After a miscarriage in October, Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard announced that they were expecting their third child.
Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are expecting their second child, a baby boy.
After announcing their pregnancy last month, the couple revealed the gender of their unborn child on their family blog on Wednesday.
“We are grateful to be expecting a healthy baby boy in July! Your ongoing prayers are greatly appreciated “
They penned a letter in the mail.
“We had planned on finding out our baby’s gender a couple of weeks ago, but Covid struck our family and we had to postpone the exciting announcement,” said the couple, who have two sons, Israel David, 6, and Samuel Scott, 4.
“However, this turned out to be a blessing in disguise because Israel was on spring break by the time we were able to reschedule.
This allowed our entire family to attend the appointment, as we all learned at the same time that another little boy would be joining the Dillard clan! “They went on.

The Dillards made a day of it, starting with breakfast and shopping at their local Buttered Biscuit before heading to their appointment. They also celebrated the happy news with a family photoshoot, in which Jill, 30, and Derick, 33, held up a onesie printed with the words, “It’s a boy.” Their sons also posed in T-shirts with the words “big” and “middle” on them, as well as a onesie with the word “little” on it.
After a miscarriage in October, Jill and Derick announced on their blog last month that they are expecting a baby. “We have prayed that, if it was God’s will, he would bless us with another baby ever since we were devastated last fall by the miscarriage of our sweet baby, River Bliss,” they wrote at the time.
“We are excited to announce that God has answered our prayers and we are expecting our rainbow baby due July 2022!” their post continued. “We are so thankful for a healthy baby and pregnancy so far and we look forward to finding out the gender soon!”
