It’s been a big week for the Duggar family of TLC’s reality show “19 Kids and Counting.” First Jessa Duggar revealed she’s engaged to Ben Seewald and now Jill (Duggar) DIllard has revealed that she and husband Derick Dillard are expecting a baby.
“We’re having a baby. We are so excited,” Jill tells People.
Jill and Derick were just married back on June 21, sharing their first kiss once they were pronounced husband and wife. And now a mere two months later, there’s a baby on the way, which came as a bit of a surprise to the young couple.
“It was surreal. We were shocked,” says Derick. “Both of us are so excited.”
The couple told the Duggar clan about a month ago. Father Jim Bob says, “About 30 days after Jill and Derick got married they gathered
everyone in the living room and shared the news. Everyone was clapping and cheering, and we were in shock, too.”
Jill and Derick are due in March. “19 Kids and Counting” premieres its new season on Tuesday, Sept. 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on TLC.
