2 Engaged Couples!


It has been 24 hours since Jinger Duggar announced her New York City engagement to Jeremy Vuolo, and we couldn't be happier for the soon-to-be married couple. They have not yet revealed their wedding date, but when and if they do, we will share it with you all right away.

Jessa and Ben Seewald, who were at the proposal, created a short video in honor of the exciting milestone. Jessa and Jinger have been best friends since childhood, so it is fitting that Jessa and Ben were the ones who introduced Jinger and Jeremy.



Jill, Derick, and Israel Dillard also offered their congratulations, all the way from Central America. They will be returning to the United States very soon for a visit that will extend into the fall (more on that here).



The Dillards also sent a video message to Derick's brother, Dan Dillard, and his fiance, Deena. As we announced last week, Dan and Deena are also newly engaged.

  5. I just love your family, I've been a fan so long I feel like part of the family. Honestly I would love to meet the whole gang. Bless you all for your love, kindness, faith, and being human. Mucho love.....

  6. "Best friends" since childhood? Odd way to describe siblings/sisters. You could have said they have a close emotional bond or something. "Best friends" sounds like they met as strangers on the playground & clicked.

  7. Congratulations to the couples, Best Wishes and Many Blessings

    3. Josiah's courtship happened right before the Josh scandals. Once everything came out the young lady ran for the hills and the courtship was mutually called off.

  12. Congratulations to Jeremy & Jinger.

  13. From the picture it seems as though Jessa and Ben were present for the engagement. Did they forget to tell Jinger and Jeremy congratulations in person?

    1. Which engagement? The one filmed on the rooftop? That was probably not the only time the question was popped.

  14. Can't any if the Duggars have privacy when big moments occur? For goodness sakes! How many family members were peeking from around the corner while this special moment occurred!

    1. Family members AND a filming crew!

  15. Such a great time for the family!
    Jill is looking so healthy and her face appears fuller like it use too.

    So thankful everyone is healthy and happy to enjoy the celebrations

  16. With all due respect, they don't need to announce a wedding date immediately after getting engaged...I hope they soak up the moment and enjoy this new time in their lives!

    1. Rest assured wedding plans have been in the works for awhile.

  17. Now we know why Jill and Derick are coming home. Possibly for a couple of weddings! How exciting for their family!

    Ellie and Lilly, would you please blog that Jeremy and Hunger had been introduced and exploring the relationship God has for them since May of 2015?

    A lot of stories out there stating unkind and untrue statements that this couple went from meeting to courtship to engaged since May of 2016 or in just 5 weeks.

    Why do individuals have to be so unkind? Even if it were 5 weeks, many marriages have been Christ centered and God honoring. When God shows you the right person for your life it works.

    So tired of the People who do not report the correct facts. If posted on "Official Blog" then false stories will be shut down. People can call them on inaccurate facts!

    So excited for Hunger and Jeremy! They look so happy and May God grant them the love, the wisdom and the heart for a future and ministry together.

    What a Happy Day for the two of them and their Families! God Bless you both, Jeremy and Jinger!

  18. Jill & Derick are not in the mission house in C.A. in those videos. They are somewhere with different woodwork and what looks like a security system or other electronic home management system on the wall.

    Why is the writing on the t-shirt backwards? And his front teeth usually go right, not left. Why the mirror image? What's going on with this video?

    1. Hey, I noticed that about Derick's teeth, too. I sure hope he can get that fixed. It can't be healthy to have such misalignment of the jaw.

      Delete
    2. Does anyone know why Derick wears his hair so long now?

      Delete
  19. Congratulations! I think it is wonderful for the couples to be pure and modest. Also the reason for chaperones is not only to make sure the fleshly person not take over because being in love can cause one not to think straight; also there are no questions of purity with a chaperone. Again Congratulations!

    1. Jeremy is not pure or has a modest past. He IS a born again Christian so I think the Duggars arevtryingvto get the message across that they accept those who have sinned in the past but can turn thier life around to Christ.

  20. When did Jeremy propose to Jinger? Also could you maybe do a timeline of their relationship ie when they met, began courting etc?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Would that be a "real" timeline, or the one the press people want you to believe?

  22. Israel is just the cutest little guy. ❤

  23. What's with Jill and Derick's nasty hair lately?? They used to look so clean and nice.

    1. I agree. Seems like one representing God would want to look like God is taking care of them. Not the impression given.

      Also, wondering if Duggar rules are just to confining for Derick?

  24. O sister glad you are best friends, but this seems very cliquish. Something like that might be said privately but to make such a video is not something I think is in good taste.

  25. Ahhh, praise God! I'm so excited for their engagement. Congrats Jinger and Jeremy!! (Another J name) so cute! May God bless your relationship and future covenant.

    1. Jeremy was first noticed in the background of a family picture quite awhile ago, but nobody knew then who he was or where he came from.

  28. Congratulations to all! So good to see happy young couples in love.

  29. Ben's style sure is different from when he started courting Jessa.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Do we know when Jinger and Jeremy got engaged because they appear to be wearing the same outfits and filmed these on the same day.

    1. They did film this videos just after the proposal, and the proposal was filmed by tlc qs well, it's very clear.

  31. Congratulations. I miss your show. Up channel still airs 7th heaven which makes no sense since Stephen Collins admitted sexual abuse to young girls. This hurts me alot to know Joshua is receiving help and no one in the world can be greatfull for his accomplishments. I miss watching your family grow up. I will continue to keep your family in my prayers and to wish for the UP channel and the advertiser's to see that your family shows gods values and love. What Joshua did was wrong, but it should never have gotten as big as it did. Stephen Collins played a minister on a show. They showed his story once on tv and done. This is not fair. Anyway, please stay safe and healthy. How's Josie? Again I wish your family the best miss you all.

    1. Why do you say "your family"? You do know that this blog isn't run by the Duggars, right?

      Delete
    2. When he started courting Jessa he was 17-18, now he's 21 and a father. It's normal that growing up you change your style.

  32. If they are taking the bible literally about the whole women not wearing men's clothing and using that as their reason not to wear pants...why is it ok for Derick to have long hair and wear it in a ponytail? I see that as a man doing a woman thing. Opinions?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Someone will argue that long hair is Biblical. There's always some sort of rationale to make what you want to think or do seem OK.

      Delete
    2. I agree with you. It does seem like a double standard.

      Delete
    3. Great point.

  33. Wow that was fast. How long were they dating before they got engaged?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I want to get engaged too :(
