There is a wedding on the way for one “19 Kids and Counting” star. Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard have transitioned from courting to being officially engaged. E! Online shared the details on April 9.

The new season of “19 Kids and Counting” is sharing some of the courting process between Jill and Derick. Clearly things went well during that process, as Dillard proposed to Duggar on March 29. The two were walking through a park, it seems, when Duggar sisters Jana and Joy lagged behind a bit and a stranger started singing a song. Jill says that by the second verse she knew it was about the two of them.

Derick got down on one knee as he asked Jill to marry him. He gave her a custom-designed ring, and they even held hands.That is a big step for someone from this conservative family, as they are waiting to share their first kiss for their wedding day and had decided they would not even go so far as holding hands until they were engaged.

There is no word as of yet regarding a wedding date, but fans of “19 Kids and Counting” will be excited to see all of the preparations and the big event. Congratulations to Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard on their engagement!
