Joseph Duggar and Kendra Caldwell are currently on their honeymoon, so they've put their side-hugging days behind them for good. However, the couple's courtship was just beginning on the season premiere of Counting On.
During the episode, Joseph revealed the sneaky plan he had devised to surprise Kendra with a courtship proposal. He needed plenty of help to pull it off without a hitch, which meant that he had to let some of his siblings in on it. The 22-year-old Duggar son set the plan into motion by inviting 19-year-old Kendra to accompany him to a car auction with a group that included his older sister, Jana, and younger brother, James. Kendra's father and her younger sister also tagged along. After leaving the auction, Joseph would stop at a special spot and ask Kendra to make their relationship official.
Joseph Duggar works at his family's used car lot, so he spends a lot of time looking for good deals at the car auction. He told Kendra that they were going there to look for two cars, and he hoped that the seemingly ordinary outing wouldn't raise any suspicions about what he had planned.
On the way home, Joseph Duggar took Kendra Caldwell to the place he was born to pop the courtship question. Longtime Duggar fans might remember the property from the family's early Discovery Channel specials when the Duggars' old home was shown being torn down after they sold their land to the church next door. All that's left of the house Joseph was born in is a slab of concrete, but this is where Joseph decided to officially begin his courtship with Kendra. His older brother, John David, wasn't very impressed with his plan.
