Joy-Anna Duggar & Austin Forsyth Got Married!

And the Duggar family isn't done with weddings yet as Joy-Anna's 22-year-old older brother Joseph is all set to marry his girlfriend, 19-year-old Kendra Caldwell, after she accepted his proposal. The couple exclusively told the publication that they are happy and excited about finally tying the knot.

Joy-Anna Duggar Wednesday Austin Forsyth, her fiancé of three months, Friday. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar wrote on Friday.

Leading up to the wedding, Joy-Anna and Austin tried to keep their plans private, though an Arkansas newspaper wound up revealing that the pair was marrying sooner than expected by sharing that they had filed for a marriage license, and according to their county's rules, that meant the couple would need to Wednesday within 60 days in order for their license to remain valid.

"We love you, Joy and Austin and are so happy for you both, as you embark on this exciting journey together!" the caption concluded.

While news of Joy-Anna's wedding comes as a surprise for fans, it wasn't the only bombshell the Duggar Family dropped over the course of a few hours.

The 19-year-old Duggar daughter and Austin announced their courtship in November last year and their engagement early in March. The two were friends for almost 15 years before dating.

The Duggar family has a lot to celebrate! Our sweet Joe is on the verge of starting his own family.

Joy-Anna's parents, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, also gushed about the wedding on Instagram. "Showing him how much I appreciate him, it's been incredible", Joy-Anna said. "It's a really wonderful moment!"

A new season of "Counting On", which will feature a special dedicated to Joy-Anna and Austin's wedding (and presumably Joseph and Kendra's engagement) in the first episode, premieres June 12 on TLC. Congrats to Joseph and Kendra!
