“I thought there would be a lot of expectation or pressure on me to wake up everyday feeling like some ‘girly-girly fertility goddess.'”
And now she’s sharing how being pregnant has impacted her views on gender!
In a current Instagram put up, the 26-year-old wrote, “I’ve been thinking lots about my body. It’s strange to watch yourself change so quickly. I thought pregnancy would give me very strong, binary feelings about ‘womanhood,’ but truly it has 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.”
Then, within the feedback, she continued, “I thought there would be a lot of expectation or pressure on me to wake up everyday feeling like some ‘girly-girly fertility goddess,’ but instead I wake up and eat when I’m hungry, sleep when I’m tired, and focus on growing a human. And that is all I expect myself to do. Liberating!”
Naturally, the feedback part was crammed with love. Katy Perry counseled Halsey, reminding her that she’s “about to perform a real miracle.”
And singer Gracie Abrams referred to as Halsey “an angel.”
Thank you for sharing your expertise, Halsey! All one of the best to you and the little bun within the oven!
