"Ex's & Oh's" singer Elle King is pregnant. She and her fiancé, Dan Tooker, are expecting a "miracle baby," after what she described as "two very big losses."
"Well, we did something! Me and @tattooker made a little human!" King wrote on Instagram to announce the happy news. "We are very excited to share the news that we are pregnant. This news comes with a great deal of fear...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, and I never really let go to let the universe decide when I was ready," she continued. "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."
King, 31, then wrote that what women go through in their efforts to have children "make us nothing less than WARRIORS," adding that her pregnancy is "high-risk."
She also noted the irony of being pregnant when she recently put out a song with country star Miranda Lambert called "Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home)," adding, "I am a very sober pregnant lady btw."
King and Tooker have been engaged since last fall. She was previously married to Andrew Ferguson, whom she married in 2016 after knowing him just a few weeks. They split in May of 2017, following Ferguson's April 2017 arrest for felony domestic violence -- a charge that was later dropped.
When it arrives, King's bundle of joy will make her dad, comic actor Rob Schneider, a grandfather.
