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,

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.


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.
