JIM Bob and Michelle Duggar shared birthday wishes for their estranged daughter Jill's husband, Derick.
The parents added 'we love you' even amid their feud with the couple.
On the Duggar family Instagram account Jim Bob and Michelle posted a happy snap of Derick captioned: "Happy Birthday Derick! We love you!!"
On Derick's 32nd birthday yesterday, his wife Jill posted: "Happy Birthday Mi Amor @derickdillard. You da bomb! So thankful for your steadfast, courageous, easygoing approach to life! Thanks for continuing to point me back to Jesus!"
She continued: "Oh, and thanks for listening well, [sic] attuning to me, bringing me coffee in bed every morning, fathering our kiddos, keeping me laughing, finding all the good YouTube vids, calming my crazy & letting me pop all the pimples & peel all the sunburns lol.
"You’re my knight in shining armor and I’m so grateful to God that we get to do life together! I’m proud of all your hard work and look forward to what God has in store! #lawgraduate2021."
"Live well, laugh often, love much… Can’t wait to grow old with you! I promise to carry our collapsible canes in my purse if you’ll share your dentures with me when I forget mine lol #centennials #dreambig."
Jill and Derick have been estranged from the Duggar clan after disagreeing with many of their beliefs and strict practices.
She told Us Weekly: “It was one of those things where we knew therapy was helpful but until we got to the point where we were, like, desperate … we didn’t venture out to actually sign up for it.
“It’s been so helpful learning to communicate as a couple and knowing your triggers.”
The pair explained they sought help after experiencing "a lot of transition" in their lives.
Jill told the outlet: “There were just a lot of things that we were working through and then learning to develop boundaries with even just extended family.”
Jill's Cousin, Amy, has also been feuding with her uncle and aunt, Jim Bob and Michelle, ever since she broke away from their strict religious values in recent years.
However Jill and Derick did attend her brother Justin’s wedding despite an ongoing family feud.
The 29-year-old took a mirror selfie with her husband,who rocked a man bun, as they both stayed safe with face masks.
The TLC star congratulated her brother and his new bride, Claire, in the caption.
She then added: “Derick & I got to make a quick date trip to the wedding!
"The boys had fun playing with Mima while our new puppy played with some new friends.”
Last month, Joy-Anna liked a scathing post about Jill from the DuggarBates Confessions Instagram account.
It read: “I realize Jill Duggar needs to distance herself from the family for mental health reasons, but I don’t understand why they need to make their issues with the family public.
"Speaking out against them publicly will burn more bridges between them. They say they want to repair their relationship one day, but their actions don’t reflect that.
"If I have an issue with my family, I deal with it privately and I certainly don’t bank on it by going to media outlets and YouTube to air out the dirty laundry.
"It’s not very Christian if you ask me. I get the sense that Jill and Derrick need money, and this is an easy route to get that money.”
The pair tied the knot in 2014 andshare sons Israel, five, and Samuel, three.
The couple used to star alongside her parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar,on their TLC show until they left the series.
Since claiming she was "abused" distancing herself from her famous family, Jill has rebelled against their strict rules, like the family’s modest dress code, getting her nose pierced and cutting her hair short.
