by at . Comments

Jill Duggar is pregnant! Just two months after they tied the knot, she and husband Derick Dillard confirm that they are expecting their first child together!

"We're having a baby!" Jill, of 19 Kids and Counting fame, tells People for its cover story this week, stating the obvious and adding, "We are so excited!"

Jill Duggar Expecting!

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard married June 21 in Springdale, Ark., sharing their first kiss in front of more than 1,000 family and friends on that very day.

The sweet couple's courtship and wedding will be prominently featured on TLC's hit reality show when 19 Kids and Counting returns Tuesday, September 2.

As predicted, they didn't waste time starting a family. They may not have done more than hold hands before marriage, but they figured the rest out fast.

After taking several pregnancy tests that came back negative, Jill was persuaded by her sisters to take one of her mom Michelle Duggar's tests.

Why not, she said, and off she went to try another.

That effort, while she and Derick were visiting the Duggar family home recently, returned a very different result. A very different and positive result.

"It was surreal," says Derick, 25, of the moment he realized he and Jill, 23, would be parents early next year. "We were shocked. Both of us are so excited."

The happy couple, who are due in March, first broke the news to her giant family, of course, assembling her many siblings in the living room for the reveal.

"About 30 days after Jill and Derick got married they gathered everyone and shared the news," her father Jim Bob Duggar says. "We were in shock too."

"Everyone in the family was clapping and cheering."

It's been an exciting month for the Arkansas family, which also saw Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald engaged after an 11-month courtship of their own.

Congratulations to the cute, expectant couple!!
