Jessa Duggar is engaged. The star of the Reality television show 19 Kids and Counting Star and her fiance Ben Seewald have been courting for eleven month and now they are ready to marry. TLC has confirmed on Friday, Aug. 15, 2014.
“We are so blessed to be engaged!” the happy husband and wife-to-be said in a statement. “God has written an amazing story through our courtship, and another chapter has just begun! We are thrilled to see what the future holds — especially the wedding bells!”
The twenty one year old star and nineteen year old Seawld just recently celebrated their anniversary of eleven months, with a pearl bracelet, handwritten love note, which he decorated with hearts.
“What good are such beautiful pearls if not to have the grace of being worn by one so elegant and majestic as yourself?” the note read. “These pearls were lonely…just like I am when we’re apart; but not anymore! I love you my precious princess!”
Also said Jessa will save that first kiss when she is married.
This is the family’s rules for courtship, she and Seewald have only shared occasional “side hugs” until now, and always have a chaperone on their dates together.
“When I’m with him, around him, I think he brings out the best in me,” she said on her family’s reality show when they first started courting. Added Ben: “I think we’re a good match.”
