Joy-Anna Duggar, 19, engaged to boyfriend of less than a year Austin Forsyth

She said yes!

Joy-Anna Duggar's beau Austin Forsyth popped the question on Thursday, and the newly-engaged couple revealed all the details.

"We just got engaged!" the 19-year-old told Us Weekly. "I'm so excited to be engaged to my best friend -- Austin made it so romantic, it's amazing."

Her fiance was just as excited about the life-changing event: "I'm just overwhelmed with emotion. I'm so excited to be engaged because that means the next step is marriage, and I'm excited to see what the future holds for us!"

The two, who have known each other for 15 years, announced in November of last year that they officially started courting. Austin asked for Joy-Anna's permission at a wooded area he holds near and dear to his heart, so we knew he was already a keeper from the start!

"It's a place that I've come many times to just get away and spend time with the Lord," he said at that time. "I just knew that this was the place that I wanted to ask her."

In a recent episode of the family's TLC show, "Counting On," Austin asks Jim Bob, the Duggar family patriarch, for Joy-Anna's hand in marriage.

"Over the years, I've been watching, and I really admire her heart for the Lord and her character," Austin sweetly told Mr. Duggar. "She's such a diligent worker. She gets all the younger siblings working. She's a good delegator -- and, of course, her beauty."

After that romantic speech, of course the "19 Kids and Counting" star said he was "honored" to have Austin as her husband!

The proposal means another Duggar wedding to plan -- and we're sure Joy-Anna will have a lot of help. Her older sister, Jinger, got married last year to her former soccer player husband, Jeremy Vuolo, in a Pinterest-perfect ceremony. Jill also tied the knot in 2016 with a big bash just as incredible.

Jessa, tied the knot in 2014 and just recently welcomed her second child into the world, a beautiful baby boy.
