Jessa Duggar engaged to Ben Seewald

Another member of the Duggar family is planning to walk down the aisle.

Jessa Duggar, of TLC's reality series "19 Kids and Counting," is engaged to Ben Seewald, they announced on Thursday.

"We are so blessed to be engaged! God has written an amazing story through our courtship, and another chapter has just begun!" they said in a statement, according to People. "We are thrilled to see what the future holds -- especially the wedding bells!"

Duggar, 21, and Seewald began courting last year. The couple decided to wait to hold hands until they are engaged and to save their first kiss for their wedding day.

Jessa is the third daughter of Jim Bob, 48, and Michelle, 47. The whole family appears on "19 Kids and Counting," which returns with new episodes on Sept. 2.

The Duggars just celebrated their daughter Jill's nuptials to Derick Dillard on June 21, at an event attended by more than 1,000 family and friends.
