That didn't take long.

Just eight weeks after tying the knot, Jill Duggar (now Jill Dillard) and husband Derick Dillard announced to People magazine that they are expecting their first child.

So, the counting part still technically applies for the Duggar family's reality TV show "19 Kids and Counting."

The couple procreated so fast, their wedding hasn't even aired yet on the TLC show.

Jill, 23, and Derick, 25, married June 21 in front of more than 1,000 family and friends. The wedding will be featured in the Sept. 2 episode.

Jill told People that several pregnancy tests came back negative before she finally had a positive result while visiting her parents' home a month after her wedding. The baby is due in March.

"It was surreal," Derick told the magazine. "We were shocked. Both of us are so excited."

He's "shocked?" Really? Twenty kids and counting and he's shocked?

Jill is the daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who are the parents of the 19 children touted in the title of their reality show.
