We have been watching the Duggar family for years thanks to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who take their 19 children to the reality TV spot. And although many of the Duggar women have caught our attention over the years, Jill Duggar has apparently fascinated fans most. She is married to Derick Dillard, who has created a lot of online drama over the years and has kicked in to count for his hate Twitter activity. Fortunately, fans can keep track of Jill and Derick on social media and through their family blog – and we are all interested in what their small family is doing.
As for the latest news, it seems that everyone thinks that Jill and Derick are planning to adopt their next child. This is what they said.
Jill and Derick currently have 2 children but would love to have more
It’s no secret that the Duggars love children, and Jill and Derick Dillard are no different. The couple currently have two sons, Samuel and Israel, who are 1 and 3 years old respectively. And since Jessa Duggar is currently pregnant, fans have long speculated when Jill will have another baby of her own.
At the moment, it seems that Jill is not pregnant – but we recall that she told ABC News in 2014 (before she was married to Derick) that she wanted to have many children like her famous mother. Jill and Derick, who were engaged at the time, said to ABC: “We both want as many children as God will give us and we’ve talked about adoption. My parents have always cut them out, so we’ll see how [our] fertility is “It seems that the words of adoption came up early for Jill and Derick, which led many to believe that they were a mix of biological and adopted children once they cut the knot.
Jill alluded to the possibility of adoption on Instagram
Jill not only discussed the possibility of adoption years ago, but recently came forward on her Instagram post. She added a photo of her and Derick saw the unplanned film with a pro-life message. “Life is precious regardless of gestation age. Choosing life. If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy and abortion seems to be the only good option, please think twice and ask for help !!” she added.
OK! Magazine notes fans quickly took the comments section to embrace or criticize Jill’s message. As one of her followers wrote: “Do you want to be there to adopt the pregnant mother who forced you to make her own decision and help care for her? Don’t think so.” Jill replied, “Yes,” and everyone believes that she is currently working on adoption plans with Derick for their next little one.
Jill has had issues with pregnancy in the past, too
As to why Jill and Derick might want to adopt now instead of having another biological child, it might have to do with what Jill’s body can handle. We know that the Duggar’s are notorious because they have difficult births, and Jill’s story is no different. People remind us that Jill was working with her first son for almost three days, and hoping she would come home, she was rushed to the hospital after a positive test for B bacteria and seeing signs of fetal distress. In this scenario, she eventually had a C-section, and she chose to have a second C-section for her second son.
The risk of something going wrong for both mother and child increases with each C-section, so maybe Jill and Derick might be looking for adoption. Anyway, we are happy to see if the rumors are true and if another Dillard baby is coming.
