Joy-Anna Duggar won’t be short on chaperones during her courtship with boyfriend Austin Forsyth. Jessa Seewald has revealed she’s looking forward to outings with her little sister and her new courting partner.
“We’re super happy for ya’ll and look forward to hanging out with ya’ll more and going out on a double date sometime,” Jessa shared in a video on her blog, congratulating the couple. Jessa’s husband, Ben Seewald, added that he was anticipating the “good conversations” they would have during their outings. “It’s an exciting time of life! We love ya’ll!” Jessa concluded.
The soon-to-be mother of two shared some additional thoughts on her 19-year-old sister’s relationship Thursday, writing on Instagram that she “can’t believe Joy’s caught herself a feller!”
“She’s smack dab in the middle of 8 boys in the family lineup ... Seems like just yesterday she was just a little tomboy playing with green plastic army men and running around the fighting nerf gun wars with her bros!” Jessa wrote, gushing about how her sibling has grown into a “beautiful, Godly young lady.”
The 24-year-old ended her post with a special message directed at Austin. “Austin, ya got yourself a good one!” she quipped.
Jessa and Ben are not the only Duggar family members to speak out about Joy’s relationship with the former reality star, which was announced Tuesday during the “Counting On” Season 2 finale. Jill and Derick Dillard have also showed their support for Joy and Austin’s courtship.
“Austin and Joy we’re excited for your courtship,” Derick said on in a video blog Thursday while her sister Jill sat beside him. “Just remember seek God first in every area of your life, including your relationship and everything else will work out,” he advised.
Joy and Austin’s courtship will play out during the upcoming installment of “Counting On.” Check out TLC’s trailer for the 2017 episodes HERE.
