Jill Duggar Announces Birth of Another Family Baby!

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are already parents to Israel and Samuel, and have taught their boys all about “God’s plan for sex” using a hate-filled children’s book.

It turns out that this fundamentalist take on sex education came just in time, because the Dillard family had another baby on the way.

Now, Jill has gleefully announced, the new baby has been born.

“So excited for another Dillard baby!! …” Jill wrote on Instagram beside a black-and-white photo of the newborn.

The baby, of course, is not hers.

Jill’s post continued: “Congrats @deena.dillard and @justdand.”

Those are Denna and Dan Dillard, her in-laws through her husband, Derick.

She also shared her nephew’s name, writing: “We can’t wait to meet baby Jax!”

Jill concluded her congratulatory post with the hashtags: “#firstDillardcousin #jaxonmichaeldillard”

Jax’s mom also had some happy words to share.

“We are so excited to introduce Jaxon Michael Dillard to the world,” Deena writes on Instagram.

“He came at 9:11pm on Sept 5th,” Deena shares. “He weighs 6lbs 7oz and is 19 inches long.”

“He’s absolutely perfect in every way,” Deena gushes. Awww!

“During our skin to skin time,” Deena adds. “@justdand prayed the sweetest prayer of thanksgiving and blessing over our little family.”

“We are so grateful for God’s sweet blessing of Baby Jax,” Deena concludes.

Not content to write an Instagram post, Jill also took to her family blog to congratulate Deena and Dan.

“We are so excited for Dan and Deena (Derick’s brother and sister-in-law) on their new arrival!” Jill writes.

“Israel and Samuel are thrilled to have their first Dillard cousin,” Jill adds. “And we are so excited to have our first Dillard nephew!”

Jill reveals that they haven’t seen little Jax in person yet, but writes: “We all look forward to meeting him soon!”

“Y’all are such great parents already and we are so happy for you,” Jill writes to the new parents. “Welcome to this wonderful parenting journey!”

Jill and Derick and Deena and Dan are no strangers to congratulating each other.

“I would like to wish my sister-in-law @jillmdillard the happiest of birthdays!” Deena wrote on Jill’s birthday, back in May.

Though Derick’s bigoted attacks had gotten the couple in trouble, Deena sang Jill’s praises, writing: “She is a wonderful mother who loves Jesus so much!”

Deena even praised Jill and Derick’s missionary work, adding: “She’s even willing to raise her kiddos in the most challenging conditions in order to bring the Gospel to the nations.”

“We are blessed to know her,” Deena concluded at the time.

Derick and Jill are controversial, even compared to other Duggar family couples.

Their missionary work raised some eyebrows from fans who are concerned about their parenting — and from others who want to know why the couple is always begging fans for cash.

Derick’s transphobic attacks on fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings were not only despicable (what grown man tweets attacks on a teenage girl?), but ended the couple’s reality television career.

A lot of fans — even those who genuinely like Derick and Jill despite everything — aren’t confident that they know what they’re doing when it comes to raising children.

But it’s nice to see them celebrate a normal family milestone. They have their very first Dillard nibling! Maybe their kids will be close with Jax.

Audrey Roloff Shares Ember’s Birth Story, Keeps It Very Real

Audrey Roloff is nothing if not an open book.

The former Little People, Big World cast member talks often about her faith and her family and how the two nearly always intertwine.

The mother of one also talks about parenthood on a frequent basis, ever since welcoming daughter Ember into the world in September of 2017.

Now, in a very personal and impressive blog post, Audrey has opened way up about her actual birthing experience.

It's a bit graphic in detail and you can read the full entry HERE.

But we've shared a handful of excerpts below in order to help Audrey relay her experience to the fans and followers who are either interested or who may even benefit from this kind of information…

1. This is How Audrey Opened Her Lengthy Post:

Audrey in labor
I am just now finally getting around to sharing her birth story. WOW! It has taken me an entire year to finish it. Sigh. Guess that’s just reality as a new mom, going through two remodels, writing our first book, keeping always more and beating50percent a float, while trying to maintain sanity and some resemblance of a social life. The past year has been exhausting, thrilling, tearful, and full of treasured moments. But perhaps the most treasured moment was September 10th, 2017

2. I Will Not Be Sugar Coating the Messy Reality of Birth…

On the day of embers birth
So Audrey warned, prior to getting into said details as follows: “By the time I was 10 days overdue, I was trying whatever the internet suggested about naturally inducing labor. Pineapple, spicy food, bouncing on the ball, taking baths, long walks, raspberry leaf tea, acupuncture, and sex, but still no baby. I remember reading comments on social media, and even receiving texts from friends, who had some opinions about my desire to wait for our baby to come naturally… Of course. I would not put our baby in danger if I did indeed need to be medically induced. But I also knew lots of women who were impatiently or unnecessarily induced early, and I wanted to avoid that. So I kept surrendering and trusting in God’s timing for our daughters birth.”

