They’re married! John David Duggar and Abbie Grace Burnett tied the knot over the weekend, and now, the newlyweds are gushing about their big day. TLC shared a clip of the Counting On stars, but there was one moment, in particular, that Abbie says was her favorite — the kiss!
“Two of my favorite moments was the opening song, just welcoming in God’s presence and John’s tender kiss at the end,” she gushed. Oh, boy.
The Duggars are known for their short courtships and quick engagements — but JD and his new wife actually set a record for the shortest courtship of all time — 29 days, to be exact! Of course, at 26 and 28 years old, these two weren’t about to waste any time.
One fan theory suggests the famous fam straight up runs down the aisle so they can go make out, and uh, get it on. “Kendra [Caldwell] and Lauren [Swanson] said they were surprised” about getting engaged, “which makes me wonder if the boys talk to Jim Bob about having feelings or desires about women and Jim Bob doesn’t want another scandal so he goes and finds them a wife,” someone recently wrote on reddit. Other users quickly chimed in, adding, “I always had a suspicion of this, too. Between Josh and Jill both having been quoted by others as ‘hormonal’ and ‘boy crazy’ respectively, and then their rather immediate courtships and marriages… it wouldn’t surprise me if Jim Bob uses his local celebrity status for that.”
TBH, there is actually some truth to this. After all, Jill Duggar, Jinger Duggar, Joy-Anna Duggar, and Joseph Duggar have all gone from single to courting to engaged to married in no more than seven months total. Josiah Duggar went from single to courting to engaged in just two months. So yeah, you could say they have, ahem, urges.
John David said in the TLC clip that saying “I do” was “surreal” because “I’ve dreamed about that for the past… ever since I met Abbie.” Yeah, we bet you have, buddy!
