Another Duggar is ready to tie the knot!

Amy Duggar, the niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and first cousin to Jill, Jessa, Josh and the rest of the 19 Kids and Counting brood, announced her engagement Monday to boyfriend Dillon King.

And the 28-year-old showed off quite the sparkling engagement ring.

“I’m so happy to announce … WE ARE ENGAGED!!!!” she wrote on Instagram. “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!! l love you so much! @kingdillpickle #DillandDuggsforever.”

King also posted photos online. One of them showed a trail of candles leading to a clearing in the woods, where he got down on one knee and proposed.

King wrote on Instagram: “@amyduggar I asked you to be my fiancee not just because I love you right now. I got down on one knee because you are the only woman I have and will truly love forever.!!!”

Duggar, an aspiring country singer, was the subject of the TLC special A Duggar Leaves Home. TLC described her as the “the fun-loving cousin” who’s “a little louder, a little wilder” than Jim Bob and Michelle’s kids.
