Jill Duggar has yet to pop out her firstborn child, but that hasn’t stopped TLC from making plans to capitalize on the 19 Kids and Counting star’s labor and delivery! The network announced today that the baby’s birth will be shown during a week-long Mother’s Day program block!
As part of what the network is calling the “Mother of All Weeks,” Jill will be seen huffin’ and puffin’ out her firstborn during a special two-hour episode of ’19 Kids and Counting.’ (Let’s hope she doesn’t squat out the kid while on the toilet, like her sister-in-law, Anna Duggar, did.)
The episode, which will air on Tuesday, May 5, will also feature motherly advice from Jill’s mom, Michelle Duggar. The day before, on May 4, the network will air an additional special that takes a look back at all the births we’ve seen over the years on ’19 Kids and Counting.’
Jill is now a week past her due date, but she and her husband, Derick Dillard have made it clear that their baby has still not arrived. Jill and Derick are expecting a boy, but have not yet announced what they plan to name their son. They have, however, stated that they will likely choose a family name. (Click here to see The Ashley‘s best guesses as to what they will name him, based on Duggar/Dillard family names and history!)
Is anyone else hoping they name the kid Jim Bob?
Jill is planning to give birth at home, with her sister, Jana acting as her birthing coach. A team of midwives will also be there to help bring the baby into the world.
TLC’s “Mother of All Weeks” will air May 3-10 and, in addition to the Jill Duggar birth special, will also include Mother’s-Day-themed episodes of other TLC shows, including Long Island Medium, Kate Plus Eight and My Big Fat Fabulous Life.
Surely Jill must have had the baby by now? She is two weeks past her due date.
Well jill has not had her baby yet so just let it be
Thea just because you don’t support the 19 kids and counting you don’t have to be rude about it. I am a really big fan of 19 kids and counting!!!!!!!!
Anna pooped out her Duggars brat on the potty? Really? I hate these people. Crazy does not even begin to describe them all
Yeah, can someone fill us in here? I’m gonna need to hear more about this story 😀
I’ve heard this happens sometimes, when women didn’t know they were pregnant…. Wait, how does that even happen? Anyway, was the potty birth intentional in this case or accidental?
Its on one of the episodes. Labor was taking forever. She needed to pee and out the baby came. 😀 Apparently they didnt have enough time to move her back to the couch where the whole setup was. At least 6 people crowded into the one tiny bathroom. Not the most hygienic of places.
Haha whoopsie! Thank you 🙂
She thought she only had to go to the restroom – she had no idea she was in labor at the time.
That’s pretty funny! Thanks 🙂
LOLLY I really hope THAT YOU GET PREGNANT SO YOU CAN GO THROUGH THE PAIN . I HOPE THAT IF YOU DO GET PREGNANT I HOPE THAT YOU HAVE A LOT OF KIDS THAT ARE BRATS AND THAT YOU GIVE BIRTH TO YOUR KIDS IN THE FIRST MONTH OF YOUR PREGNANCY. THEN YOUR KIDS HAVE TO SPEND 8months in the hospital. REALLY YOUR MOM GAVE BIRTH TO YOUR . YOU ARE A STUPID BRAT
Of course it will air on mother’s day!! we wouldnt expect Anything different!! Smh .. ratings ratings ratings!
I do not support these ‘people’. Not a chance I’d watch it.
