Pregnant Jinger Duggar opens up about how she's preparing for her first baby

Baby time! Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are just getting started when it comes to getting ready for their first baby. The Counting On star opens up in the new issue of Us Weekly about how she’s feeling, the family members who are helping her prep for the baby and how she and Jeremy are so excited to be parents.

“At this point we haven’t done too much prep,” Jinger admits. “Now that I’m halfway through my pregnancy, we haven’t really collected anything. A friend of ours had some stuff they were getting rid of, so that was really nice because they were able to give us baby swings and things like that that we needed, but we haven’t started on anything as far as prep for the baby.”

While they might not have everything they need yet, they’re feeling more thrilled than ever to be expecting. “Jeremy is so happy. He’s just so excited that he’s gonna be a dad at this point. He’s just really, really excited either way, whatever the baby is, he’s just so thrilled to be a dad,” she says.

As for how she’s feeling, Jinger explains to Us, “I’m trying to just enjoy the pregnancy and I know that when that baby comes I’m going to be super excited to see it.”

She continues, “It’s just been so sweet with me and Jeremy. He just gets so excited when he thinks about us having a baby and last night he could feel the baby kicking for the first time and he was just thrilled. He was like, ‘This is amazing. I can actually feel the baby.'”
