Jill DuggarShe is now officially a mother of three!

On July 11, Counting On star revealed on her BlogThat she and her husband Derick Dillard had welcomed their third baby boy, Frederick “Freddy” Michael DillardThis was on July 7.

The family noted the significance behind Frederick’s name, sharing that it “holds special meaning for us since it’s Derick’s name with ‘Fre’ added to the front, to make ‘Fre-derick.'” 

“Similarly, Derick’s name is a variation of his late dad’s name, Rick, that his parents created by adding ‘de’ to the front of Rick to spell, ‘de’-‘rick,’ literally meaning son ‘of’ (de) Rick,”The family was also added. “We were excited to settle on the name Frederick and incorporate both Derick’s and his dad’s name, by just adding ‘Fre’ to the beginning of Derick’s name.”

Jill and Derick—also parents to son Israel, 7 & son Samuel, 5—explained that Frederick “wanted to come a little early (the day before big brother Samuel’s birthday!), so we had our planned C-section a bit before originally planned.”
