Tontitown, AR, United States (4E) – Happy news for the Duggar clan of TLC’s reality TV show “19 Kids and Counting”!
Jill Dillard, 23, the second-oldest Duggar daughter of 19 children in the Duggar family, excitedly announced Wednesday that she and husband Derick Dillard, 25, are expecting their first baby due in March.
Jill got a positive result from a pregnancy test while she and Derick were visiting her parents’ home.
“We are so excited,” Jill told People magazine.
“It was surreal. We were shocked. Both of us are so excited,” Derick told the magazine.
Jill and Derick tied the knot on June 21 after a whirlwind, albeit traditional, eight and a half weeks courtship and engagement. The couple, who are both conservative Christians, saved their first kiss for their wedding in Springdale, Arkansas.
The couple’s wedding will be featured in the upcoming season of “19 Kids and Counting,” which premiers Sept. 2 (9 p.m. ET).
