Jill & Derick Dillard Are Expecting
Jill, 23, announced that she was pregnant with her and Derick's first child to People. "We're having a baby!" Jill told the magazing. "We are so excited." Derick, 25, added, "It was surreal. We were shocked. Both of us are so excited."
Less than a month after they tied the knot, Jill took a couple of pregnancy tests, believing that she might be pregnant. Both tests were negative. However, when the couple headed over to the Duggar residence, where Jill's sisters encouraged her to take another test, it was positive. Though the prenancy was unexpected, both Jill and Derick have stated that they aren't planning or "not planning" to have children and will be happy to have all the kids that they're blessed with.
Duggar patriarch Jim Bob Duggar, who has 19 kids with his wife MIchelle Duggar, revealed the joyful scene that took place after Jill and Derick told the family that they were expecting.
"About 30 days after Jill and Derick got married they gathered everyone in the living room and shared the news," Jim Bob, 49, told People. "Everyone was clapping and cheering, and we were in shock, too."
Jill and Derick wed on June 21 in front of 1,000 family and friends in Springdale, Ark. They became engaged this past April after a year of courting.
