Jill Duggar Is Pregnant?
They were full of questions and so excited as we talked about the pregnancy and how they would get to be involved along the way. And after a baby was born, however, a few days later we started miscarrying. They went on to share the meaning of River Bliss, the name that they had decided on for the baby.
Penny One meeting for the river is tranquil, and here in Arkansas, Rivers are often a serene, beautiful escape in nature. We also like how the river talked about in the Bible, Revelations 22, one through five represents God’s life-giving presence. Our baby doesn’t get to live here with us on Earth but is forever with the source of the river of life in the presence of the Lord.
Jill and Derek continued writing, and we chose Bliss for a middle name because our baby is living in perfect bliss with the Lord and was such a gift that brought immense joy and happiness to us, even though only with us here on Earth for a short time.
The couple, who recently celebrated their seven-year wedding anniversary, shared two sons, six-year-old Israel David, and four-year-old Samuel Scott.
In a Q and a video posted to their YouTube last March, Jill and Derek answered a fan’s question about if they ever have a daughter, will they raise her to not rely on a man? And the pair gave an empowering answer about learning to rely on yourself.
“Yes, I think that’s important. Regardless of whether you have a son or daughter. I think we’d raise both of them to be as independent as possible. We don’t want 30-year-old kids living in our basement not being productive. I think it’s good for their own health, too, and well-being and everything, too. Yeah, we want them to help them identify and I found what they enjoy and what they can do to get there and accomplish whatever it is their goals are.”
