Many of you are familiar with the TLC TV show 19 Kids and Counting that is now on their 8th season. They are well- known for their strong faith, strict lifestyle and of course their 19 kids and 5 grandchildren. Jill Duggar is the 4th child of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar. She was born on May 17th. 1991. She works as a Midwife and a TV personality from their show.  She was the second to marry out of the 19. She married Derrick Dillard on June, 21st in 2014.

Jill and Derrick met through her dad Jim Bob Duggar. Even though they basically fell in love with each other from the very beginning, it was a struggle for them throughout the relationship because he had been living in Katmandu, Nepal for 2 years doing some missionary work. This made it difficult for them to connect fully because they were so far away from each other.  After finally coming back to Arkansas, he met Jill in person for the first time. Not soon after they were engaged. On August 20, 2014 Jill and Derrick announced to the public that they were expecting their first child, a boy, which is due to arrive March 24, 2015. They are happily married and so excited for the arrival of their baby!
