"We connected on a dating app, texted for a day or two, then spent five straight hours on the phone the first time we spoke," King told Brides magazine, in an interview published the day of the wedding. "By the time that call ended, Cuffe was booked and packed for a flight to St. Louis that took off in about eight hours. Within a week, we were back on the East Coast, meeting his family, and starting to plan our future together. We didn't leave each other's side for weeks."
"Our wedding was about two things for us," she continued. "Our love for and commitment to each other, and our family — each of our families, and the new very large and very tight family that we were bonding together by getting married. That's it."
King shares daughter Aspen, 5, and 3-year-old twin sons Hart and Hayes with ex-husband Jim Edmonds; she ended their five year marriage in 2019 amid accusations of infidelity.
Upon hearing of her whirlwind wedding at the time, Edmonds told the Daily Mail: "I thought it was a joke. They'd been dating for about four weeks!" Then I wondered, 'Is she pregnant?' But is it even possible to know that just four weeks after the first date?"
King was also previously married to lawyer Brad McDill from 2007 to 2011.
