AceShowbiz - Jeremiah Duggar is getting closer to hearing wedding bells. The former "19 Kids and Counting" star is engaged to Hannah Wissmann less than three months after going public with their relationship.
The 23-year-old TLC star posted on his Instagram page on Thursday, January 6 a series of photos from the engagement. In the first slide, he could be seen getting down on one knee while popping the question. "She said YES!!!!" he wrote in the caption.
"Hannah, getting to know you for the past year has been so incredible! I can't even find the words to describe it," Jeremiah gushed. He added, "You are the best thing that has ever happened to me and I cannot wait to marry you. I love you!!"
Jeremiah went on to thank Hannah's family as well as his twin brother Jedidiah Duggar and sister-in-law Katey Nakatsu Duggar. "Thank you to everyone who helped make the day possible!! The Wissmann family and Jed & Katey went above and beyond to make it special," so he wrote.
Taking to her own page, Hannah posted a similar series of pictures, including one close-up of her ring. "YES!!!! A thousand times, yes!!!" her caption read. "Making memories with you is my favorite and I cannot wait to spend a lifetime making more. You are an answer to prayer, a dream come true, the love of my life and my very best friend. I love you, Jeremiah!"
"A huge thank you to each person who made it the most special evening ever!! My fiance, my family and Jed & Katey totally surprised me with all of my favorite things," Hannah added. She concluded her post by describing the special moment, "It was perfect!!"
Duggar first announced that he's in relationship with Hannah in October, writing on Instagram that he had "never been so happy." In a note accompanying their photos, he penned, "Getting to know each other has been one of the greatest joys of our lives! We are excited to start sharing our story with all of you and to see what God has in store for our future."
His parents Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar also shared a statement on Instagram at the time. "We are so happy for our son Jeremiah and his relationship with Hannah Wissmann!" they wrote underneath a picture of the happy pair. "Jeremiah is a faithful man who has trusted God and prayed for the right girl to come into his life in His time. We have absolutely loved getting to know Hannah and the Wissmann family better this year!"
"Hannah is a dynamic, Godly young lady, that we love -- and not just because she frequently brings us homemade cinnamon rolls!" they gushed. "We are thrilled for Jeremiah and Hannah as they both continue to seek the Lord about their future together!"
