“I’ve always wanted to be a boy mom! Dillon builds lifted trucks, so I can just imagine how suped-up the Power Wheels will be,” she told PEOPLE exclusively. “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 bath robes!”

In July, the couple — who got married in September 2015 — revealed they already had a name picked out for their bundle of joy.

“Baby Dax we cannot wait to meet you!!” she wrote on Instagram. “You already bring so much joy into our lives!! We love you so much Daxton Ryan!”

As for the reason behind the name, “On the King side of the family, all the letters begin with the letter ‘D,'” Dillon said on PEOPLE Now in August. “So we were trying to figure out a ‘D’ name that was different, and we landed on Dax, then Daxton.”

Added Amy: “And then Ryan stands for ‘Little King,’ so it was like, we have to!”

“He’s going to come out wearing sunglasses, like, ‘What’s up, I’m Dax!’ ” Amy joked. “He’s going to have a cool style.”
