Another Duggar has gotten engaged! And this time it’s Jinger Duggar, who is officially set to marry Jeremy Vuolo, the former professional soccer player who has been courting the reality TV star for months! SO exciting! Get all the details below.
“So excited to share this news that we are now engaged,” Jinger Duggar, 22, and Jeremy Vuolo, 28, revealed to People mag. “From both of us, thank you all for the countless well-wishes we’ve received during the courtship. We are so excited to take this next step in spending our lives together. We are so grateful for how the Lord has brought us together. It has been an incredible journey so far and we are excited about serving Christ together in the coming days.”
We are so happy for the couple! And even crazier, the news of their engagement comes just ONE month after Jinger and Jeremy announced they were officially courting (aka the Duggar-approved way of dating), but to be fair, the couple actually met last May. And back when they first met over a year ago, they were on a mission trip together — so sweet! “It was there that I really saw his heart and really admired his character,” Jinger dished to the publication last month. Aw!
And on top of having a heart that Jinger has clearly fallen for, the athlete seems to be quite a catch in a variety of other ways too! After all, Jeremy graduated from Syracuse University and previously played for the Major League Soccer club the New York Red Bulls before stepping away from the game to pursue ministry. Right now, he’s signed with the San Antonio Scorpions in the North American Soccer League. Pretty impressive, huh?
And obviously we love that he already fits right in with the Duggars considering his name starts with a “J!” This truly seems like a match made in heaven! The pair’s courtship will be a big part of the new season of Jill & Jessa: Counting On when it returns to TLC on Aug. 23 at 8 p.m. ET. And we will definitely be tuning in!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — are you surprised that Jinger and Jeremy are already engaged? Are you excited to see their wedding?
