How did Jill and Derick meet?

Their love story began in 2011. When Jim introduced Jill and Derick. The two met in person in Nepal in 2013. During an interaction with People, Jill said, “We talked a lot and started texting and emailing. And we Skyped a lot. I got to know some of his friends and family. And then, we met in person months later. I was in love with someone I had never met in person.”
Derick met the Duggar family and then he didn’t take much time to propose to the love of his life. He popped the question to his soulmate in March 2014.
The couple is super excited and can’t wait to meet their rainbow baby. Not just Jill and Derick, but their two sons are also pretty thrilled with the great news.
