When the news arrived that Jill miscarried, she told her TLC fans that they had already told the two boys, Sam and Israel about their new sibling. So, it seemed double-devastating when they found out that she lost her third child. Of course, everyone knows that losing a child is one of the most soul-destroying events. However, Jill and Derick have their Christian faith to fall back on. Actually, they named their child River Bliss which sounded gender-neutral. Now that she expects a rainbow baby, fans can’t wait for the gender reveal.

Counting On fans heard earlier this month that Jill is expecting a baby. Unfortunately, they also heard that the whole family went down with covid. However, she reported back this week, that they seem to all be over it now. At one stage, she was understandably worried about having the virus whilst she was pregnant. Well, it also delayed her gender reveal. But on Wednesday, she shared that the time had come to make the grand announcement. So, is she expecting another boy or a little girl?
