Jill Duggar & Derick Dillard Meet Baby Spurgeon in New Counting On Preview!

by at .

It's been six months since Jessa Duggar gave birth to her first son, the uniquely-named Spurgeon Seewald.

At the time, Jessa's beloved sister Jill Duggar was performing missionary work in Central America with her husband and child.

Fortunately, TLC cameras were on hand to capture the moment when the Seewalds took a trip south of the border, and Jill and Derick Dillard finally got to meet their well-traveled new nephew.

"We had seen Spurgeon on video conference, but this is the first time we got to meet him," Derick tells the camera at one point.

"I got to pick him up. He's a solid guy, and he's just really a chill baby, and he seems like a happy baby. Just a special time to get to hold him."

Chill, indeed!

In fact, Jessa says lil Spurge is so laid-back he handled his first flight better than a traveling salesman who spent his entire layover at the airport bar.

"He did pretty good — he slept on both flights the majority of the time," she says. "He was awake for just a little bit."

"He just sleeps whenever. He doesn't have a whole on his agenda for the day usually," Ben adds awkwardly. "Just like, eat, sleep..."

"The drive to meet Jill and Izzy seemed really long," Jessa ovserves, basically saying what we were all thinking about the cringe-worthy in-law small talk.

Of course, it's not the conversation in this clip that'll have Duggar obsessives talking.

Rather, it's Derick Dillard's gaunt appearance - already a frequent source of controversy in recent months - that's likely to gain the most attention.

Maybe Der's just dieting. Maybe the spicy Central American cuisine doesn't agree with him. Maybe belonging to the same family as Josh Duggar is slowly sucking his soul from his body.

We may never know.

What we do know, however, is that you can watch Jill and Jessa: Counting On online at TV Fanatic to get caught up in time for tonight's reunion episode.
