Hitmaker ‘Without Me’, who announced last month that she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Alev Aydin, shared how her feelings about her body and gender have changed so far.
She wrote on Instagram: “February is the shortest month, but the days seem to be very long.
“Butttttt goes that fast too ?! I’ve thought a lot about my body. It’s strange to see you change so quickly.
“I thought pregnancy gave me very strong, binary feelings about femininity, but it really flattened my perception of gender.
“My sensitivity to my body made me very aware of my humanity and that’s all. Do a remarkable thing. And it’s great.
“I hope the feeling lasts. I cook a lot, sleep even more, and read a lot of books. I miss my family. And you too! (sic) ”
Last month, Halsey, 26, described her upcoming arrival as her “rainbow baby.” This term is often used to describe a baby who arrives after a miscarriage or stillbirth.
Singer ‘You Should Be Sad’, who was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2016, was previously open about her experience with pregnancy loss as she said she miscarried once during a concert.
She said in 2018, “I was on tour and found out I was pregnant. Before I could really figure out what that meant to me and what it meant for my future … the next thing I knew was that I had a miscarriage in the middle of my concert on stage.
“The feeling of looking a few hundred teenagers in the face while you’re bleeding through your clothes and still having to do the show, and in that moment you realize … I never want to make the choice of doing what I love or do again will not be able to because of this disease.
“So I put my foot down and got very aggressive looking for treatment. I had an operation about a year ago and I feel a lot better.”
