Joy-Anna Duggar has confirmed that she is indeed engaged to Austin Forsyth, her boyfriend of only five months. The 19-year old Duggar revealed in a “Counting On” exclusive that Austin proposed to her during a horseback riding outing. Meanwhile, Josh Duggar was seen in his first public photo released after the scandal that caused the cancellation of the Duggar family’s show, “19 Kids and Counting.”
The newly engaged couple have been friends for 15 years and have been on a romantic relationship since last November. Joy-Anna Duggar revealed that her sisters, Johannah and Jennifer Duggar, were able to witness the memorable moment since they acted as her chaperones according to Mail Online.
Joy-Anna Duggar notes that with the engagement, she and Austin can now finally hold hands! She expressed her happiness that now, they can do their wedding planning and get to know each other better. US Weekly reports that she is so excited to be engaged to her best friend. Details of the forthcoming wedding have not yet been announced.
To the fans who are worried that the young couple may not be ready for the big leap, Austin assures them in front of the “Counting On” cameras that he and Joy-Anna Duggar are ready despite their young age. The patriarch, Jim Bob, said he is relieved about seeing the young man’s true intentions for his daughter. Austin has promised to marry Joy-Anna when they started courting.
Meanwhile, Josh Duggar apparently took the first step in making a public comeback. He recently celebrated his 29th birthday and one family member posted a photo of him with his own family on Facebook. The caption of the photo read,"We love you, your amazing wife and sweet children."
The people who have been curious as to how Josh Duggar’s marriage has been doing since it was rocked by the scandal probably got their answer in the photo. His family is intact and happy judging from the photo.
More details of Joy-Anna Duggar’s engagement and upcoming wedding are expected to be featured in the new episodes of TLC’s “Counting On.” Perhaps Josh Duggar will slowly get his way into the public eye through the show as well.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved.
