Pink Posts a Personal Pregnancy Portrait

02/07/2011 at 08:00 AM ET

Aside from mom-to-be, Pink has taken on another new role: photographer.

Unhappy with the recent paparazzi shots that have surfaced of her burgeoning belly, Pink took to Twitter to share her own photo.

“ALRIGHT… because paparazzi of today have absolutely no photographic skill or artistry whatsoever, and their pictures are hideous I’m going to post a self-portrait I took yesterday morning for all of you asking to see belly shots,” the musician, 31, wrote.

Pink, who’s expecting her first child with husband Carey Hart, seems quite pleased with the black and white photo of herself caressing her growing belly.

“3 wks of photo classes for me. and I am already a far better photographer than any one of them,” she added.

Congrats on your pregnancy…I wish I had took pics of my growing belly when I was pregnant,but I was to shy.Now I don’t have anything to show to my kids what I looked like when I was pregnant with them.

What a beautiful pic. I love this pic!!!

Kimkow on

What a beautiful picture…I am very happy for Pink and her husband Carey. I have upmost respect for any couple that has issues in their marriage but work together to stick it out and make it work…that is real love. It is rare anywhere these days but a famous couple, it is almost unheard of. I wish them all the best and a lifetime of joy.

mouse7701 on

I think Pink is amazing. The photo is perfect–& I love the little plaques in the background–especially the one that says Women who behave never make history πŸ˜‰

Shannon on

Nothing against her but that is an awkward shot. Hire a professional!

Anonymous on

No kidding. I always felt so beautiful when I was preggers, but somehow the pics everyone else took never quite “captured my incredible pregnant beauty”. So I took belly shots myself all throughout my last pregnancy. So glad I did. I may not be one, but I looked like a rock star. You get it on both counts. You’re beautiful.

Susan Lewis on

Good shot! God Bless! Anybody know when she is due?


From your former babysitter in Doylestown, I wish you all the best! You are going to be the best mom in the world. So proud of who you are and who you have become from that self righteous crazy pre-teen that I used to know! God bless you and your family!

moo on

so her statement that she is a better photographer than the paparazzi is idiotic.

she’s standing for a posed portrait in a calm environment whereas paparazzi have moving subjects and have to take photos amidst the jostle of other paparazzi. i’m sure their jobs are much more difficult.

lucy on

Best wishes!

Yo on

I hate what she stands for. Really. Look at her music. It’s about parties, fights, and being drunk… But it’s an original pregnancy photo. I’ll give her that.

Totally Awesome

RMK on

That is a *really* beautiful picture, congratulations on your new baby!

Sat on

Well played πŸ˜‰

ellie on

so much for personal.

angie on

Congrats Pink…

Jill K on

I think it’s cool that she shared this picture with all of us to see! We can see professional pictures of her anytime. It’s nice to see a non-professional, non-paparazzi picture. It shows she’s down to earth:)
Congrats to the both of them!!

Ruth on

How beautiful. Welcome to the most magical, incredible, introspective time in your life. Each child brings his/her own element of wonder but it is different with the first, having no idea what its all about. Even on your child’s worst day(s), remember the love and wonder you feel now and end each day with gratitude.

paula on

love her, love the pic!! so happy for her & Carey. wish them all the health & happiness life has to offer.

Jessica on

love the pic P!nk….i had taken a couple of pics of my pregnant belly when i was pregnant with my first….and i agree that the picture is better than any paparazzi could have taken. rock on P!nk and good luck with the baby

angie on

She does not have the body type to have a baby…. good luck with the baby weight….

Sherry on

By far, better !

Kellie on

Angie- What is that body type exactly?

sarah on

Beautiful pic. might be bizarre to mention but.. love the two little plate-things in the background “women who behave never make history” and “sing like nobody is listening” – sums pink up doesn’t it. Was listening to “So What” yesterday, great to see how far her and Carey have come!

laura on

angie-fuck off! your a jealous bitch πŸ™‚ get a life! CONGRATES pink!

elle on

wow, Pink, this is artistic! how about a side profile? πŸ™‚

maritan on

What a great photo. I love that what’s in the background is probably what a lot of non-celebrities have in their homes.

