JINGER Duggar revealed she and husband Jeremy Vuolo are expecting their second daughter after suffering a miscarriage last fall.
Her announcement comes just moments after The Sun revealed Counting On fans suspected she was pregnant.
Jinger, 26, announced on Thursday that she and Jeremy are expecting their second daughter together.
The expecting mother told PEOPLE: "We are so excited. Felicity is going to have to have a sister.
"Everything looks great with the baby. We're so thankful. Had a lot of check-ups and we’re just really, really excited."
Despite being just one-year-old, Jinger explained that their daughter Felicity is already excited to be a sister.
"We told her, but she doesn't quite understand everything yet," Jinger revealed. "Not being 2 yet, but she, she comes up to my belly and says, ‘Baby. Baby.’"
Jinger – who is 15 weeks along – also revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage last year.
Jeremy recalled the tragic moment Jinger told him: "The morning after we announced to family that we were expecting, Jinger woke up and, woke me up very early in the morning, saying that she thought she lost the baby.
"We found out later that day that she had. That was very difficult and definitely a trial for us."
Jinger added that she found comfort in her faith after receiving the news: "In those times when your faith is tried, you just run to God all the more.
"We were just praying together talking with family, had friends at our church here that just surrounded us.
"It was such a hard time, but Jer just really supported me, and it was just such a tremendous blessing to have many people who loved on us in that difficulty."
The former professional soccer player, 32, also talked about how he felt after they discovered they were expecting a rainbow baby.
"Having that little one healthy in the womb, and growing strong, is so exciting," the father of one explained.
Fans will get to see more of Jinger and Jeremy as the upcoming season of Counting On will follow their lives in Los Angeles.
Just this morning, Jinger's fans were convinced that she was pregnant again since she had been hiding her growing belly in her most recent pictures.
Those pregnancy rumors had been swirling for Jinger since December 2019.
In Jinger's most recent Instagram photos, the mother of one had been suspiciously posing with her belly out of sight or with her back turned towards the camera.
In the last seven days, she posed twice with her back towards the camera and in another one, she hid against her husband's side as he flashed a smile for the camera.
Her latest poses haven't gone unnoticed by Redditers as they pointed out her curious poses.
When posed with the question of whether they thought the former Counting On star was pregnant, some fans quickly chimed in.
One fan wrote: "It's possible. It's the longest pause between pregnancies for a Duggar."
Some fans even claimed it was only because of the pose and said: "I think it may just be the angle. However, a Duggar pregnancy is never a surprise."
While another one agreed and responded: "My thoughts too. She doesn't really look it there but she has recently … either way, it won't surprise me."
However, one fan claimed that Jinger is indeed pregnant and wrote: "I definitely think she is because it seems like she has gained weight and I remember she recently used #heatlhypregnancy."
Back in early May, Jinger was criticized yet again by fans after she hid her alleged baby bump during a Q&A.
Fans of the 19 & Counting star who believe they are entitled to know if the mom-of-one is pregnant called on her to "stop hiding the baby bump" as she sat with her legs folded in an oversized blue shirt for the video with husband Jeremy Vuolo.
She had also previously sparked more rumors after she posted an Instagram picture with the hashtag "#healthyfitpregnancy" but then deleted it.
The couple moved over the summer 2019 so Jeremy could get an advanced master’s degree at a Seminary school in Panorama City, California.
Counting On star Jinger has been defying her parent’s expectations and strict dress code in recent months, taking to a salon to get her ears pierced for a second time.
Jinger, whose family lives in Arkansas, moved to Los Angeles with her husband after they spent two years living in Laredo, Texas.
