Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's fourth daughter Jinger is dating a former San Antonio Scorpions goalkeeper and the 22-year-old shared the news with her fans via the official Duggar family blog and TLC's latest promo for the upcoming episode of Jill And Jessa Counting On.
The Duggar daughter is dating Jeremy Vuolo, who was a goalkeeper for American soccer team San Antonio Scorpions. "As opposed to a more casual dating relationship, we really want to honor the Lord, and be very intentional about how we move forward," Vuolo, 28, said in the video announcement.
The couple met last year while on a mission trip and following the strict family rules for courtship, Vuolo took the senior Duggar's permission before starting his official courtship with the reality TV personality.
"I met Jeremy last May and then we had the opportunity to go on a mission trip together. It was there that I really saw his heart and admired his character," Jinger told the camera. Click here to view photos released by the Duggars.
The duo's journey as a couple will be featured in the family's current show Counting On which airs every Tuesday at 9/8pm CT in the US.
"We are very excited to begin this journey together, and for you to join us along the way," Jeremy announces in the video.
Who is Jeremy Vuolo: The 28-year-old football player was born in Philadelphia and has played as the goalkeeper with the New York Red Bulls before playing for the Scorpions. He is vocal about his religious beliefs.
In a video shared by TLC, Jessa's husband Ben Seewald and Jeremy can be seen answering fan questions about faith and forgiveness and the network speculates that Seewald might have played cupid for the love struck couple.
It will be interesting to see whether, the fourth Duggar daughter will follow her family rules and limit her affections to 'side hugs' with her boyfriend as fans know, the evangelical Christian family only has hard rules for courtship.
