This past Friday, 26-year-old Derick blogged his excitement at the arrival of his new son, which he shared was getting close.

"My wife, Jill, is beginning to have contractions which means that the birth of our son is near," he wrote in the post, which is about his understanding of the Bible in relation to his own life-changing event. "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."

Meanwhile, 23-year-old Jill -- who's also a student midwife -- didn't sweat her son's late arrival.

"I have told myself, 'First-time moms often go a week and a half over, so don't get discouraged,'" she told People last month. "When everyone else is asking you, 'When are you going to have that baby?' The baby will come when the baby comes."

Israel's birth is being documented for the couple's hit reality show 19 Kids and Counting. The birth special will air on TLC on May 5.
