How Will Derick Dillard Embrace Fatherhood? 19 Kids & Counting Season Starts with a Sneak Peek
Jill Duggar (Dillard) and her husband host a sleep-over, fondue, nail-painting party for her sisters on the 9th season's first episode
What is Derick Dillard – who joined the famously expansive Duggar family this past summer when he married Jill Duggar – going to be like as a father?
The season premiere of TLC’s hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting – which starts its ninth season Feb. 17 at 9 p.m. on TLC – will offer viewers a little sneak peek, complete with Derick and Jill hosting a fun-filled sleepover with Jill’s little sisters.
In an exclusive PEOPLE video of the season’s first episode, Derick and Jill, who are expecting a baby boy this spring, play host to the youngest Duggar girls with a fondue party that also includes fingernail-painting.
“It was really yummy,” 5-year-old Josie says in the clip.
Derick, 25, who has just one brother – in contrast to his wife Jill, 23, who has 18 siblings – had never painted anyone’s nails before.
“It was a lot of fun,” says Derick in the clip.
And his wife thought he actually knew what he was doing.
“You did pretty good,” Jill tells her husband.
