Newly blonde Jinger Duggar is noticed with husband and daughter at Los Angeles mega church
She is the ‘rebellious’ Duggar, the first woman in her family to wear pants, who once revealed that she dreamed of leaving her small hometown of Tontitown, Arkansas, for the big city, and now she lives a Southern California lifestyle.
A freshly blond Jinger, 25, was spotted with husband Jeremy Vuolo, 31, and their almost one-year-old daughter Felicity in a mega-church in Sun Valley, California, a suburb of Los Angeles on Saturday.
An eyewitness told DailyMailTV, “They were a little late and went to the pastor’s office for a meeting outside the church. When they came out, Jeremy was chatting with another parishioner before going upstairs with his wife to a Sunday school class.
“She was a light tan and you could see some spots showing where she’d dyed her hair from dark brown to blonde.”

Jeremy, a former professional soccer player, is currently enrolled in the Grace Community Church Masters program after three years as a minister in Laredo
The couple moved from Arkansas, where the 19 Kids and Counting family lives to Laredo, Texas, and then the West Coast last month

Jeremy, a former professional soccer player, is currently enrolled in the Grace Community Church Masters degree after serving three years as Minister in Laredo, Texas.
The couple met in 2015 on a mission trip to South America and were married in November 2016 at the Ozark Cathedral in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, in front of nearly 1,000 guests.
After selling their four-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Laredo last month, the couple embarked on a 1,400-mile road trip to Los Angeles. The TLC cameras documented every moment for their reality show Counting On.
They have seen not one earthquake but two since moving into their Los Angeles area rental home.
Commenting on Jinger’s Instagram, a fan said, “Wondering if you felt the 7.1 quake last night?”
She replied, “Yes, we definitely felt the earthquake. Our whole house was shaking! ‘
The young mother was seen sipping a drink from a mug as she pushed her daughter Felicity’s stroller

Last month, before moving to Instagram, Jinger revealed her new blonde balayage hairstyle
The Vuolos rubbed a bit of celebrity arm too.
On July 5, they posed with Back To The Future actress Claudia Wells, who played Marty McFly’s friend Jennifer Parker, while she was shopping at her high-end men’s clothing resale Armani Wells in Studio City, California.
Some fans scratched their heads about how Jinger would even recognize the actress since she grew up in the strict Duggar household that banned television and movies from her 19 children.
“I love how Jeremy introduced you to pop culture!” Fans commented.
They also enjoyed local area restaurants, professional soccer games, and Jeremy recently joined an adult soccer league with Jinger and Felicity cheering him on from the sidelines.
All that SoCal fun comes at the same time Jinger’s younger sister Joy Anna, 21, revealed her heartbreaking loss to daughter Anabelle Elise 20 weeks after her second pregnancy.
The Vuolos have also rubbed their arms a bit since they moved, and on Friday Jinger posed for a photo with actress Claudia Wells, who played Jennifer Parker in Back to the Future
Jinger is the sixth child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, the strict Christian patriarchs of 19 Kids And Counting, the show that spurred the Counting On spin-off.
TLC had to cancel the original reality show in 2015 when it was revealed that Duggar’s eldest son Josh, 31, molested four of his sisters and a family friend as a teenager.
Instead, the network focused on the oldest daughters (Jill, Jessa, Jinger, and now Joy) and their married life.
Jinger becomes the first Duggar girl to step away from family and friends to start a new life with her husband, rather than under the watchful eye of her parents.
On the Vuolo blog, Jinger wrote: “In the past few days, God has made it clear to us by an overwhelming majority that He is leading us out of Laredo. As excited as we are to begin and go on this new adventure [Laredo] July is going to be one of the hardest things we’ve ever done; Our friends here have become like family. Please pray for us as we turn to this new chapter in our lives. ‘
“You can say that she is thriving here,” says our source, “they both make friends and she becomes her own person outside the Duggar compound.”
