Is it teething time for your little one?
Ashamed: Pink reveals that she suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage at 17

Pink has gotten candid about the tragic miscarriage she suffered when she was just a teenager. 

The singer spoke to USA Today about the loss when she divulged that the inspiration behind some of her newest songs comes from her battles with anxiety and self-image. 

The 39-year-old revealed that the song, Happy, came from something personal that happened to her.

She said, ''Since I was 17, I’ve always hated my body / and it feels like my body’s hated me” were written about a miscarriage she suffered as a teen.

She revealed, ''The reason I said [that] is because I’ve always had this very tomboy, very strong gymnast body, but actually at 17 I had a miscarriage. And I was going to have that child.''

She continued, ''But when that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do.''

Pink went on to have a number of miscarriages and has poured the painful emotions into her songwriting.

She said, ''I think it’s important to talk about what you’re ashamed of, who you really are and the painful sh*t. I’ve always written that way.”

It has been therapy that has helped Pink to be so open in her music as it helps her to identify ''blind spots.''

She said, ''I believe in self-confrontation and just getting things out. What I love about therapy is that they’ll tell you what your blind spots are.''

She added, ''Although that’s uncomfortable and painful, it gives you something to work with.''

Pink is now mum to two gorgeous kids with her husband Carey Hart - seven-year-old Willow and two-year-old Jameson

We applaud her bravery in opening up about such a traumatic time in her life and we hope it helps other women who have also suffered miscarriages to feel less alone.
