We have to wait until March to meet the next Grand-Duggar—A.K.A. newlyweds Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard’s first child—but we’re already feeling the excitement, as the parents-to-be can’t stop gushing about their bun in the oven!
The 23-year-old recently opened up about her decision to share the news of her pregnancy early in her first trimester—at just 8 weeks—and now she’s dishing on the people she told first!

“My sisters [suspected my pregnancy],” the new Mrs. Dillard confessed.
“Typical sisters are going to ask you questions that no one else asks, like, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool if you got pregnant right away?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, it’d be cool.’ But we were open to whatever. We weren’t preventing anything, and we were just waiting on God’s timing. It’s just a really neat surprise.”
Now that she and Derick have been blessed with a child, they have to make big decisions—like whether or not they want to find out the baby’s gender (they do) and if they’ll allow cameras to film the birth for 19 Kids and Counting (T.B.D., for now).
“Well, we’re still talking about that,” she said with a laugh. “We’ll see.”

With the arrival of “Baby Dilly,” there’s another question on everyone’s minds: Will she follow the lead of her parents and brother Josh and name all her children with same initial?
“We’re still talking about that also,” she giggled. “I don’t think we’re going to do a letter theme, but we might do a different theme. We’ll see. We’re still talking.”
