The couple revealed despite the Counting On star’s 19 cousins, they don’t plan to quickly expand their family. “I think it's a beautiful new chapter and people do it and they have more than one! So I have a great respect for anyone who's had 19 or one,” she told OKMagazine.com in August.

Amy continued, “We’re gonna see how one goes and then we just might adopt a jungle cat.” Dillon added, “We're aiming for one and done. Two is max! One may be it but we will see.”
