It’s kind of sad that a married celebrity couple who have survived for over a decade is such a cause for celebration, but singer Pink and her motocross riding hubby Carey Hart have made it work for 11 years. Their union has suffered a few bumps in the road, but they have persevered.
Back in January, the 37-year-old singer posted a throwback pic sharing a smooch with her 41-year-old spouse to celebrate their 11th wedding anniversary. In the caption, she declared, “I’m very lucky to be able to say that you’re mine” and thanked Carey for “sticking around.”
The key to a happy marriage, according to Pink, is taking breaks, or so she told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview last year. Pink detailed the couple’s two breaks on the show, explaining, “The first one was about a year (in 2003, when they were dating). And the second one was 11 months.” The second, in 2008 was almost permanent, with the couple going so far as to draw up divorce papers. They managed to kiss and make up, and have brought two adorable kids into the world, 6-year-old daughter Willow and 5-month-old son Jameson. Carey recently gave Prink a new motorcycle as a “push present.” (Her words.)
This happy family spent their Memorial Day weekend on a camping trip. Pink posted a collage of shots on Instagram on Monday and it sure looked like a fun time was had by all.
And, if you ever wondered what Carey Hart looked like in a Speedo, wonder no more. Pink also posted a shot of her sweetie in his barely-there briefs with the caption, “Happy Memorial Day. ‘Merica.” You’re welcome, by the way.
The singer’s relationship is the cover story of the latest issue of US Weekly, where a source close to the pair revealed that “They’ve been through a lot, but they are solid now. They love their life together.” The singer told the magazine that she’s loving life as a Mom, confessing, “I honestly can’t believe how responsible I am. All of a sudden I’m a soccer mom and doing the damn thing. No one would have guessed this for me. Honestly, I didn’t realize that you could enjoy it so much.” And she is just as committed to being a supportive parent as she is as a performer, but her enthusiasm may sometimes get the best of her. She recalled watching her daughter playing T-ball and said, “I was screaming my head off. I made my baby cry!” Of course, she did admit that “Embarrassing them is the fun part!”
As someone who has walked down the aisle not once, but twice, I can attest that marriage is hard. I am a big fan of Pink’s and Carey Hart endeared himself to me on The Surreal Life (and the motorcycle “push present” was all kinds of awesome). I’m glad these two were able to work out their problems and stay together, even though they had to do the “break” thing.
