Did Jill Dillard previously shade Michelle Duggar on Mother’s Day?
Duggar fans might recall that Jill didn’t share a post about her mom in honor of Mother’s Day, while many of her siblings did. To some, this looked like Jill was shading her mom.
Right now, there is some conflict between Jim Bob Duggar and Jill’s husband Derick. Derick is planning on writing a tell-all book and wants to expose the Duggar family. He’s previously opened up about some of the issues within the family. Recently, it was revealed that Jim Bob is already hiring lawyers for when the book comes out.
Because of this, fans assume that Jill Dillard and the rest of the family don’t have a great relationship. But, Michelle still stopped by Jill’s home for her birthday. In the picture, Derick and Jim Bob aren’t visible. It’s unclear whether they were there. It looks like Michelle is taking a selfie, so neither Jim Bob nor Derick is taking the photo.
Nonetheless, it seems like Michelle still loves and supports her daughter, despite any of the drama between Jim Bob and Derick. Depending on what Derick decides to spill in his tell-all book, things may change. In the meantime, it seems like Jill and Michelle are enjoying their time together. From her post, it sounds like Michelle is proud of who Jill is.
