Jill Duggar Dillard & Husband Derick Reveal Their Second Son Will Be Called Samuel Scott
The soon-to-be second time parents revealed in a blog post on their family website on Tuesday that their son will be called Samuel Scott Dillard.
“We are so excited to announce the name of Baby Dillard #2! Samuel Scott Dillard,” the couple wrote in the post, which accompanied a family photo of Derick, Jill and their 2-year-old son, Israel.
“We can’t wait to welcome him to the world and have him join our family very soon!” the post stated.
Jill, 26, and Derick, 28, exclusively revealed to PEOPLE in December that they were expecting their second child in July.
“Children really are a wonderful blessing from God,” the pair said. “Having Israel has been such a delight to us that we know a second sweet baby will only continue to add joy to our family. We are thankful to God for this sweet child and we cannot wait to see her or him face to face!”

Recently, the duo opened up to TLC about their love of being parents — but admitted that they are far from “mastering” it.
“We really love being parents and I think just seeing, as a father specifically, like I enjoy seeing his development and being able to teach him new things,” Derick said about the best part of watching their son, Israel, grow up.
“You learn things as you go along,” Jill admitted, and added, “We’re far from mastering any skill of parenting, but we do pick up on little tips here and there from Derick’s mom, my mom. We’re always asking questions of other people.”
