19 Kids and Counting family members Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, as well as their son Josh Duggar, have all taken to social media to congratulate cousin Amy Duggar on her engagement to Dillon King.

Amy Duggar announced her engagement to King earlier this week. Amy is the daughter of Jim Bob Duggar's sister. Her dad has recently made news for causing yet another scandal for the 19 Kids and Counting family. He was sued many years ago for transmitting genital herpes to a woman with whom he had unprotected sex.

While Amy Duggar shares the same strong Christian faith as the 19 Kids and Counting family, she isn't as conservative as Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 offspring.

"I'm so happy to announce ... WE ARE ENGAGED!!!! 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," Amy wrote on an Instagram post, sharing her good news.

Josh and Anna Duggar are expecting their fourth baby any time now. As of this weekend, Anna was considered overdue.

Another wedding is now in the works for the 19 Kids and Counting family. Do you expect Josh and Anna Duggar will attend Amy Duggar's wedding? He hasn't appeared in any photos alongside his family members since his sexual molestation scandal made news.
