They became engaged in November 2020

The pair first announced their courtship in September 2020.

"Claire and I are excited to share that we are in a courtship," Justin said at the time.

He added: "God brought Claire in my life and I wasn’t really expecting it, but he brought her along right when I needed her. Ever since then, I just knew that she was the one. Claire has a lot of good qualities and I can sit here and tell you all of them, but there are so many good things that I see in her. I’m so blessed to have her in my life."


The Duggars are devout independent Christian Baptists

They confirmed their engagement in November 2020 with a statement which read: "We cannot wait to be married and are looking forward to a life together of faith in Christ, love for one another and happiness!"

The Duggars are devout independent Christian Baptists, who pride themselves on their conservative outlook.

They follow strict guidelines in their day to day life, including no alcohol and no bare skin on show, and men and women are not allowed to be alone together unless married.

The family found fame with their TLC reality series 19 Kids and Counting; they now star in spin-off show Counting On.
