Jessa is also expecting her fourth child.

JILL AND JESSA

Jessa and Jill haven't spent time together in a while

In recent years Jill and Derick have been estranged from her family ever since Derick accused patriarch Jim Bob of withholding money from his children.

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.

In contrast to the way Jill was brought up by her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, Jill has also revealed that TV is allowed in her home.

"We try to limit any in some days to, like, zero screen time, especially if the weather is really nice," Jill told Us Weekly.

The sisters used to be close

"But there are times where it might be more than two hours a day, but I can justify it in my head if I’m like, ‘Well, the last two days they didn’t have any screen time.’

"It’s not good, but I’m not going to get too hung up on just the nitty gritty and lose my mind because they had four hours of screen time today."
