Viewers of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" Tuesday night were disappointed to learn that Anna and Josh Duggar are not expecting baby no. 4, but their spirits were lifted when parents-of-19 Michelle and Jim Bob’s newly married daughter, Jill, shared an update on her pregnancy. After the premiere of the Season 8 episode “A Reveal to Remember," Jill and her husband Derick Dillard, showed off the first photos of their baby to viewers.
With Jill already into her fifth month of pregnancy with her first child, a boy, fans were able to see the baby, which TLC has dubbed “Baby Dilly,” for the first time via photos from the latest ultrasound. Jill, 23, and her 25-year-old accountant husband gushed over several of the ultrasound pictures in the clip, which showed the child's feet, profile, “teeny” toes and even his anatomy. “He’s a boy,” Jill joked.
After the couple displayed one photo of their child sleeping with his hand by his face, Derick shared his belief that their child already takes after his wife. “He’s sleeping like mom sleeps,” he said.
Unlike when she first announced her pregnancy, Jill said she is no longer experiencing morning sickness. “Jill’s feeling great right now,” Derick confirmed. “We are super-excited to start our family and happy to have y’all along for the ride,” Jill added.
Jill and Derick’s Springdale, Arkansas, wedding was featured on “19 Kids and Counting” last month. One week ahead of the episode’s premiere, the newlyweds announced their baby's gender to People magazine. The couple first confirmed they were expecting in August, just two months after their June 21 nuptials.
Jill is the second Duggar child to welcome a baby and the first daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle's to tie the knot. Her brother Josh, 26, has three children, Mackynzie, 5, Michael, 3, and Marcus, 1, with his wife Anna.
“19 Kids and Counting” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
