Jill Duggar, of the hit TLC reality show 19 Kids And Counting, is overdue with her first child, nicknamed #BabyDilly. By now, most moms are feeling — and looking — mentally and physically exhausted, uncomfortable, and cranky. Not Jill Duggar! She looks as lovely and peaceful today as she did at the very beginning of her pregnancy.
One thing I find unique to the Duggar family members in comparison to other reality TV stars is the inner peace and joy that is easily seen on their faces. Their eyes shine with it. The Duggar family has come under fire more than once over the years for the strict way their children are raised, their religious views, and the fact that they have such a large family. It only takes one look to see the love, respect, and admiration the Duggars hold for one another. The happiness that glows from their expressions is not there because they have never seen hard times, but rather because they face those hard times together and put complete trust in God. Their lifestyle may not be right for everyone, but it definitely works for them.
Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard are eagerly anticipating the newest Duggar family addition but are not stressing over how long it will take. Jill understands that many first-time moms can go over a week past the due date before delivering. The Daily Mail reports that Jill is a trained midwife who has delivered as many as 30 babies. As time rolls on, Jill and Derick are wondering if their new little boy, nicknamed Baby Dilly, will be born on the anniversary of their engagement on March 29 of last year. It certainly could happen, but if so, Baby Dilly needs to pack his bags and start the journey already. March 29 is tomorrow, after all.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, Jill Duggar Dillard and husband Derick may be planning to name the baby Israel. The couple will not carry on the original Duggar theme of keeping to the same first letter for all the children, but may instead choose all Bible or family names. With Baby Dilly just about to make his appearance, Jill and Derick will have at least a year to iron out the name game details.
