After welcoming their son, Samuel Scott Dillard last Saturday, TLC stars, Jill (Duggar) and husband, Derick Dillard are now sharing official photos of their sweet little darling, who is nearly a week old.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday night, the official Counting On account for the Duggar family revealed a series of photographs, leading with Samuel smiling, sleeping and staring directly into the camera as he naps in his sweet onesie.
“First photo album of Samuel Scott Dillard! What a cutie!” the caption reads.
It was reported by the family’s official website that the Duggar daughter was in 40 hours of labor and delivered her second child via C-section at the hospital. This is the second C-section for Jill, who had an emergency C-section with 2-year-old, Israel in 2015.
The Dillards announced this past winter that they were expecting their second son. Despite complications with her first pregnancy, she revealed to PEOPLE that she was more composed for her second child.
“There’s a level of ease that comes with your second pregnancy,” she said. “Derick and I have been down this road together, so we’re comfortable. I’m just going to see how it goes, try to be healthy and prepare as much as I can. But this time I know that labor is unpredictable.”
The family also shared an image of Israel and Samuel looking an awful lot alike, with the caption, “These two brothers resemble each other!”
