Singing sensation Halsey, who gave start to her first child in July this yr, took to social media just lately to share a candid word on her postpartum physique.
The 27-year-old shared a sequence of images to doc her postpartum journey — a few of which even uncovered her stretch marks — after being informed “how good I looked” at a current SNL gig.
“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 Manic singer wrote alongside the images on Instagram.
“The first picture on this slide is days after my baby was already born… I have no interest in working out right now. I’m too tired and too busy playing with my darling son,” she additional wrote.
Speaking concerning the much-appreciated SNL look, she added, “…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.”
Addressing new moms, she reminded them that they could by no means get their “pre-baby body back”. “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,” she expressed.
