The Duggar family keeps on growing! On Wednesday, July 25th, it was confirmed that another one of the Duggar brothers — 28-year-old John David Duggar — is engaged!
John and his fiancee Abbie Burnett announced their engagement in a joint statement via the Duggar’s webpage. According to PEOPLE, the news comes roughly one month after they revealed their courtship — a relationship tradition the Duggar family members partake in ahead of marriage.
“Wow! We are engaged! This feels even more real than before! It was a special moment to share together,” they confirmed. “The proposal and the ‘YES’ really solidified that we want to spend the rest of our lives together.”
“One of the most amazing things about following Christ is being able to trust Him to direct your path and lead your life,” the couple added. “We are so thankful that He led us to one another. Now we need to start thinking about a wedding!”
The proposal was extremely romantic. John asked for Abbie’s hand in marriage in an airplane hanger with a sign that said, “Abbie, Will You Marry Me?”
This exciting news comes shortly after John’s brother, Josiah Duggar, got married to Lauren Swanson. See the breathtaking wedding photos here!
Congratulations to the happy couple! Stay tuned for wedding details and pictures.
