Derick and Jill Dillard are open to having a huge family, but in many ways, the growing Dillard family is different than the Duggar clan. Although Josh and Anna Duggar have followed Jim Bob and Michelle’s lead by giving their kids names that all begin with the same letter, Derick and Jill have decided to let each child have his or her own first letter.
Jill Dillard currently has a bun in the oven — and she’s already thinking about kids number two and three! The 19 Kids And Counting star hopes to follow in her mother’s footsteps, eventually welcoming several children into her family. She and Derick Dillard are also considering the possibility of adoption!
Long before they tied the knot, Derick and Jill Dillard chatted almost every day on Skype. This surprisingly modern courtship approach took the Duggar family’s Facebook fans by surprise. Clearly, online romance can work for anybody — even the cast of 19 Kids And Counting!
The Duggar family recently welcomed Derick Dillard…and Ben Seewald is next in line for the honor of joining the 19 Kids And Counting crew. Just a few months after Jessa Duggar and her beau tie the knot, yet another guy will join the family: Derick and Jill Dillard’s baby boy!
It’s pretty obvious that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are not big on birth control — they are the stars of 19 Kids And Counting, after all. Although Facebook fans were not particularly surprised when Jim Bob recently voiced his opposition to birth control, some found his opinions on the matter a bit problematic.
Jessa Duggar and Jill Dillard’s courting adventures have been thoroughly documented on 19 Kids And Counting, but their older sister has yet to meet that special someone. According to recent rumors on Facebook, there’s a good reason for Jana Duggar’s single lady status: she’s too busy taking care of the younger Duggars!
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have been very busy between Jill Dillard’s wedding and baby news, Jessa Duggar’s engagement, and of course, parenting all of their children. And on this week’s episode of 19 Kids and Counting, aside from preparing for Jill’s wedding, Michelle and Jim Bob also celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary, family style, of course!
Jill Dillard has officially reached the second trimester of her pregnancy. The 19 Kids And Counting star is excited to welcome her first child into the world, but like many expecting mothers, she’s also worried about the labor and delivery process. Fortunately, she’s come up with a great way to keep the stress to a minimum: writing Bible verses!
The Duggar gals are getting more and more involved on social media — they already boast accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook! While Jill Dillard has been happy to devote her accounts to pregnancy progress pictures, her younger sister is not afraid to attract criticism with increasingly political posts. The 19 Kids And Counting star recently caused a stir by comparing aborted fetuses to Holocaust victims — and based on her other recent Twitter updates, she’s not about to back away from her controversial views!
There is no such thing as privacy when you’re a 19 Kids And Counting star in the midst of the courtship process. Although Facebook fans have long been aware of the Duggars’ strict chaperone rules, few knew of Jim Bob and Michelle’s text message supervision. Basically, Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald will not enjoy even a tiny bit of privacy until they tie the knot.
