Jinger Duggar reveals the two people who made her cry after giving birth

Jinger Vuolo (nee Duggar) cried in the delivery room — but it had nothing to do with painful contractions. The Counting On star was overcome with emotion on July 19 when she watched her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, hold their daughter, Felicity, for the very first time.

“The moment I saw Felicity in Jeremy’s arms, I melted,” the 24-year-old exclusively tells Us Weekly in the new issue. “She is blessed to have such a remarkable father.”

The TLC personality gushes that the 30-year-old former soccer player knew exactly what she needed during the exhausting labor. “He was right there beside me the entire time, giving me encouraging words to press on,” Jinger reveals. “There were several times I told him, ‘It hurts so bad, I can’t do it anymore.’ And he’s say, ‘I know it hurts, but you’re stronger.’ I could not have asked for a better partner.”

Jinger and Jeremy welcomed their 8 pound, 3 ounce, baby girl at 4:37 a.m. in San Antonio, Texas. “It’s been so incredible,” Jinger tells Us about life at home with Felicity. “We can’t stop staring at her adorable little face.”

While Jeremy has been waking up for those late-night feedings — he tweeted a funny farewell to sleep —Jinger has also been getting a helping hand from sister Jessa Seewald and momMichelle Duggar. (Both are pros in the parenting department, Jessa has two kids, while Michelle has 20!) Raves Jinger: “I have been so thankful to have so much great help around me, giving me time to rest and recover.”

Counting On premieres on TLC Monday, July 30, at 9 p.m.

Sugar and spice. Think about it.
Spending time with family is priceless. There are some things money can’t buy....even on Black Friday 😉
Guess what I’m thankful for? Hint: think “spices”
So deeply thankful for this wonderful couple.
To say she’s the woman of my dreams would not quite capture it seeing as, even in my dreams, I️ never could have imagined a woman so staggeringly beautiful, genuinely lovable, and sincerely Christlike as my dear Jinger. This year has been the best of my life. I️ love you, @jingervuolo, and always will.
I prayed for many years that the Lord would give me a godly woman who loved Him genuinely and others selflessly. He answered, but with a gift far beyond anything I ever asked for or could have imagined. He is kind.
I love you more than I have ever found a way to say to you.
Girl on fire.
