Jill Duggar, of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, is reportedly very happy with her new husband Derick Dillard.

The newlyweds tied the knot in June, and are already expecting their first child, a boy, in March 2015.

According to Jill's mother Michelle Duggar, Jill has transitioned well and loves married life.

"I think it's been a very smooth transition for Jill and Derick," Michelle wrote on her blog. "She's got her house set up and she's already had company over. It's so sweet to see them starting their lives and their family together."

"It was truly the joy of her life to marry Derick and they both feel so blessed to have each other," she continued. "They are just really, really happy to be married and enjoying married life. It's so special to watch these budding relationships blossoming."

Jill and Derick had a short courtship, and followed strict guidelines during that time period. They did not hold hands until they were engaged, and shared their first kiss at the alter after saying "I do." Jill's sister Jessa Duggar also abided by the same rules, although she and her husband Ben Seewald waited until they were in private to share their first kiss.

"It’s just so sweet to watch these guys and girls that are really in love," Michelle added. "Love is in the air and it’s good for all of us to be around that, even if the little siblings have to go, “Oh no, they’re kissing again, oh my!”"
