We are grieved to announce that the rumors about Amy (Duggar) King's parents are true. The niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar informed Entertainment Tonight that her parents have filed for a divorce.
"It has been quite the year to be a Duggar," Amy told ET. "The family has gone through a lot of heartache this year, but we will get through it. Right now, I just have to take lessons from all I've gone through this year and focus on my marriage."
Deanna Duggar, Amy's mother and Jim Bob's only sister, and Terry Jordan, Amy's father, split on December 20th, after nine years of marriage. Amy says her dad broke the news to her through a text message on Christmas, and while she is "devastated," she says her parents have had an "on/off relationship for a long time."
The newlywed Duggar cousin told ET that she is leaning on her husband, Dillon King, during this difficult time. We know she and her family would appreciate your prayers.
