Duggar cousin Amy King is pregnant with her first child and she's been happily posing for photos, showing off her baby bump with the other Duggar ladies who are also currently expecting (there's a lot of them). So when Amy posted pictures from her lemon-themed baby shower and not one of her famous cousins was pictured, fans were a bit alarmed.
Amy recently shared a picture of the cake from her baby shower explaining that she and her grandmother, who died tragically in a drowning accident just a few months ago, had been planning her shower together. "Before Gma went to be with Jesus we were planning a huge lemon themed Baby shower pool party at her house," she wrote. "We were going to rent big white tents, and have huge white balloons in the pool and have it all decked out! But after her passing I could barely keep it together, I told myself I couldn't even think about having a shower without her and I just felt lost. To be honest I've felt " lost" for months." She went on to explain that her friends decided to throw her the "sweetest lemon themed brunch celebration"

Before Gma went to be with Jesus we were planning a huge lemon themed Baby shower pool party at her house. We were going to rent big white tents, and have huge white balloons in the pool and have it all decked out! But after her passing I could barely keep it together, I told myself I couldn't even think about having a shower without her and I just felt lost. To be honest I've felt " lost" for months... But y'all God is good, and everyday I'm just reminded of His faithfulness. I had the sweetest lemon themed brunch celebration today to honor her with my sweetest friends who loved on baby Dax and I! It was low key, fun, relaxing and exactly what my heart needed.💛🍋 I loved all the laughs, the hugs and the encouragement! Quality over quantity!
Amy's fans couldn't help but notice that none of her famous Duggar family was present at her shower, and they weren't too happy about it. Although it's true that her famous cousins weren't at her shower brunch, there's a perfectly good reason. When asked "Your cousins didn’t go to your baby shower?" by one commenter, Amy set the record straight. "We had a baby shower with just family too!! I've been blessed twice!!"
In fact, just a few days before her friends showered her, her famous family threw the expectant momma her own celebration, that she documented on social media.

From sweet Ivy Jane to positive Aunt Michelle and my momma dearest thank you all for your love, support , jokes , hugs, and quality time together! I love each and everyone of you! - Joy had to leave early ... but I loved seeing her as well and I gave her a few extra hugs the other day..and Jinger, we facetimed her! So everyone was included! I love how even though we are all walking through different phases in our lives, we encourage one another, we build each other up, we pray for each other and we stand together. 💕 #family
It was back in June that Amy announced that she and husband Dillon King would be expecting a baby boy!
While Amy has always been the "wild child" of the Duggar family because she didn't follow the uber-strict Christian rules her more religious cousins do, they are still a close family. It's nice to see that they all gathered together to celebrate her pregnancy and throw her a shower, and with having such a large family it's no surprise that her friends also wanted to throw her something a little different. It certainly looks as if she had a wonderful time at both!
