It turns out that, the singer’s love for Elvis had a significant influence while selecting the name. During an interview with Country Countdown USA, the Take a Little Ride singer spoke about the matter saying,
“I’ve kinda been infatuated with Elvis since I was a kid, just always watching documentaries and stuff on him. It had a little bit to do with that and, honestly, I just wanted him to have something that wasn’t very common.”

During an appearance in the Babes and Babies podcast the proud mother of two explained what she had to go through to have her son,
“It was the longest process. It was such a roller coaster and I ended up, through it all, having endometriosis. After a year and a half of trying, they’re finally like, ‘We think you might have endometriosis. I’m like, ‘Uh … after all that, are you kidding me?”
Hence, the doctor performed some operations to remove her endometriosis, and finally, after much struggle, the duo welcomed Memphis on December 1 with the help of In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
