When Counting On fans heard the news that Amy Duggar is pregnant with her first child, many breathed a sigh of relief.
After all, Amy represents the more balanced, level-headed branch of the Duggar family tree.
And with her famous cousins breeding liken rabbits, it was widely feared that that branch would get overshadowed in the next generation.
Fortunately, those people can now breathe a sigh of relief.
Amy Duggar and husband Dillon King will soon be parents.
And in her usual, outspoken fashion, Amy has a lot to say about the experience of first-time pregnancy.
I’m scared as ever [to give birth],” Amy told OK magazine while attending a premiere event for WEtv’s Love After Lockup.
“Give me all the good meds! I’m like, for real.”
Yes, folks, it’s a Duggar with a sense of humor.
Apparently, such a thing exists.
Anyway, Amy fieled the inevitable question about whether or not she’s planning to have more thsan one kid.
And we’re afraid folks who were hoping that she’d give Jessa a run for her money may be sorely disappointed.
“We’re gonna see how one goes and then we just might adopt a jungle cat,” Amy quipped.
“We’re aiming for one and done,” Dillon chimed in. “Two is max! One may be it but we will see.”
Asked how her famous cousins feel about her famous cousins might feel about her small (by Duggar standards) family, Amy replied:
“I don’t think they know!”
Obviously, that has the potential to be a scandalous bombshell, as Duggar woman are taught from a young age that procreation is their primary reason for being.
Asked about her birth plan, Amy played it coy, remarking:
“I think it’s a beautiful new chapter and people do it and they have more than one! So I have a great respect for anyone who’s had 19 or one,”
In the clip, we also learn the name behind Amy’s baby’s name — Daxton Ryan King.
That’s one of those handles that sounds unusual now, but you know there will be 15 Daxton’s in the kid’s kindergarten class.
We’re living in weird times with weird kid names, folks.
