Jeremy Vuolo has made a classic first-time father mistake.
Ahead of the birth of his very recent baby, the reality star forgot to catch up on his sleep.
The long-time TLC personality welcomed a daughter into the world alongside wife Jinger Duggar last week, as the couple made the very exciting announcement that Felicity Nicole Vuolo has arrived.
“God is so kind," Jeremy wrote online, adding of his baby’s name and her measurements:
"Jinger gave birth to Felicity Nicole Vuolo this morning at 4:37 a.m. Felicity weighs 8 lbs and 3 oz, and is 19.5 inches long."
As you can tell by the photo Jeremy and Jinger provided with this statement, their daughter is absolutely precious and perfect as well.
Wouldn’t you agree?
Well, perhaps she isn’t perfect.
Vuolo has posted his first pair of messages since becoming a parent and both point to the same parental hiccup that afflicts many young men and women:
A lack of sleep!
That darn newborn just keeps waking up hungry and said!
"To sleep, my dear friend and faithful companion. So long, it was a good run. Fondly, Jeremy," Vuolo wrote as a pretty humorous meme on Monday evening.
He then gave a shout-out to his new best friend:
"Dear coffee, it’s just you and me now. Don’t let me down. Gratefully, Jeremy."
Fans, of course, were quick to laugh along with Jeremy and also to assure him of two things:
- Sleep will come eventually.
- Being a father is still worthwhile, even if it means you can barely see straight half of every day.
In his baby announcement, Vuolo confirmed that "mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well," adding:
"We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”
The stars went public with Jinger’s pregnancy back in January, after 14 months after they became husband and wife.
This was actually a very long time for the couple to wait, at least by the standards of Jinger’s baby-crazy family.
In April, Jinger and Jeremy then told everyone that they were having a girl. Hooray!
"We 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," the couple stated.
Looking ahead, meanwhile, Jinger will be able to consult with various loved ones about what it’s like to have a baby around the house (and when the heck one finds time to sleep!).
After all, Joy-Anna Duggar welcomed a son named Gideon with husband Austin Forsyth in February of this year.
And then Kendra Caldwell gave birth to a son named Garrett David with husband Joseph Duggar on June 8.
As for when fans can get an inside look at Jinger’s journey to parenthood?
Counting On returns Monday, July 30 at 9/8c on TLC with new episodes.
