Elle King’s son, Lucky Levi, is old enough to join his mom on the road and she is loving every second of it.
After suffering the loss of two pregnancies, the singer/songwriter finally welcomed her first child to the world with her fiancé Dan Tooker on September 1, 2021. In addition to learning how to navigate the new chapter of her life as a mom, King has also had to figure out how to balance her time on the road with a baby.
“I’m really excited to bring Lucky out on the road. It’s been a really big dream of mine to become a mom and have a family. And I’ve always kind of dreamt about having my family touring with me and seeing the world and experiencing life together,” King said in a recent interview. “It’s really, really fun and it fills up my heart and he’s the best.“
Ahead of her birthday in July, Lucky saw his mom perform live for the first time at a concert in Sioux City, IA. King held him on stage as she sang her hit, “Ex’s & Oh’s” and earned a roar of cheering from the crowd in excitement for the little one.
The singer later shared a photo of her and her little boy in his pajamas as they boarded their plane to their next destination. The mother and son shared a kiss before she showed him the plane up close, which of course sparked his curiosity to reach out and touch the giant vehicle in front of him.
“Gon’ need g3, 4, 5, 6 flights,” King wrote in the caption under the photos.
According to a more recent photo dump that King posted, Lucky is growing as fast as ever. He’s already taken his first steps and said his first words.
Elle King Recently Released “Worth A Shot” With Dierks Bentley
Not only is her family a big part of her tour, but King’s husband and son also made an appearance in her latest music video with country superstar Dierks Bentley, who is featured on her current single, “Worth A Shot.”
Co-penned by Ross Copperman and Shane McAnally, this song first belonged to Bentley, who cut the track on his own, but after hearing that King was also interested in it, he decided to give it to her. She then suggested that it would work best as a duet between them and he happily obliged. Ahead of its release, they premiered it during a performance at the historic Roman Auditorium on May 11.
“It might be in a bottle, a little proof from the past/It might be at the bottom of an empty glass/Don’t know if the whiskey can fix it or not/But, baby, it’s worth a shot,” they sing in the chorus.
This is the second project that King and Bentley have worked together on. In 2016, they recorded “Different for Girls,” which went on to become a No. 1 hit and this year, they were co-hosts for the annual CMA Fest.
