While this will be Halsey’s first child, it is not her first pregnancy. She told The Guardian in an interview that her song “More” is about a previous miscarriage she went through. “It’s the most inadequate I’ve ever felt,” she explains. “Here I am achieving this out-of-control life, and I can’t do the one thing I’m biologically put on this earth to do. Then I have to go onstage and be this sex symbol of femininity and empowerment? It is demoralising.”
