Jill Duggar Reveals Baby's Gender: It's A ...

by at .  Updated at .

It's barely been a month at this point since we first learned that Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are expecting their second child.

Now, we've already learned the gender of the new little baby! Jill's due this summer (July, to be exact) and she'll be having a ...

 ... a boy! A boy!

IT'S A BOY!

How exciting, right? Jill and Derick are already parents to Israel Dillard, who was born in April of 2015, so they've got plenty of experience.

The Dillards revealed the gender exclusively to People with a sweet little photo of the whole family holding up a cute baby boy's outfit:

A blue shirt with orange cargo pants.

Very sweet. That was the reveal to the public, at least. For the family, they set up a scavenger hunt (a Duggar staple) for Jill's younger siblings.

It's all so sweet, but then again, we knew that when Jill and Derick first announced the pregnancy after months of speculation.

"We are so excited to be expecting Dillard baby #2!" they said.

"Children really are a wonderful blessing from God."

"Having Israel has been such a delight to us that we know a second sweet baby will only continue to add joy to our family," they went on.

"We are thankful to God for this sweet child and we cannot wait to see her or him face to face!" Jill and Derick said in their announcement.

Maybe they'll see a "her" next time around with #3?

Or number four. Or number five.

You get where we're going with this.

If Jill has even half the amount of children her mother Michelle ended up havin, she's bound to see a "her" in there somewhere. 

Just the law of averages, right?

Jill and Derick have also spoken about adopting, which could improve their odds of adding a girl as well. Another bit of sweetness for you:

When Jill's brand new little boy is born in July, he'll not only have a big brother, but he'll have a cousin very close in age to play with.

Jessa Duggar's all set to give birth to her second child - whose gender she knows, but has not revealed to the public - any minute now!

Over the weekend, Jessa, the wife of Ben Seewald, shared a photo of her baby bump and announced that she was 39 weeks pregnant.

In just a few weeks at the very most, the Duggars will have one more family member - the seventh grandchild for Jim Bob and Michelle.

As we said before, Jessa's kept quiet on whether she's having a boy or a girl, so we'll have to wait a little longer on that gender reveal.

But enough about the Seewalds, for now, because she has to share the spotlight with her older sister, at least for the next couple of days.

Let's all congratulate Jill on her sure-to-be precious baby boy! For all that they've endured, she and Derick seem to be terrific parents.

Best wishes for her and her growing family.
