Over the weekend, the former Counting On star and her husband enjoyed a date night out — a regular activity they've had to put on pause in recent months due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
"🥰Date night with my favorite person @derickdillard ❤️ We’ve missed our regular date night outings during covid and have had lots of in home dates, but we were able to swap childcare with friends last night for a date!" she captioned an Instagram photo of herself sitting in the restaurant at a table with Derick, 31, with whom she shares sons Samuel Scott, 3, and Israel David, 5.
After posting the photo, she was met with an outpouring of comments, including one from a user who noticed Jill's drink, which the mother of two confirmed was alcoholic.
"Drink looks amazing what is it?" the account holder asked.
"A piña colada ☺️🍹" replied Jill, 29.
The commenter then questioned: "virgin pina colada or regular?"
Jill responded: "regular."
Confirmation from Jill — whose conservative and devout independent Baptist parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar enforced a strict modest dress code growing up and have specific rules for dating, as documented on their TLC show 19 Kids and Counting — that the beverage was alcoholic received praise from countless followers, who commended the TLC alumna's decision to drink.
"And that is completely ok. Everything in moderation. And even Jesus drank wine. You are obviously not overindulging. Congratulations on making a life of your own. You are still doing what Jesus would do, so relax everybody!!!!!!" wrote an account holder.
"Good for you, Jill!!" wrote another.
"HELL YES JILL! Live yo best life girl!!!!🙌😍" said an Instagram user.
Said yet another, "get it girl!!! We love you! Enjoy your life with your man and those beautiful boys❤️🙌🏻."
Back home with these kiddos and they’re back into trouble haha Sam emptied nearly a whole roll of toilet paper into the toilet because he wanted the “trumpet.” Love these little guys so much and embracing the crazy journey of motherhood because I know this sweet season doesn’t last forever! Also much easier to handle after getting a kid-free weekend with my hubby @derickdillard thanks to @cldilla Y’all are the best! 💞🙌🏻

Jill said she was “so excited” to find the modest apparel retailer because “all of their swimwear is UPF50 and they have so many cute swim & sport clothing options everyone will love!”
In two photos, she wore a cap-sleeve swim top paired with a printed swim skort. Next, she modeled waterproof leggings, long biker shorts and two swim tanks with tie rushing on both sides.
“I like modest coverage without being covered head to toe 😁” one fan said.
And Jill agreed, responding, "Yeah, I love their options!"
