Jill Duggar Welcomes Baby Dilly to the World

It's official: Baby Dilly is here! Finally. Have we been waiting forever? Feels like it. But nine months and approximately 2 million Instagram pictures later, Jill Duggar has given birth to a healthy baby boy!

The brand new fam announced that Israel David was born at 11:49 p.m. Monday. The little guy weighed 9 lbs., 10 oz., and everyone is healthy and happy that the baby's finally outta there. Us included.

Jill was scheduled for an at-home water birth with a midwife and a ton of camera crews -- which means we can all catch the specifics when it airs on TLC on May 5 (We were starting to wonder if they baby would even make that deadline, but it looks like we're good to go.) -- but from the look of pictures of Jill in a hospital, it looks like things went a little differently.

The little guy was born 13 days after his March 24 due date, and that's late even for first-time moms. He didn't even make Jill's back up "due date" of April 5 ... and that's when Jill gave in and started eating Mexican food to hopefully kick start her labor.

And it finally worked! Even if Israel did take his sweet time.

Baby Dilly is the fourth grandchild (and counting) in the Duggar clan, but they're expecting at least one more this year from Josh and Anna, whose fourh child is due in June.

So Israel, eh? Jill and Derick have said before that they're not going to work with a letter theme like Michelle and Jim Bob or Anna and Josh, but that they're still open to other traditions.

Could this be a place theme that Israel started? We'll have to wait to find out for sure, but knowing the breakneck pace that the Dillards have taken in their relationship so far, it probably won't be very long until Baby #2 is on the way to give us another hint on the direction their going.

But we're not rushing you, Jill!

Are you excited to finally meet Baby Dilly?
