There's Another Duggar on the Way
Derick and Jill Dillard
Another day, another Duggar.
Jill Dillard (nee Duggar), 23, is expecting her first child with her new husband Derick, 25, TLC announced Wednesday.
Jill, one of the titular “kids” on TLC’s reality show 19 Kids and Counting, wed Derick on June 21 and is due in March. She must have inherited her mother Michelle‘s fertility gene, as she and Derick only met in person for the first time last May (after three months of video chatting) and allege that they didn’t progress past holding hands until their wedding day.
Dillard took several pregnancy tests that came back negative, but got a plus sign when she took one of the tests her mother keeps at home, according to People, which first reported the news. “About 30 days after Jill and Derick got married, they gathered everyone in the living room and shared the news,” Dillard’s father Jim Bob told People. “We were in shock too.”
The new season of 19 Kids and Counting, which will feature Jill and Derick’s wedding and plans for parenthood, premieres Tuesday, Sept. 2 at 9/8c on TLC.
