Another Duggar girl is heading to the altar, following Joy-Anna Duggar’s announcement that she’s now engaged after boyfriend Austin Forsyth popped the question on Thursday.
“We just got engaged!” Duggar, 19, tells Us Weekly. “I’m so excited to be engaged to my best friend — Austin made it so romantic, it’s amazing.”
Forsyth tells Us that he’s excited to be starting down the road to sharing his life with the “Counting On” star. “I’m just overwhelmed with emotion,” he says. “I’m so excited to be engaged, because that means the next step is marriage, and I’m excited to see what the future holds for us!”
In the Feb. 27 episode of “Counting On”, viewers watched Forsyth approach “19 Kids and Counting” patriarch Jim Bob Duggar to ask permission to begin courting his daughter.
“Over the years, I’ve been watching, and I really admire her heart for the Lord and her character,” said Austin, who’s known Joy-Anna Duggar since she was five years old. “She’s such a diligent worker. She gets all the younger siblings working. She’s a good delegator — and, of course, her beauty.”
Duggar declared Forsyth to be a “good guy” and said he’d be “honoured” to see him court Joy-Anna.
Just over a week ago, the couple appeared in this TLC video to update fans on how their courtship was going:
