Newly engaged couple Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard met for the first time in Nepal, when she traveled there with her father, Jim Bob Duggar, so the two could get to know each other. But as their trip wound down, both Jill and Derick were unsure about how the other person felt.

In an exclusive clip of a new episode of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting, airing Tuesday (9 p.m. ET), we get to see the moment when Derick asks Jill to start a courtship – and their first side hug.
