‘Counting On’: Amy Duggar is More Modest Than Her Cousins In This One Way

Amy Duggar is the rebel of the Duggar family. She’s always worn pants, had plenty of dates, and has been outspoken about her desire to not have roughly a million kids. Now married and pregnant, the famed Duggar cousin is settling into domestic life. The business owner has been updating followers about her pregnancy for months, but there is one thing that she won’t be sharing with her throngs of fans – the birth of her child.

Amy confirms that her son’s birth won’t be filmed for Counting On

If you were hoping to see Amy welcome her new son into the world on Counting On you’ll likely be disappointed. The soon-to-be mother has informed her fans that the birth of her child will absolutely be a closed set.

Amy has never shied away from the camera. In fact, she and her husband have appeared on Marriage Bootcamp, and she’s happy to keep up with her fans on Instagram. Amy, however, has a line she refuses to cross. The line for Amy seems to be inviting the television audience into the delivery room, unlike several of her famous cousins.

Why is Amy Duggar against having the birth of her son filmed?

Amy, never one to mince words, told her Instagram followers that while she is happy to share her pregnancy journey with her fans, she honestly doesn’t believe anyone needs to see “all that.” The “all that” she is referring to is the process of birthing her first child.

Amy and her husband, Dillon King, are eagerly awaiting the birth of their first child together. Amy is due in the coming weeks, and it seems like the couple is more than ready to meet their new addition.

While they await their new arrival, Amy has been active on Instagram. Several weeks back, the couple announced that they would be naming their son Daxton Ryan. While they await their new arrival, Amy has been active on Instagram. More recently, Amy has shared pictures from her maternity photo shoot.

Which Duggars have had their birth experiences filmed?

Amy might not be into the idea of letting a film crew watch her labor and delivery, but several of her family members have been perfectly okay with it. Michelle Duggar, the family matriarch, was, obviously, the first Duggar who allowed film crews to watch her labor. Fans were invited in to see the birth of Jackson, Johanna, Jennifer, Jordyn, and Josie Duggar. In fact, fans were along for the ride as the Duggar’s youngest daughter, Josie, struggled as a micro-premie.

Anna Duggar, who married Joshua Duggar way back in 2008, was the first of the next generation to allow her labors to be filmed. Fans may remember Anna delivering one of her children in the family’s bathroom.  Jill and Jessa Duggar were also more than happy to have the camera crew in their homes as they labored with their children. Jill is the mother of two boys, while Jessa is now a mother of three.

Kendra Caldwell, who gave birth to her first son with Joseph Duggar precisely 9 months after their wedding, also allowed a camera crew to film her experience. Kendra, unlike Jill and Jessa, opted for a hospital birth, according to Romper. Jinger Duggar did the same, although the majority of her daughter’s birth remained private. Film crews, however, were allowed into Jinger’s hospital room while she labored.
