It looks as if child loss has ravaged the ‘rebel’ Duggar yet again. Jill Dillard just announced a sad loss on social media.

The Dillards posted this photo with the following caption on April 13, 2024:

💔It is with heavy hearts that we announce the stillbirth of our beautiful baby girl, Isla Marie Dillard. Jill was 4 months pregnant (due in August) when we found out that our baby died in utero. From the moment we found out we were pregnant, we couldn’t wait to meet our baby. Isla was much loved from the start, and her 3 big brothers were so excited to introduce her to their world.

We appreciate your prayers as we continue to grieve and heal from the loss of our little Isla Marie. 😭🩷
