The ‘Without Me’ hitmaker, who revealed last month that she is expecting her first child with her boyfriend Alev Aydin, has opened up about how her feelings about her body and gender have been altered so far.
Alongside a series of pictures, including a photo of herself showing off her baby bump, she wrote on Instagram that she has been thinking a lot about her body and admitted it’s strange to watch herself change quickly.

“February is the shortest month, but the days seem like they are taking very long. Butttttt also going so fast?! I’ve been thinking lots about my body. It’s strange to watch yourself change so quickly,” she captioned the post.
“I thought pregnancy would give me very strong, binary feelings about ‘womanhood’, but truly it has levelled my perception of gender entirely. My sensitivity to my body has made me hyper-aware of my humanness, and that’s all. Doing a remarkable thing. And it’s grand. I hope the feeling lasts (sic).”

“I cook a lot, sleep even more, and read lotssss of books. I miss my family. And you guys too!” she adds.
Celebrities flooded the singer’s comment section with nothing but well wishes, one comment from new mom Katy Perry saying, “You’re about to perform a real miracle, get that rest and just be! I love you.”
Another from a rapper, Princess Nokia, says, “So happy for you,” and singer Odette adding, “It’s nice to hear another kind of narrative because genuinely the ‘embracing womanhood’ side of pregnancy really puts me off.”
