With just hours to go until she is due to deliver her first baby, “19 Kids and Counting” star Jill Duggar has been spending time with her family. Ahead of her baby boy’s debut, Jill was photographed dining with her husband, Derick Dillard, and sisters Jana, 25, and Jinger, 21, at her Arkansas home Sunday.
The personal snap was shared by Jill’s brother-in-law Ben Seewald on his Instagram page. “Jessa and I are over at Jill and Derick’s with some of the family sharing a meal together!” Ben, who married Jill’s now 22-year-old sister Jessa in November, shared with fans. The TLC reality star hashtagged the intimate meal “#fellowship.”
While Jill, 23, has been spending with her adult siblings before she become a first-time mom -- she is reportedly due March 24 -- she hasn’t forgotten about the rest of her siblings. On Saturday, Jill shared an image of herself posing with her 7-year-old sister Jennifer. “I love my sweet little buddy, Jenni!” Jill captioned the image.
Despite Jill and Derick, 25, biding their time awaiting the arrival of their first child by spending time with their loved ones, that hasn’t stopped the couple from celebrating their romance milestones. On Saturday, Derick posted a sweet photo collage of Jill showing off her 39 week baby bump and himself sporting a t-shirt with the phrase “#newdad.” “Happy 9 monthiversary,” Derick captioned the photo which was direct towards Jill. “I am blessed beyond measure and every day is every better with you baby! You’re my best friend and I love you with all of my heart!”
While Jill and Derick’s baby has yet to arrive, the couple has already planned their newborn's first tour. The duo recently announced on their official Facebook fan page that they will bring “Baby Dilly” to the Alive Festival this summer. Jessa and Ben, as well as Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s oldest son Josh, and his pregnant wife Anna, are also included in the Christian event’s speaker lineup. The Alive Festival runs from June 17-20 in Mineral City, Ohio.
For “19 Kids and Counting” fans unable to attend the event, they can catch up with Jill, Derick, and the rest of the Duggar clan on TLC. New episodes of Season 9 of the hit reality series air Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EDT on the network. This week’s episode, “All About Jessa,” will recap the now-married Duggar’s life leading up to her highly-anticipated wedding episode. Prior to the installment, a sneak preview of Jessa and Ben's wedding will air on TLC at 8 p.m. EDT.
