WATCH: Jill Duggar And Derick Dillard Introduce The Newest 19 Kids And Counting Baby In Hospital Video
Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard‘s new baby Israel already had his first photo op, and now he’s the star of his first video!
In a sweet video after his birth straight from the hospital, the 19 Kids And Counting couple introduced their baby boy, born on Monday, April 6, at 11:49pm, to the world.
“Hey everybody, it’s Derick and Jill Dillard, and we’ve got an exciting birth announcement,” Derick says in the clip.
“We’re so excited to announce the birth of our son, Israel David Dillard,” the new mother, holding the newborn, said. “He weighs a whopping 9 pounds, 10 ounces, and he was 23 inches in length.”
“And not everything went as expected,” Jill continued, quoting a Bible verse that she said gave her and Derick encouragement. The new parents were planning a home birth but it turns out something didn’t go according to the couple’s plan.
Baby Israel Dillard will make his TV debut on May 5th on TLC in a special just in time for Mother’s Day.
