Unsurprisingly, Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard are expecting their second child


Shocking absolutely no one, one of the Duggar ladies is knocked up again. This time it’s Jill Duggar-Dillard, who married Derick Dillard back in 2014. Jill and Derick welcomed son Israel just about nine months after getting married, no surprise. But Jill’s pregnancy was difficult, and she had to be hospitalized for the birth, which was not part of her birth plan. Jill has trained as a midwife, and all of the Duggars believe in natural childbirth and all of that. I think Jill’s difficult labor sort of put her off baby-making for a while, because it’s taken more than a year and a half for her to get pregnant again.

There’s more news on the Duggar family front! Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, announced that they’re expecting baby No. 2 on Tuesday, December 20 — and the couple couldn’t be more thrilled about their growing brood!

“We are so excited to be expecting Dillard baby #2!” Jill and Derick told People magazine. “Children really are a wonderful blessing from God. Having Israel has been such a delight to us that we know a second sweet baby will only continue to add joy to our family. We are thankful to God for this sweet child and we cannot wait to see her or him face to face!”

Duggar, 25, and Dillard, 27, spent almost a year living in Central America, where they moved to do long-term missionary work, and returned to the U.S. in August. The couple already have one child together, son Israel David, 20 months.

Dillard and the 19 Kids and Counting star famously tied the knot in June 2014, which was also when they exchanged their first kiss. Both were adamant about getting started on a family right away.

Jill and Derick have their controversies of course, like the fact that their “missionary work” seems more like a church-financed vacation scam, but all in all… they are not the most controversial people in the family. I actually find Jill to be rather likeable and sympathetic, even more so than Jessa. Jill at least worked for a living as a nurse/midwife and Derick has held real jobs too. Now, does this mean that Jill and Derick are going to be able to financially support their growing brood? Who knows?

Here are two recent pictures of Jessica…one is from her Instagram account and one from Twitter. Both presumably from newest Weight Watcher ad.
