Hussey, 31, is best known as an influencer and content creator on TikTok. Under the handle @kidsmealsupreme, she has attracted over 58,000 followers and millions of likes for her fashion, product, and music content.

Hussey has also released her own singles like “XO,” “Yellow,” and “TOXIC,” racking up thousands of streams on Spotify. While not smash hits, these songs showcase her vocal talents and pop sensibilities.

A Fateful First Meeting Sets the Stage for Romance

According to People magazine, King vividly remembers his first encounter with Hussey, saying:

“She waltzed up on my bus like she owned it, and I was taken with her sweet southern drawl. She asked to connect to the Bluetooth, blared Linda Ronstadt and Aretha Franklin, and we sang and danced till it was time for the bus to leave. I told her the next morning to quit her job and marry me instead.”

Clearly smitten, King bestowed Hussey with the nickname “little bird,” a sweet detail that factored into their wedding ceremony:

“Marcus has called me ‘little bird’ since the night we met, so during our ceremony, Leah Blevins will be performing her song ‘Little Bird’ that starts out with the lyrics, ‘We got married on a Sunday.’”

On February 26, 2022, Hussey announced their engagement on Instagram, showing off her ring with the caption “Mrs. King sure has a nice ring to it.”

The two tied the knot on February 19, 2023, in an elegant ceremony at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Judging by their social media, married life seems to be treating the lovebirds well so far!
