The couple recently got married in Arkansas, where they shared their first kiss following the exchange of vows.

However, it appears as though the happy couple will be following in Jill’s parent’s footsteps with a large family. Just a couple months after their wedding and first kiss, the couple have announced Jill is pregnant and will be having the child next March.

The 19 Kids and Counting star allegedly had received negative results from several pregnancy tests, but, after persuasion from her sisters, the newlywed took one more test, which came back positive.

"It was surreal," Derrick exclusively revealed to People. "We were shocked. Both of us are so excited."

“About 30 days after Jill and Derick got married they gathered everyone in the living room and shared the news," Jim Bob, 49, added. "Everyone was clapping and cheering, and we were in shock, too."

Congratulations to the happy couple! New episodes of 19 Kids and Counting will be coming to TLC starting Sept. 2.
