Baby Dilly is finally ready for his debut!

19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar gave birth to her first child, Israel David, with husband Derick Dillard on April 6 at 11:49 p.m.

According to People, Jill and her 9 lbs., 10 oz. baby boy are doing well!

Israel was born almost two weeks past his March 24th due date. “I have told myself, ‘First-time moms often go a week and a half over, so don’t get discouraged,'” the student midwife told People. “When everyone else is asking you, ‘When are you going to have that baby?’ The baby will come when the baby comes.”

Jill has been documenting her pregnancy through baby bump photos. Derick even revealed that his wife was in labor on April 3 before announcing that it was just a false alarm!

Fans will, of course, be able to watch Israel’s birth on May 5 on TLC.
