Jinger Duggar & Jeremy Vuolo ‘exhausted & hiring a nanny’ as they struggle with marital woes after second child’s birth

JINGER Duggar and husband Jeremy Vuolo are "hiring a nanny" amid their "marital issues" two months after welcoming their second daughter, a source has exclusively told The Sun.

The Counting On stars, who had baby Evangeline Jo back in November, are taking some time to work on their relationship during a "bump in the road," as previously revealed.

Now, a source has told The Sun they plan to hire a nanny to help care for their two children, Felicity, two, and Evangeline, as they're struggling amid the pandemic with no family nearby.

The insider said: "Jinger is especially exhausted, and Jeremy took time off work to help care for the children, but they are looking at hiring a nanny to give them some respite.

"Things have been difficult and they're feeling the strain, but they're doing everything they can to keep their family together, and also spend time focusing on each other.

"Jinger and Jeremy have started dressing up and cooking at home for a special date night after the girls go to bed, it's become a cute day for them to reconnect every few weeks."

Fans on social media previously pointed out how "tired" Jinger looked, and asked her husband Jeremy to step up more so she could have a break from mothering duties.

One wrote: "You look so tired Jinger. Daddy needs to watch the girls while you get needed sleep..XOXO."

Another added on Instagram: "Jinger take some time to rest. You look so tired. Take it easy."

The source added that although the pair paused their podcast to focus on their marriage, they will be recording again later in the year.

The TLC reality stars launched their Christian show in June last year, The Hope We Hold, and have grown their following - with hundreds of thousands of fans downloading more than 30 episodes.

"They are still very much in love and divorce is not on the cards, they just want to work through things and come out of this difficult period together and stronger as a family," the source previously told The Sun.

The insider added: "The podcast has been a huge success with hundreds of thousands of listeners, but they often have to get very personal and they want to deal with this time in private."

Jeremy, 33, has been receiving a lot of criticism from followers in recent months for the way he treats his wife while recording their podcast episodes, with many begging Jinger to leave him.

Fans have speculated for months the couple, who married in November 2016, may be having issues in their marriage.

One social media user claimed he is "constantly interrupting her."

Another wrote on Reddit: "I don't know what's worse, him sneering down at her or the fact that she lets it happen."

Sharing a photo of the couple doing their podcast, a third user also wrote: "Jinger looks so annoyed by Jerm. If y’all ever want to see the dynamic of their relationship, listen to one of their podcast episodes."

"She looks like she's questioning her whole life," a fourth remarked.

The pair are also considering quitting Counting On because of their "horrible" contract with TLC, a source previously told The Sun exclusively.

They have been on screen for years, with Jinger initially starring on 19 Kids and Counting - which followed her parents, Michelle and Jim Bob, and their huge brood.

She then began appearing on the TLC spin-off, Counting On, with Jeremy.

Asked if the rumors about them quitting the show are true, an insider told The Sun: "Yes. It's not definite yet, but they are having deep conversations about quitting.

"The contracts with the network are a bit crazy, they are very locked in and it stops them from making money in many other ways."

The Sun has contacted Jinger and Jeremy's rep for comment.
