Celebrity Mom, Pink Opens Up About Having Multiple Miscarriages Since She Was A Teen

American singer and songwriter, Alecia Beth Moore, 39, known professionally as Pink, is opening up about her secret heartache of having “several miscarriages” when she was only a teenager.

While addressing lyrics on her album Hurts 2B Human, the award-winning star said she was prepared to have the child after falling pregnant as a teenager. But she lost the baby and has lost “several” other pregnancies since then.

Pink, who is now a mother to two adorable children said she felt like her body was “broken” and “hated her” because it failed to give her a child. Pink told USA Today Opens a New Window:

“The reason I said [those lyrics] is because I’ve always had this very tomboy, very strong gymnast body, but actually at 17 I had a miscarriage.

And I was going to have that child. But when that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do.

I’ve had several miscarriages since, so I think it’s important to talk about what you’re ashamed of, who you really are and the painful (expletive). I’ve always written that way.”

When asked about her song, “Happy,” and its lyrics, Pink told the publication:

“Since I was 17, I’ve always hated my body / and it feels like my body’s hated me. The reason I said [that] is because I’ve always had this very tomboy, very strong gymnast body, but actually at 17 I had a miscarriage. And I was going to have that child.

But when that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do.”

When she was 22, around the time she released her hit 2001 album Missundaztood, Pink sought out a therapist, whom she has been seeing ever since. Pink explained:

“I believe in self-confrontation and just getting things out. What I love about therapy is that they’ll tell you what your blind spots are. Although that’s uncomfortable and painful, it gives you something to work with.

I think the reason I can go to such uncomfortable places and be so honest is because I have a really healthy sense of humor. I’m extremely self-deprecating, and when (expletive) goes bad — which in any life is inevitable — you’ve just got to find the funny. It’s because I can laugh that I can cry so hard.”
