The two cousins will have had a lot to talk about following the shock arrest of Josh Duggar, 33, for possessing child pornography.
Amy, known as the rebel of the Duggar family, has revealed she was “completely blindsided” by the skeletons in troubled cousin Josh’s closet.
The star also says that had she known she would probably have never joined 19 Kids and Counting.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun after oldest Duggar son Josh was hit with child porn charges last week, Amy said she has been left “heartbroken” by the latest scandal to hit her estranged ultraconservative family.
Television channel TLC cancelled the show in 2015 after it emerged that Josh had sexually abused four of his sisters and a family friend while he was a teen.
Now Josh, 33, stands accused of receiving and possessing child pornography depicting sexual abuse of children under the age of 12, Amy said: “I wish I had known some more information before getting on the show.
“I was blindsided about Josh’s past, completely blindsided. I wish I had known that backstory beforehand, that way I probably would never have been on the show.

“But it is what it is. I had a great time with the kids, I love my cousins.”
Jos was released from jail earlier this week after he was accused of possessing 65 child porn images and one video of minors, including a toddler, at his detention court hearing.
Josh, 33, appeared via zoom from Washington County Jail in Arkansas for the detention court hearing on Wednesday, as he appeared to be in good spirits.
Josh will have “unlimited access” to his six children with wife Anna present, though he is not allowed to be around minor children, including his siblings, nieces and nephews.

The judge said of her decision: “The court views these charges as very serious. It is a concern to have an agent testify that the file download found on a computer is some of the worst child abuse pornography in 1,000 cases, that concerns the court.
“The victims of your crime, if you committed it, concern the court. Children are involuntary victims of pornography. They’re subject to human trafficking. This weights against your release into the community.
She said the molestation scandal that was made public “concerns her,” because of the age of the victims and the children in the porn.
The judge added: “I am concerned images and ages are very close to the ages of your children and nephews and nieces and siblings children. I don’t know if you’re a danger.”
