Jill Duggar and husband Derick Dillard will soon be parents, and they were reminded of that fact this weekend when his church family honored them with a baby shower at Olive Garden. The 19 Kids and Counting stars were showered with gifts for 'Baby Dilly,' as they've affectionately referred to their unborn son since learning of his conception, as well as endless salad and breadsticks.

The weekend baby shower didn't end the celebratory mode for the 19 Kids and Counting family, however. On Monday, they celebrated Derick Dillard's 26th birthday. Jill Duggar shared word of his big day via Instagram with a sweet post.

She captioned the photo, "Happy birthday @derickdillard to the man of my dreams! I love you more than ever and pray God continues to make you more like him every day! You're the sweetest, most Godly and caring husband! I'm so blessed to be married to you! #derickdillard #birthday."

Will Jill Duggar make her hubby read that owner's manual before Baby Dilly is born?

Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have about two months to go before baby makes three. How kind of his church family to host a shower for the happy couple.

Jill's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are likely bursting at the seams with excitement over the thought of a new grandchild arriving. Son Josh Duggar and his wife Anna Duggar have three children and are expecting a fourth. That will mean a total of five grandchildren for the 19 Kids and Counting patriarch and matriarch--for now, anyway. Rumors have been flying ever since Jessa Duggar wed Ben Seewald in November that they will be the next to announce a pregnancy.

Do you expect someone else will host a baby shower for Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard? The event held at Olive Garden this weekend was the second shower for the couple. A few weeks ago, Derick's Walmart co-workers hosted a baby shower, too.
