Jill Duggar, known for her film “19 Kids and Counting” is in labour and her husband Derick Dillard has posted a photo in instagram on Saturday showing fans that the pair are expecting their first child but the chalkboard in her hands shows “41 Weeks, 4 Days.” Dick added the caption, “Still waiting to meet our little guy. Maybe we’ll have an Easter baby! #Jillmdillard #babydilly.”

After prolonged rumours, Jill revealed on social media earlier this week that she was having Braxton Hicks contractions. But these contractions turned out to be false labor pains.
But Derick kept fans speculating still posting an entry in his blog DillardFamily.com, saying:
“I can’t even describe right now the anticipation I am feeling, as I am about to get to meet my firstborn son for the first time face to face…So many people have already testified that nothing can quite described that moment and that I’ll just have to experience it for myself.”
Awaiting baby Dilly, TLC wants to raise to the occasion with a special on Jill’s birth in a two-hour “19 Kids and Counting” event on May 5. Besides the “highly anticipated birth of Jill and Derick Dillard’s baby,” fans will also get Duggar matriarch Michelle Duggar’s “best motherly advice” in the episode.
On April 1, Josh Digger pulled out a prank on April Fools’ Day saying the Jill is expecting twins, with a hashtag #AprilFools to the post. Still, it received wild queries from some fans.
“Ok, wasn’t expecting that. Congrats guys. I’m happy for you,” one fan said while another said, “Twin girls, right?” Another Twitter user was sombre to ask, “Sorry to bother you Josh but did they have their baby and did really have twins?”
Soon Jill clarified that it would be aboy. “Getting some things done while anticipating the arrival of our little man any day!” Jill posted on Instragram.
Jill was initially due to give birth to her son on March 24 but now she believes the due date will be April 5. On April 3, she posted on Instagram: “Out to lunch… maybe this spicy Mexican food will make the baby come! Only Braxton Hicks contractions…”
