Jill Duggar Attacked for 'Drinking' While Pregnant (PHOTO)

jill duggar derick dillardThe Duggar family is not without its share of controversy, and even while Jill Duggar is pregnant and expecting her first child with husband Derick Dillard, the storm continues. On Valentine's Day weekend, Derick shared a sweet snapshot of his night-in with his wife, and people immediately harped on Jill for enjoying some well-deserved champagne.


The couple spent the holiday reading the Bible, enjoying their Lifesavers, and sipping on some bubbly. Take a look:

Happy Valentine's Day from the Dillards! #love

People immediately shot back with comments like, "The bible next to a bottle of wine??? What!!!!!"

But now wait a minute. Before we all start criticizing Jill, there are two important points to remember.

One, that's no alcoholic drink or long-aged vintage on the Dillard bed. It's apple cider. You might understand that by the apple photo on the label and the very convenient "Apple" written oh-so-clearly alongside the icon.

The Duggars famously abstain from any and all alcoholic drinks. You best believe that Jill probably hasn't indulged in any adult beverages at any point.

And maybe, more important, some doctors say wine isn't all that bad for pregnant ladies. That's right. After all we've heard about banned foods during pregnancy, some experts will tell you that a little bit of wine is not entirely damning. In fact, studies have shown that pregnant women who indulge in just one bottle of wine per month have better behaved babies.

So if you're pregnant and want to indulge in a glass of bubbly, talk to your doctor and follow their advice. They know better than haters on the Internet.

Did you drink at all while pregnant?
