It's a very big weekend for the Duggar family! Jill (Duggar) Dillard has given birth to baby Samuel, which confirms all of the fan speculation this week over whether or not she was in labor (or very close to it.)


The official announcement was made on the Dillard family website, with the following statement:

"We are excited to finally announce the arrival of Samuel Scott Dillard. The newest addition to our family arrived on Saturday, July 8, 2017 at 1:02pm. He weighs 9lb 10oz and is 22" long. After 40 (hours) of labor, he was delivered via C-section at the hospital. Thank you for your continued prayers and support!"

Um, 40 hours of labor?!? Good grief! Poor Jill must be absolutely exhausted at this point, but no doubt elated to have her new little man here as well.

We'll be keeping a close eye on the Duggar social media channels for the first glimpse of their new little miracle. We have no doubt that he's just adorable!

Congrats to Jill and Derick on their new addition, and to Israel on becoming a big brother!
