19 Kids and Counting may soon need a new title as the prolific Duggar clan just keeps getting bigger.
The hit TLC show, which features the oversized Duggar family, has been on a shooting hiatus for the past several months. But during that time the family has continued to expand, with daughter Jill tied the knot with Derick Dillard.
The second daughter of the Duggar clan shared plenty of pictures of her wedding and honeymoon, telling People Magazine that she and her new beau rented a beach house in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina.
“Every morning, we would wake up and go out and sit on the deck and listen to the waves. It was beautiful. It was very private without a lot of people there yet for the season. It was so relaxing. It was really pretty there. It was wonderful. We were able to be away for almost a full week.”
Jill and new husband Derrick Dillard have said they want to have kids very soon, which could be adding more kids to the 19 Kids and Counting family.
Derick Dillard may not be the only new member to join the 19 Kids and Counting clan. Jill’s sister Jessa has started dating Ben Sewald, and mom Michelle Duggar said the couple has already gotten quite close — at least by Duggar standards.
Michelle said: “Dad allowed them to do a side hug when they were officially courting… Jessa and Ben have said that was the only contact they would have, when they initially greet each other, when he comes to visit for their first hello, they have a quick 30-second-or-less side hug and a goodbye side hug, and they agreed that would be the only contact they should have.”
Though they may be pushing the limits of body contact, Jessa Duggar and Ben Sewald have a wholesome foundation. The couple met in church and bonded over scripture, ABC reported.
It’s not known what role the new men for Jessa and Jill Duggar will play in 19 Kids and Counting when the show returns this fall.
