As is the case with many first-time moms, Jill had to wait a little longer than 40 weeks to give birth to her baby, but the 9-pound, 10-ounce boy finally arrived — two weeks after Jill's due date — at 11:49 p.m., April 6.

Jill and Derick, who married June 21, celebrated the news in a video posted to the Duggar family's YouTube page the next day. That video has been viewed more than 500,000 times since then.

"Not everything went as expected, so, we're reminded of the verse that the Bible talks about where man plans his way but the Lord directs his steps," Jill says in the video, paraphrasing Proverbs 16:9. "We're encouraged by that. [Israel is] just a handsome little fella."
