Let's take a closer look at this stunning photo of Elvis and his mother. Those who knew Gladys and Elvis all agreed the two were more intimate than your average mother and son. In his book, From Elvis In Memphis, Wolfson claimed their relationship was "sweet to the point of sickly.”

Elvis and his mother had a very tight bond and even had their own secret language with many pet names for each other and the things they both loved. It was challenging for anyone else to understand them, even Elvis's father often felt left out of their unbreakable bond. According to one of Elvis's love interests, he talked to Gladys in baby talk, even as an adult.
