Elvis wanted a baby boy, former fiancée Ginger Alden claims

Did The King long for a baby boy?

That’s what Elvis Presley’s former fiancée, Ginger Alden, is claiming. Alden, who was engaged to Elvis at the time of his death, told Closer Weekly the couple was planning the “wedding of the century,” and they were serious about their future together.

“Things were moving forward in a positive way for both of us,” Alden told Closer. “Hours before he passed away, we had set a wedding date. He was letting me know he was looking forward to this.”

And the pair wanted a baby, she claims. “He wanted a son — we both wanted that.”

Alden is adamant that the stories about Elvis from the last few months of his life—before he died in 1977—are an inaccurate portrayal of the man she knew.

“There’s been an unjust portrayal of Elvis — of a man sitting up in his room, talking about his mother all the time, and depressed,” Ginger tells Closer of the star, who died of a cardiac arrhythmia on Aug. 16, 1977. “The Elvis I came to know and love was not that way in the last nine months of his life.”
