“Counting On” stars Jinger Duggar, her husband Jeremy Vuolo and their one-year-old daughter had to spend Christmas without the rest of their family after making the decision to move to Los Angeles earlier this year.
But the couple luckily got some family time in for New Year’s when Jinger’s sister, Jessa, made a visit to the West Coast.
“Look who decided to surprise us with a visit during the holiday season!” Jinger captioned a photo of her and Jessa with each of them holding their children.
Fans were thrilled to see them together. “I’ve always thought you two were gorgeous! And your daughters are absolute dolls,” one wrote.
“You two and your babies are so beautiful. May the Lord bless you all. Happy New Year!” another said
The couple announced in a statement to PEOPLE in March that they were leaving Texas for California.
“In recent days, God has made it overwhelmingly clear to us that he is leading us out of Laredo. Through much prayer and counsel, the next step for our family is to relocate to Los Angeles to attend Grace Community Church as Jeremy pursues graduate studies at The Master’s Seminary,” the couple announced.
“As excited as we are to begin this new adventure, leaving Laredo this July will be one of the hardest things we’ve ever done; our friends here have become like family. Please pray for us as we open this new chapter of our lives.”
“This decision to move to L.A. came about as we were discussing the decision for me to pursue further theological training,” Jeremy said on camera during an October episode of “Counting On.”
“Life for us is always an adventure.”
“I’m really excited at the decision to move to L.A.,” Jinger shared. “I’ve always thought it would be neat to move to a big city, I love the hustle and bustle.”
Jessa has always been supportive of the move out west.
“I’m really excited for them with this move,” she said when the move was announced. “Jinger’s always loved the big city. Anytime we would take a family road trip and end up in Chicago or New York, she’s always like, ‘This is awesome! I’d love to love here one day!’ and the rest of us are like, ‘No I want to go back to the country.'”
