Jill Duggar, Derick Dillard


The big day has been chosen!

Just last week fans found out that 19 Kids and Counting's Jill Duggar is engaged to Derick Dillard, and now the two lovebirds have announced when they're tying the knot. According to the couple's wedding website, they'll be saying "I do" on June 21—yep, that soon!

(67 days to be exact. It says so on the website.)

Their site also includes a collection of stories about their relationship, including when Derick "met the girl of my dreams." Awww!

"The answer to my prayer came in August 2013, just before I left Nepal for a two week trip to Japan. During a conversation with Jim Bob, he mentioned how he thought Jill and I might get along well, having similar personalities and direction in life," Dillard wrote.

"He gave me Jill's phone number and we began texting, then emailing, then skyping/ talking on the phone. Over the next few months we became very grateful for modern technology as we continued to get to know each other better. Most of our conversations were centered around our values and life goals."

Luckily, Jim Bob was right and the pair hit it off. The proposal occurred March 29 during a post-lunch stroll in Bentonville, Ark. Jill, 22, didn't think twice when their chaperones—her sisters Jana, 24, and Joy, 16—started lagging behind, nor did she question why a stranger on a park bench asked if he could sing the young couple a love song.

But once the words started belting out of his mouth, she realized what was going on.

Congratulations to the sweet couple!
