Jill Duggar’s son Israel had his 4th birthday party on Saturday, April 6, and the whole family turned out to celebrate — except his dad, Derick Dillard! When Israel’s grandmother Michelle and aunt Anna posted photos from the weekend celebration, fans couldn’t help but wonder why the former Counting On star wasn’t there.
