Michelle Duggar, matriarch of the 19 Kids and Counting clan will reportedly be present when daughter Jill Duggar's home birth. Jill's husband Derick Dillard had fans convinced Jill was in labor over the weekend, but thus far nothing more than Braxton Hicks contractions have been confirmed.

Jill Duggar is studying to be a midwife and will be attended by one during her labor and delivery, as well as by Michelle Duggar and Derick Dillard's mom. It's uncertain what the two moms' roles will be, but they will be present in some capacity.

Jill Duggar is more than a week overdue, and Derick said on Saturday that he was hoping for an Easter baby.

“Still waiting to meet our little guy. Maybe we’ll have an Easter baby! #jillmdillard #babydilly,” he captioned the following photo of Jill Duggar, holding a small chalkboard that reads, ’41 weeks, 4 days.’

Michelle Duggar is, of course, no stranger to labor and delivery. Being the mom of 19, and also having lost a baby--Jubilee Shalom Duggar--she knows the ins and outs of birthing a child.

It will likely be very comforting for Jill Duggar to have Michelle Duggar present when she has Baby Dilly--what they have referred to their unborn baby as. Some speculate he may be named Isaiah when he is born.

Do you think Jill Duggar will have that Easter baby?

How wonderful that Michelle Duggar will get to be part of their big day.
