Looks like Jill Duggar and Derik Dillard have quite an expansion in their boy tribe. The couple welcomed their third kid on July 7,2022. Jill has shared pictures of her sons on her blog.
Jill Duggar posted some photos of the newborn in a cute white onesie printed with the word “Little,” and his brothers Israel and Samuel wore black t-shirts that had “Big” and “Middle,” printed on them.
Jill Duggar and Derick had announced the pregnancy in February. It was very special for them as Jill Duggar had suffered a miscarriage in November 2021. They revealed the gender of their incoming kid back in March by posing with a set of blue balloons.
Throughout her pregnancy Jill kept us informed of the joyous and colorful insights into her pregnancy. Jill Duggar announced the birth of her son last week through a post on her blog. She said that the baby was all set to arrive in the later week of July but he decided to come early.
So, they had to re-plan the C-section and move it up. The baby was born on Thursday, July 7 at 5:16 p.m. just a day before their middle son Samuel’s birthday. He weighed in at 7lbs. 6oz. and measured 20 inches.
The couple are now proud parents of three sons. A 7-years old Israel David Dillard and 5-years old Samuel Scott Dillard and a newly born, the latest addition to their family.
Naming the child of Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard
They have clearly put a lot of thinking in naming their son. They have named him Frederick Michael Dillard. The name incorporates both his father and late grandfather’s name and thus is very special.
Derik Dillard‘s name is also a variation of his late father Rick’s name and now they have carried forward the legacy. Jill said, quote, “We were excited to settle on the name Frederick and include both Derick’s and his dad’s name, by just adding ‘Fre’ to the beginning of Derick’s name, Similarly, Derick’s name is a variation of his late dad’s name, Rick, that his parents created by adding ‘de’ to the front of Rick to spell, ‘de’-‘rick.” The literal meaning of Frederick is ‘Peaceful Ruler’ and the middle name Michael means ‘Gift from God.’
A miracle after Jill Duggar miscarriage
In the October 2021, Jill suffered a devastating miscarriage. Jill wrote, “it was so much fun witnessing the joy on the faces of their kids when they announced the news.” All of them were filled with excitement and questions. But they were really heartbroken when this unfortunate incident happened.
The couple wrote on their website,” Although it was too early to be sure of the gender of the kid, we have decided to pick a name to memorise the baby and encompass its importance- River Bliss Dillard.” Since then the couple had been praying for another kid who’s healthy and sound. Looks like God has answered their prayers.
