The 19 Kids and Counting family is about to grow again as daughter Jill Duggar prepares for a daughter of her own and shares details of her wedding with television audiences.
Jill and husband Derek Dillard were married earlier this year, and the event is playing a major role on the current season of 19 Kids and Counting. In a recent clip, the couple was seen choosing their location in Springdale, Arkansas, which has a strong significance to the family.
“I’m very familiar with Cross Church. My parents were actually married there and then they renewed their vows there,” Jill explained.
The 19 Kids and Counting star’s wedding was anything but a small affair.
“We’re sending out 1,000 invitations,” Jill said. “Of course that will be give or take depending on how many can come.”
In real life, the wedding is already in Jill Duggar’s rear view mirror, and she already has a baby to look forward to. She announced recently that she and Derek were expecting their first child. She shared photos of a barely there baby bump on Instagram and talked recently about the surprise of getting pregnant so quickly after taking her vows.
“I was thinking that maybe we should take a pregnancy test,” said the 23-year-old 19 Kids and Counting star. Duggar said she took two pregnancy tests after learning she was late, though both came out negative.
But then Jill’s sister suggested she use one of the many pregnancy tests that their mom keeps on hand, and this one turned out positive.
“We were really surprised when we got that positive test,” Duggar told US Weekly, “but of course we were really excited. I think we would have even been less surprised had it come back positive on one of the first tests.”
Jill Duggar will be welcoming her addition to the 19 Kids and Counting family early next year, and there could be more additions soon. Jill’s sister Jessa Duggar just announced her engagement with boyfriend Ben Seewald.
