The world has enjoyed the gift and talent of Carole King for many decades. Known for her successful solo career, King went on to win multiple awards and make a name for herself.

Aside from her career, King has something she places more value on, which is her kids. The "You've Got a Friend" singer has four children, Louise, Sherry, Molly, and Levi, who are her heartbeat.

FIRST-TIME MOM

King's first experience with motherhood was during her first marriage to her first husband, Gerry Goffin, who was a lyricist. The couple married in 1959 and shared two kids between them.

In 1969, King and Goffin ended their marriage after almost a decade together with two kids. The American singer-songwriter would go on to find love and raise more kids.

OTHER LOVERS

After her first marriage, King wedded Charles Larkey in 1970. She went on to share her last two children with him before they split in 1976.

Her last two unions with Rick Evers and Rick Sorenson had no kids in them. The music star raised her kids away from the spotlight. Despite a super busy career, King still prioritized her kids.

The youngest of the pack. Levi was born in 1974, and unlike his older siblings, he lives a life that is out of the spotlight. Not so much is known of him, but he is as involved in entertainment as his family.

King has received multiple awards for her illustrious career and contributions to the music industry. In 1987, she was reportedly inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame alongside her ex-husband and music partner Gerry Goffin.
