According to Daily Mail, the 19-year-old Lauren started dating Josiah back in January, and they announced their engagement two months later, in March.
Despite their brief courting, the Swanson family-of-10 had been friends of the Duggars' for years. The young couple credits their families friendship as the perfect opportunity to get to know each other.
Josiah has nine brothers and nine sisters, seven of whom are already married, and his 28-year-old brother John-David is courting Abbie Grace Burnett.
The Duggars first rose to fame with their reality show 19 Kids and Counting. The TLC network canceled the show after the eldest son made headlines for molesting younger girls, including his sisters.
Following the cancelation, the Duggar girls became the stars of their own spin-off show, Counting On, which will return to TLC on July 30.
