Jinger Duggar is officially engaged. Her family announced that her courtship with former pro soccer player Jeremy Vuolo was successful in a YouTube video Wednesday. The video features Jinger's sister, Jessa, and Jessa's husband, Ben Seewald, offering their congratulations to the latest Duggar to be heading down the aisle.

"We are so thrilled to be able to congratulate Jeremy and Jinger on their engagement," Seewald tells the camera while Jessa smiles and nods next to him. "We've been able to be alongside them through this whole process and we're just super-pumped for what God has in store for them in the future. We're just excited."

Jessa adds, "Definitely. We think it's super-awesome that [Jinger], my best friend from childhood — and Ben and Jeremy have been super-close for the past year or so — and so it's super-cool to see our best friends are now best friends and engaged. We wish you all the best and we're really excited to see what God has in store for the future for both of you. We love you all!"

Vuolo met Jinger's father, Jim Bob Duggar, on a mission trip. Seeing the potential for a relationship between Vuolo and Jinger, Jim Bob set up phone calls between the two of them. They met several months later.

Just last month, Jinger and Vuolo announced their courtship. In true Duggar form, once they found love, they didn't waste any time.
