    Congratulations on your new little blessing! As you now know, there is no feeling as joyous as the birth of your child. The overwhelming abundance of love that you have for a child has no comparisons to any other love. As your parents can tell you, the feelings are the same with each child The Lord blessed you with. You’ve embarked on yet another new journey in your lives. God bless and keep you all!

    Congratulations to the Dillard family, and to the Duggar family as well! I wish you a very speedy recovery and plenty of time to be able to bond with your sweet little one! I feel for you that things did not go as planned our daughter was due March 17, 2014 and after almost 3 days of labor and 3 1/2 hours of pushing we had to have a cesarean section that was followed with many complications for both me and our daughter but one our biggest comforts was our Bible that we brought with us it reminded us to have faith in the Lord as we were blessed! Our little girl just turned one and she is thriving and I will pray for the same for your little family! God is good and he is giving you the most beautiful little baby boy, he’s gorgeous, thank you for taking the time out to update everyone on your and his health!

    Aww, congratulations! I love the name. Our family would be categorized as “Messianic” or “Hebrew/Christian Roots” so the names Israel & David (as in the line of Judah) are especially meaningful to us as we are patiently waiting for the Messiah to restore the whole house of Israel, making the 2 sticks into one again! (Ezekiel 37) My 4th born is 2 months old now & she was 9 lbs. 15 oz, which is my biggest yet (although the other three children were all in the 9 pound range). Enjoy your baby moon. I know you will have LOTS of great helpers. <3

    Derick & Jill, Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful son! I pray that God continues to bless you as you begin your life as parents. I’m so happy to see a young couple that has always made God the center of their marriage. Enjoy this little poem: “Marriage Takes Three” I once thought marriage took Just two to make a go, But now I am convinced It takes The Lord also. And not one marriage fails Where Christ is asked to enter As lovers come together With Jesus at the center. But marriage seldom thrives, And homes are incomplete, Til He is welcomed there To help avoid defeat. In homes where Christ is first, It’s obvious to see, Those unions really work, For marriage still takes three.

    Congratulations Derick and Jill on the birth of your beautiful new son. Jill, you are an inspiration to pregnant women everywhere to just relax and enjoy their pregnancies and not stress over due dates. God knows what He is doing, and babies like God, do things in their own time. I loved seeing your weekly baby bump pics and loved your smile through it all. Again, congratulations and many blessings for you and your beautiful son……. Diane from Jay, Oklahoma

    Dear Jill & Derick, Congratulations on the birth of Israel David! I’m so happy for you both and the entire family! I’ve loved watching your shows since “14 Kids and Pregnant Again” aired more than a decade ago. You offer many hope for a happier world full of love, faith, family and adventure! I hope one day to get the chance to meet some of your family. Best wishes in this new phase of your lives! Love, Lauren

    Congratulations on the birth of your son. From the birth announcement it looks like you had to be in the hospital. I know you wanted the baby at home but things have a way of going in a direction we may not always know. Hopefully the next time around it will be as you had planned. You are all still so very blessed. I appreciate your show. Reality tv was nvr something i ever liked to i was injured and had to be wheel chair bound for some months. I had alot of time on my hands so i started watching more and more reality tv. Im very thankful becausd i found your show. It is so tefreshing. I just wish more people had your values and ways.

Thank God that your child came into this world and that you were patient about waiting for “his big day”. He is so beautiful….God bless him and both of you for following the Biblical reasons for how and when your baby was to be born. God knows what He is doing, and like “your song” says, “He was thinking of you when he made me”. All best wishes go out to you. Stay strong against any naysayers.

    Congratulations Derrick and Jill. I was patiently waiting for the little one to be born. I love his name and the meaning behind it. I watched the episode where Derrick had mentioned the names you guys picked if it was a boy or a girl, but I did not understand the girl’s name. It was very unusual and I have not heard it before. Do you mind repeating it and letting me know what it means? I do believe children are a gift from God, unfortunately due to medical issues I was only able to have one, a daughter, Rebekah, who is 14 (June 28 she will turn 15). I am so, so happy I have her in my life. I always tell her she is my miracle baby. I (still) do get upset a certain things because I can not have anymore children, but I am glad and excited when I see a new life born into this world. Thank you for all of your positivity and love. God Bless You and Yours, Johanna Leverentz Houston, TX

    Wow for 70 hours of pain. i sure hope you take the next five weeks easy so you do not develop adhesions from over doing things. Please follow what the doctors tell you…. You have alot of adjustments the first year. So sleep at the same time as your son. You will learn his schedule fast when he wakes up. Bath time is not fun for him until he gets use to the water and the clothing being off. He will cry but talk to him and perhaps a soft song as you go and kissing him. He will smile at you and things sure make you both feel good as it goes.

    I also had a 70 hour labor when I had my first baby. I also ended up having a cesarean, in Germany, where they are very hesitant to perform this procedure. I was exhausted and confused afterwards. With my second baby, born in the USA, I elected a cesarean as I was told this situation would most likely happen again. I had a much easier recovery. Anyway, I just wanted to say that I know how grueling and tiring your experience was! However, you will recover fully, like I did, and everyone is safe. That is what matters!

    Congratulations on the arrival of your precious baby boy! God bless! I love the show, and hardly ever miss a show. You all are so inspiring and such a blessing…Also what I find so cool is that I myself just had my 2nd baby girl and she was also born April 6th 2015. She was born at 11:49 pm weighing 7 lbs. 15 ounces and has a head full of red hair! I just thought that was so amazing being that I love you all and your show and and I happened to have had my baby the same day as Jill! Again I just want to say congrats and may God bless you all and in everything you do

    First of all I want to say Congratulations to the new baby. God has once again done a BEAUTIFUL work through you two. I want to email you two about my son and his Special Girl. They have the exact situation as you 2 did during courtship. We are at a loss for coming up with new ideas for them . Can you 2 give any advise for us . I would have done this differently but didn’t know how else to reach you other than this page. Thank you so much for being a Godly influence .

    Hello, I have just heard that your little baby boy was born. I am from Germany and watch the tv series about your family on tv (TLC), but in the last episode you both have just started a courtship and when I searched for your website now, I found out that you have become a little family by now. All best wishes, and blessings from Germany for the new born baby- kids are our future and you are a really nice couple! And I wish your family all the best!!!
