We called it here at OKMagazine.com that another member of the 19 Kids And Counting family would walk down the aisle soon and we were right! Amy Duggar is engaged to her boyfriend, Dillon King, and celebrated it with her extended family. Well, all but one.
Amy, Jim Bob’s niece and aspiring country singer based in Nashville, Tenn., announced her engagement on July 13 to her boyfriend of 9 months.
"I'm so happy to announce ... WE ARE ENGAGED!!!!" she wrote on Instagram. "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."
Of course, Amy and her fiance joined the Duggars in Arkansas to share in the celebration, but one person in the family was notably absent...
Josh Duggar! The 27-year-old, who admitted to molesting five young women in 2002 and 2003, was not part of the family gathering, even though his children and pregnant wife, Anna Duggar, posed for the photo. Also missing was Jill Duggar, Derick Dillard and their child, who jetted off for mission work last week.
Almost two months after the scandal came to light, Amy's now-fiance proposed by leaving a trail of candles in the woods where he was waiting on one knee with a big sparkling diamond.
