Josh Duggar Noticeably Missing in New Family Photo Celebrating Amy's Engagement
By Alex Ungerman
The Duggar family celebrated the engagement of Amy Duggar to Dillon King with a family photo, but 27-year-old Josh, amid his child molestation scandal that resulted in TLC pulling the family's TV show 19 Kids and Counting off the air, was nowhere to be found.
Of course, it's entirely possible he was simply taking the family pic, but his pregnant wife (in the blue shirt, holding their son Marcus in the pink shirt) is present, which makes his absence that more noticeable.
And while Josh wasn't in the photo, he did wish Amy and Dillon a happy engagement, posting a picture of the couple to Instagram, writing, "Congrats to Dillon & Amy on your engagement...welcome to the family @kingdillpickle! @amyduggar #engaged."
"We are so excited for our niece Amy Duggar and Dillon King on getting engaged," wrote Jim Bob and Michelle on Facebook. "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!"
Meanwhile, a post on Monday from the Duggar family's Facebook revealed that Josh's wife, Anna Duggar, is overdue for the birth of her fourth child with Josh.
"Well, sweet Anna is now past her due date! First time she has ever gone "late" instead of early," the family captioned a picture of Anna with her also-pregnant sister Anna Seewald. "Here she is with our Jessa. Be praying for these girls. Pretty soon we will get to kiss the sweet face of another Duggar grandbaby!!!"
On Monday, Amy announced her engagement to Dillon on Instagram, writing, "I'm so happy to announce … WE ARE ENGAGED!!!! He loves the Lord, he makes me laugh uncontrollably, he’s loyal, he’s patient, he's my best friend! Of course I said yes!!"
