Joy-Anna Duggar & Austin Forsyth Engaged

“Counting On” star Joy-Anna Duggar and boyfriend Austin Forsyth are engaged!

Forsyth popped the question to Duggar on Thursday. She told Us Weekly, "I’m so excited to be engaged to my best friend — Austin made it so romantic, it’s amazing.”

Austin was also sharing how he felt after Joy-Anna said yes, saying, "I'm just overwhelmed with emotion. 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!”

Back in November, Duggar, 19, and Forsyth, 22, announced their courtship. The two had known each other for 15 years before they decided to make things romantic.

Monday’s episode of “Counting On” focused on their relationship, with Austin asking her dad Jim Bob if he could start a courtship with his daughter. He told Jim Bob, "Over the years, I've been watching, and I really admire her heart for the Lord and her character. She's such a diligent worker. She gets all the younger siblings working. She's a good delegator — and, of course, her beauty.”

Around the time that Joy-Anna and Austin began courting, her older sister Jinger married Jeremy Vuolo.
