19 Kids and Counting Season 15 Episode 1 Recap: Jill Duggar Has a Secret!

by at .  Updated at .

The Duggars are back on TLC, and Jill had a pretty big bombshell to drop on her enormous family on last night's 19 Kids and Counting Season 15 Episode 1.

What in the world do you think that could possibly be?

Picking up where we left off last fall, 19 Kids and Counting Season 15 Episode 1 kicked off the latest run of fresh episodes for reality TV's largest family.

The premiere opened just a few weeks after Jill Duggar, 23, became Jill Dillard, and with Jessa Duggar, 22, preparing to wed Ben Seewald shortly.

Exciting times in Springdale, Arkansas, people.

"Married life is awesome," Derick Dillard, 25, told the cameras when he took a rare break from kissing Jill. "She's my best friend; we love being married."

With the exception of cooking too much and speaking too loudly (products of the environment she grew up in), Jill Duggar was loving life with Derick.

That doesn't mean she didn't miss the kids, of course, so Jill invited Johannah, 9, Jennifer, 7, Jordyn, 6, and Josie, 5, over to their house for a sleepover.

Derick admitted the experience gave him new respect for Jim Bob Duggar for being able to handle nine daughters and hoped to live up to the standard.

He'll have his chance to try soon enough.

Segue alert! Crashing Bible study at the family's house, Jill revealed to her mother Michelle Duggar, "Yesterday I kinda took something. Stole something."

Of course, what she took were pregnancy tests from her mother's bathroom cabinet ... and the third one came back positive. Jill Dillard is expecting!!

The big news came one day before the Dillards' one-month anniversary, and before their entire relationship had even reached the one-year milestone.

Guess they figured "it" out.

"If that's God's plan, I can see ourselves with 19 children," Derick said, and if you watch 19 Kids and Counting online, there's no doubting his sincerity.

So far, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have three grandchildren, all belonging to first-born Josh. He and Anna Duggar are also pregnant right now.

That will make five by the end of 2015, and it will be interesting to see if they reach the century mark (would take "only" 5.26 kids per kid) in their lifetime.

While Jana Duggar is definitely lagging (through no fault of her own) we don't expect Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald to wait long in adding to the tally.

Jessa is about as far from Vanderpump Rules' Scheana Marie as can be when it comes to wedding planning. She kept her affair as basic as possible.

This family knows how to stretch a dollar, and with the soon-to-be Seewalds needing somewhere to live as well as a wedding, it makes a lot of sense.

Courtesy of Grandma Duggar, they have a small house they can rent - the same place Josh and Anna Duggar moved into when they first got married.

They spent five years there before moving into a home of their own, so the place should suit Jessa and Ben just fine ... if they clean up all that mold.

Jill and Derick got the bigger house in Jim Bob's portfolio because it's closer to Derick's work at Walmart, but Jessa's not bitter about that in the least.

All she wants to do is marry Ben Seewald and possibly consummate the marriage at the church afterward. That's one of our favorite rumors of all time.

Anyway, what did you think of the premiere? What are you most looking forward to seeing this season? Hit the comments below to discuss all things Duggar.
