Jill Duggar Delivers Her April Fool’s Baby!

jill duggar derick dillardIt's the day we've all been waiting for: Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are finally parents! But now we're learning that Baby Dilly's arrival didn't exactly go as planned. In fact, there were more than a few surprises ...


Throughout the pregnancy, we were under the impression that Jill was prepping for a baby boy. And only one baby boy, at that. Turns out, they fooled us all. Jill and Derick are now the proud parents of twin babies: a boy named Christian and a girl named Anastasia!

Sources say that when Derick and sister Jana, the doula, started to fill the home birthing tub, Jill panicked and realized she never learned to swim. Sure, you could technically stand in the tub, but who wants to argue with a mom in labor? What birthing mama wants, birthing mama gets!

That's when the entire caravan of Duggars packed up in the RV and relocated to Mercy Medical Center in nearby Rogers, Arkansas for the big arrival.

But where was Derick?

According to an Instagram post, Derick and brother-in-law Ben Seewald couldn't give up the chance to catch the last snow of the season and went sledding. No cats were harmed ... but was their marriage?

Not only did Derick not make it, but because of Jill's last-minute location swap, TLC cameras were not able to follow. That birthing special they planned? It'll have to be reenacted at a later date.

But baby Ana and Christian are both healthy, were delivered by Grandma Michelle, and have yet to meet their father.

Congratulations to Jill and Derick!

And Happy April Fools Day to you!
