ROGERS, Ark. (Christian Examiner) -- Jill Duggar, who appears on "19 Kids & Counting" alongside her parents and various brothers and sisters, released a new photo of her growing baby bump. The 23-year-old is now 28 weeks and four days along, which means the baby could most likely survive outside the womb, although she is expected to deliver in March around 40 weeks.

"Sweet picture of Jill and her little one!" matriarch Michelle Duggar captioned the Facebook picture, which shows Jill with a red shirt and round belly. "At this point in gestation, there is now a 90% chance that he could survive outside the womb. Life is beautiful. We can't wait to meet this boy!"

This isn't the first time Jill and her husband Derick Dillard have celebrated their growing baby boy. For Christmas, they wrapped up her belly like a present and placed a gift tag on it that read: "To Jill and Derick, From God."

Both soon-to-be parents are excited about the child's birth.

"It's really exciting just thinking about being parents," Jill told The Christian Post. "I'm sure we'll be getting plenty of advice from our parents. I've always dreamed of being a mother and having kids and so, it's something that I've prepared for while growing up and taking care of babies and loving on them."

The happy couple also has another milestone to celebrate – they have been married 200 days.

"It's been 200 days since my best friend and I @derickdillard said 'I do!'" she posted on Instagram underneath a new photo of their wedding ceremony. "I'm blessed beyond measure!"
