"Happy birthday Israel!" commented Israel's aunt, Anna Duggar, while Jill's sister Jinger liked the post.

Jill and Derick wed in 2014 in front of hundreds of friends and family, and they are also parents to son Samuel.

But in recent years they have been estranged from her family ever since Derick accused patriarch Jim Bob of withholding money from his children.

He even had a radio shoutout on the big day

He alleged that the family were told their time on TLC shows 19 Kids and Counting, and later Counting On was a "volunteer ministry" and that no money was ever exchanged between TLC and the family.

Derick also claimed he and Jill are not welcome at the family’s compound unless Jim Bob is there, and alleged that Jill had been cut off from her younger siblings, many of whom she had raised.

Jill and Derick have also stopped following many of the family's various strict beliefs, allowing their sons to attend public school, wearing more revealing clothing, drinking alcohol, and speaking out about birth control.
