King became a first-time grandmother in September of 2021 when her “favorite daughter” welcomed son, Luca.

“I wanted to be a grandmother for a long time, and it’s really something when you see your own child become a parent,” she said on air at the time. “I am so nuts about him. And then I was holding him, Kirby goes, ‘You know, you have to support his neck.’ Uh, okay! I actually know how to do this!”
