Counting On: Jinger Duggar is engaged to former soccer player Jeremy Vuolo



Jinger Duggar and former pro soccer player Jeremy Vuolo are engaged just one month after announcing their courtship. 

The Duggar family announced the couple's engagement on their website. 

According to People, the couple met through Jinger's older sister Jessa and her husband Ben Seewald. 

The couple got to know one another better by going on mission trips together. 

"It was there that I really saw his heart and really admired his character," Jinger Duggar told People. 

Vuolo is originally from Downingtown, Pennsylvania, and played for the Major League Soccer team the New York Red Bulls. He reportedly retired in 2014 and became more serious about working in ministry. 

The couple's courtship will likely be featured in the new season of Counting On when it airs on TLC on Aug. 23 at 8 p.m.
