Dan Dillard – the brother of Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard – may be on his way to starting a Duggar-sized family of his own.

According to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Dan got engaged to girlfriend Deena Tougaw over the weekend.

The proposal took place in picturesque Monterrey, California.

Deena posted the above photo, along with a caption reading:

"On a beautiful pier, in an incredible small beach town in California, as the sun was setting, I said yes to my prince. I’ve never felt so loved in all my life.”

Dan also posted a pic of the engagement and wrote:

"She said yes! So glad that [Deena] accepted my proposal to marry me!” 

Despite reports that Jill and Derick were coming home this week, the couple is still performing missionary work in El Salvador.

Wifi service is scant in the village they’ve made their home for most of the past year, and sources say several days passed before Derick learned of Dan’s engagement.

Derick eventually was able to post the following comment on social media:

"Congratulations to my brother and future sister on their engagement! The things you find out when you get wifi while on the mission field LOL! May the Lord bless y’all as you seek him."

Last names aside, the two couples have a surprising amount in common.

Before Jill and Derick got engaged, they only knew each for a few months.

Dan and Deena followed suit, having reportedly met just earlier this year.

One major difference: Dan and Deena didn’t do the whole "courting" thing, which means they’ve totally probably kissed before! Scandalous!

Anyway, congrats to the happy couple.

Now, get to making babies, you two!
