Halsey opened up about her plans to become a mother in an interview with Rolling Stone.
Halsey has had some great news about her fertility following an an agonising battle with endometriosis. The 'Nightmare' singer has been extremely honest about her condition, which has caused her chronic pain. She has also donated and raised over $300,000 for endometriosis research and support.
Endometriosis is when tissue similar to the lining of the womb starts to grow in other places, like the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Endometriosis can have a significant impact on a woman's day-to-day activities and, according to the NHS, can cause difficulty getting pregnant. Research from Endometriosis UK suggests that the condition affects 10% of women world wide.
Halsey has always thought she would struggle to have children because of the condition and had plans to freeze her eggs this summer. She has also previously spoken about how endometriosis could have caused her three miscarriages and it's possible it could have stopped her from ever carrying a child full term.
Thankfully, Halsey (who has previously admitted to having had four surgeries for endometriosis) revealed that following surgery and some lifestyle changes her health has drastically improved and she no longer dreads her periods, that have hospitalised her in the past.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Halsey said that her doctor has advised that she doesn't even need to freeze her eggs when she wants to conceive.
"I was like, 'Wait, what did you just say? Did you just say I can have kids?' It was like the reverse of finding out you have a terminal illness," she explained. "I called my mom, crying."
Halsey, who is currently dating musician YUNGBLUD, has previously said in a since-deleted Instagram post she's "dying" to have her own baby after spending some time with her manager's adorable daughter. In the interview, she then joked with her assistant Maria that they had a "pregnancy pact" which means they have to get pregnant together.
She continued: "Never mind. I don't need to put out a third album. I'm just going to have a baby."
Halsey's third album is reportedly coming this year. She confirmed on Twitter in March that she would like to drop the album in 2019.
