Pregnancy seems to be a rollercoaster for Grimes but the process has caused her to do some self-reflection.
The “Delete Forever” artist shared a cute throwback picture from the start of her pregnancy journey on Wednesday. Grimes, real name Claire Elise Boucher, admitted that she was too skinny before her body started going through changes. The 7-month-old photo featured the tiny singer with fiery red hair as she wore a short black dress, matching tights, and chic heeled boots. Elon Musk‘s beau looked back and laughed when she remembered her initial thoughts about the photoshoot.
“It’s weird I thought I looked soooo pregnant when @ryder_ripps took these photos like 7 ish months ago but in retrospect I look tiny lol. Everything is relative I guess,” Grimes wrote in the caption of her post.
The star came to the conclusion that she may not have been at her ideal weight before she got pregnant.
“I wuz prob 2 skinny b4,” she stated. “This is the first time in my life I’ve eaten 3 meals a day and that has def been a positive development lol. If u aren’t doing so I’d recommend it! ??⚔️”
She has been extremely open about her emotions and thoughts while sharing her journey with her millions of fans. Part of that means examining her body as well as her mind. Yesterday, she detailed how she came to appreciate and love her physical features.
“ppl make fun of my big nose and weird face but I think it’s cool to be strange,” she confessed on social media. “Took me a while to figure out how to make makeup look good cuz regular tricks don’t work. But I’m grateful to be oddly designed.”
Earlier this month, the singer shared a cute progress pic and called herself a “chubby fairy.” She looked ready to pop in her snug, long-sleeve striped shirt and her and long locks draped down over her huge bump.
“Being knocked up is a very feral & war-like state of being,” she said at the time.
“Might as well be what it is,” she continued. “Plus most of my friends told me not to post them so then I was afflicted w reverse psychology. Interrogated my shame on it and decided it was sum weird internalized self hatred to feel uncomfortable abt my body. Hope ur having a nice day! ???♀️?”
However, the warrior mother admitted that she was not well-prepared.
In February, Grimes revealed that she really struggled with the third trimester of her pregnancy. She reached out to fans to get a little advice and support at the time.
“Wow I’m starting to feel bad haha… how do y’all cope with working and having a baby??” she said at the time.
“I feel like I was woefully ill prepared cuz I dunno if pregnancy is as visible or discussed as it should be. I just didn’t rly understand what I was getting into,” Grimes said.
You are in the home stretch now, Grimes! You got this!
