Now that Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have announced their engagement, everyone wants to know how many kids they plan on having together. Jill has opened up about her plans of being a mom, and has even revealed that she and Derick discussed adopting in the future. How exciting!
Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard Want Lots Of Babies
First come the wedding bells, then come the baby cries!
“Both of us want as many kids as God will give us,” Jill told Us Weekly. “And we’ve talked about adoption.”
Wow! Not only will Jill and Derick have their own biological children, but they also plan on expanding their family with children that are in need of a home. That is so amazing!
Jill also mentioned that there is no limit to how many children she will have.
“My parents have kept popping them out so we’ll see how [our] fertility is!” she joked.
Jill & Derick Planning A Summer Wedding
The newly engaged couple spent the first three months of their relationship communicating solely through Skype, and once they were finally able to meet they had to follow the strict courtship rules of Jill’s parents, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar.
However, now that they are engaged, they are allowed to take their relationship one step further — which means they are allowed to hold hands. Jill is still saving her first kiss with Derick for their wedding day though, so of course plans are set in motion to make that happen as soon as possible. As of now, the Duggar-Dillard wedding is planned for Summer 2014 — and Jill promises it will be a huge ordeal!
“I think it’ll probably be a Duggar-sized wedding with lots of friends and lots of family, and everything centered on God,” Jill shared with the magazine. “We’re looking forward to it!”
Congrats again to Jill and Derick on their happy engagement!
