Halsey shares unfiltered photos of postpartum figure… as they embrace the fact they’ll never have their ‘pre-baby body back’


Halsey is okay knowing they’ll never have their ‘pre baby body back.’ 

The I Am Not A Woman, I’m A God singer, 27, offered a look at their postpartum journey while sharing a series of unfiltered photos of their body on Instagram Monday.

The star – who identifies as non-binary and uses she/her and they/them pronouns interchangeably – wrote a lengthy caption which began: ‘I am posting this because no matter what I do people are going to talk about my body.’

‘It is confusing symptom of being in the public eye so rather than complain I am going to give you something real to talk about!’

The photos showed the star in the months since welcoming son Ender in July, revealing a slowly fading tummy along with proud close-ups of stretch marks.

‘I did SNL two nights ago and a lot of people were quick to say how good I looked. That was a weird feeling.

‘I uphold myself to honesty to the point of over sharing 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. 

‘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. 

Not going back! '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!'

‘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. 

‘If you’ve been following me because you’re also a parent and you dig what I’m doing, please know I’m in your corner. 

‘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. Love.’
