Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar walked another daughter down the aisle, RadarOnline.com has learned. Joy-Anna Duggar and new hubby Austin Forsyth tied the knot on Friday night, May 26, after a three-month engagement.
The secret wedding was revealed after Joy-Anna, 19, and Austin, 22, posted a video on the family’s website telling fans they were officially married. The two looked like they had just walked out of the church, as the former 19 Kids And Counting reality star and Austin were seen sitting on a couch in their wedding attire.
“We feel so happy and so excited,” the couple told PEOPLE magazine on Friday. “Leading up, it was so surreal until I was walking down the aisle and then I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, it’s actually here,’” Joy-Anna said, adding, “We are going to be traveling for our honeymoon for awhile.”
Insiders said that while the church was a private event with just family and close friends, cameras were still rolling since the footage is set to premiere on June 12 during the new season of Counting On.
As Radar reported, Joy-Anna and Austin announced their engagement in March. The two have known each other nearly 15 years and the family was very close to him in the time leading up to their courtship announcement in November.
“I think the moment I said ‘I do’ is just a huge burden off my shoulder,” Austin said during the sneak peek teaser clip. “Finally being married to her is just a tremendous weight lifted off."
But Joy-Anna’s big day was quickly overshadowed by another member anxious to get married. Her 22-year-old brother Joseph Duggar popped the question to his 18-year-old girlfriend of three months during the wedding on Friday night.
“I was definitely nervous going into it,” Joseph told PEOPLE magazine after Kendra Caldwell said yes. “But I wasn’t afraid that she was going to say no, because she has said, ‘I’m just waiting on you!’
