Even though the toddler doesn’t “fully [understand] what’s going on,” she is “obsessed” with her younger cousin, Jessa Duggar’s 14-month-old daughter, Ivy.

“Felicity loves her,” Jinger tells Us of her newest niece. “She talks about her constantly. … It’s sweet to see. Even though family lives far away, she still knows who her cousins are.”

The 19 Kids and Counting alum and Vuolo announced in May that baby No. 2 is on the way. “We are so excited to announce that we’re expecting a little girl this November,” Jinger wrote via Instagram at the time. “Jeremy and I both guessed it was a girl, just a gut feeling we had. And we couldn’t be happier. The bond that sisters share is unique, and one I cherish every day. After all these years, they’re still my best friends! I’m glad God’s giving that gift for Felicity to enjoy.”

The Arkansas native suffered a miscarriage ahead of her pregnancy news, she revealed at the time. “[Joy-Anna Duggar and I] grew closer,” Jinger tells Us of the pregnancy loss. “We were already close, but that relationship even deepened all the more having been through the same thing. [It] was very difficult, but I was grateful for Joy to be able to talk to her.”
