After struggling for years with various fertility issues, Halsey, whose pronouns are she/they, announced that they were pregnant with their first child in February of 2021. Because they had thought for so long that they would never be able to have kids, they were rightfully hurt when rumours started to circulate that their pregnancy had been an accident. They posted on their Instagram story a blank screen with the caption, "why is it ok to speculate and pass judgement about fertility and conception? My pregnancy was 100% planned, and I tried very hard for this bb. But I would be just as happy even if it were another way.” Recently, the singer told Allure that they've also struggled with keeping down their prenatal vitamins. "I was so angry with myself. You have one fucking job! One job! Take your prenatals! Your body’s doing everything else, you can’t even do that. I felt like such a failure." Luckily, they got the all-clear from their doctor that both they and their baby were perfectly healthy without the vitamins.
