Jill Duggar Baby Photos: Meet Israel David Dillard!

by at .

The cutest things really do come to those who wait.

Earlier today, Jill Duggar gave birth to her first child, a son named Israel David who Jill and husband Derrick Dillard had to wait extra long to meet.

He arrived a week and a half after his due date.

But safe to say the little tyke was worth it, wouldn't you say?!?

According to People Magazine sources, Jill Duggar and child are both doing well, as evidenced by these new photos from the delivery room.

"We are so thankful for a healthy Mom and baby!" a statement from Jill's famous family read soon after the miracle took place. "Love this sweet baby Israel! We are happy grandparents and we promise more pictures soon!"

The stars, who can see each week when you watch The 19 Kids and Counting online, got married in June 2014; they announced just two months later that they were expecting.

At the time they exchanged vows, Jill and Derrick had only gotten to first base.

They had planned planned a home birth, but baby Israel had other ideas last night: he was delivered in a hospital via natural childbirth.

Right up until Duggar hit the delivery room, she was going on dates with her husband and sharing photos from her exciting experience. 

Heck, as recently as April 4, Derick posted an image of his wife's baby bump at 41 weeks and 4 days. Talk about having patience!

"Congrats to my sister @jillmdillard, and brother-in-law, @derickdillard, on the birth of their beautiful baby boy, Israel David Dillard!" Jessa wrote via Instagram. "Born last night at 11:49pm! 9lbs 10oz & 23in. long!"

We send our very best wishes to the newly-expanded family.
