Jill Duggar shared a mushy post on Instagram to mark Derick Dillard’s birthday. She posted a photo of the two together and then called him her “hero.”
Their relationship has been front and center for years. Jill Duggar was the first Duggar daughter to walk down the aisle and some Counting On fans believe that Jim Bob Duggar handpicked Derick Dillard for her.

Did the Duggars reconcile with the Dillards?
Yesterday, Derick Dillard received a shout out from Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar on his birthday. That surprised fans who thought both Jill Duggar and her husband were estranged from the family. It looked that way, especially over the holidays when the two didn’t attend any of the Duggar gatherings.
It will be interesting to see what happens with the Duggars and Dillards moving forward. It certainly appears like they may have mended fences, but if that isn’t the case and this was all for show, the next several months will be telling.
Despite all of the media backlash and the ups and downs within her family, Jill Duggar loves her husband. He has been a constant in her life, and when it was turned upside down following the revelation that she was a victim of Josh Duggar, Derick Dillard was there beside his wife to help her cope.
Through thick and thin, Jill Duggar appreciates Derick Dillard as not only her husband but also her best friend.
