The 19 Kids and Counting star was way past her due date. People reports that, more than a week after Jill Duggar’s due date came and went, the 19 Kids and Counting star and second-oldest daughter of the gigantic Duggar family, is in labor with her first child.
Her husband, Derick Dillard, confirmed the news on the Dillard family website. “I can’t even describe right now the anticipation I am feeling, as I am about to get to meet my firstborn son for the first time face to face,” he wrote. “So many people have already testified that nothing can quite describe that moment and that I’ll just have to experience it for myself.”
“Baby Dilly,” as he’s already been nicknamed, will be a celebrity as soon as he’s born. TLC’s cameras are with the expecting parents, and the network will air a two-hour special on May 5, right before Mother’s Day, as part of its “Mother of all Weeks” event.
