Jill Duggar and husband Derick say they 'hug, kiss and hold hands' in front of kids as it's 'healthy to show affection'

JILL Duggar and her husband, Derick Dillard, admitted that they "hug, kiss, and hold hands" in front of their kids because it's "healthy to show affection."

The reality stars have continued to stray away from Jill's parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's strict family rules.

Jill, 29, and Derick, 32, recently spoke to Us Weekly, and opened up about showing their love in front of their little ones.

Derick told the outlet: "It’s healthy depending on what the affection is. Hugging, kissing, holding hands. Yes.”

However, the ex TLC stars also make sure to solve their issues in front of their two kids, sons Israel, five, and Samuel, three.

Jill explained: “That way, they don’t develop an unrealistic expectation of marriage.

"As long as they know in the end we love each other and are on the same page.”

This is not the first time that the couple have opened up about their personal lives, as last month Jill confessed that the pair have a "good sex life," and even revealed they did it four times in one day.

Previously Jill even revealed she uses birth control- despite her parents forbidding the prevention of pregnancy within a marriage.

The former Counting On star also teased that she and Derick like to keep their marriage "fun" with "bedroom games."

Jill said: "Stuff like that helps, like, to put the spark back in there in the stress of life, especially during Covid when you're stuck at home and all that you can still keep the fire alive and you really need to.

"If you don’t you’ll have bigger issues."

Derick also added that "sex and intimacy and finances are the biggest reasons for divorce" so they had to be "proactive."

The mother of two, who recently stunned fans by sporting sexy skintight leggings, attended her brother Justin's wedding with Derick despite her feud with her family.

The two left their kids behind, as Jill shared an Instagram picture of Derick hard at work remote studying and wrote: "…and Derick had a class from the hotel so traveling without the kids was extra nice!"

Jill isn't the only Duggar who doesn't have a problem being open about sex, as her rebellious cousin Amy has also touched on the topic.

Amy once tweeted: "Sex accounts for about 10% in a marriage.. unless you're not having any!

"Then it's like 90%. Make intimacy a priority!"
