— -- The ever-growing Duggar family just welcomed a new member.

Joseph Duggar wed Kendra Caldwell Friday, the reality-TV show Duggar family announced on its website.

"Congratulations to the Newlyweds! It’s an amazing and exciting day for our family!" a message read in a post titled, "Joe and Kendra Are Married!!"

"We loved sharing your big day with you and look forward to the amazing days ahead the Lord has in store for you both!" the message concluded.

The couple made it official inside the First Baptist Church in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, according to People magazine. They had been engaged nearly four months.

Joe Duggar, 23, and Caldwell, 19, met at church. People magazine reports the two began courting back in March.

They became engaged at a wedding for Joe Duggar's younger sister, Joy-Anna Duggar, 19, back in May.

The Duggar family was introduced to audiences on TLC's now-defunct reality show, "19 Kids and Counting," which centered on parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.

Fans can watch Joe Duggar's wedding on TLC Go on Sept. 18, or wait for the one-hour TLC special to air sometime next month.
