Jill Duggar Dillard Wiki – Jill Duggar Dillard Biography
Jill Duggar Dillard is an American television personality. She is known for her appearances on TLC as part of the reality television shows 19 Kids and Counting (2008-2015) and Counting On (2015-2017). She also co-authored a book with her sisters Jana, Jessa, and Jinger titled Growing Up Duggar: It’s All About Relationships published by Howard Books. It was released on March 4, 2014. The book shares an inside look at what being a Duggar child is like as they talk about their parents’ faith and perspectives on life.
She started her public life as a member of the family featured in the documentary 14 Children and Pregnant Again (2004), which talks about the daily life of the family from the “time they wake up” to the “time they go to sleep”. The documentary aired on the Discovery Health Channel. Another documentary, Raising 16 Children was produced on the same channel in 2006 when her sister Johannah was born. This was followed by another feature, On the Road with 16 Children about a family cross-country trip. On September 29, 2008, 19 Kids and Counting (formerly 18 Kids and Counting and 17 Kids and Counting) began as a regular series based on the Duggar family. The show’s final episode aired May 19, 2015, and was formally cancelled on July 16, 2015, due to her brother Josh’s scandals. Another series, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, starring Dillard and her sister Jessa, premiered on December 13, 2015. Jill and her family dropped out of the show in 2017.
On September 15, 2015, she officially became a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) after several years of study and professional apprenticeship. However, her mentor Vanessa Giron’s license was rescinded after an error with a patient, and now neither Dillard nor Giron is a licensed midwives in the state of Arkansas. In June 2015 on The Kelly File, she identified herself as one of the girls who her oldest brother Joshua Duggar had molested as a teen. She reported the abuse consisted of inappropriate touching while she was asleep, saying she did not know it had occurred until her brother confessed to her parents, and her parents then told her what had occurred. She stated on The Kelly File that the release of the police reports was a “revictimization”, and she expressed concern that the police reports detailing her abuse being made public might discourage other families experiencing abuse from seeking help.
