Although the exact date the couple began dating is not known, they only decided to go ‘official’ on Instagram in September just weeks before tying the knot on October 11. 

The couple got married at Owens’ childhood home in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania with he president and First lady Dr. Jill Biden were both guests at the nuptials.    

The ceremony came weeks after King first made the relationship public in an Instagram post shared on September 25, which featured a picture of the couple embracing while enjoying drinks at a bar. 

‘Trying my best to avoid any cheesy introductions like “my main squeeze”… so just meet my man,’ she wrote to her legions of fans.

But just two weeks ago, there were signs of trouble in paradise with King posting a photo of herself spread out on a hotel bed telling followers that it felt as though she had been ‘married for a million years’ and asking fans to share advice to help keep the marriage alive. 

‘We feel like we’ve been married for a million years (thanks to marrying later in life and with a lot of history and, well, kids) so a two month anniversary staycation was called for. Tomorrow real life commences but a few hours in a hotel will do a new marriage good. Please, give us more good marriage tips!’ she begged.  

Some on social media had begun to suspect that all was not well in the lives of the newlyweds with Owens rarely appearing in any of King’s photos. 

The last photo on Instagram in which Owens appears was on November 24, just six weeks after their wedding.

King also removed his last name from her social media pages. 

‘Not trying to be rude or offensive here! Just genuinely curious…..where is your husband?’ asked one. Another chimed in: ‘Where is your husband? Never see him.’

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com, King’s former husband, ex professional baseball player, Jim Edmonds, revealed how she called him out of the blue the day before her wedding to the President’s nephew.

He said, ‘She called me to tell me she was getting married. It was the first I heard anything about it. 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?’

‘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.com of her whirlwind love affair.     

‘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.’ 

King had previously been married to a classmate, Brad McDill, but they separated in October 2011. She married MLB superstar Jim Edmonds in 2014 and divorced after five years over  allegations that Edmonds was unfaithful.

Owens is the son of Biden’s sister, Valerie Owens, who has played a pivotal role in her brother’s political career including as adviser to his triumphant 2020 presidential run.
