Who's ready for another Duggar wedding?

Jill Duggar, the second oldest daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, announced her engagement to Derick Dillard this morning. The duo have been courting (with some major parental supervision) on this season of TLC's 19 Kids & Counting and were originally introduced by Jill's dad.

The couple began dating while Derick was in Nepal for a mission trip and chatted via video conferencing before finally meeting in person. Derick, 25, popped the question last month during a casual afternoon stroll, where the couple was serenaded by a group of musicians.

Jill, 22, who is studying to be a midwife, and her accountant fiance were only able to engage in a 'side-hug' during the initial months of their relationship.

Since their engagement, the two have also reached another major highlight: they are now holding hands! They have, however, chosen to save their first kiss for their wedding day. Aww!

Jill's next big decision: Figuring out the size of her bridal party. With eight sisters, we're sure she'll have plenty of help figuring out her wedding details!

Are you excited to watch another Duggar wedding?
