JINGER Duggar gave a big, cheerful smile in a sweet Christmas photo with her husband Jeremy Vuolo, despite the ongoing drama with her family.

After her brother Josh was found guilty of child pornography charges earlier this month, she and her husband slammed him as a “hypocrite” and “dishonorable.”

Putting all the Duggar family chaos behind them for a little while, Jinger and Jeremy enjoyed a festive day out together.

The pair got all dressed up in fancy attire and posed for a romantic picture together in front of Christmas trees.

Out and about in Los Angeles, Jinger, 27, wore a conservative, high-neck green dress, with its velvet fabric reaching down to her wrists and extending down to her calves.

She parted her hair slightly to the side and kept it clipped back, and capped off the holiday look by pairing maroon pumps to go with her green frock.

Smiling, she stood close to her husband and rested her left hand lightly on his suit-adorned chest.

For his part of the sweet photo, Jeremy, 34, wore a crisp, dark suit with a turtleneck underneath, and black dress shoes.

He gelled most of his hair to one side with a deep part and matched his wife with his big smile for the camera.

“Merry Christmas,” Jinger captioned the shot, along with an Xmas tree emoji.

Friends and family were happy to see the Counting On alums looking so happy, despite Josh’s scandal, and sent them love in the comments.

Family friend Carlin Bates wrote: “You look absolutely stunning. Merry CHRISTMAS!”

Carlin’s sister Alyssa Bates added her own, “Merry Christmas!”

Meanwhile, Little People, Big World star Audrey Roloff commented: “Oh heyyyy,” along with a fire emoji.

The celebratory Christmas photo comes just days after Josh was found guilty of both possessing and receiving child pornography.

Right after the verdict was revealed, the ex-reality star was ordered straight into custody.

After collecting their thoughts, Jinger and Jeremy shared a collective statement about the scandal on their respective Instagrams.

Sharing the couple's reaction following the verdict, the lengthy post began: "We are saddened for the victims of horrific child abuse. We are also saddened for Josh’s family, his wife and precious children.

"We are saddened for the dishonor this has brought upon Christ’s name. Josh claims to be a Christian. When a professing follower of Jesus is exposed as a hypocrite, the response of many will be to challenge the integrity of Jesus himself.

"They’ll question the legitimacy of a Savior whose so-called followers privately delight in the sins they publicly denounce. This is why the Apostle Paul told religious hypocrites that 'the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you' (Romans 2:24)."

"For Josh, we fear for his soul," the statement continued.

The couple added: "Yet, amidst our sadness, there is gratitude. We are grateful that God is a God of justice who cares for the innocent and the helpless. And, of all the people in this world, he especially loves children, who are among the most vulnerable.

"This reality makes the existence of sex trafficking and child abuse one of the most horrific evils imaginable. It is an evil God hates."

After sharing various bible verses, the pair concluded with: "We are thankful to God for exposing Josh’s actions and to a legal system committed to protecting the innocent and punishing the guilty in this case.

"We are grateful for justice. We are praying for further justice, vindication, protection, and healing for all those who have been wronged."

Jinger, along with her sisters Jessa, Jill, and Joy-Anna Duggar, recently hired a powerhouse Los Angeles attorney to represent them in their years-long lawsuit.

The former Counting On stars first filed their case against In Touch Weekly and local police agencies in 2017- two years after the media outlet reported that Josh was accused of molesting five minor girls in a leaked 2006 police report. 

In their initial lawsuit, the sisters sued In Touch's parent company, as well as various government agencies and law firms who assisted in the publication of the allegedly confidential police files.

Jessa and Jill publicly came forward to reveal they were among the alleged victims, and claimed the bombshell report caused them emotional distress.

Now, according to new court documents exclusively obtained by The Sun, the famous sisters have hired lawyer Hilary Potashner to join their legal team. 

One source close to the family told The Sun that Josh’s conviction on child pornography charges could impact the outcome in the sisters' case.

The source said: “They've been allowed to proceed on their case against the police department and a couple of police officers.

"That was supposed to go to trial the same week as Josh’s trial, but it got reset."
