Big news today from the Duggar family's resident rebel!
Amy Duggar announced on Wednesday that she was preparing to welcome her first child.
While Amy and husband Dillon King have not updated their Instagram accounts since, Us Weekly and other outlets have now confirmed that the Kings welcomed a baby boy just hours after Amy's post.
If you follow her on social media, you know that from the time Amy announced her pregnancy, she's been remarkably candid with fans every step of the way.
That remained true as she prepared to check into her local hopsital to undergo a C-section yesterday:
“Brb.. we’re gonna go be parents now!!” she captioned a photo of herself and Dillon.
“Surprise!! Our little Daxton will be here today!!" Amy added.
"With my small frame and the fact that the Dr. Said theres an 85% chance I’d have an emergency situation. We went ahead and scheduled a cesarean to be on the safe side."
Because this is the internet in 2019, Amy felt the need to antipate haters:
"I’m sure there will be negative comments. But I have to do what’s right for my body and what’s healthy for my son," she wrote.
"I’ve been mentally and spiritually preparing myself for this I’m trying to relax, and not worry! But I’ve never had surgery before, I’ve never even stayed in a hospital before, so I’m just a ball of nerves…soo I’d appreciate your prayers!!!" the 32-year-old added.
"But in just a few hours our lives will be forever changed! I’m focused on God’s promises and that sweet little face!! Ok, daddy let’s do this!!!”
Dillon posted the same pic with a much more succinct caption, writing:
"Today is the day!! #daxryan Excited for the new chapter for our lives @amyrachelleking love you baby!"
The couple announced that they were expecting back in April.
“BABY KING IS ON THE WAY!!!” Amy wrote on Instagram at the time. “Happy Easter from our growing family to yours!!”
While many stars are secretive about such matters as the baby's name and gender, Amy has been an open book from the start, revealing the moniker of Daxton Ryan as soon as she and Dillon settled on it.
Amy was part of this year's Duggar baby boom, getting pregnant around the same time as several of her famous cousins.
In a recent interview, Amy announced that she was afraid to give birth, but thankfully, she's now cleared that hurdle safely.
Out sincere congrats go out to Amy and Dillon!
