Though the Duggar cousin does not abide by the strict dating rules Jim Bob and Michelle have for their children, the aunt and uncle shared their congratulations for the couple on Facebook.

“We are so excited for our niece Amy Duggar and Dillion King on getting engaged,” the statement read. “We tell every couple that as a husband and wife individually draw close to God, they will draw close to each other. We love you Amy & Dillion and pray that God will continue to bless your relationship as you put Him first in your lives!”

In January, rumors spread about Amy Duggar and the circumstances surrounding her birth, and she later confirmed the gossip with a post of her and her parents on Instagram, "Entertainment Tonight" reported.

“The tabloids are telling the truth, my mom and dad did have me out of wedlock,” Duggar wrote. “Just because we are Christians doesn't make us perfect, it just makes us forgiven.”

Duggar used the opportunity to share a pro-life message with her audience as well.

“I'm extremely grateful to my mom for choosing to give me life,” she said. “I'm sure she was scared, young, ridiculed, and felt ashamed. God's grace covered it though!”
