    1. I'm sure they did it for a good reason. One you wouldn't understand. And its not you business or choice of what nickname they give their baby, because it's their baby. Its not weird so I think you should leave it to them.

  28. I don't want to put a damper on things but isn't it to soon to take pictures like this? Isn't there a possibility of losing the baby this early? And why little girl shoes?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think they are just too excited to sit on the news. Of course there's a possibility of the worst happening but I think that's being negative to worry. This couple is positive and focusing on the best, as they should. As far as the shoes go they found an adorable pair of neutral shoes either sex could wear. Good luck and Godspeed to the happy couple!

    I am going to place my guess in early and say: GIRL!!!

  32. Awww i'm so happy for you two!!! :)

  33. You know what would be nice? If they actually waited 9 months to find out the sex of the baby. Just look forward to the biggest surprise of your life & trust The Lord to bless you with a healthy baby!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Congrats!! So excited for you both and your growing family! I wonder if they will start a tradition that they will name all their children starting with the letter D since bot her maiden name and new last name and husbands name all start with D's... Tht would be neat!

    ReplyDelete
  35. No it's never too soon to celebrate and acknowledge a new baby. The more people praying for a healthy baby and pregnancy early on the better. Also, if they were to lose the baby it's nice to have the support and prayers once again from friends and family and not to have to suffer alone. Having no one else know that you are grieving and have lost a child would make the process all the more hard

    ReplyDelete
  36. So so excited for you. Can't wait.

  37. Really sweet:) the first picture is a bit too personal, almost suggestive. But I'd probably take the same pic. Love them!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree with your opinion of the picture where they are full-frontal with each other with only their bodies showing - no faces. It seemed very sensual to me. I know they are married, but that pose IS suggestive. I love them, though, and pray they will have a happy and healthy pregnancy and they fully use the 9 months to build on their relationship! Thanks Lily and Ellie!

      Delete
  38. Congratulations you two. Hope it's a girl, because the last two births were boys and there's only one girl. Hey Lily and Ellie, who gave the name "baby Dilly"? Did you two or did the Duggar?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Has jill gone to the doctor to confirm the pregnancy or did she based it on the pregnancy home test? I wish them well but worry she may have jump the gun on sharing this information to early.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow, that was quick! I think it would've been nice for them to enjoy the newly we'd stage a bit longer together but I am still def happy for them. I'm wondering if the fact that in the pics they have chose to include "girl" baby shoes is a hint as to what the gender is?!?

  44. Congrats! But I do agree with Anonymous 1. It is a bit soon. I personally wouldn't have even made the announcement. But thanks for keeping us posted Lilly and Ellie.-God bless

  45. This is super exciting for the whole Duggar clan. I bet Michelle is super excited. I wonder if she will be able to have baby #20?! That would be such a blessing.

  46. I agree with anonymous number 1 that it's a bit too early to announce the pregnancy with all due respect to Jill and Dillard.Hope everything goes well and they have a happy healthy baby:)

  47. A baby Dillard!! So cute, I wonder if Jill will be monitoring her own prenatal care...congratulations!!!

  48. So soon. Could this baby have been conceived before the wedding? Especially as they seem to know the gender.

  53. Jill is a brillant woman & I was hoping she will carry on studying & enjoy life as new married couple. It is nice news their baby. But it is early .... Early in pregnancy ! Early in life as a couple ! I wish Jill an healthy 9month. Congratulations from Virginia in Europe.

  56. I kind of agree with #1. I really hope the best for them! Precious photos also.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Congratulations, but don't you think maybe you should have waited till the end of the first trimester to announce it.

    ReplyDelete
  58. They're NOT little girl shoes, but neutral baby shoes! And no it's not too early, they're capturing the early celebratory joy and will later no doubt capture the bump in another session probably around 30wks; which is a good time where the baby bump is a good size, but not heavily big...

    ReplyDelete
  59. Whether there is a miscarriage or not, there is still a child in her belly worth celebrating.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I was really hoping they would wait, but they are both excited so congrats to them!

