Today Jill Duggar and her cat-hating Deliverance-looking husband Derick Dillard announced on their personal website that she is knocked up with their second child. Of course it was accompanied with a cutesy family picture featuring a sign held by Jill and Derick’s first kid, 20-month-old Israel.
“Words can not describe how excited we all are that God has blessed us with another precious gift!
We are eager for another sweet Dillard baby to join our lives, and we know Israel will be a great big brother. Don’t forget to check back here often for updates on our family and our ministry and remember to tune in Counting On on TLC as this pregnancy unfolds! We are so excited!!!”
They also spoke to People magazine about their new baby. Jill says she’s due in July, that they’re “excited,” children are “a wonderful blessing from God” and that they can’t wait to meet the reason that Counting On will get picked up for another season.
Michelle Duggar better scoot on down to her craft room and start hot gluing some felt baby Jesuses on one of the six dozen spare stockings she keeps on hand in case of a pregnancy emergency. Because there’s going to be one more person celebrating Christmas at the Duggar Compound this year. What am I saying? Michelle’s got it covered. I bet she put aside at least 10 stockings the day Jill said “I do” to Derick. She’s probably already bought and wrapped several years worth of below-the-knee denim skirts and $5 vouchers to wherever the male Duggars get their busted haircuts done for all her future grandbabies. Michelle is on it.
