King announced that Bumpus and her husband Virgil Miller welcomed their first child together in September.

“Kirby came out of the hospital on Friday and I got on a plane, I left the set, I got on a plane and I actually hit her at her house on Friday because it took me a long time to be discharged from the hospital,” she said on CBS this morning, adding: “I wanted to be a grandmother for a long time, and it’s really something when you see your own son become a father. I’m so crazy about him. And then I was hugging him, Kirby says, ‘You know, you have to hold his neck. Uh, okay! I actually know how to do this! “

King revealed the news about his daughter’s pregnancy while in The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April.

“We haven’t told anyone because they’ve kept me a secret. She told all of her friends last weekend, so she said she could tell you. And, Ellen, I’m going to be a grandmother and I can. ‘ Waiting! “He told the talk show host during the day.” Right before I went on the air, I said, ‘Kirby, if Ellen doesn’t ask me about the grandkids, I won’t bring it up. But if you ask me, I don’t want to stand there and say I don’t know. I do not want to do that. “
