Halsey's Instagram bio. halsey/ instagram Halsey recently mused about "perception of gender" on social media in light of their pregnancy. "I've been thinking lots about my body. It's strange to watch yourself change so quickly," wrote the "Graveyard" singer. "I thought pregnancy would give me very strong, binary feelings about 'womanhood' but truly it has leveled my perception of gender entirely."

"Doing a remarkable thing. And it's grand." They then concluded, "I hope the feeling lasts. I cook a lot, sleep even more, and read lotssss of books. I miss my family. And you guys too! 🧚🏼♂️ bye for now." The musician — who opened up earlier this month about how they "tried very hard" for their baby on the way, who "was 100% planned" with Aydin — has been outspoken about their struggles with reproductive health. Back in 2016, they revealed during a Rolling Stone interview that they had become pregnant the year prior — just before their career launched — but suffered a miscarriage directly ahead of a show. The artist still went ahead with the performance.
