It was only a matter of time before baby Dilly made his big on screen debut. Jill and Derick shared a sweet video featuring their newborn son, Israel David, on the Duggar fan page. Click to watch the cute video!

Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard wasted no time sharing their son Israel David with the world. Baby Dilly was only a few hours old when he made his big video debut. And yes, as expected, he’s absolutely adorable!

Jill Duggar Shows Off Baby Israel In His First Video — Watch

Jill and Derick may have to start looking for an agent for baby Dilly, because he’s already a big hit! The family posted the sweetest video only a few hours after Israel entered the world.

The Duggar’s posted the clip on their Facebook with the caption, “He’s here! Israel David Dillard has made his arrival. He was born at 11:49pm on April 6, 2015. He weighed 9 lbs and 10 ounces and measured 23 inches long. We think he’s adorable! Mom and baby are both doing wonderful. We are so thankful for his safe arrival and look forward to this great new journey called Parenthood!”

In the video we see the happy new family finally relaxing in Jill’s hospital bed, obviously very exhausted from such an exciting night. Derick starts off by saying, “Hey everybody, it’s Derick and Jill Dillard, and we’ve got an exciting birth announcement. We’re so excited to announce the birth of our son, Israel David Dillard.”

Jill then begins to tell the camera, “Not everything went as expected. So we were reminded of the verse that the Bible talks about when ‘Man plans his way but the Lord directs his steps.’ We were encouraged by that. He’s just a handsome little fella and we’d like everybody to stay tuned to TLC. May 5th they’re going to be showing the birth episode as well as things surrounding that.”

Jill’s Birth Plan Was Thrown Out The Window

Jill left out the exact details of what went awry, so we just may have to wait until the episode is aired on TLC in May. The Dillard’s original birth plan was supposed to be an at home birth, but clearly Jill had to deliver her son in the hospital.

We’re just so glad he’s here safe and sound!

HollywoodLifers — do you think Jill and Derick should wait to more than a year to have another child? Let us know your thoughts!
