Jill Duggar shares new photos of son Samuel: 'So grateful'
UPI News Service, 07/14/2017
Jill Duggar felt "grateful" as she shared new photos online of her baby boy this week.
The 26-year-old reality star posted a photo album with son Samuel on her website Thursday after welcoming the infant with husband Derick Dillard this month.
"We are so grateful to God for the arrival of little Samuel Scott. To see the new baby photo album visit our website," she wrote on Instagram.
Dillard had shared a photo of Samuel last week after Jill gave birth to their son July 8.
"Jill and I are so blessed to welcome our second child, Samuel Scott Dillard!" he captioned the picture. "9 lbs 10 oz and 22 in long! Mom and baby Sam are doing well! Thank you to those who have been supporting us through your prayers and encouragement!"
Duggar and Dillard married in June 2014, and welcomed their first child, son Israel David, the next year. The couple announced Duggar's second pregnancy in December, and later confirmed they were expecting another son.
"The next Dillard baby is a boy! We're so excited," Duggar said in January. "We're really excited about having another son, and I know that Israel and this little one will be best friends."
Duggar and her family came to fame on the TLC series 19 Kids & Counting, and now star on Jill & Jessa: Counting On. Her sister Jessa Duggar welcomed her second son, Henry Wilberforce, with Ben Seewald in February.
"I think it's really awesome that we have two little boys so close together in age," Jessa said of Henry and her elder son, Spurgeon Elliot, in February. "I know they're going to be best friends and love growing up and doing everything together."
