Earlier in the day the couple revealed that their son, Daxton, was due to arrive via C-section.

“Brb.. we’re gonna go be parents now!!” she captioned a photo of the couple outside what looked like a hospital. “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!!!”

She later posted an Instagram Stories clip that showed her prepped for surgery along with the caption, “Here we go,” with a blue heart.

The Marriage Boot Camp alums announced in April that they were expecting their first child with an adorable Instagram reveal, featuring puffy gold balloons. “BABY KING IS ON THE WAY!!!” the pregnant star, 32, wrote at the time. “Happy Easter from our growing family to yours!!”
