In the announcement, Jill says, "Not everything went as expected so we were reminded of the verse that the Bible talks about where man plans his way but the Lord takes his steps. We were encouraged by that."

The new mom was more than a week overdue when she finally welcomed Israel, weighing in at 9 pounds and 10 ounches and 23 inches in length.

Derick was so excited about his wife's labor that he blogged about it.

"My wife, Jill, is beginning to have contractions which means that the birth of our son is near," he wrote. "I can't even describe right now the anticipation I am feeling, as I am about to get to meet my firstborn son for the first time face to face. So many people have already testified that nothing can quite describe that moment and that I’ll just have to experience it for myself."

Jill and Derick have been married since June 21, 2014.
