Vuolo, Party of 3

Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo welcomed Felicity Nicole Vuolo on Thursday, and we just can't get over what a beautiful family the three of them make. The new arrival shares her mommy's middle name, and her first name, Felicity, means happiness.

Felicity makes a total of twelve Duggar grandchildren. Nine are boys, and three are girls. How perfect that No. 12 arrived just in time for Jim Bob and Michelle's 34th wedding anniversary!

Duggars Celebrate 34 Years

The past month-and-a-half have been extremely busy for the Duggar family. Since the beginning of June, they have celebrated seven birthdays (Marcus Duggar, Michael Duggar, Anna Duggar, James Duggar, Samuel Dillard, Meredith Duggar, and Jim Bob Duggar), welcomed two grandchildren (Garrett David Duggar and Felicity Nicole Vuolo), and pulled off a wedding (Josiah and Lauren Duggar).

To top it all off, today is Jim Bob and Michelle's 34th wedding anniversary. Last year, they took a trip to Kauai, Hawaii. With all of the festivities that have taken place this summer, they might just want to celebrate with some relaxation.

Happy anniversary to the Duggar matriarch and patriarch!

Baby Vuolo is Here!


The third Duggar granddaughter has arrived, safe and sound, right around her due date!

Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo welcomed Felicity Nicole Vuolo yesterday, July 19th, 2018, at 4:37am. Just one day after Jim Bob's birthday. She weighed in at 8lbs, 3oz and was 19.5 inches long. As they say in the video below, the new parents are thankful for a healthy pregnancy, and they are grateful for a safe delivery, as well. Visit their website to see the Vuolos' first photos as a family of three.

Josiah and Lauren's Vows


Yesterday, we provided instructions for watching a preview of Lauren and Josiah's wedding. Today, we want to share the couple's wedding vows, which they wrote. 

I, Lauren, take you, Josiah Matthew Duggar, to be my husband. Before God, our family, and friends gathered here today, I commit to be your helpmeet, your cheerleader, your lover, your best friend, and your closest confidant. If God chooses to bless us with children, I will join with you as a team to raise them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Within his help, I will be there for you in sickness and in health, in time of little or in time of much, and through sorrow and joy until death do us part. My heart's desire is that as a team we would display Christ and use our marriage to demonstrate the Gospel to the world. I am so grateful God has blessed me with you as my life partner. I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you, honey. I love you.

I, Josiah, take you, Lauren Milagro Swanson, to be my wife. Before God and these witnesses, I vow to be your lifelong friend, provider, protector, and be faithful unto you until death do us part. I promise to love and cherish you, even as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it. If God chooses to bless us with children, I will join with you as a team to raise them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. I promise to be by your side in sickness and health, in time of little, in time of much, through sorrow and joy. My prayer is that we will work better together than apart and everything we will do be to God's glory and honor. I love you, Lauren.

Watch Lauren and Josiah's Wedding NOW

Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson have been married since June 30th, and it's finally time to get a sneak peek at their wedding.

Josiah--eight in his family lineup--and Lauren--the oldest of nine, including an infant brother--have known each other since childhood. But they didn't become serious friends until around the time of Joe and Kendra's September 2017 wedding. They were friends for a few months, followed by a six-week courtship and a four-month engagement.

Lauren's father, Dwain Swanson, is officiating the wedding. "I have so much emotions wrapped up into this moment," he shares just before seeing his daughter in her wedding dress. "It seems like a lifetime of years from the day that she was born up to this very minute that I'm about to see her. I know she's beautiful. I know that it's going to be sweet."

The mother of the groom and mother of the bride walk in together with Josiah, each wearing stylish, pink gowns that are knee-length. For protection, Lauren and Josiah decide to have Josiah keep the rings in his pocket, rather than trust someone else with them.
After exchanging vows and rings, Josiah and Lauren are prayed over by their parents. The first kiss is long and beautiful, and then Josiah grabs a beaming Lauren in his arms and runs out of the sanctuary.

The links to the two-part preview are below, as well as a link to a new gallery of wedding photos.
