The former reality star turned 28 on 23 December in Pennsylvania where she was joined by her husband Jeremy Vuolo and their two daughters Felicity and Evangline Jo for a special Christmas getaway. But on Thursday she shared an adorable snap of her enjoying a Starbucks coffee, and thanked the pair, writing: "My sisters know me so well."

"Love and miss you so much, Jinger!" commented Jana, 31, to which Jinger replied: "@janamduggar love and miss you too."

Jana, 29-year-old Jessa and Jinger, along with 30-year-old Jill, are the eldest four daughters of 19 children welcomed by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, and the four were leaders of the buddy system which pairs older siblings with younger siblings to help with childcare.

Jill’s group included Joy-Anna, Jenni, and James, while Jessa took care of Jordyn, Jeremiah, and Justin.

Jinger was responsible for Jedidiah and Johanna before leaving the nest, and Jana looked after Jackson, Jason, and youngest sibling Josie, who was born in 2009. The four eldest sons were not asked to be buddies.

Jinger's post comes three weeks after the Duggar's eldest brother Josh was found guilty of being in receipt of child pornography.

A jury spent around four hours deliberating before coming back with their verdict on Josh's trial.

The father-of-seven now awaits sentencing; he could be facing 20 years in prison with fines up to $250,000.

A day later it emerged that in September 2021 Jana had pleaded not guilty after being charged with a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child.

Jana later took to social media to share that she had been "babysitting a few months ago when one of the children wandered outside alone" and "a passerby who saw the child called the police".

"This resulted in a written citation as well as a follow up with child welfare who concluded that it was an accident and the child was unharmed," she shared with fans on social media, adding: "It all happened so quickly and was scary."
