On March 29, Derick Dillard and Jill Duggar went for a walk in a park near her Arkansas hometown.
She wasn’t fazed when her sisters, who were chaperoning her date, began to trail behind or when a random singer asked to serenade the young couple. Only during the second verse of the song did she realize the lyrics were about her and Derick.
“I shared how much I loved her, how I couldn’t imagine life without her, and I asked her, ‘Will you marry me?’” Derick recalls of the moment he got down on one knee and presented her with the custom-designed, .63-carat diamond ring he got in Israel.
