American pop singer, Halsey, took to Instagram and talked about the changes that are happening to her body after giving birth to baby boy.
The 27-year-old shared series of photos on Instagram of her postpartum body and wrote alongside, "I am posting this because no matter what I do people are going to talk about my body. It is confusing symptom of being in the public eye so rather than complain, I am going to give you something real to talk about!”
She went on, “I did SNL two nights ago and a lot of people were quick to say how good I looked. That was a weird feeling. My body has felt like a stranger's for a long time. I uphold myself to honesty to the point of over sharing sometimes but this feels important."
The Without Me singer added, "A lot of people don't know that you still look pregnant for a while after. It is still changing, and I am letting it. I have no interest in working out right now.”
Halsey added further, “I'm too tired and too busy playing with my darling son. With that being said, the body behind all those compliments the other night was wearing a custom-tailored outfit and lighted perfectly after much testing, so I could feel good and do my job.”
The songwriter asserted, "I do not want to feed the illusion that you're meant to feel and look ‘great' immediately postpartum. That is not my narrative currently. If you've been following me because you're also a parent and you dig what I'm doing, please know I'm in your corner."
"I will never have my ‘pre baby body back' no matter how it changes physically because I have now had a baby! And that has altered me forever; emotionally, spiritually, and physically. That change is permanent. And I don't want to go back,” she stated.
Halsey concluded, "In the spirit of honesty, I'm really tired and not a superhuman and this is really hard. Doing my best to serve my art and my family whilst keeping it all so very real. Love.”
