The couple announced they were expecting another child last month, and were confident that their son would make a great older sibling. "Israel is gonna be a great big brother," Jill declared. "He already loves, like, other little babies, and the only thing I think he's gonna have to work on is learning that babies that are smaller than you, you have to be more gentle with."

Israel is also going to have a new cousin pretty soon. In August, Jill's younger sister, Jessa, also announced that she was expecting her second child with husband Ben Seewald. Jessa, 24, welcomed her son, Spurgeon, in November 2015.

Counting On airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
