Halsey just shared a montage of intimate post-pregnancy pictures, along with an emotional message about the body permanently changing after you have children.
The ‘Without Me’ singer took to Instagram posting a set of photos that showed off her changing physique throughout the days following her pregnancy. Halsey included an explanation for how phenomenal she looked during this week’s ‘Saturday Night Live’ — admitting that she used a “custom-tailored outfit” and perfect lighting to highlight the performance.
Of course, she looks stunning 0n all accounts, but the singer wanted to be honest and open with her millions of fans about the joys and changes you go through during motherhood.
Halsey Reveals Intimate Post-Pregnancy Pictures
In the photos, Halsey included one immediately following the birth of her newborn — Ender — showing the ever-changing body during the process.
“I am posting this because no matter what I do people are going to talk about my body. It is a confusing symptom of being in the public eye so rather than complain I am going to give you something real to talk about! I did SNL two nights ago and a lot of people were quick to say how good I looked. That was a weird feeling. My body has felt like a stranger’s for a long time,” she began.

Halsey continued, “I uphold myself to honesty to the point of oversharing sometimes but this feels important. The first picture on this slide is days after my baby was already born. A lot of people don’t know that you still look pregnant for a while after. It is still changing and I am letting it. I have no interest in working out right now. I’m too tired and too busy playing with my darling son.”
The singer went on to explain her look at this week’s ‘SNL’ performance, even though most of the reactions were very positive.
“With that being said, 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. That is not my narrative currently,” she continued.

The best part, Halsey explained that even though celebrities are often discussed publicly for getting their pre-baby body back in a quick fashion — she explains it makes no sense.
“I will never have my “pre-baby body back” no matter how it changes physically because I have now had a baby! 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 explained.
