She gave more details on how she was trying to have kids in 2018, revealing she was freezing her eggs. She shared on The Doctors, “Doing an ovarian reserve is important to me because I’m fortunate enough to have that as an option, but I need to be aggressive about protecting my fertility, about protecting myself.”
Additionally, she explained that her endometriosis symptoms had gotten worse while she was on tour. “When I started touring and playing concerts and traveling, the stress and strain on my body really started to enhance the symptoms and make the experience a little bit worse,” recalled the star, whose real name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane.
In the weeks since revealing her pregnancy news, she’s continued to be open about her experiences, like how her growing baby bump has affected the way she views her body.
“I’ve been thinking lots about my body. it’s strange to watch yourself change so quickly,” Halsey wrote on Feb. 18. “I thought pregnancy would give me very strong, binary feelings about ‘womanhood’ but truly it has leveled my perception of gender entirely.”
The Manic singer also paid tribute to “the scars that got me this angel” by posting raw photos of her pelvic scars from her endometriosis surgery. She has called it “a miracle” that she can conceive.
