Duggar family wild child Amy King (neé Duggar) revealed that despite growing up very close to her famous cousins and often appearing on their hit TLC shows, she didn't live nearly the same lifestyle as they did.

Amy — who is the daughter of Jim Bob's sister, Deanna Jordan — shared she "didn't grow up in a strict house" and had more control over things such as her appearance and the type of music she listened to when she was a teen.

"Mine was more like, I had rock music, I wore swimsuits, kissed boys, and kind of lived life," she explained. "But it had to be taken back whenever I went to my cousins' house."

"I did try to respect it to a point," she continued. "I wasn't going to be like, 'this is me and I'm wearing all black...grrr!' I wasn't going to show them my kind of style and all that, so it was a really weird balance."

"It's so ingrained in their minds from when they're very young that they follow the rules, that they follow them and will respect them," she noted of her cousins. "[They're told] 'you will love your father and mother and you will respect them and don't ask questions. That's your authority' — and that's just how it is."

"Even for me, I didn't ask any questions for the longest time. I didn't understand it, but I didn't want to ruffle those feathers," the mother-of-one, who shares 3-year-old son Daxton with her husband, Dillon, said of her relationship with her aunt and uncle. "But it is what it is at this point. I'm in my 30's now and I just don't care anymore."
