Since announcing her pregnancy in early May, the former model and first-time mom-to-be has been tweeting about the impending arrival of her baby. "Our baby has the best name: The Untitled Newman-King Project," she joked on Tuesday, June 18. Nine days later, King tweeted, "The most amazing thing I have experienced in my life thus far is feeling my baby move. This baby is pure rock n' roll."

King, who recently began production on the third season of The CW's Hart of Dixie, also revealed she was having a tough time getting her baby's nursery ready. "I started looking online but it's really hard to find the right crib," she told Us. "There are a couple that I really like, but it has to go with the rest of my house because my house is mid-century."
