Congratulations to former 19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard. The couple welcomed their second child over the weekend.
They took to their Dillard family website to share the happy news, writing: “We are excited to finally announce the arrival of Samuel Scott Dillard! The newest addition to our family arrived on Saturday, July 8, 2017 at 1:02pm. He weighs 9lb 10oz and is 22” long. After 40 hours of labor, he was delivered via C-section at the hospital. Thank you for your continued prayers and support!”
