Jill Duggar Dillard is the “rebel” of the Duggar family, but she and her sister, Jessa Duggar Seewald, share a strong bond. They are the same age and both were victims of her brother Josh. However, Jill and her husband Derick Dillard have stood up to family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar and even hired an attorney to recover money owed from work on the TLC reality television series. And after Jill revealed it had been years since she’d visited her parents’ home, fans knew the rift between the Duggar family and Jill was real.
In a 2020 interview with The US Sun, Derick spilled, “Our visit to the Duggar house has been restricted and that’s where she and her spouses hang out. We didn’t get to see other family members as often as we’d like. He also revealed that his wife Jim had to get Bob’s permission to help Jessa give birth to Ivy, their third baby. Jill and Dereck met Jessa and Ben’s newest baby two months after her birth. In September 2021, Jill shared an Instagram Story with a photo of her and husband Derek with baby Fern (via People).It was the first meet-and-greet with Jessa and Ben’s littlest seewald, and Jill wrote, “We finally met this cutie last night .
Now Jessa is hitting back at rumors she was snubbed by Jill’s recent baby shower.

You’re beautiful inside and out and you deserve to be loved!” Jessa Duggar Seewald commented, “It was so much fun celebrating this new life!” But then haters started fooling Jessa as to why there wasn’t one Photos of her or a member of the Duggar family from Jill’s shower.
The mum, 29, hit back at the haters in a now-deleted comment, which was captured via screenshot. “These rumors are making me angry and I’m here to put a stop to it,” Jessa scolded the trolls. “The narrative that puts forth these types of comments is false. Just not true.” Jessa explained that “just about everyone else was out of town at the time of the baby shower, whether it was for a wedding, a family reunion, or a trip to the beach.” adding, “Daylight saving time is busy, and you can’t always coordinate 19+ schedules.” Jessa ended her tirade against the trolls by telling all the Duggars, “Love [Jill] sweet and she knows it.”
But Jessa’s troll-smashing was met with doubt on the Duggar subreddit. One Redditor commented, “Jessa’s response is literally, ‘Our family has so many friggin’ baby showers that we can’t possibly attend them all, but we were totally there.” Another Redditor wrote, “Interesting that they all get together at other events, but when.” when it comes to Jill, they’re super busy all of a sudden.”
