19 Kids and Counting Star alum Jill Dillard (née Duggar) announced last month that she and her husband Derick were expecting their fourth child together. Now, the couple has revealed the gender of their little one.
It’s a boy! This baby, who will be arriving in July of this year, will be Jill and Derick’s third son. The couple also lost a baby due to miscarriage, whom they named River Bliss, but they never learned the gender of their angel baby. The couple’s sons Israel David and Samuel Scott joined in the exciting gender reveal pictures wearing shirts that said “Big” and “Middle” respectively.
In the blog post announcing the news, the couple shared that they had planned to reveal their baby’s gender sooner but there was a delay as both Jill and Derick had tested positive for COVID-19. “We had originally planned on finding out our baby’s gender earlier, a couple weeks ago, but Covid hit our family and we had to delay the exciting revelation. However, this turned out to be a blessing in disguise because by the time we were able to reschedule, Israel was on spring break. This meant our whole family could be together for the appointment, as we all found out together that another little boy would be joining the Dillard tribe!”
Congratulations to Jill and Derick on the news of their baby boy! We wish them good health as they prepare to welcome another son into the world.
