It turns out the Duggar family of 19 Kids And Counting are full of secrets. After Josh Duggar’s sex abuse to his sisters and another victim came out more than 10 years later, an even deeper secret involved the extended family has been revealed.
According to RadarOnline, Jim Bob’s sister Deanna, the mother of Amy Duggar, once filed a restraining order against her husband Terry Jordan when he threatened her and her newborn.
“He said he was going to kick my a** if I don’t allow him to see redacted,” the court papers said. “I had just delivered redacted, Terry came into my hospital room and said I should kill you and the baby.”
The documents were filed in 1992, though the incidents were in 1986, meaning Deanna waited six years to file the complaint. The restraining order was approved but Deanna filed an order of dismissal three days later.
Amy Duggar and her family have acknowledged that she was born out of wedlock, which is very much against the 19 Kids And Counting family’s conservative beliefs. However, they did get married in 2006, when Amy was 20 years old.
The 28-year-old lives in Nashville with her boyfriend and is an aspiring country singer who frequently appeared on the reality show, which still has not been confirmed for another season in wake of the Josh Duggar scandal.
