Elle King and fiancé Dan Tooker “made a little human”!
Wednesday on Instagram, the “Ex’s & Oh’s” singer announced she is pregnant with her first child.
“Well, we did something! Me and @tattooker made a little human! We are very excited to share the news that we are pregnant,” the musician, who is the daughter of actor Rob Schneider, wrote on her page.
She also revealed to People on Wednesday that she and her soon-to-be-husband, whom she got engaged to last October, got their baby news on Christmas.
“We found out on Christmas. I couldn’t imagine a greater Christmas gift than a positive pregnancy test,” King told the magazine.
Prior to this, King tragically suffered two pregnancy losses due to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a condition that causes a hormonal imbalance.
“It’s such a major thing that so many people go through, but it’s so secretive — like you have to go through it alone,” King told the outlet.
“Nobody talks about it. It’s like you’re supposed to feel shame; like you’re not supposed to tell people before 12 weeks, because if you lose it, it’s going to be embarrassing for you and you don’t want other people to get their hopes up. Like, holy ----.”
In her Instagram post, King expressed sympathy to other women who have had or are experiencing infertility issues.
“This news comes with a great deal of fear, and I hope that all mothers-to-be, in whatever sense that may be, know that I am trying to be very sensitive. You see, this miracle baby comes after two very big losses. It’s a terrifying and extremely painful experience for everyone,” she wrote.
Overall, King encourages others to not give up hope on their dreams of starting a family.
“But the sun always rises, and I never really let go to let the universe decide when I was ready. I remember every pregnancy announcement felt like a dagger to me. So I want to be very delicate and say to YOU! That soon to be mom, who’s maybe had a loss, or has been struggling with fertility, I’m telling you, our babies come.”
“And I love you. What women go through on this journey make us nothing less than WARRIORS. So thank you for your prayers and love for our high risk pregnancy!” she concluded her IG note.
Congratulations to Elle and Dan!
