Amy Duggar Wiki
Amy Duggar was born September 30, 1986. She is the daughter of Deanna Duggar and Terry Jordan, and is a country singer by profession. Her husband is Dillon King and the two have been married for almost two years now.
The 30-year-old reality star is best known for her appearance on the hit TLC show, 19 Kids and Counting. In 2015, Duggar revealed that she was born out of a wedlock. Though not uncommon, it came as a bit of controversy to the Duggar family, as they have strict rules about not even hugging before getting married.
Amy Duggar is the niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and cousin to their 19 children: Josie, Jordyn, Jennifer, Johannah, Jackson, Justin, James, Jason, Jeremiah, Jedidiah, Joy Anna, Josiah, Joseph, Jinger, Jessa, Jill, John David, Jana, and Josh.
The country singer was also featured on the show’s special, A Duggar Leaves Home, where she moves out to pursue her passion for music. She goes to Tennessee to build her career, and even gave a preview of her singing talent with the hymn “Amazing Grace” in the closing credits of the episode of her grandfather’s funeral.
The 30-year-old married her boyfriend, Dillion King in 2015. Amy Duggar and Dillon King got up close and personal with fans on TLC’s Amy & Dillon: Married One Year on Monday night (June 19). The married couple gave viewers more than just a glimpse of their personal life and how things are going for the two of them.
In an interview with US Weekly, Duggar said, “Our love isn’t perfect, but it’s real! We don’t try to be anything we are not. We hope to make people laugh and get a sense for who we are as a couple.”
The one-hour special showed the “two best friends in love doing life together,” as they celebrated Amy’s 30th birthday. Other segments of the show included renovating their home and taking a trip to Mexico, while celebrating their one-year anniversary.
She explained that they wanted to be adventurous during their trip. “We wanted to really live life to the fullest. So we went zip lining, explored the cenotes, cooked for ourselves, and rented a house in Tulum,” she said.
Duggar and King are quite candid about their married life. “Our first year had its ups and downs,” said Duggar. “There were a lot of changes that took place around us. My parents divorced and that really has been a very hard adjustment. We also were friends for so long we really had to learn how to respect each other as life partners.”
On WE TV’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, the couple shared their marital troubles to the world. Dillon King told Fox News that their time on the show wasn’t a pursuit for fame. However, on one episode, King accused Duggar of being “overdramatic,” to which she replied, “When you treat me like a child, I feel like I’m being raped by an older man!”
Wow! Those choice words do not point to a healthy relationship, right? Nevertheless, the couple are working towards a better-married life, and we hope that they make it.
As revealed by the couple, a major problem in their relationship is communication. As Amy Duggar’s Instagram is filled with lovely pictures of the couple, it looks like the two are working through their personal struggles and trying to make their marriage work.
