Most Counting On fans fondly remember cousin Amy Duggar from her multiple appearances on 19 Kids & Counting. But, she hasn’t shown up much in the family’s spinoff over the past few years and has slowly faded off the radar. But this week, cousin Amy made headlines by slamming her famous cousins for “rushing babies.”
Amy made it clear during a recent interview that she has no interest in following in Jim Bob and Michelle’s footsteps, and she and her husband, Dillon King, have put off having children.
“I didn’t want to limit myself by just getting pregnant right off the bat and not exploring the rest of what my life could be,” Amy explained.
This is quite the contrast to her cousins’ beliefs. Not only did Jim Bob and Michelle have 19 kids, but their married adult children have all gotten pregnant during their first year of marriage (with the exception of Jinger, who announced her pregnancy fourteen months after tying the knot).
According to Radar Online, Amy and her husband just celebrated their third wedding anniversary last month, and they are the co-owners of a new clothing boutique. But, they have not yet gotten pregnant. However, they still have plans to be parents one day.
Amy says that they definitely have babies on the brain, but she wants to wait until other areas of her life are stable. She says that she wants to be settled, so it’s boutique and then baby. The former reality star also said that her marriage is a top priority, and she wants a great foundation with her husband. She explained that she doesn’t want to be learning how to love her husband all over again when the kids turn 18.

As for her relationship with her famous cousins, rumors flew earlier this year that the Counting On stars had silenced cousin Amy and wouldn’t allow her to post things about them on social media. But, last week the family posted a birthday tribute to Amy, and she did make a rare appearance on Counting On this season when the little Duggar girls were recording their Happy Heart album. So now, fans are wondering if there was ever feud in the first place.
It’s not clear what is going on with Amy Duggar and the rest of the Duggar clan. She went private on Instagram, and we don’t get a lot of updates about her life with King. But, hopefully, we will hear more from her in the future. And, if the boutique is successful, maybe we will get some baby news soon.
New episodes of Counting On will return to TLC in 2019.
