The 31-year-old television personality welcomed her third child, son Frederick “Freddy” Michael, with husband Derick Dillard on July 7.
July 12 (News) — Jill Duggar is a mother of three.
Duggar shared the news in a post on her website on Monday.
“Friedrich means ‘Peaceful Ruler’ and Michael means ‘Gift of God,'” the star wrote.
“The name Frederick also has a special meaning for us as it’s Derick’s name prefixed with ‘Fre’ to make ‘Fre-derick,'” she added. “Similarly, Derick’s name is a variation of his late father’s name, Rick, which his parents created by adding ‘de’ before Rick.”
Duggar said she gave birth via a planned cesarean section, which had to be postponed because Frederick was premature.
“Both Jill and Frederick are healthy and enjoying the bond while we look forward to bringing him home from the hospital soon!”
Duggar and Dillard married in June 2014 and have two other sons, Israel (7) and Samuel (5). The couple announced in February that they were expecting their third child after a miscarriage in 2021.
Duggar and her family rose to fame thanks to the TLC reality series 19 kids & counting and continued playing later Count on. Duggar is the fourth of 19 children born to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
