The Duggars are back — and full of exciting news! On the new season of ’19 Kids & Counting,’ Jill finally reveals her pregnancy while Jessa prepares for her wedding.
On the Feb. 17 episode of 19 Kids & Counting, Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, start to settle into married life, while the rest of the family get used to not having her around. Both Jim Bob and his wife, Michelle, continue to play major roles in all their children’s lives back at home.
’19 Kids & Counting’ Recap: Jill & Derick Enjoy Alone Time
The time has finally come for Jill and Derick to embark on their new journey — married life. The newlyweds are settling into their new home together and are getting used to the fact that they no longer need chaperones. The best part? Having a quiet house!
Unfortunately, that did not last long. Jill decided to have a few of her little sister’s over for a sleep over, but poort Derick didn’t grow up with little sisters, so this is the perfect opportunity for him to get a small taste of what his father-in-law has been living with. Can you say perfect timing?
When the little girls go to the Dillard house, it was time for dress up. The best part — seeing Derick more than willing to get involved. The kiddies were also treated to chocolate fondue and nail art, all of which Derick gladly participated in.
Jessa Prepares For Her Big Countdown
Now that her big sis has walked down the aisle, it’s time for Jessa to start preparing for her big day with fiance Ben Seewald. The newly engaged couple have just a little over two months to plan their wedding. Hopefully, Jessa learned a lot by seeing her older sister go through with it.
The couple goes back and forth about trying to decide if a wedding budget is the best idea, or to just flat out spend as little as possible. Michelle took some time out to pick the couples brain on what they want and don’t want, but it’s fairly obvious the couple is looking to stay low-key. We’re talking ice cream and hot dogs for all!
The pair quickly realizes that there is a lot to do to pull off this wedding and stay on budget, but they are optimistic they can pull it off.
That is until they go visit their soon-to-be house and find mold has taken over. The home which has been passed down through the Duggar family, is going to need some work.
Home repairs aside, Jessa does take her first step in wedding planning. She was able to narrow down her modest coral bridesmaid dresses for the 10 girls in her bridal party and orders them online.
Jill Reveals Her Big Secret — She’s Pregnant
Jill and Derick decide to unexpectedly drop in on the Duggar family’s bible time, but they’ve got a really good reason.
As soon as the pair sat down, Jill confesses she took something from her mom. Of course, her parents both looked mortified… that is until Derick finishes the confession by revealing that it was a pregnancy test — and it was positive!
It looks like the Duggars are going to be adding even more babies to their massive family.
Michelle said it best, “With 19 kids there is just a lot going on all the time.” These Duggars definitely have a lot going on!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you think Jess and Ben will be able to get the mold problem under control before their wedding? Are you excited to see Jill’s pregnancy unfold? Let us know.
