Singer Pink posted a photo to Instagram Saturday with just the simple message “Surprise!”. As you can see it features her in a flowing white dress and layered wrap which she’s gathered around her pregnant stomach. Her daughter Willow, six, is dressed in a matching little dress and is hugging her mom’s stomach. It’s sweet. Pink is giving me Charlize Theron vibes here, I think it’s the hair. She’s also wearing a top hat (which would be a cool accessory except I’m currently reading Stephen King’s Dr. Sleep and the villain is a woman in a top hat). Pink hasn’t announced how far along she is, but I’m guessing she’s five or six months at least.
This will be Pink’s second child with her husband of ten years, Carey Hart. The two separated in 2008 but reunited in 2010 and have been together with some breaks. Back in May Pink told Ellen that they were due for another separation and that “We take breaks. We’ve had two breaks. The first one was about a year. And the second one was 11 months.” A lot of couples are like that and at least Pink is honest about it. Hopefully things are working out well for them now.
People Magazine has some quotes from Pink, 37, about being a mom and how it’s healing to watch a baby grow up. I don’t remember these quotes, she made them last year, but they really resonated with me. She said “I have lived a lot of life in a very short time, and you get hardened a little bit — you get jaded, you build up walls. And when you see this little kid, and you get to watch them through infancy to toddler to little person, it’s amazing.
“You see how you were. When you watch this bundle full of love and light that’s untarnished and untainted by heartache and any of the numerous things that change you, it’s very healing. It’s a miracle.”
That was very well put. Congratulations to Pink and Carey on their upcoming arrival!
