Jill Duggar Baby : Congrats to the new parents Derick and Jill!CNN: Jill Duggar Dillard welcomes baby Jill Duggar Baby Jill Duggar Dillard welcomes baby Israel USA
“19 Kids and Counting” star Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard are the proud parents of a baby boy named Israel David.
Israel was born at 11:49 PM on Monday night. He weighed 9 lbs., 10 ozs., and 23 inches long, Jill shared on Instagram.
The couple thought the little guy, who was due on March 26, was coming on Friday, but it turned out Jill was experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions.
At that point, the couple joked that they might be having an Easter baby.
The new Duggar-Dillard baby name was not expected, but many feel as though it is a beautiful name for a little boy and were just left wondering how the new parents decided upon it. It is more than likely that Jill and Derrick will talk more about their name choice, as much of their pregnancy has been filmed for 19 Kids And Counting. According to the Washington Post, some of Israel’s birth has also been filmed for the show, and is expected to air in May.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the baby’s birth was fairly routine, but not everything went as planned by Jill and Derrick. Jill hinted that the complications they encountered (likely because the baby arrived several days after he was due) will be addressed on 19 Kids And Counting.
Meanwhile, the Duggars are thrilled to welcome a new life into their family.
“We are so thankful for a healthy Mom and baby. Love this sweet baby Israel! We are happy grandparents and we promise more pictures soon,” they posted on Facebook after the baby’s arrival.
Do you like the Duggar baby name? Are you excited to see Israel David’s birth on the show next month? Do you think that Jill and Derrick will have more children in the future? Of course everyone seems to be waiting for Jessa and Ben Seewald to have a pregnancy announcement of their own at this point.
