Fans may have suspected that Amy Duggar had a falling out with some of her family members after the tragic death of Grandma Mary Duggar, but it seems like she’s got just as much love for her family as ever. After her cousin-in-law Anna Duggar took to Instagram to share a gushing, glowing post about 11 years of marriage with husband Josh Duggar, the former Marriage Boot Camp star had some praise of her own to share. Calling the mother of five a “brave” and “forgiving” woman, Amy showered her cousin in compliments.

“Turned 31 years old today and I have so much to be thankful for!” Anna posted on Instagram on Sunday, June 23. “11 years ago today, I said, ‘Yes!’ to the man of my dreams! So grateful for God’s grace and redemption over our family! 5 beautiful, healthy and energetic growing kiddos and one more on the way!” In the comments, Amy, 32, responded, “Love you, sweet girl. You’re brave, you are forgiving, a great momma and stronger than I could ever be. 💕”

“Thank you! Love you so much! 💞” Anna wrote back. But the Duggar cousin wasn’t the only one to share some love with the occasional Counting On star. Her sister-in-law Jill Duggar also sent along some birthday wishes, as did Joseph DuggarKendra Caldwell and Lauren Swanson. It wasn’t just relatives, either. Duggar family friends like Carlin BatesJennifer Hartono, Laura DeMasie and Sierra Jo Dominguez all chimed in with heart emojis and requests that the 31-year-old “save them some cheesecake.”

Anna and Amy have plenty to bring them closer these days. In addition to the family bonded over the “very hard” day that was Grandma Mary’s funeral, both women are currently expecting. On June 20, the mother of five revealed that baby No. 6 will be a girl, while Amy revealed she’s having a boy on May 31. As a first-time mom, we’re sure she’ll be more than happy to get some advice from her cousins as they keep growing the Duggar family tree.
