Derick Dillard Confirms Jill Duggar Is in Labor​

jill duggar and derick dillardIt's official! Baby Dilly is finally on his way and Derick Dillard has just confirmed the happy news on his blog. The soon-to-be-dad not only tweeted a cryptic message about the "womb" early Friday morning, but he confirmed the big moment on The Dillard Family blog.


Still don't believe this day is finally here? Here's what Dillard posted on the couple's shared website:

I can’t even describe right now the anticipation I am feeling, as I am about to get to meet my firstborn son for the first time face to face. So many people have already testified that nothing can quite describe that moment and that I’ll just have to experience it for myself.

When I look around, I can see new life everywhere. The trees are budding, which means summer is near. My wife, Jill, is beginning to have contractions which means that the birth of our son is near.

In the couple thousand-word post, he discusses the upcoming Easter holiday, quotes Biblical scriptures, and reveals that Jill's labor pains have begun:

From what I’ve learned in birth class (as well as from Jill, who is a student midwife) and from what I am witnessing right now with Jill, labor pains start sporadically and then become more consistent, longer lasting, and stronger the closer we get to the birth of our son. Again, it’s important to remember that we don’t know when he will be born, but we can definitely see the evidence that points to his imminent arrival, whenever that might be. This is the perfect picture of how “end times” events will play out.

Does that mean Baby Dilly is already here? Not at all. In fact, he makes a clear point that the little one is running on Duggar Time. He's taking his sweet moments and will arrive when he is ready.

Now that I’m about to be a dad, I find it quite interesting that Jesus related the end of the world to the event of birth. And it’s easy to relate to because as much as Jill and I want to know when this birth will happen, the day and the hour of baby dilly’s birth is definitely unknown.

We definitely don't know when it'll happen, but it looks like even Mom and Dad are totally lost when it comes to the birth date and time of their firstborn.

Such exciting news! We've been awaiting the big announcement, and Jill has stayed busy in the last few days. But now, it's finally time for the "end times" to get here.

What do you think of Derick's blog post?
