Amy and Dillon met in July 2014, and then started dating shortly after that. By July 2015, the couple was already engaged and they tied the knot just two months later in a gorgeous country-chic wedding ceremony at Horton Farms near Bentonville, Arkansas. Of course, the former 19 Kids and Counting star (where she was referred to lovingly as “Cousin Amy”) was surrounded by her famous Duggar family members on her special day including Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, Jessa Duggar, Jill Duggar and Josh Duggar‘s wife, Anna Duggar.
Even though Amy seemed to follow in the Duggar’s family tradition of a fast engagement to wedding timeline, she rebelled against the family’s other tradition of having honeymoon babies. Most Duggars welcome their first child within their first year of marriage, but Amy and Dillon waited four years to make an addition to their little family.
And it seems like it was worth the wait! The couple revealed that they’re both excited, but Dillon admitted that he’s also feeling nervous about fatherhood. “The learning curve of being a new father is kind of terrifying, but at the same time equally astonishing,” he told People.
Meanwhile, Amy is already learning that motherhood comes with sacrifices. She told People that she misses Chik-fil-a, explaining that she had to give up her favorite fast food joint because “Baby King isn’t a fan of chicken.”
But she’s still very excited about becoming a new mom and welcoming Baby King later this fall. “I’m over the moon about becoming a momma! I just can’t hardly wait!” she gushed.