3. She’s Finally on the Way!

Showing off bend
“I woke up at 2:30 am to what I thought was just intense cramping. I had experienced some pretty intense cramping the past couple of nights so I didn’t think too much of it at first, but after a few minutes I quickly realized this was different. MUCH different. This was the blinding ambush. IT WAS TIME!!! I reached over into my nightstand drawer and grabbed a sharpie to write my life mantra on my arm – ALWAYS MORE. I knew that this day, more than any other day, I needed to be reminded that I ALWAYS had MORE strength, endurance, and hope through Christ.”

4. What They Decided:

“Jeremy and I wanted our labor and delivery experience to be a calm, low stress, and intimate experience between the two of us. That meant no family, friends, or cameras in the delivery room. We wanted to bring our daughter into the world together without having to think or worry about anything or anyone else. Just Jeremy and I, intimately experiencing the most defining moment of our lives together.”

5. More Specifics:

“Our birth plan was essentially to have a low-intervention, unmedicated birth at the hospital with the help of our doula Echo, essential oils, prayer, and a jammin’ Spotify playlist.”11

6. Why Did She Opt for an Unmedicated Birth?

Strong audrey
“I didn’t want labor to solely be something I went through, while Jeremy watched from a chair. I wanted for him to be an active participant. I wanted for him to feel needed and important during the whole process – and he was. Laboring with Jeremy was was the most intimate, unifying, God-empowering, thing we have ever done together.”

Chelsea Houska: Has She Given Birth to Baby #3?!

Chelsea Houska might the most private of all the Teen Moms, but with 5.3 million followers on Instagram and another 1.8 million on Twitter, it’s not easy for her to keep secrets.

Chelsea’s fans follow her every move, and when she goes silent on social media — however briefly — they immediately begin to suspect something is up.

Houska is pregnant with her third child, and when she went a few hours without posting yesterday — as human beings with jobs and social lives tend to — many jumped to the conclusion that she had gone into labor.

That may seem a bit extreme, but such is the life of a reality star in 2018.

The cameras might stop rolling between seasons, but with a web presence that massive, you’re always in the spotlight.

The speculation started innocently enough, with one fan tweeting:

“@ChelseaHouska hasn’t been tweeting too much lately. Baby time?”

This led to the creation of a subreddit with the title “Chelsea Has Been Quiet On Social Media – Think She Had Her Baby?”

Of course, it wasn’t just Chelsea’s digital silence that led fans to the conclusion that she’s in labor.

Houska’s due date is fast approaching and she delivered her first two children ahead of schedule.

She recently tweeted that she had reached the “over it” stage of her pregnancy, which led some to the conclusion that she expected to deliver soon.

On top of that, it would make sense for Houska to keep the big news to herself until after she’s home from the hospital.

Chelsea has had scary encounters with fans in the past, which is one of the reasons she keeps a lower profile than her co-stars.

Ironically, that move has led to increased scrutiny of her personal life.

In other words, while it was a bit crazy for fans to just assume Chelsea was in labor, we can see the thinking that led to that conclusion.

Alas, it seems all the words of congratulations were a bit premature.

“I can promise everyone that whenever I AM in labor…nobody will know..and there def won’t be posts and silly little articles about it,” Chelsea tweeted last night.

But fear not, Chelsea obsessives:

We’ll keep an eye on the situation to ensure that when Chelse does welcome her third child, we’ll have a silly little article about it ASAP.

Joy-Anna Duggar Opens Up About Difficult Child Birth: I Could Have Died!

It’s been five months since Joy-Anna Duggar welcomed her first child.

At the time, it was reported that the birth did not go according to plan, and Joy-Anna was rushed to a nearby hospital, despite her intention to deliver the baby at home.

