“God has richly blessed us by adding Lauren to our family. We know He has great plans for them and we are overjoyed that He has brought them together. Thank you to all for prayers and support as Josiah and Lauren start their journey together,” they wrote.
The couple announced their engagement in March, a little over a month after revealing they were “courting.”
It was also announced recently that Josiah’s brother John-David has begun courting Abbie Grace Burnett, which means another Duggar engagement could be around the corner soon.
