Good news, as the old adage goes, has a tendency to travel fast.
Especially with a family as tight-knit, and huge, as the Duggars.
Such was the case with the fact that Jill Duggar is pregnant after just a few weeks of marriage. She and husband Derick Dillard knew they couldn't keep that secret.
They didn't even try. Jill and Derick were busy spreading the word almost as soon as they saw that positive pregnancy test. Her parents? Shocked!
In a good way. "There is a lot of joy," Michelle Duggar gushed.
Jill's father, Jim Bob Duggar, says though he was shocked about the news, he knows the newly-married duo he set up will be wonderful parents.
"Jill has been such a wonderful sister to her brothers and sisters," he says. "She always makes activities for the kids, looks for ways to make a dull project fun."
"And Derick is going to be a wonderful father."
Derick's family is often overshadowed by the Duggars, but mom Cathy, 57, now cancer-free after intensive chemotherapy, was moved to tears.
