Their relationship has really, uh, taken off! John David Duggar and Abbie Grace Burnett just announced their courtship late last month, and now, they can't stop posting pics on social media. John and Abbie took to their joint Instagram on Sunday, July 15 to share a cute snap in the air together, which marks their fourth post ever on social media.
In the shot, Abbie, 26, has her arm around John, 28, and she smiled wide into the camera while her man piloted the plane. "Exploring cloud nine :)" they wrote in the caption.
Fans flooded the comments, and many of them seemed happy that John David has finally found himself a young woman to court. "Adorable caption!! Cute couple!" one person wrote. Another added, "I'm glad John finally met 'the one.' Nice looking couple." A third chimed in, "So happy for you both, wishing you a lifetime of happiness and love!!!"
At 28 years old, John David and his twin sister Jana Duggar are both considered a little "old" in the Christian dating scene. Since the Duggars are fundamentalist Christians, they don't believe in sex before marriage and it's not uncommon for children to marry young — their little sister Joy-Anna was only 19 years old when she married her husband Austin Forsyth last May. There was a lot of speculation as to why John David and Jana had remained single while their younger siblings were marrying off, and it seems like they both were just waiting patiently for the right person to come along.
John even addressed his singledom in the caption of his very first Instagram photo with Abbie. "So, I reconsidered the whole 'bachelor ‘til the rapture' thing," he wrote, quoting a popular quote that Christians use to describe men who seem like they will remain single forever.
