19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar posted never-before-seen photos of her baby son Israel Dillard on Tuesday, June 9, days after she sat down with Fox News to discuss her brother Josh‘s molestation of her and three of her sisters when she was a child.

The proud mom, 24, who broke her silence via social media on Sunday to wish her little boy a “happy 2-month-birthday,” posted more images of the tot via the Dillard family blog. The adorable snaps feature little Israel smiling in his swaddle, wearing a cute monkey towel after a bath, and sleeping with his hands curled up inside baby mittens.
Duggar appears totally at ease with her little one at home, resting her arm against his chin in one mommy-son photo.
Her latest social media updates come in light of her brother Josh’s molestation scandal, which was directly addressed by the Duggar family last week on The Kelly File. Family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar revealed that his eldest son confessed at 14 that he had “improperly touched” some of his sisters while they were sleeping. The family implemented protective measures, which they referred to as “safeguards,” to prevent future instances like this from happening.
“Locks on the doors,” Jill elaborated in part two of Megyn Kelly‘s special. “You know, everybody’s in bed. Girls in the girls’ room. Boys in the boys’ room — as a mother now I look back, and I think, you know, my parents did such an amazing job for me.”
She added, “I hope I can set up the same safeguards in my family that they did.”
The sisters said they could care less about returning to reality TV. “Life goes on, really. We’re not a TV family,” pregnant Jessa explained. “We’re a family that just happens to be on TV… We’re all in harmony as a family,” she said. “And we love each other like crazy.”
