews 6:19-20) I can guess you, like so many others have been feeling uncertain about what our future could hold. What would choosing hope look like for you, today, right here in this moment?
If Jinger and Jeremy were to name their daughter Hope, they could potentially follow in the footsteps of Jinger’s parents by giving all of their children names with a specific theme. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar chose a letter theme for their big brood, giving Jinger and all of her 18 siblings names that start with the letter “J.” If Jinger named her second daughter Hope, the little girl would have a virtue name, just like her older sister Felicity.
Last month, the couple announced they’re expecting a baby girl. Jinger revealed that her due date was this fall and she was “excited” to meet the newest addition to her family. When she shared her happy news with her fans, she also spoke about the tragic miscarriage that she suffered last year. Her heartbreak and her pregnancy journey will likely be the focus of future episodes of Counting On when it returns to TLC on June 30.
