Amy Duggar posed for an engagement shoot that resulted in some dirty photos — but not that kind of dirty. Amy enjoyed playing the mud at her fiancé’s farm, and the result was a Duggar engagement shoot that, while somewhat more suggestive than a typical member of the 19 Kids & Counting clan would countenance, was tame compared to most young women’s pre-marriage pics, reported People.
Because Amy is Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s niece, she was less affected by the scandal that hit the family when reports emerged that their son Josh had molested several underage girls, some of whom were his sisters.
However, Amy has no plans to reflect on the past. Instead, she and her fiancé, Dillon King, are ecstatic about getting married in early September. And that led to Duggar’s engagement shoot, which she shared on Instagram, shown below.
“One of our three engagement photo looks was a mud fight,” revealed Amy. “It was kind of, not scandalous, but a little less what you’d expect from a Duggar.”
As a result of that upbeat attitude, Amy admits she’s become known as the rebel of the Duggar family. But when it comes to marriage advice, she’s going back to home base.
“I’ve got an upcoming double date with my uncle Jim Bob and Michelle,” revealed Amy. “They’ve been married for 31 years, so we want a little bit of their advice.”
But at this point in the 19 Kids and Counting family history, not everyone feel that the Duggars parents give the best advice. Michelle and Jim Bob found themselves under fire after Josh’s history came to light, and it hasn’t been easy for the rest of the family to regroup. What are they doing now?
Amy noted that although her cousin Jill moved with new baby Israel and husband Derick on a mission to Central America, Jill might be present at her Labor Day weekend wedding.
As for Jessa Duggar Seewald, she’s thrilled about becoming a mom herself, reported Ecumenical News.
The 22-year-old is turning to social media to show her pregnancy progress, with a recent post at 27 weeks. Jess and Ben, 20, are increasingly close as they look forward to parenthood.
But her brother, Josh Duggar, is less visible on social media since the public became aware of the police reports about the molestation that occurred when he was a teenager.
Josh, his wife (Anna), and her newborn daughter, Meredith, have finally re-appeared in public, reported Fashion & Style.
Josh and Anna, 27, have four children. The others are Mackynzie, Michael, and Marcus.
Since the news of the scandal and the cancellation of the 19 Kids and Counting show, Josh and Anna left Washington, D.C. Josh had resigned from his job, and the couple now are back in their home base of Arkansas.
“I can imagine the shock many of you are going through reading this. I remember feeling that same shock. When my family and I first visited the Duggar home, Josh shared his past teenage mistakes,” said Anna of her husband’s revelations.
As the Inquisitr reported, even before police reports circulated that Duggar molested five underage girls when he was a teenager, Anna shared a quote on forgiveness.
“The three most beautiful and liberating words in the English language are these: ‘I forgive you.’ – Lon Solomon.”
And Anna wasn’t alone in sharing meaningful quotes on that day.
“Do right and risk the consequences,” posted Josh, reflecting the statement of soldier and Texas governor Sam Houston.
But what did Anna know even before she married into the famous Duggar family? It now turns out that she was aware of exactly what had happened two years prior to Josh’s marriage proposal.
“I was surprised at his openness and humility and at the same time didn’t know why he was sharing it. For Josh, he wanted not just me but my parents to know who he really was – even very difficult past mistakes.”
