Amy Duggar and Husband Dillon King Welcome Their Firstborn Son, Daxton Ryan
Reality star Amy Duggar finally becomes a "boy mom" as reports share that she has birthed her first child, son Daxton Ryan, with her husband, Dillon King.
In an exclusive report shared by PEOPLE, Amy, who is best described as the niece of famous reality stars, Jim Bob and Michelle, delivered baby Daxton on Wednesday, October 9.
Daxton, who will be Amy and husband Dillon King's very first child together, was delivered via cesarean section. He was born weighing seven lbs., eight oz., and measured 20 inches. Loren Bullard, who had the honor of taking photographs for the new parents, told PEOPLE,
"Smooth and easy delivery. Both mom and baby are great and healthy!"

Brb.. we're gonna go be parents now!! Surprise!! Our little Daxton will be here today!! 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. 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. 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!!! 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!!!
It is a dream come true for Amy, 32, who had formerly expressed a longing to be a "boy mom." She and Dillon first announced they were expecting a child in April before making the exciting update that their unborn child is male in June.
Unlike most celeb couples are known to do, the pair chose to share their journey, becoming new parents with the public. Not only did they reveal the sex of their unborn child, but they also shared that his name will be Daxton Ryan and why they chose to name him so.
That is perhaps because of the couple's excitement becoming first-time parents. The couple said to PEOPLE,
"We are completely speechless, overly excited, and ready for the next chapter as new parents!"

Late last year, the new parents, who had been close-knit friends before tying the knot in 2015, had explained that they have "been practicing" for when the kids come.
While the couple also honestly admitted that they were nervous, they labeled the task one that is "astonishing" and one they can "hardly wait" to experience.
