"So excited to share this news that we are now engaged," they said in a statement to People. "From both of us, thank you all for the countless well-wishes we've received during the courtship. We are so excited to take this next step in spending our lives together. We are so grateful for how the Lord has brought us together. It has been an incredible journey so far and we are excited about serving Christ together in the coming days."
The magazine reported that they’ve only been officially courting for a month, but met last May through her sister Jessa Duggar and her husband Ben Seewald.
People reported that “the couple's courtship will be a big part of the new season of Counting On when it returns to TLC Aug. 23,” despite the family’s previous show getting cancelled because of Josh Duggar’s admitted child sexual abuse and cheating.
Jinger new beau is not without scandal, either. The former New York Red Bulls player was once arrested for being “intoxicated,” although drinking is against the Duggars’ rules.
