“We had to go with Dax. Everybody in my family on the male side all start with D’s,” Dillon told OKMagazine.com on August 13 at WEtv's Love After Lockup screaning. “So, we had to have a D name”
Amy’s 19 cousins are also named with the theme of the letter J.
“We landed on Daxton and then Ryan is an Irish name and it means ‘little king.’ Since our last name’s King, it just fit really well,” Dillon added.
“He’s going to have style,” the pregnant star added of her son’s cool name. “He already has a Bentley Trike.”
Amy chimed in and said, “It just melts my heart! It’s the perfect name.”
