A little dude for the Dillards! Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard are expecting a baby boy, TLC confirmed to Us Weekly on Tuesday, Oct. 21. 

The 19 Kids and Counting star, 23, announced this past August that she is pregnant with her first child. She and Dillard, 25, tied the knot in Arkansas on June 21, 2014.

The fourth-eldest child in the expansive family, Duggar told Us last month that she took three tests to determine if she was pregnant after she suspected that she may be expecting.

"I was thinking that maybe we should take a pregnancy test," she told Us in September. While her first two tests were negative, a third test showed that she is going to be a mother. "We were really surprised when we got that positive test, but of course we were really excited. I think we would have even been less surprised had it come back positive on one of the first tests."

"We were super excited," she told Us of when they learned the news. "We prayed together, and thanked God for this new little life. I was screaming and everything," she laughs. "He was like, 'Don't get too excited! You might stress out the baby or something.' He's so cute. He's so sweet."

Following her older brother Josh Duggar, 26, Jill is the second Duggar child to start her own family. Her little sister Jessa Duggar, 21, got engaged this past August and is planning to marry her love Ben Seewald in November.
