Another Duggar is getting married.

Jinger Duggar announced her engagement to former professional soccer player Jeremy Vuolo in a video posted Tuesday promoting her new TLC reality show, "Counting On."

The 22-year-old former "19 Kids and Counting" star calls Vuolo "the man of my dreams." She said in a video posted last month that the two met in May 2015 and have been on a mission trip together.

Vuolo was a goalie at Hardwick College and Syracuse University before going on to play with the New York Red Bulls and the San Antonio Scorpions in the U.S. and overseas in Finland.

Jinger is the sixth-born of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's 19 kids.

"19 Kids and Counting" ended its 10-season run last year. "Counting On" premieres next month.
