Jedidiah Duggar is rumored to be engaged to Katey Nakatsu. There have been several signs that the couple is planning to get married on April 3 via live stream. Their engagement photos and proposal video have even be released.
At this point, the Duggar family hasn’t confirmed nor denied the rumors. They may be keeping it a secret due to an NDA with TLC, which would also explain the wedding being live-streamed. TLC may not be willing to film a wedding amid the pandemic. By limiting in-person attendance, there may be more room for TLC’s production crew, and the network will be able to comply with Covid-19 guidelines. This would then allow the wedding to be featured on the show.
Now that fans know a little bit about the engagement and the wedding, they are eager to learn more about Katey.
Who is Katey Nakatsu?
Katey is 22 years old and turns 23 in July 2021. Jedidiah is 22 years old.
According to Fandom, Katey has one sister, Lauren, who’s 18 years old. Their biological mother, Kim, and their father, Kory, split in 2004 or 2005. Since then, Kory has remarried a woman named Kerry. Kerry and Kory tied the knot in 2009.
The Nakatsu family maintains a blog where they share updates about their lives. It appears to be run by Kory as he raises his two daughters.
Katey graduated from high school in 2016. It looks like she may have been homeschooled, as Arizona Families for Home Education sponsored the graduation. Several of the blogs feature glimpses into the homeschooling journey.
At the time, Kory wrote, “Now begins a new path in her life as she seeks opportunities to minister to and serve others during her single years.” It’s unclear what she’s doing now.
The Nakatsu family lives in Arizona, so it will be interesting to see whether Jedidiah and Katey decide to live in Arizona or Arkansas. Of course, they could live somewhere totally different.
As far as we can tell, Katey doesn’t use social media, or she’s locked down her social media accounts. She may be trying to live a more private life before she joins the Counting On family.
