Another member of the Duggar clan is planning a wedding!
Jill Duggar, 22, revealed to People magazine that she is engaged to Derick Dillard, 25, after the couple courted for several months. "I am so happy," she tells the magazine. "Our story is so very unique. The first time we talked, he was in Japan, we met in Nepal, he spent time in India and Israel and then came back to Arkansas where he met my family. We have a very international story even though we live so close."
Jill officially began courting Derick in November and her family sees the process as focusing on getting to know someone as a potential spouse, rather than just traditional dating. The Duggar family stars in TLC's popular reality show 19 Kids & Counting.
"I feel like I'm dreaming," Derick told People of his engagement to Jill. "It was great to grab her hand for the first time."
Duggar patriarch Jim Bob -- whose family is based in northwest Arkansas -- explained how he became impressed with Derick after becoming aware of some missionary work he was doing in Nepal. "I was impressed with him as I got to know him over the years. He sounded like an amazing young man. I felt like from the beginning, they had similar personalities and goals. I thought they would hit it off."
