Israel-Jill-Derrick Dillard

Baby Israel David Dillard is peacefully sleeping, his arms dangling as his father, Derick, cradles him in the crook of his elbow and his mom, Jill, stares at them both adoringly.

“I love cuddling with him,” Jill says, beaming. “I love seeing Derick hold him and watching the two of them fall asleep.”

Jill shifts gingerly on the sofa in the Dillard family’s living room in Rogers, Ark., managing a soft smile through the pain of recovering from the unexpected caesarean section she had five days earlier to bring her 9 lb. 10 oz., 23-inch son into the world on April 6.

“His birth didn’t go as expected,” she admits. “But having him here – it’s worth all of it. I wouldn’t do anything differently.”
