Amy Duggar King Is Pregnant with Her First Child Im 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!”

Man Who Spent 12 Years Behind Bars After Being Wrongfully Convicted Killed in Hit-and-Run Reports

Man Who Spent 12 Years Behind Bars After Being Wrongfully Convicted Killed in Hit-and-Run Reports

A man killed in a hit-and-run in Los Angeles on Thursday was identified as Andrew Mallard, who spent 12 years in prison for a crime he reportedly did not commit.

A statement from the Los Angeles Police Department said that a hit-and-run occurred around 1:30 a.m. on Thursday when a car traveling east on Sunset Boulevard crashed into a man walking south on Formosa Avenue.

According to the LAPD, the Los Angeles Fire Department arrived to treat the victim, but he died of his injuries.

The police statement added that the driver of the vehicle did not stop, and continued to flee east on Sunset.

According to KABC, the man was subsequently identified as Mallard, 56. (A spokesperson for the LAPD directed PEOPLE’s request for confirmation to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office, who did not immediately respond.)

Surveillance footage obtained by the news outlet appears to show Mallard buying cigarettes and talking to the clerk inside of a liquor store right before the fatal accident.

The West Australian reported that Mallard was living in Los Angeles with his fiancée.

In 1995, Mallard was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of jewelry shop owner Pamela Lawrence, according to CNN. He was later the subject of the documentary Saving Andrew Mallard.

Mallard was exonerated and released from prison in 2006, as a police review of the case implicated another man with the murder of Lawrence.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Mallard accepted a $3.25 million settlement from the Western Australian government in 2009.

The LAPD is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information about the hit-and-run. Anyone with information is urged to call LAPD detectives at (213) 473-0234 or (877) 527-3247.
