So romantic! Jessa Duggar of ’19 Kids & Counting’ snatched herself a keeper. We know this because TLC just revealed Ben’s epic proposal in a new video, which was posted on YouTube on Aug. 21. Check it out!

After an 11-month courtship, Jessa Duggar, 21, and Ben Seewald, 19, are engaged to be married. And while we went absolutely gaga over the first photos of Jessa’s ring, we couldn’t wait to hear how Ben proposed. Thankfully, Ben’s proposal was revealed in a new video released by TLC on Aug. 21.

Jessa Duggar & Ben Seewald Engaged

In the video (seen above), Jessa’s dad, Jim Bob Duggar, 49, says, “We are so excited for Jessa and Ben. They got engaged tonight…and it was absolutely beautiful. And Ben, throughout the day, did all kinds of just really neat things to bring back special memories of their relationship.”

“We are so excited for them — we’re just thrilled,” Jessa’s mom, Michelle Duggar, 47, adds.

“Ive been working on this, planning this day for several months, and just talking to people and getting ideas, and just thinking about…I tried to be creative. How can I make this a day to remember? You know? The whole day, you know?” Ben tells the camera.

He then fondly looks at Jessa, who adds, “With every clue I was like — I was really excited — but I was also nervous the whole time. I didn’t know where he was. He could [have shown] up at any point. [I thought], ‘He’s probably behind me right now on his knee,’ so I was always looking around.”

Jessa then thanks all the viewers for tuning in to 19 Kids & Counting through her courtship and engagement with Ben. She also asks fans to stick around because a wedding will be next!
