The Duggar family is getting set to welcome another little addition to their family thanks to Jinger Duggar Vuolo and her husband Jeremy Vuolo.

The couple revealed that they are expecting their second child, a girl. The new baby will join older sister Felicity, who will turn 2 in July.

“We are so excited,” the Counting On star tells PEOPLE. “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.”

Jinger is the sixth eldest child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who have 19 kids in total. Jinger and Jeremy met while on a mission trip to Central America in 2015. They tied the knot in and welcomed their first daughter in July 2018. However, it hasn’t been an easy road for the couple when it comes to having children. As Jinger moves ahead with her new pregnancy, she also revealed to the outlet that she suffered a miscarriage late last year.

“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 said in the interview.  “We found out later that day that she had. That was very difficult and definitely a trial for us.”

“In those times when your faith is tried, you just run to God all the more,” Jinger added.”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 26-year old and her husband have been sharing their life on Instagram, including their activities during quarantine and spending quality time with family.

“A lot of people told me it would be good, but no one told me it would be this good,” Jeremy wrote alongside a photo of his young family.

Congratulations to  the happy couple.
