After her exit from the family series in 2014, TLC came up with a special just for her entitled, "A Duggar Leaves Home," which showcased King's journey pursuing a music career.

THE KING'S WELCOME BABY DAXTON

King delivered her son Daxton on Wednesday, October 9 via C-section. He entered the world healthy, weighing seven lbs., eight oz., and 20 inches.

The couple's photographer, Loren Bullard, told PEOPLE of the "smooth and easy" delivery King had that allowed "both mom and baby" to be "great and healthy."

During King's announcement of her pregnancy and the baby's gender, she said that she was excited about what was to come as being a mother to a baby boy was her dream. She said:

"We just can't wait for this little ball of energy to arrive. He's already named, so let all the embroidery begin. I am so obsessed with baby bathrobes!"

LIFE BEFORE DAXTOR AND AFTER THE SHOW

King used to be part of the show "19 Kids and Counting" as her mom, Deanna, was Jim Bob's sister. However, unlike her cousins, she didn't have to follow the strict family rules.

After her exit from the family series in 2014, TLC came up with a special just for her entitled, "A Duggar Leaves Home," which showcased King's journey pursuing a music career.

The following year, she married Dillon King, who appeared with her in 2017's series, "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars," that revealed their struggles as a couple. She then shared:

"For me, whenever we would, we still argue of course. Whenever we argue, I would freak out. He'd be like, 'Babe, this is life. This is normal. I'm here, and I'm not leaving.' And he gave reassurance."
