That sure didn’t take long! Just two months after tying the knot, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are expecting a child! Although the reality star made it clear from the beginning that she was eager to start a family of her own, Facebook fans were still not anticipating pregnancy news this soon. Looks like there will be yet another interesting story line on the next season of 19 Kids And Counting!
They may be enjoying their time as a newly married couple, but Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard definitely mean business when it comes to family matters. The lovebirds, who kissed for the first time during their June wedding ceremony, are already expecting their first child. They recently shared the exciting news with People, explaining, “We’re having a baby! We are so excited.”
As surprised as Twitter followers are, this development was even more of a shock for Jill and Derick. Apparently, Jill had taken multiple pregnancy tests after her honeymoon, all of which were negative. Then, however, Jill’s sister convinced her to try one of Michelle Duggar’s pregnancy test — and this time, she had completely different results.
Like everybody else, Jim Bob was taken aback by news of Jill’s pregnancy, although, of course, he was thrilled for his daughter. The famous dad explained, “About thirty days after Jill and Derick got married they gathered everyone in the living room and shared the news. Everyone was clapping and cheering, and we were in shock, too.”
