Two months after getting married, Duggar daughter Jill has even bigger news: She and husband Derick Dillard are expecting their first child.
They shared the news with People magazine, which put them on the cover of its latest issue.
And while the “19 Kids and Counting” star can’t contain her excitement – “We’re having a baby!” – Derick sounds a little taken aback by the whole thing.
“It was surreal,” the 25-year-old accountant told People. “We were shocked. Both of us are so excited.”
Never miss a local story.
The two just shared their first kiss at their wedding in June, which will air during the new season of the TLC hit reality show that begins Sept. 2.
Jill, 23, is the second-oldest of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s 19 children. Older brother Josh and his wife, Anna, have three children.
Jill found out she was pregnant while recently visiting her parents’ house.
“My sisters were asking if I was pregnant and I’m like, no, and they’re like, well mom has pregnancy tests upstairs and you could be pregnant so you should take one. It was more to prove them wrong — like, we’re not pregnant, I’m going to show you so," she told the mag.
The baby is due in March.
