My, oh, my! Joy-Anna Duggar has started courting! We are so excited for her and can’t wait to find out more about Austin, her longtime friend who she has now entered into a courtship with. Watch her explain the relationship between the pair, right here!
Joy-Anna Duggar, 19, has revealed that she’s entered into a courtship with a boy she’s been friends with for a very long time, Austin. The news came about during TLC’s special Counting On: Jinger’s Wedding on Nov. 15, a very big day for the Duggar clan already, as that was when Joy-Anna’s sister, Jinger Duggar, got married! Could it be that Joy-Anna was hinting that she’s taking this courtship quite seriously because she chose to reveal it on the episode featuring her sister’s wedding?
“Hey y’all! I’m Joy Duggar and this is Austin,” Joy-Anna said in a video that was posted on the Duggar family website. “I just asked her to enter a courtship with me,” Austin tells the camera happily. “And I said yes!” Joy-Anna exclaims excitedly! “We’ve known each other for a long time,” the Duggar daughter said. Austin explains the pair have been buddies for almost 15 years and that when he decided to ask Joy-Anna to enter a courtship he chose a very special spot to pop that question.
“There was a whole group of us that came up,” Joy-Anna says in the adorable clip. “And we were just hanging out and it was really late at night, stars were just gorgeous. For me that’s really special, but then just being with him. And then now it’s even more special because it’s where we start our courtship.” The spot is also special because the pair share the same deeply religious values. “It’s a place that I’ve come many times to just get away and spend time with the Lord. I just knew that this was the place that I wanted to ask her,” Austin said. How adorable is that?
