Although he wasn’t necessarily looking for love, Justin revealed he is thankful for his relationship with Claire. “God brought Claire in my life, and I wasn’t really expecting it, but he brought her along right when I needed her. Ever since then, I just knew that she was the one,” he explained.
So, just who is Claire Spivey? Like Justin, Claire comes from a large family. Claire is the oldest of six children while Justin is No. 14 in his family of 19. The two enjoy similar hobbies, including spending time outdoors, praying, reading the Bible, and snowboarding. Justin and Claire are expected to share their courtship announcement on Tuesday’s episode of “Counting On.” The installment will air at 9 p.m. EDT on TLC.
The pair “got connected” in the spring of 2019 when they joined a group of friends on a fast-food outing, a TLC press release revealed. Justin Duggar began spending more time with Spivey and her family, and the rest is history. In the couple’s cute video, Spivey said that she liked how Justin is “able to see the bright side of things no matter what. He always looks for the best in people and I want to be more like him every day.”
“I’m really looking forward to the memories to come spent with him. I’m excited to see what the Lord holds for us in the near future,” she shared.
