So relatable. Amy Duggar King shared on her Instagram Story that at 36 weeks pregnant, all she wants is “a mocktail and some queso.” Oh, and “some color on these legs.” LOL. Mama’s got cravings and jokes!
The Counting On cousin first announced in April that she’s expecting her first child with her husband, Dillon King. The couple took to Instagram to share the news with their fans on Easter, April 21. “BABY KING IS ON THE WAY!!!” Amy, 32, wrote that day. “Happy Easter from our growing family to yours!!”
Since then, Amy has been incredibly open with her followers about how her pregnancy is progressing. On September 9, for instance, she shared, “I just realized there’s only 30 days left till my due date!!! Which is October 9th!! So many emotions!! OMG!! But I have a feeling he might just come a little early … praying my water doesn’t break while I’m at the boutique! LOL.” She was referring to her store, 3130, which recently expanded and seems to be doing very well.
In July, Amy also revealed the name she and Dillon chose for their baby boy. “Baby K has a name!!!” she wrote on a picture of the name that she had written in the sand she stood on. “Baby Dax we cannot wait to meet you!! You already bring so much joy into our lives!! We love you so much Daxton Ryan! 💙💙” Her husband revealed to In Touch exclusively at WEtv’s Love After Lockup screening, “Everybody in my family, on the male side, all start with D’s, so we had to have a D name, so we landed on Daxton. And then Ryan is an Irish name and it means ‘Little King’ and since our last name is King, it just fit really well.”
Amy shared on August 5 that her late grandmother, Mary Duggar, actually knew the baby’s name before she died suddenly on June 9. (The Duggar family later confirmed that she passed away from accidental drowning.) She wrote on Instagram, “Not one day has gone by that I don’t miss her. I wish I could call her, get her opinion on things, go get ice cream and spend the day together … she loved the name Dax Ryan and she was so excited about our little guy.” We like to think Grandma Mary would have been a fan of Amy’s upbeat humor throughout her pregnancy, too.
