They totally had us fooled! For months we've been convinced that Jinger (Duggar) and Jeremy Vuolo were expecting a baby boy, but they revealed to People magazine on Monday that they're going to have a daughter this July. 

  • "We are so happy to announce that we are having a little baby girl!" the couple excitedly shared.

    Jinge and Jer exclusively reveled to People, "We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this summer. We especially love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love.”

  • Jinger shared a new bump photo and pregnancy update over the weekend, with fans still convinced she was having a boy.

    In every blackboard pregnancy update she's shared since 18 weeks, she's written the word "baby" in blue. What else were we supposed to think? Besides, the family has had a plethora of boys born lately. Jill (Duggar) Dillard, Jessa (Duggar) Seewald, and Josh Duggar's wife Anna all gave birth to baby boys in 2017, and Joy-Anna (Duggar) Forsyth welcomed a little boy in February. Joseph Duggar's wife Kendra is also expecting a boy in a few short months. Let's just say this little gal was quite unexpected!

  • The couple reportedly announced the exciting news to friends and family on Saturday, at their home in Laredo, Texas.

    According to the magazine, Jinger and Jeremy set up a relay race for their loved ones, which involved each member of two teams (team pink and team blue, of course) chowing down a single serve container of ice cream before running an obstacle course. The team captain of the winning team flipped a switch on a neon sign saying "baby," lighting it up bright pink, while the expectant parents sprayed everyone with pink silly string.

  • We can totally see Jinger and Jer with a little girl.

    We're sure they would have been amazing parents to a son (and probably will be someday, in all likelihood), but we can totally picture these two with a daughter. Jinger has always been super girly, and Jeremy just seems like the kind of dad who is going to be wrapped around that gal's little finger in about two seconds flat.

    He even said shortly after they announced that they were expecting, "I am praying that the baby will look like, act like, talk like, be like Jinger, and so I’ve asked everyone else to pray as well ... I was a little terror as a child, so I'm hoping that the little one will be as much like Jinger as possible."

    Congrats again to Jinger and Jeremy! We can't wait to meet your baby girl this summer.
