Halsey recently gave birth to her first child and has been showing off her post-baby body over on the gram. But this week Halsey was feeling nostalgic and missing her pregnancy body. The singer shared a few throw back snaps revealing just how big her baby bump got over the last 9 months and spoke a bit about how she's feeling now post-pregnancy.
"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 first picture on this slide is days after my baby was already born. 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. I’m too tired and too busy playing with my darling son."
Halsey recently took the stage on Saturday Night Live where she performed her new song I am Not a Woman, I'm a God off her new album which was produced by none other than Trent Reznor. The singer wore a skin tight black bodysuit which had everyone talking about how great she looked post-baby.
"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. 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! But 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."