Karen on

Sweet baby belly πŸ™‚

Peg Deschamps on

You know, lots of people (women) get baby bumps; Pink knows that, as a celeb. she is subjected to photos, rumors, papparazzi, etc. So frankly…yawn.

Julie on

Congratulations Pink! The bump is gorgeous like you!

Wendy on

What a touching and tender photo. I had 3 sons in the early 80’s and I regret not taking pics of my belly each time.

Jill K on

Angie, seriously?! How rude was that!

Tee on

Yup, Angie’s comment was rude. But it’s comments like the one Laura made that really make me miss the old celebrity baby blog. That kind of language is unnecessary… and on a site about babies? Good grief! Bring back the moderators, please!

Debbie on

Beautiful Picture!

rachel on

i cant believe pink is pregnaunt i am so happy 4 her if u dont read this i understand pink its ok

Erika on

Angie- I didn’t know that only people with certain body types could look pregnant. Please tell us what makes her body unfit for pregnancy.

I like this picture. It is cool that it is off to the side, because the stuff in the background is pretty cool. She should try to get a similar shot when further along so she can compare the two.

jenn on

You are right pink that picture is way better then those money hungry paparazzi. I can’t wait to see your little one.

zappo on

this is a beautiful composition! real art!

Angela on

Congratulations!!! You are so beautiful and you are going to be a wonderful mommy!!!

Amanda on

Love it!!! Good job Pink!!!

acorr on

the photo is beautiful and I too would choose to take a pic in the morning as throughout the day you bloat and any photo would show that

Nic on

Perfect……. Love it! Enjoy every moment, it’s a lot of work once their here but worth all of it. You’re going to be a great mom, don’t worry. Best of Luck!

Cecelia on

Figures that only posters on this website would find a way to insult a personal maternity photo. Get a life.

Stef on

What a beautiful picture, Pink! I love how it’s candid and not a “staged” portrait. The items in the background only enhance the picture. My kids are grown now…I wish I’d had the foresight to do this when I was pregnant with any of them, but that was in the days before cell phones and digital cameras. Congratulations and best wishes for a healthy and happy baby!

Stella Bella on

Beautiful photo. πŸ™‚

CelebBabyLover on

mouse7701- I love the things in the background, too! In fact, my mother actually used to have a T-shirt that said something similar to the one about women behaving never making history. The shirt said: “Well-behaved women seldom make history”! Anyway, I love that Pink share this photo!


One of the most natural tender ‘belly’ picture of a celebrity. Love it !
Love the ‘Belgium’ mock too, I think it is a reminder of her concert at Rock Werchter this summer.

Alyssa on

She went into the business knowing this is how celebs are treated. To complain about it now only makes me yawn. Celebs depend on the paparazzi…if they weren’t covered, they would become obsolete. The photo is average at best, the coffee cup gets more attention. She has a great amount of natural light coming through the window, yet she didn’t take advantage of it. I’d give her a C+ if she were in my beginning B&W photo class.

heather on

pink is so beautifulβ™₯

Precious1026 on

It’s nice to be so loved. I am trying to grasp the love everyone has for a naked pregnant women. I was never bestowed the gift of motherhood, nope never disappointed. I just feel that a pregnant women is most beautiful covered. Her nakedness is for her and her husband. What is the joy or pleasure in showing strangers your naked belly. It seems more like conceit than having anything to do with the joys of motherhood.

lisa on

Adorable, God bless!

jite on

Pink love you so so so much and much more, your baby bump. Know ya gonna make a terrific mum, congrats!!!!!!

Tracey on


Always find a way to get the upper hand! Dammn the papparazzi for invading your personal life but kuddos to you for knocking them outta the park with that beautiful black & white self-portrait. So happy for you & Carey.

Believe it or not, I’m almost 50, and your music is all over my iPod which my daughter goes thru and steals. Now Pink is her fav. too. Stay Fresh * true to yourself – I wish you nothing but great health & much success, whether you’re showing off your belly or not!

serena on

I absolutely love pink, she is a brave hearted woman and she is my role model. we have gone threw the same shit and its brilliant she can look back and say “fuck that, im living my life” she is a recovering addict and a mommy to be!!!! i am so proud of her. if i were to meet her in person i would probably just ask about her and laugh. I cant wait for the nine month shots and the newborn pics. She is going to be so beautiful pink.

Antonella on

god bless you :)i love your you are the best singer
