It looks like another Duggar wedding is in the works! Ok, maybe we are jumping the gun just a bit, but Counting On star John David Duggar has just announced he is courting Abbie Grace Burnett, and in Duggar world, that means an engagement announcement is only a few weeks away.
Duggar and Burnett recently talked to Us Weekly about their courtship that started after they met through his church. Duggar, who is a pilot and police officer from Tontitown, Arkansas, flew to Oklahoma for a church event, and that’s when he met the 26-year-old Oklahoma nurse.
‘We fell in love very quickly, and it’s been a wonderful journey thus far,’ said the 28-year-old Duggar.
