Now Jill, 31, has really shown off her individuality with a new photo in honor of her husband Derick’s 34th birthday.
The reality star took to her Instagram profile on Thursday to pose for a sultry pic with her man.
The TV personality passionately kissed her hubby while wearing a short-sleeved v-neck tee shirt and her blonde hair styled in light waves.
Derick went for a Buffalo River tee in a similar color as the two smooched lovingly.
Jill also shared a second photo of just her man walking down the street in a green shirt, gray jeans, and brown boots.
She captioned the post: “Happy birthday to the man of my dreams @derickdillard. Your grit, patience, wisdom, strength and compassion inspire me!
“Thanks for being our rock and always pointing us back to Jesus! I love you so much babe and pray God blesses you abundantly this coming year!”
Jill’s low-cut top came as a bit of a surprise as she was raised in a fundamental Christian household governed by her parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
Their conservative rules require the ladies to dress modestly, wearing only dresses or long skirts.
But that hasn’t stopped the mother of three from showing off her individual style in her clothing.
Last month, Jill shared a photo with her back to the camera as she hung a decorative piece on the wall of her $385,000 Arkansas home.
The reality TV alum stood on her couch holding the frame, and a hammer, with a pencil in her mouth.
She eyed the wall, pondering over the perfect spot for her new wood art.
Jill gushed over the piece in her caption: “I’m indecisive sometimes. …I switched up a few decorations and finally got this Amazing Grace piece hung in a new spot.”
She also noted that the décor was a gift from a midwife she used to train under.
However, the TV personality’s attire stood out the most to fans as it didn’t appear to be approved by her parents Jim Bob, 57, and Michelle, 56.
She sported a pair of tight blue jeans, and a baggy long-sleeved top, with her hair in a high ponytail, an ensemble that clearly defied her family’s stern dress code.
Jill has not only taken a stance against her parents’ modesty guidelines but has also got a nose ring and enrolled her kids in public school.
In 2020, Jill opened up about her chosen estrangement from her parents in an interview with People.
She said: “Our control to choose what jobs we were allowed to accept and even where we were allowed to live was taken away from us.”
Derick added: “The first few years of our marriage, we spent time and money working towards opportunities only to hit a dead end when we’d be told, ‘Well, you’re not allowed to do that.’”
She said of telling TLC and her family about leaving the show: “It didn’t go over very well with anyone. By that point, we’d had enough. We knew we had to pull out completely to reevaluate and get our bearings.”
Jill said of the falling out: “I never expected this to happen or for it to get to this point. But I’m realizing I can’t put a timeline on healing. I love my family and they love me.
“I really just have to follow God’s lead and take it one day at a time.”