    ReplyDelete
  61. First pic of the baby? You can´t see anything of a baby this soon.

    ReplyDelete
  62. @Anonymous
    I'm not sure your personal opinion can put a "damper" on such wonderful news. If you're a fan, you know the Duggar's embrace life from the first moment and, sadly, they're no strangers to loss. They are following their hearts and it's a beautiful thing. As for the girl shoes, maybe they just grabbed the closest pair. After all, there are plenty laying around their house. Or maybe they're hoping for a girl?! Who knows? Let the newlyweds be thrilled. Congrats, Derick & Jill!

  63. "Children are a Heritage from the Lord" Praise our Heavenly Father for this priceless Gift! I love you Jill and Derrick!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. That is very exciting news for them! However, I do think it is very soon to have kids. It is important to spend time as husband and wife first before bringing kids into the picture. I also think they should have waited a bit longer to tell everyone the news. Jessa just got engaged and then they release this just days after and all of the attention is back on them. I think they should have let the focus stay on her sister for awhile. After all they had months of it before and during their wedding process. That would also allow for time for them to get past their first trimester when most miscarriages occur too.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I was so excited when i heard the news that i got the goosebumps.Congratulations to Jill and Derick and to the little Dilly baby, extra prayers will be headed your way.

    ReplyDelete
  66. If she got pregnant right after marriage, she'd be 12 to 13 weeks pregnant, which is generally when people start announce. Right when you get a positive pregnancy test you're considered about four weeks pregnant even though conception didn't occur four weeks before.

  71. @Anon- I agree with you that it is too soon. And yet I think that this family has just fully accepted that they are in the spotlight and will likely document all of life on camera.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Cute announcements! Congratulations toyou both

    ReplyDelete
  73. She's probably almost into her 2nd trimester of pregnancy already! It's not super early to announce/put pics up already I wouldn't think.

    And I am SO excited for you guys!! Can't wait to see what God has in store for your lives Jill and Derick!

    ReplyDelete
  74. If they do lose the baby I am sure they will be very glad that they did take these pictures. So happy for them!

    ReplyDelete
  75. It doesn't matter if she loses the baby or not. Announcing a baby after the first trimester, is totally opinion.Why does it matter if its little girl shoes? Do you perfer boy shoes? I think the point is baby shoes not wether it's boy or girl shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  76. My goodness,how wonderful!!Excited to see pictures of your new little GOD sent!!!!

    I agree with the first comment--I am happy when i hear of new life, but the first trimester is so scary and sometimes miscarriages happen more often then. I think it would have been wise to wait until at least the first trimester to share the good news with the world! Better this way, then have to break bad news and suffer loss in front of the world on TV. I love the Duggars and what they stand for, but I think this announcement was rushed because everyone was expecting it and it brings more ratings on their show.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Congratulatios. Far too early. To share the news with the world in my view, but the dollars from People Magazine seem to be drive-ing. the decisions of this family. Ithey do not have a television but they star in a reality TV show, they do not read Peopel but have an exclusieve contract with them.

  84. When you trust God with your family size and acknowledge that EVERYTHING is His, Then you know that if He chooses to take this little one then its meant for His glory and our growth that will draw us closer to Him if we lean on Him for strength. And that ALL babies are safely in His care. There is nothing wrong with anouncing it this early, because it is making memories of a joyful time. And by anouncing it they can have more support from friends and family. Any life,no matter how short needs to be celebrated. At least they know they can have a baby! Some women would give anything to be pregnant.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Iam doing medical school in London and there is no life by only few of pregnancy. I do understand the love this couple have for each other and wish for a baby but NO this is not a life yet. Therefore I wish a healthy pregnancy for Jill Duggar. Very best. Anne from Europe.

    1. Aw..if it has a heartbeat then YES it is a life!! Even if it is just a few weeks, it still has blood pumping through it. Non living things don't have heartbeats!!!

