The Duggar family tree just got a little bigger!
Amy Duggar and her husband Dillon King welcomed their first child on Wednesday. People reports that the couple’s son, Daxton Ryan King, was born via C-section, weighing 7 lbs., 8 oz. and measuring 20 inches.
The couple’s photographer Loren Bullard told the magazine that Amy had a “smooth and easy delivery.”
“Both mom and baby are great and healthy,” she added.
The Kings, who appeared on a season of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, announced in April that they were expecting after nearly four years of marriage (a rarity by Duggar standards). In June, they revealed they were having a baby boy. At the time, Amy said she “always wanted to be a boy mom” and that she and Dillon had already picked out a name.
Amy’s announcement of Daxton’s arrival on social media brought in many well wishes in the comment section, with Jill Duggar and Anna Duggar among the first to send their congratulations to the now family of three.
“Aww! Love this! Congrats guys,” Jill wrote.
“Congratulations!!! Such a beautiful family,” Anna added.
Unlike her fruitful family who commonly multiply like it’s their job, Amy told Us Weekly in 2015 that she and Dillon plan to have a small brood.
“We don’t want a lot of kids,” she said.
Aside from Amy and Dillon’s new addition, the Duggar family is expected to grow even more in the near future as John-David and his wife Abbie are currently expecting their first child, as are Josiah and Lauren. Joe and Kendra are also expecting (baby number 2), as well as Josh and Anna (baby number 6).

Amy is the only one I can be happy for (and maybe Jinger if she waits another year at least to have another), she might be a Duggar (although her maiden name was Jordan and her married name is King) but she is totally different from her cousins. (She even had a boy while everyone else is having a girl, ha!) Daxton will be allowed to pursue an education and career, he will be allowed to do whatever he wants (even if that means drinking and partying in college, unheard in the Duggar world!) and raised by fun parents.
He also won’t have a ton of siblings.
Welcome to the world, little one, I hope you won’t be weirded out too much by the people you will be related too! (Your mom sometimes had the best expressions when her uncle spoke)
In other breaking news, my neighbor down the street got a new goat. I find that much more interesting than another Duggar having a baby. I’ve never watched this show, but since this is all they raised the daughters to aspire to, please don’t report on these people and the hundred million grandkids the matriarch and patriarch are going to have.
Happy for this family.
So glad they waited 4 years!
Amy was not raised the same way as the duggars you’re refering to.
She has a career as a small business owner. She’s been married 4 years before having her first child.
She seems like a sweet, average everyday new mom.
She seems down to earth, so I’m happy for her.
