Jill Duggar, daughter of Bob and Michelle Duggar from the reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, celebrated Christmas with her family and shared with the world that she and her husband, Derrick are thankful for their baby that’s on the way.
On Christmas Day, Jill, 23, posted a photo on Instagram of her baby bump wrapped up like a present. Jill’s wrapped baby bump had a note that read: “To: Jill & Derrick, From: God.”
Jill captioned the photo on Instagram, “Merry Christmas from the Dillard’s! As we rejoice in the celebrations around the birth of Jesus Christ, we thank God for our precious little gift! “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
On June 21st, Jill and Derrick got married in Springdale, Arkansas in front of 1,000 guests, including family and friends. Jill and Derrick met through Jill’s father, Bob Duggar and announced earlier this year that they’re expecting their first baby, a boy, in March 2015.
This past year the Duggar family has been the subject of much controversy because of their pro-life and Christian views. In fact, in November the liberal website Change.org organized a petition to pressure TLC to cancel “19 Kids and Counting” and gathered over 180,000 names. They accused the Duggar family of “using their fame to promote discrimination, hate, and fear-mongering” and criticized Jessa Duggar’s comment on Instagram comparing abortion to the Holocaust.

However, their petition to cancel the popular reality show was unsuccessful and Jim Bob Duggar said it just gave them “more exposure.” As LifeNews previously reported, this isn’t the first time a Duggar has spoken out against the abortion holocaust. In 2013, during the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit, Jim Bob Duggar said, “We have since 1973 (when Roe v. Wade was decided) had 55 million abortions, so what we have going on is a baby holocaust.”
