Amy Duggar got married over the weekend, and she said she’s happy to leave her family name behind.

“It’s a relief,” Amy, who is now a King, told Entertainment Tonight. “It feels like the stress is gone. I don’t have to be perfect anymore. I don’t have to worry about wearing long skirts. And I got to marry my best friend!”

Amy is Jim Bob Duggar’s niece and Josh Duggar’s cousin.

Most of the Duggars attended Amy’s wedding with the exception of Josh, who checked himself into a faith-based rehab facility in August after he admitted he was addicted to porn and cheated on his wife. (RELATED: Josh Duggar Checks Into Rehab)

“I gave Anna a huge hug,” Amy said.

“I gave my Aunt Michelle a huge hug. And I got them gifts to make them feel welcome — I gave Anna a gift card to get her nails done — she deserves to pamper herself. I gave Aunt Michelle a gift certificate to her favorite restaurant. We’re really thankful they came.” (RELATED: Josh Duggar Admits To Porn Addiction, Cheating On His Wife)

Anna is Josh Duggar’s wife. They have four children together.

But Amy’s husband Dillon King didn’t have nice things to say about his newest family member, Josh. (RELATED: Police Report: Sister Was 5 When Josh Duggar Molested Her)

“You don’t just surf the Internet and decide to randomly open an Ashley Madison account,” King said. “Josh consciously made the decision to cheat. Anna should leave him. People talk about the Biblical aspect of all this — read Matthew. It talks about how adultery is the one reason to divorce. Josh did it, and I’m going to guess he did it multiple times.” (RELATED: This Porn Star Claims She Had Sex With Josh Duggar Twice)
