Former ‘Counting On’ Star Jeremiah Duggar Announces He’s in a Courtship with Hannah Wissmann

Cue the engagement announcement in 3…2…

Another Duggar spawn is off the market. 

Jeremiah Duggar, 22, is officially courting 26-year-old Hannah Wissmann, with the former Counting On announcing to his fans on Instagram on Wednesday that he’s “never been so happy” and “never felt so blessed.” 

“Getting to know each other has been one of the greatest joys of our lives,” Jeremiah added on Instagram. “We are excited to start sharing our story with all of you and to see what God has in store for our future.” 

(Hannah– who comes from a well-known Fundie family– posted an identical statement to her own Instagram.)

Fans of the Duggar family began speculating this summer that Jeremiah and Hannah were not only courting, but actually engaged. The rumors were reportedly sparked by a photo Hannah posted in August, despite Jeremiah not appearing in the photo with her. 

“A content life is not defined by obtaining everything you want, but by noticing and appreciating everything that God has given you today,” she captioned the photo, taken in Mississippi. “Which is far more wonderful than we could ever deserve!” 

Jeremiah’s courting announcement comes nearly seven months after his twin brother, Jedidiah Duggar, married Katey Nakatsu in a surprise ceremony held in Arkansas. Jed and Katey are already expecting their first child because…Duggar.

“What do you say ladies? Quadruple roomies for life?”

Jana Duggar, the oldest Duggar woman to remain unmarried, was previously rumored to be linked to Hannah’s 27-year-old brother, Stephen Wissmann. However, Jana never confirmed or denied the rumors, which stopped after Stephen was seen dancing with girls at a party, and Jana was spotted hugging a mystery man at a Razorbacks game in September. 

“That’s right… I’m single AND down to hug before marriage!”

For those wondering how Jeremiah will provide for his future wife and their inevitable fleet of children, Jeremiah applied this year for a business license for Hometown Construction, LLC and he is a licensed real estate agent for Good Neighbor Realty– along with Jed and other Duggar bros James and Joseph. 

Jeremiah also has his commercial pilot and flight instructor licenses. 

Hannah is the ninth of the Wissmann family’s 13 children. On the family’s official website, she is praised for her musical and culinary talents.

“Our energetic, social butterfly, Hannah is a skilled and creative young woman,” the website states. “She loves spending time in the kitchen — trying new recipes and creating culinary masterpieces. Our home also greatly benefits from her interest in interior design and seasonal décor. She is one of our lead vocalists and skillfully adds her fiddle to our musical selections.”

Jer and Hannah received plenty of well wishes from Jer’s many, many siblings.

“YES! So happy for you two,” Joy Duggar Forsyth wrote in the comment section of Jer’s post.

“Good lookin’ couple right there,” Jessa Duggar Seewald commented. 

“Congrats y’all,” Kendra and Joseph Duggar wrote using their shared Instagram account.

For those hoping to still snag a Duggar spawn, there are currently three Duggars over the age of 18 who are still single. In addition to 31-year-old Jana, there is 21-year-old Jason and 20-year-old James.

  1. Oh Jer, you are a bit late, your twin brother is already procreating! (and your younger brother is married also….this family is so weird)

    Isn’t Jana apparently getting to know a guy? (And no, it’s not Lawson Bates, that idiot is engaged now)

  2. After so many years of being used for money by their own parents, I just hope that the Duggar kids can find some happiness. They deserve relationships that aren’t purely transactional.

  3. He’s definitely the best looking son in that family! But why do all the wives look like a Duggar sister?? Same hair, sandals, poses, everything…


  4. Ok couple of things, with the exception of Jana, isn’t 26 yo pretty old for a Fundie woman to be “courting”? And why would her first choice be an inexperienced 22 yo?? Granted, I suppose they’re all inexperienced Fundies. I really can’t believe Jana is 31 and still single. Typically I wouldn’t think twice about that, but given their lifestyle, that’s damn near geriatric! And was she seen side-hugging a guy at a ball game, or……???

    1. This age gap isn’t surprising, I knew a woman who was 12 years older than her husband in my old evangelical church and to make matters worse she was his bible camp counselor.
