’19 Kids & Counting’ — Are Jessa Duggar & Ben Seewald Engaged?

Hmm. Is Jessa trying to tell us something on social media?

The 21-year-old Duggar daughter started her own accounts on Twitter and Instagram, but HollywoodLife.com immediately noticed something was amiss. She listed herself as “Jessa Seewald” — which means she has taken her boyfriend Ben’s last name!

By the looks of it, Jessa only joined social media so that she could interact with Ben, especially since the sweet couple have done nothing else but post cute selfies together!

UPDATE: A rep for Jessa and Ben has confirmed to HollywoodLife.com that the couple are NOT engaged. They are still just courting! 

After witnessing Jessa and Ben’s relationship progress in-action on 19 Kids & Counting, it’s clear that these two are head over heels in love. Even if they are not officially engaged yet, it is only a matter of time!

Jessa & Ben Could Be Waiting Until After Jill & Derick’s Wedding

As you may know, Jessa’s older sister Jill is preparing to marry her fiance, Derick, on June 21.

The couple announced their engagement in April 2014, just a week after Ben popped the question on March 29.

Since the couple are planning to wed so soon, Jessa and Ben may be holding off on an official engagement so that they don’t overshadow Jill’s special day.

After all, we know that Jill and Jessa will always put their families first — especially their sisters!
