The two got married June 21 and also revealed they conceived shortly after that.

“We got pregnant a little less than two weeks after we got married," she told People.

The fact that this new couple won't have much time alone doesn't bother the expecting newlywed.

“We may not get a few years alone together, but God doesn’t just pop babies out," she said. "You have nine months to grow together as a couple.”

She continued, "Derick and I want to leave up to God how many children we would have, whether that is two or 20."

Jill's father Jim Bob couldn't be happier for his daughter.

"About 30 days after Jill and Derick got married they gathered everyone in the living room and shared the news," Jim Bob said."Everyone was clapping and cheering, and we were in shock, too," he said.
