Jill Duggar Reveals Name of Second Baby Boy!

by at .  Updated at .

New, headline-grabbing revelations about members of the Duggar family seem to be surfacing multiple times a day lately.

We suppose it makes sense, considering reality TV's most controversial stars are on the cusp of their return to reality TV.

The Duggars are the midst of promoting the upcoming fourth season of Counting On, which premieres June 12 on TLC.

Still, it's amazing that one family can generate so much fresh gossip. Of course, there are by definition a lot of opportunities.

It helps when said family is the size of the Duggar clan.

Just last week we learned that Joy-Anna Duggar married Austin Forsyth in a massively-attended ceremony in Springdale, Arkansas.

(Naturally, the wedding will provide the basis for the Counting On season premiere, and the PR blitz is in FULL effect.)

That same weekend, the family revealed that Joseph Duggar had gotten engaged to Kendra Caldwell - at Joy's wedding.

(The only thing Counting On viewers love more than a wedding is the build-up to a wedding ... and this storyline has both!)

Really, all the Dugs needed to really work their fans into a frenzy for the big fourth season premiere was a perfectly-timed birth.

Unfortunately, uteruses aren't controlled by network execs or Jim Bob (yet ... give it time), so the promo team will be forced to settle for ...

A premature name-reveal!

Next best thing, right?

Yes, even though their second child will likely still need a couple more weeks to gestate, we know what the littlest Duggar shall be named.

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have decided to share their forthcoming bundle of joy's moniker with the legion of Duggar obsessives.

If you were hoping for another off-the-beaten path Duggar handle like Israel of Spurgeon, we're afraid you might be a little disappointed.

Jill dropped the unexpected bombshell with the following post on their personal website moments ago.

"We are so excited to announce the name of Baby Dillard #2! Samuel Scott Dillard," she wrote.

"We can't wait to welcome him to the world and have him join our family very soon!"

Yes, Samuel Scott.

So they're sticking with the Biblical theme, but it's considerably less quirky name than the one they chose for little Sammy's older brother, Izzy.

Israel David Dillard was born two years ago now; Jessa Duggar's children Spurgeon Elliot and Henry Wilberforce soon followed.

It's unusual for Duggars to reveal their kids' names ahead of the birth, but who says you have to wait for a kid to be born for them to start earning.

The Duggars are old-fashioned about everything, and that includes child labor laws, friend-o.

Now good put on your most durable overalls or your longest denim skirt and share this news with the masses the way God intended:

Via Twitter.

Then, when you're done, follow the link to watch Counting On online to get caught up in time for season premiere Monday.

There should be another 18 or so Duggar news items for you bone up on by then. Or maybe even 19 ... and counting?
