Thoughts on Her Current Body
Halsey admitted in the caption, with regards to her recent pregnancy how it is often portrayed that with workout and diet you can get your pre-pregnancy body back. She commented on this saying that she knows no matter what she does, she will never have her pre-pregnancy body back. Giving birth to a child, to a little person is a permanent and huge change. She also opened up saying that no one admits this but even after giving birth you still look pregnant for a while. She shared pictures of her belly right after giving birth to ‘break the chain of illusions about postpartum bodies’
