One is a reality star and newlywed.

The other is a quarterback and Super Bowl champion.

On the surface, Derick Dillard and Aaron Rodgers would appear to have very little in common. But, ironically, it's on the surface that these two have tons in common...

... because they look exactly alike!

Seriously, compare the 19 Kids and Counting star with the Green Bay Packers All-Pro below and see if you can even tell them apart. Can you?

(Hint: That is Dillard, impending father of Jill Duggar's baby, on the left; Rodgers is on the right.)

He's a keeper. In addition to Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald recalling the big moment, her parents Jim Bob and Michelle also speak on the event.

Just a few weeks after becoming Husband and Wife, Jill and Derick Dillard are preparing to become Mother and Father.

The couple is expecting its first child!

Not long after the news went public, Michelle Duggar and Jim Bob Duggar both gushed over the miracle, with the latter sure his son-in-law will be a “wonderful father” and the former simply saying there’s “a lot of joy” around the family these days.

She hasn't even been pregnant for two months, but Jill Dillard (nee Duggar) is already mapping out she plans to welcome her first child into the world next March:

Jill is planning a home birth!

Jill Duggar and Derick

Compared to any 23-year-old who would come to such an important decision so quickly, the pregnant Jill Duggar is in a very good position to make it.

A trained midwife, Jill has helped deliver more than 70 babies already in the U.S. and abroad, and is one of the oldest of 19 Kids (and Counting) on TLC.

With Michelle Duggar guiding her especially, this is a young woman who knows what to expect when she's expecting, and who knows what she wants.

If anything, she was probably more nervous about her first kiss on her wedding day and the stuff that came after that (and clearly worked) than childbirth.

“I think home birth is really special because you are in your own environment,” the expectant parent told People magazine in her new cover story.

19 Kids and Counting star Jill Duggar is pregnant with her first child, wasting little time with her new husband Derick Dillard. Seriously. They wed on June 21!

The religious couple famously saved their first kiss EVER for that day, in accordance with their beliefs. Clearly, they figured out the rest in short order.

From the moment they were introduced by her father Jim Bob, Derick 25, and Jill, 23, felt a connection that grew quickly and powerfully. The rest is history.

Their love story, thanks to their TLC show and the smitten couple's own postings on Instagram, is one that we've been able to follow every step of the way.

What a wonderful trip it's been to join in on, too.

Here, we look back at the Arkansas duo's journey, from that first time on Skype to their first meeting in Nepal, their magical road to the altar and soon, family:

Their First Meeting (Sort Of)!
The Arkansas natives grew up within 45 minutes of each other, but didn't meet until late 2011. Jill recalled when Derick stopped by while caroling with a church group, and not long after, "Derick contacted my dad and asked if he would be a prayer partner during his two-year term in Nepal."

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.

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.

Michelle Duggar has never been shy about expressing her conservative political beliefs, but her recent opposition to an Arkansas law might surprise even her most far-right fans.

The TLC reality star recorded a robocall message for the citizens of Fayetteville, Ark., encouraging them to vote against an anti-discrimination law.

The legislation is designed to outlaw prejudice against transgender individuals with regard to employment, housing, and use of public facilities.

Duggar not only wants to keep current segregation policies in place, she reveals in her call that she refuses to recognize transgender people by their proper gender.

In fact, she informs callers that the new law would allow "men - yes I said men to use women's and girls' restrooms, locker rooms, [and] showers."

It feels like every day is a special day in the Duggar family these days. Or in this case, the Dillard household. Sunday was Jill's one-year Skypiversary!!

Yes ... the former Jill Duggar took to Instagram to commemorate the one-year anniversary of her first-ever Skype session with now-husband Derick Dillard.

Duggar, 23, commemorated the occasion by sharing a photo of herself with her spouse via Instagram. "Celebrating our 'Skypiversary,'" she captioned it.

"One year ago today my husband and I Skyped for the first time!"

This comes on the heels of her little sister Jessa celebrating her 11-monthiversary with her boyfriend, then getting engaged to Ben Seewald that same week.

Can you even handle all of this Duggar relationship bliss?

When it came time to find a mate for life, Jessa Duggar followed her family's advice. She got engaged to Ben Seewald last week, so it clearly worked.

Earlier this year, Jill Duggar married Derick Dillard, having not only taken her dad's approach to dating - sorry, courting - but having him set her up!

Fans of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting know the family's views of love and relationships may seem extreme, but they feel they're onto something.

The Duggars' approach goes go far beyond their rules of chaperoned dates, no hand-holding until you get engaged, and saving your first kiss until marriage.

It's about making a deep connection, and keeping it.

By setting boundaries, establishing accountability and making it a family-wide affair, here are five Duggar Family rules for dating that will make love last:

It's Called COURTING!
Dating means you're shopping around, says Jim Bob Duggar, while courtship is the path toward marriage. Courting is getting to know each other in a group setting, both families spending time together and the couple setting goals together to determine if they are meant to marry or not.

The Duggar Family Quotes

Be available. Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be available when he calls. - Michelle Duggar
