Not only did TLC cancel the show after news of Josh's investigation came to light, but they were recently caught editing footage of his younger sisters' spin-off show, Jill and Jessa: Counting On, to include a fake sun glare in order to edit Josh out of the family friendly show during a scene of JInger's wedding to her new husband Jeremy Vuolo.
The 24-year-old reality star, husband Ben Seewald and sons Spurgeon and Henry congratulated the 19-year-old bride-to-be and her fiancé, Austin Forsyth, in a new video Monday.
In a recent episode Austin even asked Joy-Anna's dad, Jim Bob Duggar, for permission to begin the relationship, he said: "Over the years, I've been watching, and I really admire her heart for the Lord and her character".
As Spurgeon coos at the camera, Jessa adds, "We're super excited for y'all getting engaged, and we are looking forward to the big day - your wedding day".
She adds: "The little boys say congratulations too". Here's Henry and Spurgey saying, 'Yay!
"Hey Joy and Austin, congratulations!"
"I knew we were ready for this next step because everything fell into place. And so, Austin made this day really really special, and then he asked me to marry him and I said yes", she recounted.More news: Surface Pro 5 to launch this April?
The Duggars are known for their strict courtship standards, and Joy-Anna followed her father's rules in every one of them. Joy-Anna, on the other hand, said that their engagement now gives them the license to hold hands and thanks their fans for their well wishes.
"I'm so excited to be engaged, because that means the next step is marriage, and I'm excited to see what the future holds for us!"
Austin explained that they felt that they were ready for this next step and that the timing was flawless. "I just knew that this was the place that I wanted to ask her". She's such a diligent worker.
Joy-Anna and Austin join the ever-growing list of Duggar children who have moved into adulthood under the watchful eye of TLC viewers ever since the Duggar family first came to the country's attention with 17 Kids & Counting in 2008. Josh Duggar was the first to get married (to Anna Keller); they now have four children, as of this writing.
Assuming she makes it down the aisle next, Joy-Anna will be the fifth Duggar child to tie the knot.
