The first-time parents revealed to People that they are “so excited” to be having a baby together, due in March.  This news comes only eight weeks after their June 21st wedding in Springdale, Arkansas, where they shared their first kiss in front of over 1,000 guests.  No pressure or anything…

As for the newly engaged and hand-holding couple, Seewald proposed to Duggar last week at the end of a scavenger hunt after an 11-month courtship.  Seewald explained that this was a plan that had been in the making for quite some time now, because he was getting ideas on how to make a creative proposal.  Duggar had no idea what to expect, but was anticipating a happy ending.

With every clue, I was really excited, but I was also nervous the whole time.  I was like, ‘I don’t know where he is. He could show up at any point. He’s probably behind me right now on his knees.’”

We are so blessed to be engaged! God has written an amazing story through our courtship, and another chapter has just begun! We are thrilled to see what the future holds – especially the wedding bells!”

  2. I am really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

    • I don’t believe so! I use Google Chrome and have never had any problems and I don’t think anyone else has mentioned that they have. I’m not sure what the issue may be!
