Since the early days of 19 Kids and Counting, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have shared their home life and all 19 of their children with viewers. And while fan favorites like Jessa, Jana, and Jinger are now heavily featured on Counting On, there’s one daughter who’s missing — and that’s Jill. Jill Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, are no longer welcome on the show due to Derick’s homophobic tweets of the past. But the two are still quite active on Instagram, and they share all aspects of their marriage with their followers.
There’s no doubt Jill and Derick have a close relationship, but some followers may think they’re a little too attached at the hip. Jill just posted an Instagram Story showing her going to Derick’s law school just to meet up with him between classes. And it’s not the first time something like this has happened, either.
Derick Dillard attends law school at the University of Arkansas
Since Jill and Derick were dismissed from Counting On, many have wondered what the couple is up to now. And it seems Derick is taking time for himself to head back to school for another year of learning law. Back in August 2018, In Touch Weekly reports Derick’s Instagram claims that he got into law school turned out to be factual, as he was found in the University of Arkansas directory. He’s since completed his first year and has returned for another.
Derick frequently adds posts to his Instagram showcasing his studies, too. And it seems he’s so into college that he’d even allow his two sons, Israel and Samuel, to attend public school later in life if they so choose. This recent post shows Jill and Derick’s 4-year-old son, Israel, next to Pistol Pete, the mascot for Oklahoma State University. Derick attended OSU and was Pistol Pete for a number of years — and according to his post, he’d encourage his sons to do the same.
Derick’s posted photos of Jill visiting him at school before
Not only does Derick post about his studies and his classes on his Instagram, but he also has added photos of Jill visiting him at school in the past. As we know, Jill is a full-time stay-at-home mom — and she absolutely adores making sure her husband is well taken care of. For that reason, it appears she frequently goes to the University of Arkansas to spend time with Derick inside and outside of the classroom.
“Randomly found Bill Clinton’s old office while walking through school the other day!” Derick captioned this post of him and Jill at his University. And this post shows Jill actually in Derick’s classroom. “Glad my favorite study buddy @jillmdillard was able to come to class yesterday! You’ve gotta find alone time (no kids) whenever you can!” he captioned the post.
Jill just posted an Instagram Story showing her dropping off cookies at his school
Now that Derick’s in his second year of law school, we haven’t seen too many posts of Jill’s visits. But thanks to her Instagram Story, she just clued her followers in that she’s still going to the University of Arkansas every once in awhile to surprise him. Her Instagram Story shows her baking pumpkin oatmeal cookies, and she further noted that she went to his school with Israel and Samuel to drop off the sweets. “Took the cookies to his school between classes …,” Jill captioned her post. “Didn’t get a pic with Derick, but sent him this one to let him know we were there with his surprise!”
So, is Jill’s gesture sweet, or too invasive considering Derick’s at school to learn? Fans have stated their opinions before in previous posts, and it seems they’re quite divided. Either way, we’re willing to bet Jill will be back again with even more surprises for her husband at law school.
