Amy Duggar shaded her famous family by saying “my body is NOT a factory” when a troll asked why she hasn’t had more kids like her famous cousins.
The niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar is the mother to one son, Daxton Ryan.
Amy, 34, shared a message from a troll on her Instagram account for her 400k followers.
The message said: “Hello Amy. I would just like to say you’re a good mom but aren’t you are a little behind some other famous people who are having four babies by the time they are 20? You only have one. He’s so cute. I think your body is fine to have more. I like you to have a fun life but don’t be selfish with your life. Pick up the pace you should have been pregnant again like yesterday. Ok gurl well if you need help losing weight I can help you. Just DM…so much love.”
Amy shared the message and said she “tried so hard not to post this,” but she has to “speak my mind!”
She wrote to her followers: “This is a message I received yesterday. I think what really got to me was the fact that this total stranger apparently knows my body so well! And literally tells me that my body is ok to produce more children.
Ready for my rant!? Of course you are!!”
She added: “First off I’m flabbergasted that someone would have the audacity to type these words to anyone!! I mean. Who in their right mind says ‘I think your body is ready to pop out more kids’ to a total stranger?! This is for all the ‘Karen’s out there.’
“My body has been through a lot and it gave me the sweetest boy ever. Yes of course it was worth it. But I still need to heal. C- sections are no joke and vertigo is/ was very hard on me. I still get dizzy sometimes but I’m getting stronger everyday.
“Also. I AM TIRED. Anyone else!? This pandemic has been so rough on so many people and my business has taken a hit just like so many others. I need to be on my A game. I need to give it my all.”
While raising her son with her husband, Dillion, Amy is also the owner of the clothing line 3130 and admitted she needs to “stay creative and focus on” it.
She said that while “children are such a blessing,” she can’t “imagine being pregnant again right now” saying she would “be unmotivated, emotional, stressed out and not in a good head space and that’s ok to admit.”
Amy continued: “I’m a very hands on mom, and I also want to give my son my full attention. This toddler stage is so amazing and I don’t want to miss a thing!◇ A women’s body is not a factory!! Yes our bodies can do miraculous things! But I hate that phrase” pop out” umm. No. It’s WORK. And our bodies go through a lot!”
Amy explained that she is “an only child” and thinks she “grew up just fine.”
She concluded her message: “Honestly we are teetering on that idea. Some women are designed not to have large families. I am one of them. Too much noise, chaos , it’s just not for me. But kudos to those mama’s who do! God gave you super human strength Deep down even though in a way it terrifies me I’d love to foster or adopt. It’s exhausting always being compared to other people. I’m in my thirties now, away from that show and I’m so over it. It just has to stop.”
The Duggar cousin, who has long broken free of their strict dress code, hit out at her famous family’s method of disciplining their children using “blanket training,” calling the style of parenting “abusive.”
Amy posted a picture in front of a pile of toys and then another of her son, Daxton, playing on the floor on Instagram.
She captioned the post: “There is NO blanket training happening at this house!! I want my child to roam free and to feel safe doing so! I want him to explore and be curious and make messes!
“Yes, we will be right beside him every step of the way. Dill and I believe that a blanket should be used for comfort only!!!
“Children need love and acceptance and praise! They shouldn’t ever be controlled. And there’s a fine line between re-direction and abuse. Our child will not grow up being fearful!”
