First-Time Parents

After 70 hours of labor, Jill gave birth to Israel Dillard via emergency C-section. Following the delivery, she was in recovery for about an hour and a half, which gave Derick a chance to bond with his son. Hear from Jill and Derick in the video below.

  2. Our family loves to watch your show. I'm so happy my 13yr and 14yr grand daughters love the show. It's great to have a CLEAN show for families to watch. Blessings

  3. Then title of this blog says Duggar Family. But it should say Jill's Blog. From Jinger on down (except for Josiah, because he's courting) I can count on one hand how many times the other kids have been mentioned in the past couple months or more. ( even like to hear about grandma Duggar!) because they're rarely mentioned anymore I'm going to list them.....

    Jinger, Joseph, Joy Anna, Jedidiah, Jerimiah, Jason, James, Justin, Jackson, Johannah, Jennifer, Jordyn and Josie.
    I miss reading about you all!!!

  5. I am not sure if the other comment worked so here goes again. I would love to send Jill, Jessa and Anna a homemade baby blanket. How do I go about doing that.

  9. Congratulations Jill and Derrick!!! I don't know how long your series will be on, but I for one will definitely miss you and your parents and your siblings. You all show what beautiful Christian servants you all are.There should be more Christian perspectives like you all out there. Jill and Derrick, I know you will enjoy your beautiful Isereal for many years to come. Can this old grandma come and babysit once in awhile??? Derricks, I hope your mom can stay well now after all she's been through. I'm sure both your families will enjoy the new little Isereal....

  11. The videos over the last couple of weeks aren't coming thru. Is anyone else having the same problem? Also, I would love to see Jessa's wedding ring; the one Ben designed. You showed Jill & Derick's rings. And why not Josh & Anna's, and Michele & Jim Bob's; close up of their rings.

  14. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY Michelle, Jana, Jill and Jessa.
    Also, I have a question. I just watched a video on Youtube of Jordyn playing the violin and I'm curious as to why she's not holding the neck of the violin with her left hand. Is that a new technique? My daughter has played violin for years and I've never seen it held like that.

    2. Jana is not a mother.

    3. She probably meant to write Anna :) though in some ways Jana is already a mother. What a gentle soul she is and so genuine in her affection for her siblings and niece and nephews

  15. What is the seewalds website link?

  16. no videos here at all

  17. Some clips come up blank for me also. I discovered that I can right click on the title above the clip and select 'open in new tab'. In the new tab, the video comes up for me to play. This does not work if you are in the comments page. You have to go back to the home page. Thought this might help others with the same problem.

  20. Jill and Derick look like the proud parents of their first born little boy, baby Israel. Congratulations to both of you. Looking forward to seeing him grow. I love how Derick shows such tenderness to Jill and their baby. The Dillards are a beautiful family!!

  26. Jana isn't a mother yet, to the poster who wished her a happy mother's day. I bet they meant Anna. But in a big way I guess Jana is a mother. So I say happy mother's day to them all too.

  27. to anonymous 11 regarding the adblocker...we have an adblocker and we CAN see the videos so I know that is not true for us.

  28. How awful that she had to go to recovery and spend so much time away from little Israel! Is this something that differs hospital to hospital or depends on how strained the mother is? I had a C-section last year and never had to be apart from my daughter. Went right to our room together and breastfed.

  29. Can you add israel to the photo up top? Just wondering because he is a part of their family too, I think he should be included. But anyways congratulations Jill and Derick, he is absolutely beautiful! Many blessings to all of you!!

  33. I keep seeing people questioning where the info about Ben and Jessa is. I have a feeling that Ben and Jessa are choosing to be more private with their lives. If you think about it they have been more tight lipped the entire time. If they choose to not allow info to be posted about them then that has to be respected I think.
