Jill Duggar Is Pregnant!

PUBLISHED ON 08/20/2014

Well, that was quick! 19 Kids and Counting stars and newlyweds Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are expecting their first child!

Jill announced her pregnancy in People and says, "We're having a baby! We are so excited."

Jill says that she took several pregnancy tests that came back negative, but after taking one of her mother Michelle Duggar's pregnancy tests, the result was positive. But we're not really surprised — any woman who's given birth to 19 children has to keep only the best and most magical unicorn pregnancy tests in stock.

"It was surreal," Derick says. "We were shocked. Both of us are so excited."

Jim Bob Duggar, Jill's father, also shared in the excitement of their happy announcement.

"About 30 days after Jill and Derick got married they gathered everyone in the living room and shared the news. Everyone was clapping and cheering, and we were in shock too," he said.

Jill and Derick got married in a gigantic ceremony (we're not kidding, there were 1,000 guests present) on June 21 in Springdale, Arkansas.

And if you're a big Duggar fan, you can watch Jill and Derick talk about their baby news in an exclusive video from People below:
