"We're so excited to announce the birth of our son, Israel David Dillard," the new mother, holding the newborn, said. "He weighs a whopping 9 pounds, 10 ounces, and he was 23 inches in length."

"And not everything went as expected," Jill continued, quoting a Bible verse that she said gave her and Derick encouragement.

The new parents were planning a home birth but things turned out a little differently than expected when Jill went into premature labor.
