19 Kids and Counting's Jill Duggar is in a Courtship!


Jill-derick-duggar-600There's another couple-in-the making in the "19 Kids & Counting" family! Jill Duggar, 22, and Derick Dillard, 25, have announced their courtship. Jill is the second oldest daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and has 18 siblings.

Jill was introduced to Derick by her father, Jim Bob, while Derick was doing missionary work in Nepal. The two got to know each other via text messages and long Skype calls.

"I was really impressed with his character and I was surprised how much we have the same vision and life goals," Jill told People.com.

Derick shares his courting secrets saying, "We have a large pool of chaperones," and that, "You have to come in armed with good jokes and I usually have Skittles as well. It has been such a huge blessing to get to see her a few times a week."
