Amy Duggar King shares a last name with some pretty popular people, and some of her 19 cousins happen to star on the TLC reality show, Counting On. So some people might have wondered at some point whether Amy Duggar is close with the rest of the family. Although she has shown support for her famous family members throughout the years, her relationship with the Counting On crew has had its ups and downs.
Amy Duggar King is the niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, according to Us Weekly, and she's the oldest of the Duggar cousins. Her mom, Deanna Duggar, is Jim Bob's sister. And family is something that is very important to her — Amy was super close to her late grandmother, Mary Duggar, who died earlier this summer, according to In Touch Weekly. So, it makes a lot of sense that Amy is pretty close to her cousins, too. Although family members can have their differences, Amy told In Touch Weekly on Aug. 16 that her and her cousins are in a very good place.
"You know, we support each other," she said. "We love each other. They still, they come in and shop at my store and they just pop in! So family, there is a lot of love in our family."
There you have it, folks. Amy and her cousins support one another and they love each other just like any other family members do. Although they might not hang out all of the time, they still appreciate the time they spend together when they do. And that's the best kind of relationship you can have with your family members.
Amy and her the majority of her cousins live in the same state, Arkansas, so it isn't hard for them to see each other. This came in handy when Amy opened up her boutique, 3130 Clothing, in December 2018, according to In Touch Weekly, and her cousins came to pay her a visit, showing their support on Instagram. "It's been a long time coming, but they did it," Jessa Duggar wrote in an Instagram post at the time. "A Duggar girl and their husband just launched their very own clothing store in our childhood hometown! The whole shop is darling!"
Amy is currently expanding the boutique due to its popularity, and told People earlier this week that having the support of her cousins has been "really cool." "We love each other, we support each other, and that's family," she said. So sweet!
Like all families, Amy's relationship with her cousins is pretty unique. In an Instagram post in 2016, Amy told one follower that she and her cousins don't always see eye to eye on everything, according to People. "We've had a girls night before and have gone out to eat. It's a rule that if I want to spend quality time with them, I have to come see them," she wrote in an Instagram comment.
"I can only be myself and even though we don't see eye to eye on every little thing, we are still family and I do still love them :)," she added.
Amy has also addressed the Duggar ladies' soft-spoken voices before, joking, "I don’t really know why they all talk like that, I just know that they’re very soft-spoken," she said, according to In Touch Weekly. "Sometimes when I go over there, I’m like, ‘Hey!’ and I’m like, do I sound like a man?"
Since the Duggar siblings are so close, it makes perfect sense that they're pretty close with their cousin, too. But like all close relationships, not everything is perfect.
