Is Jill Duggar Dillard In Labor? Derick Posts ‘New Dad’ Pics, Fans Tweet Best Wishes

Is 19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar Dillard in labor? Her husband, Derick, posted a sweet photo collage featuring his “New Dad” shirt and a picture of a very pregnant Jill earlier in the weekend, but since then, the couple has been very quiet on social media.

The couple’s son, known for now as Baby Dilly, is due this week. According to a previous report from the Inquisitr, Jill has chosen to have a home birth and Derick will be her coach. Whether or not their son is on the way is not known, but it won’t be long until 19 Kids fans see the “he has arrived” post on the couple’s Instagram and Twitter accounts.

While fans await the news that the newest member of the Duggar clan has arrived, many of Jill and Derick’s followers on social media have been sending the couple good wishes for a speedy labor and a healthy baby boy.

According to People, the couple recently returned from a family vacation in Texas, just days ahead of Jill’s March 24 due date.

“We had a great time with family on vacation, but it doesn’t look like we’re going to have a Texas baby.”

Yahoo! Parenting reports that some fans were surprised that Jill traveled out of state so close to her due date. While most of the comments on the couple’s vacation photo were positive, there were a few followers who commented that it was “odd” that the Dillards were traveling in the final weeks of her pregnancy.

However, Jill was prepared for the possibility that Baby Dilly might make an early entrance — she contacted midwives in Texas just in case she went into labor on vacation. Fortunately, the baby didn’t arrive during their vacation, and they returned home to Arkansas wait for Jill’s labor to begin.

“We had a great time with family on vacation, but it doesn’t look like we’re going to have a Texas baby.”

Babies don’t always arrive on their due date, and many first babies tend to arrive a little late, but the silence on social media may be a clue that the stars of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting are in the midst of welcoming their son into the world. If not, perhaps they are just taking some final moments alone before they become a family of three.
