Deena and her husband, Dan Dillard, who is Derick's only sibling, shared on Instagram about their baby boy, "We are so excited to introduce Jaxon Michael Dillard to the world. He came at 9:11pm on Sept 5th. He weighs 6 lbs 7oz and is 19 inches long. He's absolutely perfect in every way. During our skin to skin time @justdand prayed the sweetest prayer of thanksgiving and blessing over our little family. We are so grateful for God's sweet blessing of Baby Jax."
Jill, 27, posted a photo of her new nephew on Instagram, wiith the caption, "So excited for another Dillard baby!! ... Congrats @deena.dillard and @justdand We can't wait to meet baby Jax! #firstDillardcousin #jaxonmichaeldillard"
Jill also shared the happy news on her family blog, in which she features her and Derick's sons Samuel, 1, and Israel, 3,: "We are so excited for Dan and Deena (Derick's brother and sister-in-law) on their new arrival! Israel and Samuel are thrilled to have their first Dillard cousin and we are so excited to have our first Dillard nephew! We all look forward to meeting him soon! Y'all are such great parents already and we are so happy for you. Welcome to this wonderful parenting journey!"
As fans know, Jill and Derick are close to Dan and Deena.
Derick and Dan are the only children of Cathy Dillard, who lost their dad, her late husband, when he died more than a decade ago.
Deena recently celebrated Jill's birthday with the former Counting On star whose husband's controversy on social media caused him to be axed from the show.
Deena wrote online at that time, "I would like to wish my sister-in-law @jillmdillard the happiest of birthdays! She is a wonderful mother who loves Jesus so much! She's even willing to raise her kiddos in the most challenging conditions in order to bring the Gospel to the nations. We are blessed to know her."
But as Radar reported, fans have slammed Jill for promoting a sex book for kids that includes allegedly hateful teachings!
Jill said she was a big fan of the book, The Story of Me written by Stan and Brenna Jones, which is meant to teach kids ages three to five about sex education.
The book teaches that Christian parents should "be the primary sex educators of their children." It also instructs parents to teach their kids that only married couples should have babies.
The Story of Me spews out controversial language that claims single and same-sex parents are not fit to raise children.
But Derick has denied he was fired, claiming he and Jill decided to leave the family reality show of their own accord.
