Pink is reflecting on her coronavirus battle.
Ahead of Mother’s Day, the 40-year-old entertainer wrote an essay for NBC News where she talked about the current health crisis and what it means for mothers around the world.
“Mother’s Day is this weekend and I have been reflecting on the wonderful, yet challenging gift of time that life in COVID-19 quarantine has meant for me and my children,” Pink begins. “To be a mom, a teacher, a cook, a confidant, and a badass dream chaser all at once is no small feat. Mamas everywhere, you are doing amazing.”
Back in early April, Pink revealed that she and son Jameson, 3, were both battling the virus and have luckily recovered.
“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,” Pink writes. “Weeks after receiving our test results, my son was still ill and feverish. It was a terrifying time, not knowing what might come next.”
Pink adds: “But our story is not unique; there are mothers all over America, and the world, that are facing this same uncertainty every single day. Not every family, especially those living on reservations, or in refugee camps, slums, or favelas, are able to practice social distancing. In many parts of the world it can take hours just to access water, and even then, soap may be an impossible luxury.”
