There’s a new addition to Pink‘s family — but it’s not what you think!

On Tuesday, the 39-year-old mom of two shared a photo of a new motorcycle that her husband Carey Hart built for her. (Hart, 43, is a former motorcycle racer and professional freestyle motocross competitor.)

In the image, Pink rocks a black jumpsuit and leans against the copper-colored bike.

“My ❤️ won’t give me another baby, so he built me one. She rips,” the musician joked, tagging her husband. Hart and Pink are proud parents to daughter Willow Sage, 7, and son Jameson Moon, 2.

Pink also asked her fans for help naming the new bike, writing the hashtag “#whatshouldwenameher.”

Son Jameson already appears to be taking after his daredevil parents.

In February, Hart shared a video of his youngest child as the tiny tot took his first ride on an electric-powered balance bike.

“Jamo blows me away!!!!” Hart captioned the clip. “Today at the shop I broke out his @ridestacyc electric bike. Literally his first go he made it the length of my shop! I was a little nervous about the throttle, but he picked it up instantly.”

“Not bad for 2 years old,” he added, joking, “Gonna have my hands full lol.”

The photo of her new motorcycle comes just days after Pink said she would no longer post photos of her two kids on Instagram.

It was a decision she came to after critics slammed her last month for sharing a photo of her kids interacting with a pelican, one that was snapped after Jameson had taken off his wet swim diaper. Though Pink had scribbled out her boy’s nude bottom half on the picture, trolls still went after her — putting her on the defensive. And despite a well-pointed rebuttal, the entire event inspired Pink to make a change.

“People went as far as saying someone should call child services because he didn’t have a diaper on and how dare I … some of the nastiest things,” Pink recalled on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I cried so hard after that because I like to share my family. It’s my proudest moment. I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve done in my whole life.”

“I just won’t share them anymore,” she said. “I won’t do it. I’m not posting pictures of them anymore.”

Pink went on to explain that she didn’t even see the picture the way her critics had.

“I looked at it like, there was a pelican that flew into our room. It spent two hours with us … it was this incredible experience for my family,” Pink said. “And I have a 2-year-old [who] doesn’t like to wear wet swim diapers and at some point, he took it off. I don’t think like that! We’re a family. We live on a farm. My kids are naked, it’s what happens!”

She also clarified that she’s not against constructive criticism. “I understand people saying, ‘You need to be more careful because you are in the public eye and you should have thought of that.’ And they’re right. But there’s a nicer way to say that,” she told DeGeneres.

“There’s a kind way to be online. And I’m open to kindness,” Pink said. “Someone else taught me that the word ‘gypsy’ is derogatory and I’m not a person who uses derogatory language. I wrote back to them, ‘Thank you so much for being so kind and educating me. I’m editing it, I’m taking it down, and that word will never come out of my mouth again.’ There’s a way to do things!”

Ultimately, Pink admitted to DeGeneres that the decision to stop sharing photos of her kids on social media was coming at “a good time,” especially for Willow.

“She’s 7 now,” Pink said. “It’s probably time to pull her back from the world and let her live her best life.”
