“I love you!!!!! And I love this mini human already!” Halsey replied.
Halsey previously suffered a miscarriage and spoke about it during an interview with The Guardian.
“It’s the most inadequate I’ve ever felt,” she said of the miscarriage.
“Here I am achieving this out-of-control life, and I can’t do the one thing I’m biologically put on this earth to do,” Halsey told the outlet. “Then I have to go onstage and be this sex symbol of femininity and empowerment? It is demoralizing.”
Halsey wrote the song “More” about her struggles with her reproductive health.
“I’ve been really open about my struggles with reproductive health, about wanting to freeze my eggs and having endometriosis and things like that,” Halsey wrote in the notes for her album “Manic.” “For a long time, I didn’t think that having a family was something I was going to be able to do, and it’s very, very important to me.”
“Then one day my OB-GYN tells me it’s looking like I maybe can, and I was so moved. It felt like this ascension into a different kind of womanhood,” Halsey added. “All of a sudden, everything is different.”
