Jill Duggar’s emotional week dealing with her family’s molestation scandal was capped off with a special milestone: Son Israel turned 2-months old. Check out the photo below!
As Gossip Cop reported, Duggar and husband Derek Dillard welcomed their baby boy on April 6. While Duggar famously comes from a family of 19 kids, the little bundle of joy was her first child. Since then, she has been sharing pictures of her little one on social media.
But over the last few weeks, and especially this last one, Duggar’s time as a new parent has been overshadowed by the news that her brother Josh Duggar molested her, three other sisters, and a babysitter when she was a little girl. Jill broke her silence on the sexual abuse on Friday’s “Kelly File,” where she broke down in tears about their personal family issue going public.
“How could someone do this? We’re victims. How can someone do this to us?” she cried. “I see it as a re-victimization that’s a thousand times worse. We’ve already dealt with this. We’ve already forgiven Josh.”
One day after the emotional interview aired, Duggar was celebrating Israel’s 2-month birthday on Saturday. She posted a picture of the infant wearing a special shirt for the occasion, writing on Instagram, “Happy 2 month birthday #IsraelDavidDillard! We are so blessed to be your parents! May you grow up to love Jesus and serve others! #2monthbirthday.” Dillard shared a similar post on his own Instagram.
While a number of followers shared well-wishes for little boy, others commented on the ongoing scandal. “I’m so glad you’re back!” exclaimed one fan. “Your tears on Megyn Kelly broke my heart. You should be lifted up as a role model of Christ’s call to forgive.” It was Duggar’s first Instagram post since May 21. See the picture of Israel below.
