The Duggars React to Jill's Pregnancy

The Duggars will soon welcome another member into their growing family. Jill and Derick Dillard, who married two months ago today, just revealed that they are expecting Baby Dilly in March 2015.

"There is a lot of joy," Michelle Duggar, 47, told People Magazine. Michelle has been continually reminding her daughter, who is suffering through severe morning sickness, of the beautiful new life she is nourishing.

"I have said to Jill, 'When you feel sick and so tired, remember you are growing another person inside of you and this is a good reason to be sick,'" Michelle told People. "For me, I would try to sit down and rest whenever I was sick while pregnant. You have to do what you have to do. The end result is so worth it."

Jim Bob Duggar said he is also looking forward to having another grandchild and that he knows Jill and Derick will be great parents.

"Jill has been such a wonderful sister to all of her brothers and sisters," Jim Bob, 49, told People. "She always makes activities for the kids, looks for ways to make a dull project fun.  And Derick is going to be a great father."

Fifteen-year-old Jedidiah Duggar agrees: "I am up for babysitting if they need help. I am so excited for Jill and Derick, and I know they are going to make wonderful parents. Jill has always wanted to be a mom. She is perfect for it. Derick is a wonderful guy; he will be a good dad. He will be amazing."

Derick's mom, Cathy, who nearly missed Jill and Derick's wedding due to intensive chemotherapy treatments, is now cancer-free and ready to be a grandma.

"Oklahoma State is my alma mater," she told People. "This year, they came out with a T-shirt that says 'Real grandmas don't wear pink, they wear orange.'  I plan to get one of those. I am looking forward to every aspect of them having this baby."

In contrast to the Duggars, Cathy has only two children of her own, Derick and Daniel. She was adopted, so this baby will be her third known blood relative.
