Halsey Reflects On The Changes In Her Body During Pregnancy
A month after sharing the exciting news that she was pregnant, Halsey recently reflected on the major change in her life.
In an Instagram post over the weekend, the “Bad At Love” singer shared a carousel of photos, including some yummy food and a swimsuit baby pump photo.
“February is the shortest month but the days seem like they are taking very long,” Halsey, who’s real name is Ashley Frangipane, captioned the post. “Butttttt also going so fast?! I’ve been thinking lots about my body. It’s strong to watch yourself change so quickly. I thought pregnancy would give me very strong, binary feelings about ‘womanhood’ but truly is had leveled my perception of gender entirely.”
“My sensitivity to my body has made me hyper aware of my humanness and that’s all. Doing a remarkable thing. And it’s grand. I hope the feeling lasts. I cook a lot, sleep even more and read lotssss of books. I miss my family. And you guys too! 🧚🏼♂️bye for now,” she continued.
“You’re about to perform a real miracle, get that rest and just be! I love you,” commented new mom Katy Perry.
Halsey has been honest with her struggles with mental and reproductive health in the past. In a 2016 Rolling Stone interview, she revealed that she was pregnant the year before and suffered a miscarriage minutes before she was supposed to perform. She still went ahead and did the show.
“It’s the angriest performance that I’ve ever done in my life,” she said in the interview. “That was the moment of my life where I thought to myself, ‘I don’t feel like a f–ing human being anymore. This thing, this music, Halsey, whatever it is that I’m doing, took precedence and priority over every decision that I made regarding this entire situation from the moment I found out until the moment it went wrong. I walked offstage and went into the parking lot and just started throwing up.”
She added that she “beat myself up” over the miscarriage. At that time, Halsey wanted “to be a mom more than I want to be a pop star, more than I want to be anything in the world.”
