Jill Duggar's husband Derick admits they don't drink 'past the point of drunkenness' as her parents 'would not approve'

JILL Duggar's husband Derick Dillard assured fans that they "don't drink past the point of drunkenness."

The Counting On star previously admitted that her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, "would not approve" of them drinking.

Last week, Jill defied her parents' strict rules when confirmed she was drinking a piña colada while out to eat with her hubby.

During a Q&A video on the couple's YouTube channel, a fan asked Jill and Derick if they drink alcohol.

Derick answered: "We try and practice what the Bible says about anything and as far as alcohol, we believe scriptures pretty clear that drunkenness is absolutely sinful.

He continued: "Neither one of us- I don't think- have ever drank to drunkenness and don't ever plan to, but that doesn't mean that Jill wouldn't have a piña colada at dinner or something."

After nodding to agree with her husband, Jill added: "We also want to be careful and sensitive to other people, too."

The couple acknowledged that drinking alcohol is "a struggle for a lot of people" and Jill encouraged others to "know yourself and your boundaries."

The 29-year-old said: "We just want to be wise, but we also don't want to live like- I don't know- we want to live transparently, too."

She continued: "The whole drinking thing, even with our kids and stuff eventually- obviously they're really young right now- but eventually I think it's good not just with this area, but with other areas for them to see a healthy balance in our lives."

Derick agreed and added that they want to show their kids "the right perspective on it and to know both sides of it, regardless of what they decide."

Noting that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar wouldn't be happy with her drinking, Jill recently told People: "I know my parents would not be happy with it, and I know that my siblings, some more than others, would probably have an issue with it. 

"Other ones would probably be like, 'Whatever's good for y’all, that's fine. Live your life.' So far nobody's said anything to us about it."

Jill and Derick, 31, are known as the rebellious members of the family.

Derick previously broke the family's rules by dancing with his brother, Dan Dillard, and nephew Jaxon, 20 months.

Dan's wife Deena documented their dorky dad dance party and laughed as Jaxon seemed confused with what was happening around him.

Back in July, the mom-of-two showed off her legs as she modeled a "swimsuit" on her Instagram Stories.

The reality star showed off her unconventional swimwear in a video.

The ensemble consisted of a navy shirt and patterned skirt made out of swimsuit material.

While posing, she said: "I love this swimsuit. It's super adorable."
