Currently, Amy Duggar King is expecting her first child with her husband, Dillon King. The couple tied the knot in September 2015 and have been happily married since. On Easter Sunday of this year, they announced that they are expecting their first child together.
Throughout her pregnancy, Amy has been sharing plenty of updates with her fans via social media. Her followers love her posts about her growing baby bump. She even shares hilarious and honest ones about pregnancy too. In a recent post, she wrote about a conversation she had with her husband in the middle of the night. She shared,
“Real life conversations at 3am:
Him: Why can’t you sleep?
Me: ummm he’s tap dancing on my rib cage…
Him: So?? Babe , just go to sleep…
Me: I CAN’T!!!
Him: But whyyyy???
Love my little ninja kicking machine”.
Amy recently babymooned with Dillon and her mom, Deanna. A babymoon is the last trip a couple takes before becoming parents. On the vacation to Florida, Amy announced the baby’s name with a cute photo of it written in the sand. They will be naming him Daxton Ryan and will call him Dax as a nickname.
Amy Duggar King shares update on baby’s health
On Tuesday, Amy posted on her Instagram stories. She shared a picture of herself cradling her baby bump. On the photo, she wrote, “Ultrasound day! Baby is healthy as can be.. thank you Jesus!!”
As far as her followers know, the pregnancy has gone pretty smoothly. She didn’t share any updates suggesting that her baby’s health was not good. She is likely just happy to know that everything is going well and that her baby should arrive safely when he is born in a few months.
About a month ago, Amy’s cousin Joy Duggar Forsyth tragically lost her daughter at 20 weeks gestation. This was a hard loss on the entire family. Because Amy and Joy are close family members, Amy may have realized how lucky she is to have a healthy baby on the way.

Today marks one week since we heard these words… . “So this is your baby’s heart (pointing to the ultrasound screen). I don’t hear a heartbeat or see any movement.” . We had gone in for our 20-week ultrasound and gender reveal. It was a baby girl. Although we don’t understand why, God has given us unexplainable peace and comfort during this very difficult time. Yes, it still hurts and we have cried countless tears, but we know that we can trust the Lord. In the words of King David after the loss of his baby, “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me” (2 Sam 12:23). We don’t grieve as those who have no hope because we trust that we will see this little one again. We named her Annabell Elise. Annabell means “God has favored me”, and Elise means “God satisfies”. What a precious thing to know that when our daughter opened her eyes, the first thing she saw was the face of Jesus. Please pray for continued healing, not only physically but for our hearts as well. . “All the way my Savior leads me; What have I to ask beside? Can I doubt His tender mercy, Who through life has been my Guide? Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort, Here by faith in Him to dwell! For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well, For I know, whate’er befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.” -Fanny Crosby
Learning of Joy’s loss might have made Amy feel a little nervous that something could go wrong with her own pregnancy. Fortunately, it seems like everything is still okay with Amy and her baby, Dax.
