Things are getting stranger by the day for former Counting On stars Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard. While most people would characterize the Duggars as unusual, Jill and Derick have always operated on their own wavelengths. Well, the two just took things to an even weirder level. In her most recent post on social media, Jill confessed that she loves her husband more than she does her children.
The drama started a few months ago when Derick was accused of cheating on Jill. The rumors began after a few anonymous sources came forward, but things really heated up after fans got wind of the reports.
To make things even worse, Jill and Derick encouraged the rumors by posting some odd things on social media.
This includes the time when Jill shared a pic of her bible, which happened to be open to a verse about adultery. Jill captioned the image by saying she was keeping Derick in her prayers.
Fans immediately took the post as evidence of Derick’s cheating ways.
While Jill seemed to be confirming the cheating rumors, her more recent post is a complete turnaround. Jill just shared a selfie with Derick and captioned the photo by writing, “Love you! When I count my blessings, you’re at the top of my list!”
Strangely enough, Jill made no mention of her kids, Israel and Samuel, who are presumably below Derick on her list.
Counting On fans did not react well to the post. According to The Hollywood Gossip, fans blasted Jill in the comments section and basically called Derick out for ruining her life. Some fans also questioned why Jill is still with Derick, while others criticized him for taking a stand against transgender people.
While fans made it clear where they stand, Derick Dillard fully appreciated Jill’s kind words. Derick later responded to the post on Twitter and confessed his undying love for his wife.
Jill Duggar has not commented on her husband’s cheating scandal.
The rest of the Duggar family will return with new episodes of Counting On in 2019.