  86. It's not too early. She is roughly 8-9 weeks pregnant. Technically the entire first trimester is "the danger zone" but once you hear or see a heartbeat your chance for miscarriage goes down drastically. I know many women (myself included) who share the news this early.
    I don't know about the girl shoes though. It was probably just for the picture.

  89. As Christians, we believe life begins at the moment of conception. Therefore, Jill's baby is most definitely a life. I'm insulted by those who say it's not a life.

  90. @AnonymousDon't rain on their parade... This is exciting news for them. To jump to the extreme that they could lose the baby is a horrible thing to say.

    She is definitely in the first trimester. She hasn't been married long enough to be in the second. She married exactly two months ago. If she got pregnant on her wedding night she would be 10 weeks along.

    Life begins at conception. The smallest unit of life is an organism. Her child is more than an organism.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Michelle has 21 babies. 19 living.

    I hope they just name kids paying no mind to letter or rhyme of things.

    This is a really nice thing for his mom to see.

  95. Wow that was quick. Also because they were not courting very long

    ReplyDelete
  96. We should be diligent to keep in mind that this child is and will be a DILLARD, not a Duggar. I think it is an insult to Derick and his family to refer to this child as a "Dugggar". Also, it would be respectful from now on to refer to Jill as Jill Dillard. She is married.

    ReplyDelete
  97. You know anon. 100, you may be in medical school, but you have much to learn about life. Life begins when it begins, which is at the moment of conception. It may not be a viable life, but it is a life, none the less. Perhaps you should question your teachers and their motives in teaching you such things. Especially if you are a Christian and enjoy watching other Christians such as the Duggars.

  98. I'm so happy for you guys!!!!!!

  99. A baby is a baby however old it is in the womb. Those who do not call it a life and abort it are murdering a sweet child. A friend of mine had a baby and I couldn't image if they had just aborted her. Jill's baby is a life and I'm so excited for her!

    ReplyDelete
  100. kms#109: Something has always confused me about this family..(well, many things), but if this family believes in the afterlife so strongly and adamantly, why do they consistently NOT count the two pregnancies that did not make it? Aren't those souls,(babies) in heaven and exist with God according to their strong beliefs? Why don't they say they have 21 children, 2 in heaven? They only count the 19 that are here....illogical to me.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I wanted to comment on an above posters comment saying she is in the early stage and therefore it is not a life. YES it is a life. If she were 8 to 10 weeks it would have a heartbeat, blood pumping through it. There aren't any non living things or objects that has a heartbeat!! A heartbeat means Living!!

    ReplyDelete
  102. The show premiere is on Sept. 2nd, this baby news definitely will attract more viewers. Otherwise, there is no reason to announce it so early. Their friend Erin Bates just had a miscarriage at around 9 weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I get confused at times by the Duggars. They are very modest and I agree with that but a picture where they are facing each other so closely is very suggestive and immodest. All the kissing the married couples do in public doesn't seem modest. Having the cameras there when babies are born for the whole world to see doesn't seem modest either. Seems to send mixed messages on modesty.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Home tests these days are very accurate..also I didn't need to wait for the home test, I got the morning sickness almost immediately with mine.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I am so happy for them. Me and my husband were married only 2 months and I found out I was pregnant with our first child. Children are such a blessing and just like the Duggars we are planning to let God determine the size of our family.

    ReplyDelete
  106. @Jessica @ My Coffee is Cold I am pregnant and I conceived on June 18th, which is before Jill and Derrick got married, and I won't be 12 weeks until Wednesday. So she can't be more than 10 or 11 weeks now and was probably more like 8 or 9 weeks when they announced it to the world.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I feel Jill and Derrick should have waited for a couple of weeks to make sure everything was moving along and less of a danger of a miscarriage. Also they should have allowed Ben and Jessa. A little time in the limelight. They always try to out do Jessa and shame on them for that. congratulations to jessa and Ben on your engagement it was kind of both of you to wait until after the wedding to allow Jill and Derrick their time in the limelight.before you announced your engagement.
