‘It Was Really Scary And Really Bad’

KEY POINTS

  • Pink said she thought it was over for her and her son, Jameson, when they contracted COVID-19
  • The singer asked her best friend to tell her daughter, Willow Sage, how much she loved her
  • Pink also pondered on her legacy to her children and what they learned from her at the time

Pink recounted the time she tested positive for COVID-19 and how it moved her to update her will.

Both Pink and her son, Jameson, tested positive for coronavirus last year. Meanwhile, her husband, Carey Hart, and their daughter, Willow Sage, were spared. According to the “Just Give Me a Reason” singer, she updated her will at the time because she “thought it was over for us.”

“It was really, really bad, and I rewrote my will,” Pink told Mark Wright on his Heart Radio show in a clip shared by ExtraTV on YouTube.

“I called my best friend and I said, ‘I just need you to tell Willow how much I love her,” the celebrity mom of two said. “It was really really scary and really bad.”

When she was still battling the virus, she asked herself several questions and was weighing how she could possibly make an impact on her children.

“As a parent, you think, ‘What am I leaving for my kid? What am I teaching them? Are they going to make it in this world?'” she continued. “And what do I need to tell them if this is the last time I get to tell them anything?'”

Last year, Pink penned an essay for NBC News ahead of Mother’s Day. In it, she reflected on her own experience with the coronavirus.

“Battling COVID-19 along with my 3-year-old son was the most physically and emotionally challenging experience I have gone through as a mother,” she wrote. “Weeks after receiving our test results, my son was still ill and feverish. It was a terrifying time, not knowing what might come next.”

The singer was grateful that she had access to resources to help with her recovery. She also encouraged other moms to think about all the mothers around the world and make sure that everyone has the same opportunities and access to important resources.

“This Mother’s Day, as you hold your babies tight, I encourage you to think about all the mamas around the world who still need our help. Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power said it best: this won’t end for anyone, until it ends for everyone. I know you would do anything to protect your own child, so let’s make sure every mama has the same opportunity and resources to protect theirs,” she wrote.
