The reality star gushed about how her future hubby, 19, popped the question after going on a horseback riding outing. Her younger sisters Johannah, 11, and Jennifer, 9, were also there for the big moment as the two were “chaperoning” the couple on their date.
The two first announced they were courting — which means dating with the intent to marry — back in November. Now that they have a wedding to plan, the two have started to hold hands, which has Joy absolutely over the moon (the Duggars opt not to engage in any intimate contact before marriage). She called the big milestone “pretty special.”

With a wedding to plan and a lifetime to look forward to together, it’s clear that both husband and wife could not be more thrilled about what’s to come.
“I’m just overwhelmed with emotion,” Austin said of the big day. “I’m so excited to see what the future holds for us!”
Congrats, you two!

The oldest Duggar got into hot water back in 2016 when it was revealed that he allegedly molested two of his sisters. The Duggar family released a statement about the incident and Josh has kept a low profile ever since. He's currently 28 and has four kids with his wife, Anna Keller.
