"Baby Dilly" will be the fourth grandchild in the family and the first child for Jill and Derick.

Fans of the show are already excited on how everything will turn out for the Duggar's particularly with Jill's pregnancy. Most likely, there will be baby showers, shopping sprees and one-on-one advice segments from the adults.
