There will soon be a new addition to the 19 Kids And Counting family after Jill Duggar went into labor on Friday.
Jill and her husband, Derick Dillard, announced the major baby update in a post on Derick’s blog. And the excited dad shared his joy as he awaits the birth of the couple’s first child together.
“I can’t even describe right now the anticipation I am feeling, as I am about to get to meet my firstborn son for the first time face to face,” he wrote. “So many people have already testified that nothing can quite describe that moment and that I’ll just have to experience it for myself.”
He added, “When I look around, I can see new life everywhere. The trees are budding, which means summer is near. My wife, Jill, is beginning to have contractions which means that the birth of our son is near.”
Jill and Derick wed in June 2014 in Springdale, Arkansas, just two months after Derick proposed in April. Two months later, Jill announced her pregnancy.
And though their little one was due close to two weeks ago, but“baby Dilly” is finally on his way!
