Jed Duggar married Katey Nakatsu on 3 April in a beautiful Arkansas ceremony.

But the Counting On star has surprised fans by revealing they had "quietly developed" their romance over the past year.

A courtship was never announced by the family, and fans first discovered the wedding date when Without A Crystal Ball was sent a wedding invitation.

However, Jed has now broken his silence, and shared details of their relationship with fans.
