Jill Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame delivered a precious baby boy, and she appears online in a new photo holding the beautiful bundle of joy. This photo has caused quite a stir, too, as fans are wondering if Jill Duggar had her baby early. She didn't.

You see, Jill Duggar is studying to be a midwife, and this baby boy she delivered is just one of the babies she has helped bring into the world as part of her training.

“So blessed to help deliver this little guy at home this morning, just 2 weeks away from my own due date! I previously delivered two of his older sisters. Gary Martin Takehiro Y. born today at 9:49am 7lbs. 8oz. 20 inches long. #AMommysButterflyMidwifery #babycatcher #studentmidwife,” Jill captioned the following Instagram photo.

Do you think Jill Duggar posted this photo to get a rise out of her 19 Kids and Counting fans? If so, it not only shows that the staunch Christian has quite the sense of humor, but also that she is well aware of how excited her fans are for her to deliver Baby Dilly. That's the name she and hubby Derick Dillard gave their unborn baby boy when they learned she was pregnant.

Being a midwife in training will likely provide Jill Duggar with lots of insight when the time comes to give birth to Baby Dilly. She and Derick Dillard were honored at their second baby shower, hosted a few days ago by Derick's church family at a local Olive Garden.

Are you among the 19 Kids and Counting fans excitedly anticipating the birth of Baby Dilly? Did Jill Duggar pull a fast one over on you with this latest Instagram photo?
