Joy-Anna Duggar, Austin Forsyth

They may be hitched and expecting their first little one, but when did Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth know they were meant to be? The newlyweds discussed the moment they knew the other person was The One on this week's Counting On, and their love has obviously only grown from there.

  • Joy-Anna and Austin opened up on the show about how they knew they wanted to move forward toward marriage.

    They've been friends since they were little children, and Austin said that he had gotten to know her pretty well through the different ministries they've been involved in together. But it wasn't until Austin was in Mississippi for flight school that he realized how he felt.

    The 19-year-old said that she first really noticed Austin in that way when he was over at her house playing volleyball. She said that when they were done playing, her dad, Jim Bob Duggar, asked Austin to share his testimony. "Just to see his heart, really, was the first thing that attracted me to him," she explained.

  • Once they knew, they KNEW.

    Austin asked Joy to court last November, and she recalled, "I could not believe it. Having interest in this guy for so long and then this having him and asking me was amazing."
