Jessa Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting is engaged to Ben Seewald, ABC News has confirmed.

“We are so blessed to be engaged!” the couple said in a statement. “God has written an amazing story through our courtship, and another chapter has just begun! We are thrilled to see what the future holds — especially the wedding bells!”

Duggar, 21, began a courtship with Seewald last September. Not long after, she took his name for her Twitter handle.

“Courtship is a new season of life. It’s exciting,” she told Good Morning America last year. “We call it dating with a purpose and not just frivolous, really considering the person as a potential life partner.”

Duggar will be the third of her parents’ 19 kids to tie the knot. Her brother Josh, now a father of three, tied the knot in 2008, while her sister Jill wed Derick Dillard this past June.
