Over the past few weeks, Jinger Duggar has shared numerous updates about the size of her impending baby.
At 20 weeks, it was akin to an artichoke. At 22 weeks, a bell pepper. At 25 weeks, a cauliflower.
But the reality star has now taken a break from comparing her fetus to various kinds of food items and instead shared a different sort of tidbit about the child...
... it's gender!
Indeed, following months of anticipation by Duggar family fans ever since Jinger and Jeremy Vuolvo announced they were expecting in January, we finally know exactly what they are expecting.
So, which will it be? A boy or a girl?!?!?
Cue a drumroll in your head and scroll immediately down for the answer.
The baby will be a...
According to People Magazine, Jinger and Jeremy revealed this piece of news in exciting and unusual fashion:
They set up a relay race in Laredo, Texas and asked it to be completed by friends and family members.
Wait, what? Huh?!? We can explain:
The couple split their loved ones into a pink team and a blue team.
One by one, an individual on each team had to eat a single serve container of ice cream prior to running the obstacle course.
The captain of the first team to finish the race then had the honor of flipping the switch on a “Baby” neon light, revealing the gender, while Jinger and Jeremy sprayed everyone with pink silly string.
That's, ummm, different.
"We are so happy to announce that we are having a little baby girl!” the TLC personality tell People, adding:
“We could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting our little lady this summer.
"We especially love thinking forward and realizing that she will have excellent role models in both of her grandmothers, who cannot wait to shower her with love."
Instagram followers last week thought that Jinger was set to welcome a boy because she wrote the word "baby" in blue on a chalkboard, as you can see below.
Alas, it will be the complete opposite of a boy. Surprise!
Jinger and Jeremy told the world early on this year that they were expecting their first child together, about 14 months after getting married.
This is what they said at the time:
The past fourteen months have been the best of our lives as we have had the wonderful privilege of beginning our journey through life together in marriage.
We both looked forward to the joys of marriage but neither one of us fully understood just how amazing the start of this journey would be. Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning!
Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: we are expecting our first child!
We are praising God for this beautiful gift and ask that you join us in praying for a safe and healthy pregnancy
Psalm 139:13-14 13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
In an earlier video for TLC, Jinger and Jeremy had said they'd be "happy either way," whether the kid was male or female.
This, of course, is the right attitude.
All that really matters in the end, after all, is that they keep the kid away from Josh Duggar.
Far, far, far, FAR away,
