Israel David Dillard is the oldest child of Derek Dillard and Jill Dillard (née Duggar). His parents married on June 21, 2014 and they found out that were expecting in August. Israel was due in late March 2015, but didn't arrive until April 6, 2015. Jill wanted to deliver naturally at their home, but after a few days, she went to the hospital. The doctors told Jill and Derek that little Israel was breached and the doctors performed an emergency c-section. Israel, Jill, and Derek did leave for a very long missionary trip during the summer of 2015 but have since returned.
