It’s been three months since Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo got married, which means that by Duggar standards, they’re about two months and twenty-nine days overdue for a pregnancy announcement.
We kid, of course.
Modern Duggar women are permitted to enjoy married life for a while before they get knocked up – and by “a while,” we mean like 8 to 10 months.
So it should come as no surprise that Jinge and Jer are already speaking publicly about their plans to start a family.
The couple spoke with People magazine about married life in a recent interview, and of course, Jinger was asked about when we can expect her to be expecting.
After a honeymoon in Australia, the Vuolos have settled in Laredo, Texas, where Jeremy was living before he and Jinger met.
Not surprisingly (like Scientologists, Duggars aren’t allowed to express negative emotions), Jinger says they’re both loving married life, and she’s adjusted to her new city with ease.
“We have just so perfectly adapted, it’s been incredible,” she tells the magazine.
“The biggest blessing.”
Jinger is the first member of her family to permanently relocate outside of Arkansas, but she says she hasn’t found living so far from the Duggar compound to be as difficult as she’d imagined it would be.
“We FaceTime, and there’s always a family group message sharing what’s going on,” says Jinger, 23. “It’s been joyous.”
She adds that visits are just “a flight away.”
Jinger concedes that she misses her family, but also says that she’s made friends easily in Laredo.
“I’ve definitely connected with the ladies here, and they have been so gracious,” she tells People.
Of course, the big question on everyone’s mind is: when will Jinger get pregnant?
On that subject, the 23-year-old decided to play it a little coy:
“We are just enjoying our life together,” says Jinger, adding:
“We will see what the Lord does.”
Okay, so not a ton of new information, but the fact that she’s willing to discuss pregnancy (In promotional interviews like this, the questions are usually vetted in advance.) means the topic is very much on her mind.
We imagine the Duggar gals feel a lot of pressure to reproduce, what with coming from a family that’s famous almost exclusively for its fertility.
Not only is Jinger expected to pop out a baby ASAP, she’s expected to do so in the public eye.
That’s gotta put a bit of a damper on those heady early months of marriage.
