After years of rumored relationships, John David-Duggar has officially confirmed he’s courting. The “Counting On” star revealed his romance with girlfriend and courting partner Abbie Grace Burnett on Tuesday. So, who is she?

Where They Met

John-David, 28, revealed to Us Weekly that despite only just introducing Abbie to fans of his family's TLC series, they have known each other for some time.

“Abbie and I are just so excited, we’ve known of each other for several years,” the third eldest Duggar told the magazine. “...It’s been a wonderful journey thus far.”

How Serious Are They?

When it comes to courtships, the Duggars usually don’t announce their relationship until they’re serious (sans Josiah Duggar’s failed first romance). Like most of his siblings, it appears John-David has big plans with Abbie, 26. John David revealed he and his better half “fell in love very quickly.”

Where Is She From?

Abbie told the magazine she is a native to Oklahoma. She added that they “connected” on a deeper level when “John flew in for a church event” in her home state a couple of months ago.

Has She Been Linked To Him Before?

Just like his twin sister Jana, who has been linked to several men over the years, John-David has been rumored to be relationships in the past. However, none of those women have been Abbie. Check out John-David's complete "dating" history here.

What Do The Duggars Think?

Hours after John-David's relationship with Abbie was revealed to the public, his parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, have spoken out. The couple posted on their blog on Tuesday that they are "excited" about their son's courtship.

"John David brings our hearts so much joy and we’ve watched him faithfully pray, wait, and trust God for the right girl to come along!" wrote the pair. "Now, a beautiful relationship has blossomed between the two of them. We can’t wait to see what the Lord will do in the future."
