Ever since Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo got married back in November, pregnancy rumors have surfaced at the rate of about five per week.
We guess you can’t blame Duggar fans for assuming the couple got right to “work.”
After all, Jim Bob and Michelle’s offspring are fobidden to engage in just about all forms of physical contact before marriage, and Duggar women are taught from a young age that they’ve been put on this planet to procreate.
So it’s unusual for a young Duggar couple to be married for nine months with no word of a bun in the oven.
But the consensus among fans is not that Jinger and Jeremy are holding off on starting a family … but that the couple is keeping their big news a secret so that they can hit fans with a major reveal on a very special episode of Counting On.
Of course, it’s 2017, an age in which the president can’t even stop himself from spilling his own secrets on social media, so needless to say, Jinge and Jer have trouble keeping anything about their lives under wraps.
There have been at least half a dozen Jinger baby bump sightings on social media, but thus far the news has not been confirmed.
Now, the Vuolos are inadvertently sending a different sort of hint, and the most hardcore Duggar fans have siezed on it as definitive proof that Jinger is expecting.
If you watched this week’s episode of Counting On, you know that Jinger and Jeremy recently purchased their first home.
Not an usual step for newlyweds to take, but in JinJer’s case there are some details that have piqued the interest of fans.
For one thing, the place has four bedrooms.
“One [room] is, of course, the master bedroom, then we have Jeremy’s study. One’s a guest bedroom and another one is full of boxes and old furniture we need to get rid of,” Jinger told the camera, carefully avoiding any mention of the other rooms being used as nurseries.
As The Ashley’s Reality Roundup points out, Jinger and Jeremy have broken with tradition, becoming the first Duggar couple to not live in a home owned by patriarch Jim Bob
The Vuolos began their lives as a married couple in a small apartment, and they’ve been open about the fact that they’re not exactly flush with cash.
(The Duggars reality show dough has to be split a lot of different ways, and few of the kids have real jobs.)
So it’s not hard to see why the recent upgrade to much larger digs has caught the interest of Jinger’s most devoted bump-watchers.
But again, we won’t find out what’s really going on until the Vuolos make their announcement in front of a TLC camera crew.
