For weeks now, we’ve been hearing rumors that Jinger Duggar is pregnant with her first child.
Part of the reason for the speculation is that Jinger has been married to Jeremy Vuolo for six full months, which means that by Duggar standards, the couple is well overdue for a pregnancy announcement.
But on top of that, Jinger has allegedly been a little sloppy in terms of hiding her forthcoming bundle of joy from fans.
For starters, several recent Instagram photos seem to show Jinger sporting a baby bump.
Adding fuel to the rumor fire is the fact that Jinger recently hinted at a big announcement, which many fans believe will be a confirmation that she’s expecting.
The Duggars are usually cagey with this sort of news, as they like to use major life events such as courtships, weddings, and pregnancies to draw viewers to their TLC reality show.
Since Counting On Season 4 is just around the corner, it makes sense that Jinger and Jeremy would hold off in order to use the increased interest in their lives to promote the show’s June 12 return.
Unfortunately for the young couple, keeping secrets in 2017 is no easy feat, and it seems they may have kept the news to themselves just a bit too long:
According to several media outlets, a baby shower registry created by the Vuolos and posted to the site Buy Buy Baby was discovered by fans on Monday.
The registry was either a hoax or there’s another Jinger Vuolo out there somewhere.
But since it was promptly deleted and there’s been no mention of it by the Duggars, we’re guessing it was the real deal.
In addition to the fact that Jinger is expecting, the registry revealed that her due date is December 16, and she’s expecting a baby girl!
No word on what sort of items the Vuolos requested, but now that the cat’s out of the bag, it’s a safe bet that they’ll be making their “big announcement” sooner than expected.
And of course, Jinger’s pregnancy will likely play a huge role in the highly anticipated fourth season of her family’s popular reality series.

Our premature congrats go out to Jinger and Jeremy!
