The 33-year-old singer became a mom after suffering two pregnancy losses.
Elle King recently released her third album, Come Get Your Wife, which included a song in honor of her 16-month-old son, Lucky Levi. The album is her third LP but her first full country album.
The singer-songwriter who lives in the Nashville area feels at home making country music after shuffling between multiple genres. The song titled Lucky is especially personal to the singer who become a mom after suffering two pregnancy losses. She shares her baby boy with fiancé Dan Tooker, a tattoo artist, reports PEOPLE.
"I've been a runner / I've been a fighter / I've been the fuse / Hell, I've been the lighter / Taken every wrong turn down the bridges I burned / It's a bad reputation, but it's damn well earned / Gotta thank God that this ol' life ain't fair / There's only one way to explain how I got here / I got lucky," King sings on the special track paying tribute to her baby.
The 33-year-old, who is the daughter of famed actor Rob Schneider, told the outlet that her son is aware of the song and that it fills her heart with emotion knowing that. "He knows the Lucky song because the day that I wrote it, I went back [home], and I literally quietly cried while I played it for him on the phone," King shared. "He was in the studio when we recorded it, and he knows that's his song." According to the proud mom not only does her son know his name he also "knows that that's for him. He recognizes my voice, and it's beautiful to see. He'll go up and put his hand on the speaker."
The musician previously opened up to PEOPLE about her struggle with pregnancy losses due to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) which causes hormonal imbalances and can lead to irregular cycles, which affects ovulation. The Grammy-nominated singer wants to change the stigma around loss. "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 confessed.
King wants people to stop feeling shame talking about such a difficult situation in so many people's lives. "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 s—."
The Ex's & Oh's singer wants moms who have been through such struggles to reach out to loved ones sooner so that they don't have to be alone during such a painful time. "When I got pregnant, I told my mom, I told my dad, I told my sister, I told my brother, I told my closest friends. Because God forbid I go through that again, I'm going to need my support team. I'm going to need my family and the people that love me to say, 'It's okay.' "
