Well that didn’t take long – the Duggars are back in the spotlight right in time for the summer premiere of Jill & Jessa: Counting On. The reality TV stars have decided Jinger and her dating courting-life will be the focus this season. Anything to distract from Josh, right?

“We’re happy to announce we’re officially courting,” Jinger says in a new TLC video.

“Which means as opposed to a more casual dating relationship, we really want to honour the Lord and be very intentional about how we move forward,” explains Jeremy Vuolo, a soccer player with the San Antonio Scorpions.

The couple met last May and have since gone on a mission together where Jinger started to fall for the athlete.

“It was there that I really saw his heart and really admired his character,” she says of their trip to the Philippines. “It was after that he contacted my dad and asked if we could get to know each other.”

That’s right, they needed permission to ‘get to know each other’ after meeting through Jessa and Ben Seewald.

“We are very excited to begin this journey together,” says Vuolo.

I guess we can expect an engagement this season, but will Josh be invited to the wedding? We’ll keep you posted.
