Amy Duggar King Is Pregnant with Her First Child: 'I'm Over the Moon!'

Amy Duggar King Is Pregnant with Her First Child: 'I'm Over the Moon!'

Amy Duggar King and her husband Dillon King are expecting their first child together, due in October.

“We are completely speechless, overly excited and ready for the next chapter as new parents!” the couple tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Duggar and King were longtime friends before they exchanged “I dos” in a country-chic wedding on the grounds of Horton Farms near Bentonville, Arkansas, in 2015.

Last December, the pair admitted they already had babies on the brain. “The kids are coming,” said King. “We’ve been practicing.”

Now, as they prepare to become first-time parents, Duggar and King admit they’re both excited and a little nervous.

“The learning curve of being a new father is kind of terrifying, but at the same time equally astonishing,” says King.

The one aspect of pregnancy that Duggar isn’t a big fan of? Cutting out one of her favorite foods. “I miss Chick-fil-A,” says the mom-to-be. “Baby King isn’t a fan of chicken.”

Still, motherhood couldn’t come any sooner. “I’m over the moon about becoming a momma! I just can’t hardly wait!”
