Baby Dilly was feeling the love this weekend! Star can exclusively report that Jill Duggar was feted at her official baby shower on Saturday, March 1, just weeks before her son’s expected March 24 due date.
The reality star’s shower was hosted by Debbie Query and Venessa Giron from A Mommy’s Butterfly Midwifery, where Jill worked for a few years as an assistant mid-wife before she began courting her now-husband, Derick Dillard. All guests were instructed to wear blue in honor of the 19 Kids and Counting star’s unborn baby boy, and Jill, herself, showed up in a royal blue cardigan sweater with a ribbon that boasted “BOY.”
Approximately 60 guests celebrated with the couple, and with plenty of babies in attendance, Derick got some real-life dad practice, even admitting to the group that he’d never changed a diaper before!
Meanwhile, Jill’s sister, Jana, kept track of gifts for future thank you notes. “Jill and Derick got a mix of really practical things for the baby, and then some beautiful handmade toys and outfits,” a source from the party tells Star. “This baby will not have a shortage of things to play with or wear, that’s for sure!”
Last month, Derick’s Walmart coworkers also threw the duo a shower. “Thank you to my awesome team at work for putting on an unforgettable baby shower for Jill and me!” he gushed at the time. “#babydilly #19kids #firstbabyshowerexperience.” It won’t be long now!
