Derick was doing missionary work in Nepal when Jim Bob connected him with Jill, and the two youngsters hit it off immediately, even if it was remotely.

"When we finally met in person in Nepal, we knew within days that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together," Jill Duggar said in a statement.

"When my dad first introduced Derick and I [remotely], we spent hours texting, calling, and talking on Skype while 8,000 miles away from each other."

"I feel like I'm dreaming," Dillard said of his engagement.

"It was great to grab her hand for the first time."

Any guy out there looking to date one of the Duggar family girls may need to lower his expectations as far as physical contact and affection concerned.

To say there won't be much is an understatement.

On the season premiere of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting this week, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar laid out the rules of courtship for their 19 children.

With two of the older kids, 20-year-old Jessa (pictured) and 22-year-old Jill, starting relationships with prospective mates, there was no time like the present.

"As far as our kids dating, we believe a lot of times if you're alone with the person, it can create desires that can kind of get stirred up," Jim Bob said.

"You don't have any accountability, and [that] can kind of lead to some hanky panky," he feels, and suffice it to say, "hanky panky" is a big no-no.

"Courtship is really about getting to know each other for the purpose of possibly getting engaged and getting married," the Arkansas father of 19 said.

Despite major health complications in recent years, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar are still trying for their 20th child together, a new report indicates.

Michelle confirmed that the TLC couple, who viewers saw celebrate their 29th wedding anniversary on last night's 19 Kids and Counting, is TTC.

As in trying to conceive.

While hoping that they'll be blessed with another pregnancy, they're simply "enjoying their grandbabies" and are "thankful and grateful" for their other 19 kids.

Michelle Duggar, for the record, is 47 and has been married to Jim Bob for 29 years, meaning she's pretty much been pregnant for their whole relationship. (And she also makes a mean Duggars tater tot casserole recipe!)

Michelle Duggar weighed in on the Texas legislature’s debate on a law that seek to restrict abortion in the state, calling the procedure a “baby holocaust.”

The conservative Christian star of the hit TLC show 19 Kids and Counting told a pro-life crowd in Austin that she is against abortion, to put it mildly.

Flanked by son Josh Duggar of the Family Research Council, she likened abortion to Hitler’s attempted eradication of the Jews in World War II.

"Baby holocaust" or not, the issue is being more hotly debated than ever thanks to a controversial Texas abortion bill that would severely limit its practice.

Josh Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame has accepted a job with the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., much to the dismay of GLAAD.

Josh Duggar, Family

Duggar, 25, announced on FRC President Tony Perkins' radio show that he is the new executive director of FRC Action, an affiliate of the FRC.

GLAAD spokesperson Wilson Cruz promptly ripped both of them:

"If Josh Duggar wants to make a living dehumanizing and denigrating LGBT people and their families, that's his business, but FRC's lies and stereotypes need to be treated as such."

"Josh's new boss, Tony Perkins, has actually accused LGBT equality advocates of being pawns of the devil. Fans of his family's reality show ought to know that."

Josh Duggar is making headlines. But, for once, it's not for because he's expecting another child.

The reality star and committed pro-creator is considering an executive position with the Family Research Council, a move that is not sitting well with GLADD President Herndon Graddick.

So Many Duggar Kids

"Family Research Council is without a doubt one of our country's most dangerous hate groups, led by the most anti-gay man in America, Tony Perkins," Graddick told E! News Friday.

The FRC lists its agenda as the advancement of "faith, family and freedom in public policy and the culture from a Christian worldview."

A couple hundred? Try $614!

That's what happens when you purchase shakes… and burgers… and fries for over two starting baseball lineups' worth of people.

It's also what happens when you eat in Manhattan.
