Jinger Duggar Vuolo and husband, Jeremy cooked up a genius way to surprise the Duggar family with news of their pregnancy. Using a gingerbread house, the Counting On stars share the news in a new clip for Tuesday night’s episode.
In the delicious clip, the couple prepares a gingerbread house complete with figurines of themselves and a baby bump for Jinger, of course. It takes a moment for members of the Duggar clan to catch on, but you’ll want to see the moment when they finally put it together.
Watch as Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo surprise family with a custom gingerbread house.
“My mom’s reaction was priceless,” the expecting mom says in the clip. This is an understatement because it took quite some time for the family to catch onto the fact that Jinger’s figurine was meant to look pregnant. The couple, who were watching via video call, eagerly waited for the a-ha moment.
“Since mom wasn’t noticing right away, I took the pregnant gingerbread woman and got her closer and closer to the camera,” Jeremy explains.
Once the Duggar family finally realized what was going on, the exciting news was met with cheers of joy. This will be the couple’s second child. They gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo in 2018.
“We are so excited,” the mom-to-be says. “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.”
When the pregnancy announcement went public in late May, the couple revealed they would be expecting another baby girl. The happy news was also accompanied by a sad revelation for fans. The couple shared that their next baby would be a rainbow baby because Jinger had a miscarriage in 2019.
“On a Monday evening, Jer and I were rejoicing with our families as we announced that I was pregnant,” Jinger described her miscarriage on social media. “Yet, in God’s perfect timing, it was the next morning that I awoke knowing something wasn’t right. Within moments I knew that I’d lost the baby. Tears filled my eyes, sadness cloaked my soul. Having just lost my grandmother months before, the news of new life was like spring lilies blossoming after a dark, cold winter. And in a moment, that life was gone.”
“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,” Jeremy recalled, according to People. “We found out later that day that she had. That was very difficult and definitely a trial for us.”
“I’m excited! Yet, the overwhelming feelings of joy and anticipation that I’m feeling today are a sharp reminder of the overwhelming feelings of sadness and loss I felt last November,” Jinger shared on Instagram shortly after the announcement.

It was clearly a trying time for the couple, who only married in 2016. We are so thankful that they included their story to help humanize the experience of miscarriage. It’s such an important story to tell to help others feel less stigma around such a heartwrenching and personal loss.
“Having that little one healthy in the womb, and growing strong, is so exciting,” Jeremy says in the clip.
We’re happy and excited about this couple and their growing family. We are also thrilled with their gingerbread pregnancy announcement.
