Jill Duggar: '19 Kids And Couning' Star Wants A Bigger House So She Can Start Giant Family Of Her Own

Jill Duggar is ready to take after her parents and start a giant family of her own.

The 19 Kids and Counting star and husband Derick Dillard were seen on the show's latest episode doing some house hunting as they prepare for their first baby, due in just a few months. The couple was checking out a sprawling home, one that Jill said will hopefully be filled with kids one day.

Jill's sister Jessa Duggar, who is set to marry fiance Ben Seewald, said she didn't share the same aspirations to live in a big house.

"Good thing we're going to have a tiny house. It's going to be one floor," Jessa said. "I envision our first house being very small, less work to do that way and easier to clean. That's what I envision."

"Just a nice simple first house," Ben agreed.

There could be a good reason that Jill Duggar is taking after her parents. On this week's episode of 19 Kids and Counting viewers saw her and then-fiance Derick Dillard going through a pre-marriage counseling led by Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar.

"The four of us meet on a weekly basis for counseling," Michelle said in the clip. "I believe it is our responsibility to equip our children to be prepared for that next step in life of marriage."

Jill has been keeping fans updated on the pregnancy, which just hit the 15-week mark. The former Duggar sister, who now goes by her married name of Jill Dillard, shared photos of her baby bump with People magazine.

There is also speculation that Jill Duggar could be carrying twins. The October 21 episode of 19 Kids and Counting is titled "All About Jill," with Jill teasing that she has a big announcement to make. Other theories are that she will be revealing the sex of the baby, though it would likely still be too early to tell that.
