Singer-songwriter Elle King, born Tanner Elle Schneider, has announced the arrival of her first child. Elle and her fiancé, Dan Tooker, welcomed a baby on Wednesday, September 1st. Their little one made their arrival at 12:06 pm. “We welcomed 8 lbs 1 oz of absolute joy and love earthside,” Elle wrote in her announcement post.
Elle, who is the daughter of actor Rob Schneider, shared a picture of her and Dan holding their newborn baby. It’s a boy! “Very proud to announce the birth of our son,” the “Ex’s and Oh’s” singer wrote. She revealed that she and Dan have named their son Lucky Levi Tooker. Lucky is an American name that means “Fortunate” while Levi is a name of Hebrew origin that means “Joined in Harmony.” The songwriter shared that “We are all healthy and feeling so blessed!”
In March of this year, Elle revealed she and Dan were expecting. “We are very excited to share the news that we are pregnant,” the “Baby Outlaw” singer wrote at the time. “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.”
Elle continued her announcement post by candidly opening up about her experience. “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. 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 makes us nothing less than WARRIORS. So thank you for your prayers and love for our high-risk pregnancy!”
Congratulations to Elle and Dan on welcoming Lucky into the world! We wish their family all the best.
