Jill Duggar and husband Derick take kids to visit ‘massive’ old home that dad Jim Bob sold forcing couple to ‘move out’ – The Sun

JILL Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard have taken their two boys to visit their first home as a married couple.

The family drove past the property, which is back on the market, making a swing through the drive as they reminisced about their memories of the home.

Jill shared video of the visit on her Instagram, writing: "Checking out the old house we used to live in for a little while when we first got married.

"It was massive, it was one of my dad's house flips and we lived there until it sold."

The home had been gifted to the pair by her father, and the patriarch of the conservative Duggar family, Jim Bob who made his fortune flipping houses.

He is thought to have helped each of his children out with their homes, although Jill and Derick moved out of the property in 2019 when he sold the home to another buyer and they moved into a new build.

The Duggar family became famous when they were featured on the TLC reality television show 19 Kids and Counting.

It documented the lives of parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 kids – nine girls and ten boys.

However, in recent years many of the children – including Jill and Jinger- have taken a different path, breaking the family’s modest dress code, as they have traded in long skirts and dresses for jeans.

Several of the girls have also been wearing tank tops that expose their shoulders , while Jill even got her nose pierced.

What do the Duggar family believe?

The Duggar family are devout Baptists and the show frequently discusses values of purity, modesty, and faith in God.

The Duggars avoid birth control, saying they have decided to allow God to determine the number of children they have.

All of the children are homeschooled, and access to entertainment such as movies and television is limited.

They practice chaperoned courtship, in which a couple becomes acquainted only in a group setting.

Jill's husband also has a strained relationship with Jim Bob and Michelle.

The outspoken son-in-law claimed the patriarch withheld compensation from their appearances on the family’s reality show Counting On, which they left in 2017.

The pair have recently come under fire from fans for spending time with close friends despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and it's recent spike in Arkansas.

The total number of COVID-19 cases in the state has surpassed 24K.

Jill shared a picture of Derick with their boys, Samuel and Israel, hanging out with another family and their children.

That couple posted on the pic: "Loved hanging out with y'all @jillmdillard come to TX soon!"

Jill replied: "Aww! We loved having y'all with us!! Come back soon!"

But Reddit followers were horrified the family was not social distancing as coronavirus numbers surge and nearly 300 people have died in the state.

One follower wrote: "I'm sad to see they have stopped social distancing. Hasn't there been a recent spike in Arkansas?"

Another said: " Yeah… They sent the CDC out to Northwest Arkansas because it is so bad.

"They're testing over 30% positive where the main home is."

Another social media user added: "So many have never taken this seriously or all but forgotten this is still a problem."
