Lily and Ellie, I follow Amy on twitter and she landed about 6:43 this morning and tweeted to watch her on the Today show tomorrow morning.

Lily and Ellie, do you know why Amy uses the Duggar last name when it isn't her legal last name? Her mother's maiden name was Duggar. Does she not use her own last name because of how recognizable the Duggar last name is? I am a bit perplexed as to why she gets the coverage she does, as she isn't a member of their immediate family (one of the 19, I mean) and doesn't seem to subscribe to their same beliefs, etc. She doesn't seem like a bad kid, I don't mean it that way, but I was just a bit perplexed about it all. :-)

Hi Anonymous,

NBC will most likely post a video clip of the interview, and we will post it to our blog.

@Lisa,
Amy's mom mentioned on one of the 19 Kids and Counting episodes that she and Amy's dad were not married until just a few years ago, well after Amy was born. So, I believe, in that case, Amy would have her mothers last name which at the time was Duggar.

Totally agree with Lisa!!!!!

Agree with Lisa...Amy comes across as trying to get "famous" off of The Duggars. She also seems to play off of her differences from The Duggars as an opportunity to be in the show. Quite frankly, this Today Show appearance seems rather ridiculous (the extortion attempt has been explained multiple times by Jim Bob and Michelle in several media outlets, including on Today!) And as for her music career, I think I speak for many when I say the photos on her website promote herself in a rather seductive way for a country singer who is Christian. I guess it's all my opinion, but I'm just calling it as I see it...yes, she seems to have a sweet, fun-loving personality, but...by their fruits you shall know them.

@Lisa As someone else stated, I'll just affirm it - Amy's mom was not married when she had Amy, so it makes sense that Amy has her mom's maiden name.

WendyNBox said...

Even though her parents weren't married when they had her, doesn't mean that she didn't get her father's last name...YCFAN you said it right on!!

Amy does try to get famous off the Duggars. But, Amy is different, and like Michelle says "spunky" She has her own since of style, I like Amy but, there are things I don't like about her, if you know what I mean?

Nicole said...

Amy isn't trying to get famous off the Duggars at all. She lives in the same area and is Jim Bob's niece, so it only makes sense that she spends time with them, on-camera and off-camera. She is driven and comes across as a lovely young woman. I wish her nothing but the best.

A few years ago Amy was on the show with a child that was introduced as hers. Was that true? This child was only on for a few episodes then there has been no talk about him at all.

Amy is as much a Duggar as Michelle and Jim Bob's children.

@ycfan

It is the heart that God is looking at. Speculation on her 'seductive' photos can turn very quickly to passing judgement on who she is as a Christian. By doing that, it reduces how you see her physically to who she is at the heart.She is a young girl who comes from a different part of the Duggar family, just because she has a larger than life personality and is not shy or overly conservative it does not mean God doesn't bear fruit in her life. I'm sure a lot of girls can relate to Amy. Maybe it's girls who don't feel like they fit the 'cookie-cutter, wholesome, proverbs 31 wife in training' bill, can look at Amy and see how she might contrast to what we see as the 'perfect' Christian girls and still belong to the family of God. We should be looking to encourage one another, not look to tear down people's character. We are called to prefer one another in faith and unity and offer the gift of belonging. I believe that if Amy is connected to the living Vine then she will produce much fruit.
