The Counting On star added the hashtags “He’s A Keeper” and “My Adorable Baby Cousin.”
Jill shared another close-up photo on Daxton on her Instagram Story. “This kid… is so adorable!” she wrote. “We love you Daxton Ryan!”
Many of Amy’s other cousins are away in either Los Angeles or Aspen for different family trips, although they’ve all commented there excitement to meet Daxton. “A new cousin! ? We’re so excited for Amy and Dillon!! Congratulations on the birth of precious Daxton Ryan! ? We can’t wait for all of the snuggles,” the family wrote on Instagram.
Contrary to her cousins, who filmed their at-home births for Counting On, Amy opted to have a hospital birth. “Oh, I’m scared as ever to give birth,” she told OK! “Give me all the good meds. I’m like, for real.”
Amy gave birth via C-section on her due date, October 9, after her doctor informed her and Dillon that there was an “85% chance” that they would have an “emergency situation.” She told fans, “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.”
