The family also shared photos on the DuggarFamilyBlog.com, revealing that Israel's birth will be featured on the May 5th episode of "19 Kids and Counting" on TLC. 

The couple thought the little guy, who was due on March 26, was coming on Friday, but it turned out Jill was experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions.

At that point, the couple joked that they might be having an Easter baby.
