Hark! The Messiah is born, ya’ll! Jill and Derick Dillard have officially welcomed their first-born son into the world!

Israel David Dillard was born at 11:49 pm last night, according to People. He weighed 9lbs, 10oz, which is adorably chunky, but Jill was 10 days overdue, so it’s not surprising that he’s a little big! Check out the photo of him here.

So cute, right? The photo is interesting, though. It would appear that Jill had to have him in a hospital or birthing center after all. She and Derick were very vocal about wanting a home birth for little Israel but it looks like it didn’t work out that way. Maybe her being so far overdue caused her mid-wives to use extra caution or maybe she had some complications that led to her being admitted. I’m sure the details will be kept under-wraps so the big TLC special in early May won’t be spoiled!

Stay tuned, I will update this post if I learn anything additional. Congratulations, Jill and Derick!

Update via People: As we figured from the picture, little Israel was born in a hospital but all is well!

Although the new parents had planned for a home birth, baby Israel was born in a hospital. According to the Dillards, mom and baby are both doing well.
