The pair also shared the news on Instagram

"For a long time I have prayed for my future spouse, not knowing who that person would be. God answered my prayers far beyond what I could have ever imagined in Katey!" he wrote alongside a gorgeous wedding picture of the pair.

"We have enjoyed quietly developing our relationship over the past year and every moment together has been amazing!"

In a video posted, Jed spoke of the moment "the nurses rushed in" when Katey's labor took a turn for the worse.

"It was really scary," said Jed. "They woke us up and had Katey flip over on her belly and do some different things. And his heart rate was able to go back up."

Jed shared that Truett means 'warrior for Christ,' and Oliver means 'peace'.
