Singer Elle King announced that she is expecting her first child with her fiancé Dan Tooker after suffering two heartbreaking miscarriages in the past. The soon-to-be mom described the pregnancy as a “miracle.”


Elle King and her fiancé Dan Tooker are expecting their first child together! The “America’s Sweetheart” crooner shared the fantastic news on Instagram with a series of photos, including one of her and Tooker holding the sonogram images.

The lovebirds were seen sitting in a vintage car with sweet smiles on their faces with the roll of sonogram photos hanging on the front mirror. King stunned in a brown gown with layers underneath a stylish nude jacket with fringes.

In the accompanying caption, King revealed that she and Tooker were extremely excited to share their pregnancy news. However, alongside the intense joy is a great sense of fear. In her words:

“You see, this miracle baby comes after two very big losses. It’s a terrifying and extremely painful experience for everyone. But the sun always rises…”


The Grammy nominee admitted that it was difficult to always hear a pregnancy announcement. However, now with her breakthrough, she wants to assure other women struggling with loss or infertility that there is hope.

Tooker, a tattoo artist, and King got engaged last year October after a year of dating.


In an interview with People Magazine discussing her pregnancy, the 31-year-old disclosed that she is in her second trimester and considers each day of the journey as a miracle as having a child is something she has wanted for so long.

In the past, King had suffered two devastating miscarriages due to polycystic ovary syndrome that results in a hormone imbalance. Recounting her experience, the songwriter noted that it was lonely and filled with shame.


She recalled the anxiety that comes with hiding the news of her pregnancy before the 12-week mark because she’d hate to raise their hopes unfairly. However, amid the rollercoaster of emotions, she enjoyed a support system in her loved ones.

The “Wild Cherry” star shared that she and Tooker found out about their pregnancy on Christmas Day last year and would wait until the birth to discover the gender of their first child.


Tooker, a tattoo artist, and King got engaged last year October after a year of dating. In her announcement, she revealed that she planned to propose to her man during a trip to Mexico, but he beat her to it.

A month after the engagement, King mentioned in an interview that the lockdown played a significant role in taking her and Tooker’s relationship to the next level. She said that they quarantined together, and that brought them closer.
