VIDEO Jill Dillard is pregnant with baby number 2

Derick and Jill Dillard

Another lil Duggar is on the way! (Well, technically a lil Dillard, but still.) Derrick and Jill Dillard announced via video earlier today that Jill is currently pregnant with their second child.

Here’s the clip:

“We are expecting!” Derick says at the beginning.

“We were really excited when we found out we were expecting,” Jill adds. “I had been through, like, hundreds of pregnancy tests,” she reveals.

“She bought like a whole big bag online,” Derick chimes in, chuckling.

Jill says that after she got her first positive result she took “like three” just to make sure. “I was so excited,” she says before looking up at Derick and correcting herself: “We were so excited!”

So how does the couple think their one-year-old son will handle having a sibling? “Israel is gonna be a great big brother,” Jill says. “He already loves, just, other little babies. The only thing I think he’s gonna have to work on is learning that babies that are smaller than you, you have to be more gentle with.”

Derick echoed Jill’s sentiments about their eldest son. “Israel’s going to be a fantastic big brother,” he says. Derick reveals that they have shown Israel where the baby is, which might confuse him a bit because what he used to call “stomach” is now “baby.” I’m sure Israel will get used to it over the next 20 years or so. 😉

In addition to the video, Derick and Jill also posted this announcement on their blog:

Words can not describe how excited we all are that God has blessed us with another precious gift!

We are eager for another sweet Dillard baby to join our lives, and we know Israel will be a great big brother.

Don’t forget to check back here often for updates on our family and our ministry and remember to tune in Counting On on TLC as this pregnancy unfolds! We are so excited!!!

Love, the Dillards (party of 4!)

Jill is reportedly due in July.

In case you missed it, Jill’s sister Jessa Seewald announced in August that she is currently pregnant with her second child as well. So it looks like the race is on — and you can watch it all when Counting On returns to TLC in 2017!

    Well at least they can afford them. I would love to have more children but I can’t afford to be a stay at home mom and I can’t afford daycare for more than one.

    • savannah

      Girl, we are in the same boat. If and when, we will only be having one. Its just not financially possible these days, depending on the state (in my case Province) and city on cost of living etc.

      • ren24

        Same. I would love to have a third child. We’ve made a lot of sacrifices for me to stay at home with the first two. Now that they’re a bit older, after paying for seasonal activities/sports and to be able to afford to do the odd fun thing here and there, we just can’t afford a third kid. And now I’m going back to work because it’d be nice to pay off the mortgage before I die of old age! lol

    • barbinop

      That’s unfortunate. I hope that one day you can have more

    • CatesZebraHoodie

      Money wise yes but when you get into have 6, 10, 12 or 20 plus kids then the children suffer by not having their emotional needs met. No quality time with parents. Parents that probably don’t even know your likes and dislikes.

  • shebee

    I am sure Jill is pleased as punch. Especially since little sister Jessa was ahead of her in the baby race. Interesting though, they waited a few weeks to announce this pregnancy. I think the public knew with the first before pee dried on the stick.

  • Nedly Mandingo IV

    Oh looky here, we have a Michelle 2.0 in the making. What’s up with her husband, he looks like an extra from the movie, Deliverance. Someone get him a banjo. Weren’t they just down in Zikaville, Central America?

  • LoLo

    Don’t all parents say their kids will be great big brothers/sisters? What are they going to say?

    • Jelly

      Not mine lol. I knew he wouldn’t be happy to share attention and toys. Haha.

      • Alisson Leech

        Lol. Weirdo.

      • LoLo

        Yeah, but you wouldn’t say he will be terrible towards his new sibling. Maybe jealous. I guess I was very lucky, none of mine was the least bit jealous. My sister on the hand threw a fit when I came home. She told my mom to take me back.

        • guest

          One of my brothers told my mom if she brought home a girl he would throw her in the trash. He was 4. He turned out to be a good big brother, mom ended up with 8 kids. (3 bio, 2 step, 3 adopted.)

          • LoLo

            Ha Ha! From what I am told my sister got into the cleaning products & covered me in palmolive, it was in my ears & eyes, then she poured baby powder all over me so bad that I was choking. My mom thought we were both napping & ran to take a shower. She was 5. I guess we all survived the torture from our siblings. My father has 12 siblings, the stories he’s told us about what they did to each other would shock you. After so many kids my grandmother was used to it. Probably the same for your mom.

            • OMG, that reminds me….when my younger sister and I got our first pair of scissors, I proceeded to cut off one of her two pigtails (all the way to the rubberband). My mom had to brush her hair into a single ponytail for the longest time to cover up the damage. That’s one spanking I’ll never forget. LOL!!!!!!

              • LoLo

                My mom did the same to her sister, cut her bangs off to the scalp! My mom also shaved off her own eyebrows & they never grew back correctly. We got spanked for those types of things too.

          • My brother’s eldest daughter ‘hid’ her little sister in the trash can one day while they were playing outside. We all knew it was her passive resistance. She got in big trouble but away from the kiddies ears we all laugh about it now and again. LOL!

  • pink Glitter

    Due July so she like literally just found out

    • Amanda_56

      im due in July and I’m 12 weeks right now … So she didn’t just find out.

      • barbinop

        She looks like she’s in her first trimester. And congrats to you?

      • pink Glitter

        I had my son July 20th 2015 at 29 weeks I assumed, sorry.

  • barbinop

    I figured that’s why they came back from the mission trip was to have another baby. Jill probably got the all clear after being in Zika countries.

    • Lacy

      Unless they gave Derrick a blood test, they still aren’t in the all clear. Men can actually transmit Zika through their sperm for 6 months, and sometimes you don’t even show symptoms when you were infected so you don’t know. Also they don’t pickup a lot of the problems with the babies until the 3rd trimester. Yet they’re still against the pill and I’m sure preached their lifestyle to women in South America.

  • Alisson Leech

    Then for Jinger’s announcement…

  • Alisson Leech

    Off to The Ashley!!!

  • DoogieHowser

    I wonder if they are going to rush Joy down the asile to try to get aLloyd three of them pregnant at the same time.

    • Jenn

      Or they’re pushing Josh and Anna to get pregnant.

  • twelfthnight

    Derrick looks like the kind of dude who isn’t allowed near schools.
    I wish at least one of the kids in this family would wake up and run for the hills from their culty religion. It would give me hope.

  • Stayx

    This was obvious. She looked Preggo in the last pictures posted. I’d like one of them to deal with infertility and see how they justify it as a gift from god.

  • Aussie cathie

    Yay!!! All you grubber dugger foot washers get the cash out as these gritting mongrels will need everything from soda to bum wipes …,

  • Sarah

    1 Corinthians 11:14 Maybe those Bible thumpers should check that out.

    I wonder how much these men are in to the actually production of kids vs. the act. Like are they doing it for the Duggar “fame” or do they actually want to start a new clan.

  • Guest

    I bet Jessa is pissed that Jill will steal her thunder.

  • enjoythesilence

    Is he trying to look like a dehydrated Jesus?! He looks AWFUL. The Duggars have sucked the life out of him. He was cute when they first met.
