“19 Kids & Counting” Star Jill Duggar Is Pregnant Just Weeks After Getting Married

19 kids and counting duggar
See what happens when you have sex?!

When 19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard at the end of June, The Ashley made a prediction that Jill would be popping out a kid by Easter 2015….and although The Ashley was kidding, it looks like she was right!

Jill and Derick announced today that, just eight weeks after the got married, they are expecting their first child!

The couple told People that they found out about a month after they got married.

“We were really surprised when we found out because I had taken two negative pregnancy tests previously and my sisters were asking if I was pregnant,” Jill said. “And they’re like, ‘Mom has pregnancy tests upstairs and you could be pregnant so you should take one.’” (Michelle Duggar probably has pregnancy tests stockpiled all over the house! She probably buys those things in bulk over at the Wal-Mart!)

“It was more, like, to prove them wrong, like, ‘I’m not pregnant, and I’m going to show you so’ and well…” Jill said of taking the test.

“I TOLD you were were Fertile Myrtles!”

The couple were shocked to see the test come back positive.

“About 30 days after Jill and Derick got married they gathered everyone in the living room and shared the news,” Jill’s dad, Jim Bob told the magazine. “Everyone was clapping and cheering, and we were in shock, too.”

Jill is now about two months along in her pregnancy and is due in March.

The Ashley now feels bad for Jill’s sister, Jessa, who just announced her engagement earlier this week. Jill totally swooped in and stole her thunder with the pregnancy!

Anyway, Derick said that he and Jill weren’t “trying” to have a baby, but it just happened. (Hey, they waited until their wedding day to have their first kiss, so they were probably ready to explode with hormones!) While they are not opposed to having a jumbo-sized family like Jill’s parents, they aren’t planning for that either.

“As far as our future, we’re not trying to have kids,” Derick said. “We’ll just see what God brings along. It’s exciting.”

“We are open to as many kids as God will give us,” Jill added.

Congrats to Jill and Derick!



  1. The girls should not stay in houses on Dugger property and I feel like it was kind of forced on them. Get away from that father who asks the same intimate questions over and over again. He is a creep.

  2. These ultra-rightwing-women-are-just-for-making-babies-and-taking-care-of-the-man-while-being-subservient types make my skin crawl. They are so wide-eyed innocent and chirpy-cheery on tv, but when you see them on the news and hear the nasty things they say about others, you get the real picture.
    Why would you start taking a pregnancy test two weeks after you get married? Because you’ve been doing the deed BEFORE you signed on the dotted line, and you need to know asap, so you can get the “baby came early” story out in public sooner rather than later.

  3. It makes me LOL when they claim they weren’t trying to get pregnant but unless there’s something physically not right if you have sexy times with out protection most likely you will have a baby! And taking two pregnancy tests within weeks of your wedding night? No not desperate at all…

  4. I think it’s wonderful that they’re having a baby!! Even if it is really early. Sometimes things happen when you least expect them to. That’s how it was for me & my husband with our daughter, we weren’t trying either anymore then it happened. It’s no big deal if you get pregnant right after you get married. People do it all the time. I know they didn’t steal the spotlight from Jessa & Ben’s engagement on purpose. I think they’ll be wonderful parents!!!! Congratulations & Best Wishes Jill & Derick & also Congratulations to Jessa & Ben on the engagement!!!!!

  5. Aisha, hoping that was wrapping you were referring to. I’m still amazed how people say that to. “I wasn’t planning on getting pregnant”. I mean if you don’t use birth control what exactly do you think will happen? To each his own, just call it like it is.

  6. I think age dosent matter if they are happy then that’s all that matters it’s none of mine or anyone else’s business what they choose in life people shouldn’t be so quick to judge this family at least they raise their children and they love them why don’t you find a board about all the parents who abuse and neglect their children and leave a comment stop trying to tear down this happy couple congrats to Jill and Derrick a baby is a true blessing from god I know you two must be very excited!!!

  7. For some reason I really don’t buy that they weren’t trying to have a baby considering it kind of looks like the duggers are marrying out there kids with the purpose that they have more kids. Now don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with people who are financially stable and old enough to really know what they want trying to get pregnant almost right after there married or even if there not married and never want to be, but do want to have a child, having one with someone they know and love. But I mean c’mon these two have know each other for what a year and they’ve only been married for two months, there both also only in there early twenties. They could have at least waited a year to see how they would honestly adjust to each other. Also if they hadn’t been trying for a baby they wouldn’t be having one, and yes I know that sixteen and pregnant is definite proof that that’s not always the case. But again c’mon Jill admitted to have taken two other pregnancy test before so obviously Derick hadn’t been raping his gift each time he gave it to her or she wouldn’t have thought she need to take the pregnancy tests in the fist place. Anyway I’m happy that there happy but mostly kind of sad that there moving so fast because I have the feeling there going to regret it one.

    1. Yeah, but in a world where divorce isn’t allowed, things like “waiting a year to see how you get along” don’t matter. There’s no escape, so might as well start fulfilling your “godly purpose” and crap out as many kids as possible.

      I agree with all your points- but in the world the Duggars live in, none of that matters.

    2. They’re both in their twenties, they’re happy, they’re going to regret it. . .

      There-a place. They’re-they are. Their-possessive, i.e., their car, their cat, their baby.

      People get bent out of shape when you correct their grammar, but honestly, if you said 3+5 is 4, wouldn’t you want to know? Especially if there was money involved? Bad grammar just makes people look uneducated, and makes your message less impactful.

      So, bring on the grammar nazi comments. . .

      1. The only “grammar nazis” are the ones who proofread Hitler’s speeches. Everyone else who feels people should know the difference between there, their, they’re, or your, you’re and YORE, (lol), or when to use I, or me, is just well-read and tired of Americans looking stupid, uneducated, and lazy. Come on, all you sloppy writers, get your shit together for the good ol’ USA!
