She Said Yes!: '19
Kids and Counting'
Star Jessa Duggar
Engaged to Ben
The Duggar family is officially one member bigger!
Ben Seewald got down on one knee last night, Aug. 14, and asked Jessa Duggar to marry him—and, of course, she said yes!
“We are so blessed to be engaged!” the future Mr. and Mrs. Seewald 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 exciting news comes 11 months after the couple began courting—which the Duggars describe as “dating with the intention to marry.”
To celebrate their “11th monthiversary,” the 19-year-old gifted the reality star with pearls and a heartwarming note, which she shared on Instagram.
“My dearest Jessa Lauren, These elegant pearls looked quite majestic when I picked them out. However they were a bit lonely. What good are such beautiful pearls if not to have the grace of being worn by one so elegant and majestic as yourself? These pearls were lonely…just like I am when we’re apart; but not anymore. I love you, my precious princess. Your man, Ben.”
“Y’all, my guy is seriously the most romantic ever!” she gushed in the caption of the pic. “I love you!”
Hey… at least she knows how lucky she is!
Congrats to the entire Duggar and Seewald families on this exciting news!
