Jinger Duggar is getting closer and closer to welcoming her first child with husband Jeremy Vuolo.
The Counting On star has shared an update with fans on her pregnancy, and she's currently 22 weeks along.
Jinger, 24, posted an Instagram photo of herself wearing a tight black T-shirt with her long brown hair curled on Monday.
Jinger is standing next to a chalkboard in the photo that reads, "22 weeks" and "Baby is the size of a... papaya."
Jinger first announced her pregnancy in January and has been sharing baby-bump photos every two or three weeks since.
Jinger has compared her little bundle of joy to the size of fruits and vegetables. At 15 weeks, she said her baby was the size of an apple, and at 18 weeks, he or she had grown to be the size of a bell pepper. At 20 weeks, her child was the size of an artichoke.
She and Jeremy said in a January statement that getting married and starting their lives together was a "wonderful privilege" and neither of them had fathomed just how amazing the journey would be.
The couple does not know whether they have a little boy or girl on the way yet, but Jeremy, 30, said in a recent TLC video he hopes the child will be just like his wife.
"I am praying that the baby will look like, act like, talk like, be like Jinger, and so I've asked everyone else to pray as well," Jeremy said in a video. "I was a little terror as a child, so I'm hoping that the little one will be as much like Jinger as possible."
Jinger married Jeremy, a former soccer player, in early November 2016 and decided to take his last name. They wed in Siloam Springs, AR, in front of approximately 1,000 family and friends.
Jinger is one of Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar's 19 kids. She is the sixth eldest child and has been anticipating motherhood since her July 2016 engagement.
Jinger and Jeremy met in May 2015 through his friend and now brother-in-law Ben Seewald. Jeremy popped the question just one month after the lovebirds had announced their courtship.
Counting On currently airs Monday nights at 9PM ET/PT on TLC.
