It's pretty safe to say we know a lot about Derick Dillard. Like, probably too much, tbh. But what about the rest of his family? We were wondering if the former Counting On star — who was fired for his transphobic comments on Jazz Jennings — has semi-decent siblings, or if they're just as awful as their Twitter-loving brother. So, obv, we did some investigating. Turns out, the reality TV exile has just one sib, a brother named Dan, 27, and he's slightly less awful. Keep scrolling to learn all about him below!
He's a better-looking version of Derick.
Derick's face has changed quite a bit over the years, but after taking a q̶u̶i̶c̶k̶ s̶c̶a̶n̶ deep dive into Dan's Instagram, it looks like he's remained the same for basically, well, years. Seriously, though, does he age???
He, too, is jobless.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Dan graduated from Arkansas Tech University in 2013 with a degree in Journalism and Public Relations. Most recently, he was a Senior District Executive of Ozark District with the Westark Area Council, but his most recent Instagram post reveals he left that position — whether by choice or by force — earlier this week. Redditors, however, are saying he quit because "Boy Scouts of America dropped the 'boy' and let girls in." We're not sure how true that part is, though…

This past weekend marked my last at this 'happy place' of mine. It is the end of an era for me as Senior District Executive of Ozark District with the Westark Area Council. It has been an honor to work with the tremendous staff and volunteers who I have had the opportunity to serve alongside. #TripleFalls #NoFilter #AllThingsNew
Meanwhile, Derick has been slammed for his lack of career for months. Since his departure from the hit TLC show, the 29-year-old has been begging for money. "Wow truly low to be begging for money right when TLC fires you! Serves you right you bully," one angry fan wrote on Twitter, while another fumed, "I think you're a scam artist and the only reason you're asking for money is because you got fired for making fun of a teenage girl!" Hmm… we'll see if his brother follows suit!
His wife's name is Deena.
They're expecting a baby boy in September.
Dan and Derick's mom, Cathy, revealed on her Instagram that Dan and Deena are expecting a little boy later this year. "And the cake is… BLUE! Yes, Dan & Deena are having a BOY in September! This Mima's ?is full!" So sweet.
Oh, and good news — it doesn't look like Dan's gone on any homophobic Twitter rants recently, unlike his big bro. #Blessed.
