Amy Duggar is engaged!
According to Mail Online, the cousin of the 19 kids on 19 Kids And Counting announced that she is engaged to beau Dillon King. Duggar shared the exciting news on Instagram, and showed off her gorgeous engagement ring, too. Although she is a Duggar, Amy does not abide by the strict rules of courting like her first cousins, so she hasn’t had supervised dates, for example.
The aspiring country singer is still a Christian, however, and is thrilled to have found someone that has the same religious beliefs as her.
“I’m so happy to announce…WE ARE ENGAGED!!!! He loves the Lord, he makes me laugh uncontrollably, he’s loyal, he’s patient, he’s my best friend! Of course I said yes!! l love you so much! @kingdillpickle #DillandDuggsforever.”
Earlier this year, rumors that Amy Duggar was engaged, or that she soon would be engaged, circulated on the web. She and Dillon King made their intentions to marry no secret, and were ring shopping in February.
According to People Magazine, Dillon King posted a photo collage on Instagram, also announcing that he’s engaged to Duggar. The two seem thrilled to be taking the next step in their relationship.
“@amyduggar I asked you to be my fiancee not just because I love you right now. I got down on one knee because you are the only woman I have and will truly love forever.!!!”
Amy Duggar announced she was engaged on Monday. This is not the first time she has made headlines this year, either. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, there were reports that Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s niece was born out of wedlock. The report surfaced in January, and Jim Bob’s sister, Deanna, and her daughter decided to take on the rumors, confirming that they were indeed true.
“The tabloids are telling the truth, my mom and dad did have me out of wedlock. Just because we are Christians doesn’t make us perfect, it just makes us forgiven. Just because I share the Duggar name doesn’t mean my life is perfect,” Amy Duggar said.
The Duggar cousin was also in the news for her comments about Josh Duggar’s molestation scandal, cracking an incest joke at just the wrong (right?) time. Known as the “rebel” of the family, the soon-to-be Mrs. King tends to be very outspoken, and is often in the news despite not being a part of the 19 Kids And Counting television circus.
Now that Ms. Duggar is engaged, she has a lot of wedding planning to do. Of course, she could get some help from her cousins, Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald, who both recently married. It’s unknown which (if any) Duggars will be in the Duggar-King wedding party, or when the wedding will take place.
