Baby news from the Duggar family never really surprises those who follow them. They're the family behind the hit TLC show, '19 Kids and Counting' after all. While Duggar fans were always used to mom Michelle announcing yet another pregnancy, now that the Duggar kids are growing up, we just never know who is going to be entering parenthood next. In a People article dated Weds. Aug. 20, Jill Duggar revealed that she and husband Derick Dillard are expecting their first child.

"We're having a baby!" Jill tells PEOPLE exclusively. "We are so excited."

Jill, 23, and Derick, 25, just exchanged their vows on June 21, but as part of the Duggar family, it seems pretty standard that they'd be eager to take that next step.

'19 Kids and Counting' viewers are still looking forward to watching the couples' nuptials on TLC on Sept. 2. The Christian couple who shared their first kiss for their wedding day have been enjoying married life, but they won't be enjoying it alone for long.

Jill and Derick who are due in March shared their news with their family about a month after their wedding.

The newlywed had taken several pregnancy tests, but they came back negative. Her sisters talked her into taking one of her mom's tests while she and Derick were there visiting. This test result was positive.

"About 30 days after Jill and Derick got married they gathered everyone in the living room and shared the news," Jim Bob, 49, tells PEOPLE. "Everyone was clapping and cheering, and we were in shock, too."

"It was surreal," says Derick. "We were shocked. Both of us are so excited."

Jill and Derick aren't the only ones who recently shared some life-changing news. Jill's little sister Jessa, 21, just confirmed that she's engaged to Ben Seewald.

With another Duggar wedding in the works and another grandchild for JimBob and Michelle, it's safe to say that '19 Kids and Counting' watchers are going to have some eventful episodes to look forward to.

Will it be a girl or a boy for Jill and Derick? Do you have any name ideas? Do you think they'll stick with a certain letter for all their babies like JimBob and Michelle did?
