After just two weeks of courting, the second oldest Duggar son decided to introduce his then-girlfriend to the family, and their reaction could not have been more priceless.
“I literally started crying because I was like, ‘You’re kidding me? Is this a joke or is this real?’” his sister Joy-Anna admitted. “I was really shocked.”
John’s twin sister Jana was surprised by the news, too, but she approved of her brother’s romance. “She’s just, I think, perfect for him. I think they really, I don’t know, complete each other,” she said.
As Duggar fans know, John-David and Abbie wed on Nov. 3.
