Jill Duggar and Husband Derick Welcome Their First Child

The first of the Duggar girls has given birth to a bouncing baby boy! Jill, who was also the first of the daughters to marry, and her husband Derick Dillard welcomed son Israel David on April 6. The little guy came into the world at 9lbs., 10oz., and a bit past his due date, but he’s here and both mother and child are doing well. Since Jill has been sharing her pregnancy with the world on 19 Kids and Counting and Instagram, we feel like we’ve been anxiously anticipating baby Israel’s birth right alongside the expectant parents. Just a few days ago she shared a photo of her and her hubby out to lunch with the caption, “Out to lunch … maybe this spicy Mexican food will make the baby come … #nobabyyet” We totally understand that struggle! Jill, who has experience as a student midwife, seemed very prepared for the big day. She explained to PEOPLE that she set two due dates for herself, March 24 and April 5, explaining “I have told myself, ‘First-time moms often go a week and a half over, so don’t get discouraged.’ ” The 23-year-old new mom sounded wise beyond her years, saying “When everyone else is asking you, ‘When are you going to have that baby?’ The baby will come when the baby comes.” Congratulations to the happy family, we know Israel David will have lots of love coming his way!
