Jill Duggar Dillard remains on baby watch with parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. About to become grandparents for the fourth time, did they ever dream that they would one day be the stars of a reality TV show that reveals just how many children they have? Now the 19 Kids and Counting mom and dad are excited along with Jill and her husband Derick Dillard, who is helping count down to the birth of her first baby, originally due March 24, reported E News.
Sharing the latest baby news on Instagram, 26-year-old Derick revealed that they are hoping that the Easter Bunny will deliver a baby along with the baskets.
“Still waiting to meet our little guy. Maybe we’ll have an Easter baby! #jillmdillard #babydilly”
His 23-year-old wife Jill, who knows that they will be having a boy, has been trying to get the labor started by indulging in a spicy lunch, thought to encourage the birth.
“Out to lunch…maybe this spicy Mexican food will make the baby come! Only Braxton Hicks contractions with this weather so far. We shall see what the weekend brings! #nobabyyet#lunchwithmyhubby”
Initially, Derick had hoped his first son would be born on the anniversary of their engagement, March 29.
“I can’t even describe right now the anticipation I am feeling, as I am about to get to meet my firstborn son for the first time face to face. So many people have already testified that nothing can quite describe that moment and that I’ll just have to experience it for myself.”
As for Michelle and Jim Bob, is another baby a desired possibility? The 19 Kids And Counting co-stars revealed that they visited a fertility doctor, reported People.
“Conception is not totally impossible, but most unlikely,” shared Michelle.
However, both of the Duggars emphasize that they believe the number of children that they have is up to God.
“We’ve always put this in Gods hands,” said Jim Bob. “And if God wants to give us more children, we are going to be happy either way.”
Michelle’s pregnancies have not all gone smoothly. Her youngest daughter Josie was a premature baby, and Michelle had a miscarriage in 2011 during her 20th pregnancy.
In addition, as the Inquisitr reported, not all of her children have enjoyed starring in 19 Kids And Counting. Jana Duggar recently spoke out about her feeling that she has become an unpaid nanny and housekeeper for the family. And Michelle revealed her own battle with bulimia.
