Pop singer Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, gave birth to her first baby girl. Pink and her husband Carey Hart welcomed the baby, who was named Willow Sage Hart, in a Los Angeles Hospital on Thursday.
“We are ecstatic to welcome our new beautiful healthy happy baby girl, Willow Sage Hart. She’s gorgeous, just like her daddy [motocross racer Carey Hart], Pink wrote in her Twitter page.
Twitter seems to be a very important part of Pink’s life, so important, that she is using it to broadcast some of the most meaningful events in her life. The social network shows its power in relation to broadcasting real-time news, when it comes to sharing the twitter feed, but for the media it took a while to pick up on the news -- the first reports started to appear six hours ago, one hour after the original Pink tweet.
The rock star gave birth by cesarean on Thursday at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, RadarOnline reported. On Wednesday, the 31-year-old Pink tweeted a cryptic message, New Moon in Gemini today :) a good time to start something new.... Also called the Honey Moon.
In June 2005 during a Mammoth Lakes motocross race, the Who Knew singer, Pink proposed to Hart by holding up a sign Will you marry me? on his pit board, according to MTV Networks. They married in Costa Rica on January 7, 2006.
Pink announced in February 2008 that she and Hart had separated, but began dating again and went to marriage counseling, which led to a reconciliation. In February 2010, Pink confirmed that she and Hart were back together, and in November she said they are expecting their first child.
After rumors about her pregnancy surfaced in the fall, Pink confirmed the news in The Ellen DeGeneres show and explained that she and Hart hadn't responded to the speculation in the week since the rumors first emerged as she had suffered a miscarriage in the past, MTV Networks reported.
Pink, who was born on September 8, 1979 in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, has named Madonna and Janis Joplin as two of her biggest musical influences, according to Los Angeles Times. Her stage name Pink was coined as a tribute to the character Mr. Pink from the film Reservoir Dogs, according to Sydney Morning Herald.
According to Billboard, Pink was rated #13 on the list of Artists of the Decade and #1 Pop Song Artist of the Decade (2000–2009). Forbes Magazine in 2010 named Pink the 27th most powerful celebrity, with $44 million earned between June 2009 and June 2010. She was listed among CEOWORLD magazine's Top Accomplished Women Entertainers.
