The Grammy-nominated rocker revealed the news of her pregnancy in an interview with People on Wednesday (March 3). She previously suffered two pregnancy losses due to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal disorder that commonly causes fertility issues.

"This is something that I have not only wanted since I could remember, but it's something that I have struggled with for a really long time. Every single day of this pregnancy is such a miracle," the 31-year-old singer shared while discussing her previous miscarriages."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. 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 sh--." headtopics.com

Artist MentionedElle KingKing continued,"I've experienced loss and to go through that pain of losing two pregnancies, it just feels like life is over, life is done. You have to go through this intense and really just unbelievably draining and shocking grieving period. You feel like such a failure. Then when [you get pregnant again], you're so afraid to enjoy it and be happy because you're so scared that it's going to be taken away. Just because I'm having a pregnancy that's going well now it doesn't mean that I'm over losing any pregnancy."

But as a public figure with a platform, King believes that she can share any and all parts of her life.

"I'm just like, 'What if this comes out and something happens to the baby?' Then it's like I have egg on my face," she said."But it's like, why is there shame around that? Why can't you celebrate the beginning of life in this stage? I just have the opportunity to share parts of my life with people out there. Whatever my platform is, I know that I have one. If you're going to share your f---ing life, share f---ing all of it."
