Following their exciting announcement, the parents-to-be continually updated Counting On fans on all things baby, even giving their followers a peek at the baby shower that was hosted by their friends. The two shared that they "were overwhelmed by the kindness and thoughtful generosity of everyone."

The baby shower also gave the couple the opportunity to announce to their closest family and friends that they were expecting a "little lady", who they "could not be more excited and are eagerly anticipating meeting."

"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."

And Jinger's parents are just as excited to see baby Felicity grow up, "They will be amazing parents and will raise her in the ways of the Lord!"

Congratulations to the happy parents!
