Back in 2017, Derick Dillard was fired from Counting On after launching a bigoted tirade against a fellow TLC star on social media.
Shortly thereafter, his wife, Jill Duggar, quit the show, thus leaving the Dillard clan with no apparent source of income.
These days, Derick is planning to attend law school, but fans are understandably curious about how he and Jill plan to support their two sons while he begins the very lengthy process of becoming an attorney.
Now, it looks as though we may have our answer.
Jump into the gallery below to learn the surprising secret behind Jill's financial comeback.
In many respects, Jill is as traditional as her fundamentalist parents. But in one important way, she's very much a woman of the 21st century.
One Ugly Rant
Last year, Derick was fired from Counting On after he launched an appalling tirade against fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings.
Jazz is a transgender teen, and she became the surprise target of Derick's wrath for reasons that remain a mystery.
The Subservient Wife
Jill quit the show shortly after Derick was fired, seemingly as a show of support for her husband.
A Tight Spot
The move left Jill and Derick without any visible means of support, and for months fans were baffled as to how the family was getting by.
Sure, Jill's parents are well-off, but they also have a LOT of kids to support. So how has Jill been supporting herself and her family this year?
