Fans of "19 Kids and Counting" knew that it would not take long for this day to get here. On Wednesday, People shared the news that Jill Duggar Dillard and Derick Dillard are expecting their first child. Jill shared the news today that they are having a baby and are really excited about it all.

This couple just got married on Jun 21. They didn't even share their first kiss until the day they tied the knot so it is obvious that they didn't get pregnant until they were already married. That means that it happened right away for Jill and without months of trying like some people deal with when wanting to have a baby.

Jill shared that she actually took several tests that were negative at first, but then she borrowed one of her mom's and it came back positive. It looks like things are great for Jill and Derick already. She is due to have her new baby in March. This does show that it didn't take long at all for this couple.

Her dad Jim Bob shared that the couple told them the news about 30 days after the wedding. Of course they have kept it a secret until now. Michelle and Jim Bob have been honest about the fact that they want more kids, but it hasn't happened for them. They should be happy to have another grand baby on the way. Jessa Duggar is now engaged to get married to Ben Seewald.

Jill has been on her Twitter all morning. She hasn't spoken out about the pregnancy yet, but has been retweeting articles from several news sources that shared about her pregnancy. Hopefully now that the news is out she will start letting fans in on how things are going for this "19 Kids and Counting" star and her baby on the way.
