The couple announced their pregnancy back in December after welcoming their first son Israel in April 2015.

“We are so excited to be expecting Dillard baby #2!” they told PEOPLE at the time. “Children really are a wonderful blessing from God. Having Israel has been such a delight to us that we know a second sweet baby will only continue to add joy to our family. We are thankful to God for this sweet child, and we cannot wait to see her or him face to face!”

In January, they found out that they were expecting another boy, and now he’s finally here!