It’s not the first time that a Duggar woman was forced to abandon her plans for a homebirth, but Joy-Anna’s case sparked greater interest among fans than those of her older sisters,

In the corners of the internet that are devoted to all things Duggar, fans speculated that Joy-Anna’s delivery went seriously awry.

There were rumors that Jill Duggar had served as midwife, even though she lacks the proper qualifications for the job.

Some even went so far as to claim that Joy nearly lost her life.

On tonight’s episode of Counting On, Joy-Anna will open about the complicated delivery and share previously undisclosed information with her many curious fans.

The episode finds Joy-Anna and her husband, Austin Forsyth, meeting with their midwife in the weeks before Joy-Anna gave birth.

“I want to have all the options available, but I’m not sure,” says at one point.

“We want a home birth, we’re going to try, but we’re not going to risk mom and baby’s life,” says Austin.

“I’m just having to remind myself not to let the fears and anxiety things take over and just prepare as best as I can and be flexible at the same time,” a very anxious-sounding Joy remarks.

Yes, it seems that Joy-Anna had her doubts about a homebirth from the very start.

Asked by producers for her feelings on the situation, Joy had this to say:

“My thoughts right now? If you ask me, I mean, they change. Sometimes I’m like, ‘I’m ready for this, I can do this!’ And then sometimes I’m like, ‘Why am I doing this?’

“It changes. But right now, I’m excited and I’m ready and I want to have this baby as soon as it’s ready to come out.”

She added:

“I really wanted to at least try it, and we’re only about 30 minutes from the hospital, so it’s not too bad in case of an emergency or a change of plans.

“[I’m feeling] somewhat nervous, trying not to be scared, but just prepared.

“I know that it’s going to painful, there’s going to be a lot of emotions, but I know Austin is going to be there to support me.”

The bad news is, the homebirthing option proved to not be viable and Joy-Anna had to be rushed to a hospital.

The good news is, once she was there, she delivered a happy, healthy baby boy.

These days, Joy is loving new motherhood, and baby Gideon is getting bigger by the day.

Woman Gives Birth in Chick-Fil-A, Earns Baby Free Nuggets for Life

A child born inside a San Antonio-area Chick-Fil-A this week may very well be spending a lot of time in this establishment as she gets older.

Allow us to explain…

mim, kid

On Tuesday night, a woman named Falon Griffin started to feel intense contractions and therefore headed to University Hospital with her husband, Robert.

Prior to their arrival, though, the couple met a family friend in the parking lot of a Chick-Fil-A in order to drop off their two oldest daughters while Falon went and gave birth.

But the mother-to-be felt a strong urge to use the bathroom there, knocking on the door of the closed restaurant and convincing an employee to let her in.

“I didn’t know I was going to have a baby in there! I was going to the restroom,” Falon said afterward to KSAT-TV.

Indeed, not long after entering the stall, Falon knew she wasn’t going to make it to the hospital.

Her baby girl was on the way!

dad, kid

“I’m about to dial 911, I open the door and she’s just screaming,” said Brenda Enriquez, the Chick-Fil-A store director who was on the premises at the time.

Enriquez proceeded to grab some towels, scream for Robert Griffin and tell him to go to work. He’d have to deliver his own child.

“I looked at her and said, ‘We’re going to do it right here, right now,'” Robert said.

Falon said her and her baby, who the couple named Gracelyn, were considered high-risk throughout her pregnancy. So she was understandably nervous.

“I’m in excruciating pain. He’s not skilled. I don’t know what’s about to happen right now. I don’t know if she’s going to come out alive,” Falon recounts of her feelings during labor.

Robert, however, was up for the task… and then some.

Not only did he deliver his third kid safely, he did so after a very scary moment that could have resulted in her death.

“I stopped her at her shoulders because I saw what looked to be a white collar around her neck, and it was the cord that had been wrapped around her neck twice,” Robert says.

Yet he managed to successfully unwrap it and bring his daughter into the world in one, healthy piece.

“All I cared about at the end of the day was the baby was breathing, and by the time they [first responders] arrived, she was pink, thankfully for those blankets for keeping her warm,” Falon says.

EMS arrived about 10 minutes after Gracelyn was born and transported mother and baby to the hospital.

But that isn’t where this amazing story ends, not quite.

Gracelyn will now have Chick-Fil-A for life, the chain has announed, at no cost — and she’s guaranteed her first job at age 14!

The franchise owners are already helping plan her first birthday party at their restaurant as well.

Talk about a lucky little nugget!
