On a recent episode of Counting On, Austin asked for Joy-Anna’s dad Jim Bob’s blessing to enter into a courtship with the 19-year-old.

“You know, over the years, I have just been watching and I really admire her heart for the Lord and her character,” Austin explained to Jim. “She’s such a diligent worker. She gets all the younger siblings working. She’s a good delegator and then, of course, her beauty.”

Counting On

Joy-Anna and Austin have been friends for nearly 15 years and announced they had officially started courting on Nov. 15.
