Duggar cousin Amy King and her husband Dillon currently have one son, Daxton. Daxton recently celebrated his first birthday, as reported by TV Shows Ace. Though Amy tends to disassociate herself from her famous family, fans can’t seem to separate her from them. Amy is Jim Bob Duggar’s niece.
In the past, Amy has been outspoken about how she’s different from her family. But, being a part of the family is what brings her attention. Amy has 400,000 Instagram followers. Now, one of Amy’s social media followers is bringing up the fact that Amy is related to the Duggars. The fan seems to think that Amy should act like her famous family too.
Fan tells Amy King to have more kids
On Sunday, Amy took to Instagram to share a screenshot of a message she received. The sender tells Amy that she’s behind on having kids and points out that there are other “famous people” who are 20 years old and have four children. It’s unclear who exactly the sender is referring to, but they may be thinking about some of the Duggar women who start growing their families in their early twenties.
The sender also tells Amy to “pick up the pace,” claiming that Amy should’ve been pregnant “yesterday.” The user also offers to help Amy lose weight.
Amy reacts to direct message
Naturally, Amy isn’t happy about the message she received. She went so far as to share it on her public Instagram page, and she also shared a long rant about how she feels about the message. She claims that she tried not to post this message but she feels like she needs to share her thoughts on it all. Amy writes, “I think what really got to me was the fact that this total stranger apparently knows my body so well!?🥴 and literally tells me that my body is ok to produce more childen.”
Then, Amy King continues, saying that her body is not designed to have a large family. She explains that her body is still recovering from having Daxton. She talks about being tired, dizzy, and having vertigo.
The Duggar cousin adds that she wants to be a hands-on mom. Not to mention, Amy and her husband Dillon are both business owners. Add the pandemic and a one-year-old to the mix, and anyone can tell that she’s very busy.

Whew! Ok..I'm just going to leave this here… I tried so hard not to post this . But . I literally had to speak my mind! ( when have I not?) This is a message I received yesterday. I think what really got to me was the fact that this total stranger apparently knows my body so well!?🥴 and literally tells me that my body is ok to produce more childen. Ready for my rant!? Of course you are!! ◇ First off I'm flabbergasted that someone would have the audacity to type these words to anyone!! I mean. Who in their right mind says " I think your body is ready to pop out more kids" to a total stranger?!🙄 This is for all the "Karen's out there." ◇My body has been through alot and it gave me the sweetest boy ever. Yes of course it was worth it. But I still need to heal. C- sections are no joke and vertigo is/ was very hard on me. I still get dizzy sometimes but I'm getting stronger everyday. ◇ Also. I AM TIRED. Anyone else!? This pandemic has been so rough on so many people and my business has taken a hit just like so many others. I need to be on my A game. I need to give it my all . I need to stay creative and focus on 3130. Children are such a blessing, but I can't imagine being pregnant again right now. I'd be unmotivated, emotional, stressed out and not in a good head space and that's ok to admit. ◇ I'm a very hands on mom, and I also want to give my son my full attention. This toddler stage is so amazing and I don't want to miss a thing!◇ A women's body is not a factory!! Yes our bodies can do miraculous things! But I hate that phrase" pop out" umm. No. It's WORK. And our bodies go through alot! ◇ I am an only child, and I think I grew up just fine. So cheers to the mama's who decide to have one child! Honestly we are teetering on that idea. ◇ Some women are designed not to have large families. I am one of them. Too much noise, chaos , it's just not for me. But kudos to those mama's who do! God gave you super human strength ◇ Deep down even though in a way it terrifies me I'd love to foster or adopt. ◇ It's exhausting always being compared to other people. I'm in my thirties now, away from that show and I'm so over it. It just has to stop.
