"We are excited to finally announce the arrival of Samuel Scott Dillard!" the family said. "The newest addition to our family arrived on Saturday, July 8, 2017 at 1:02pm. He weighs 9lb 10oz and is 22” long. After 40 hours of labor, he was delivered via C-section at the hospital. Thank you for your continued prayers and support!"
The couple, who also have a 2-year-old son named Israel, announced the gender of their second child in January and said their son was "excited" to become a big brother.
"Israel didn't really understand what was happening but he's just excited because other people are excited," Derick, 28, said in a video posted to TLC's website. "So he's just excited about his new little baby brother."
Jill, 26, added, "I know that Israel and this little one will be best friends."
