Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard welcomed their first son, Israel David, on April 6, and he's already fitting seamlessly into his large extended family! The very public parents have never been shy about sharing details of their personal life on their hit show, 19 Kids and Counting, or on their social media profiles, so it comes as little surprise that a digital album of Israel's first days at home has been made public.
Jill and Derick uploaded several adorable photos of their newborn son to their website, TheDillardFamily.com, and gave fans an intimate look at their home life with a brand new baby. While we've already seen a few photos from the hospital, the proud parents shared a few more shots of their moments with their son. From a photo of Jill cradling Israel in bed, a portrait with the doctor that delivered their son (seen above), and their departure from the hospital, the new mom and dad want fans to be part of the experience.
While the couple's fans are obviously excited about the newest Duggar edition, there are two people even more thrilled to welcome Israel into the world: his grandparents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar!
"We want to thank everybody for all their support for Jill and Derick," Jim Bob said in a statement on Facebook. His wife joined in, saying, "And for your prayers. What a blessed time this is as we welcomed our new grandbaby, little Israel, into the world. We are just so thankful for our friends and those out there that have been praying for our family. Thank you so much."
But what they're most excited about is how their family will continue to grow! "Four grandkids and counting," Jim Bob said. "Going on 200!"
