Little Israel Dillard’s future is so bright, he’s gotta wear shades.
“So thankful to God for this handsome little guy,” the 19 Kids and Counting star, 23, wrote on Instagram shortly after her baby was born.
In one photo, Jill can be seen holding her sleeping baby as she’s visited by friends, another shows her sister Joy Anna, watching over her nephew.
They also shared pictures from the hospital with their doctor and one of the nurses.
“We are so blessed to have such a great family and such great support her at the hospital with the doctors and the nursing staff,” Jill told PEOPLE before they came home. “My sisters and my mom and Derick’s mom have all been in to help!”
She also said that her husband, Derick, 26, is already a “pro” at burping baby Israel.
