Pink Reveals Meaning Behind Baby Willow's Name
"The willow is my favorite tree. I grew up near one. It's the most flexible tree in nature and nothing can break it - no wind, no elements," Pink told PEOPLE about the nature-inspired name for her little girl. "It can bend and withstand anything. I love that sentiment. I want that for her."
Her middle name also has a special meaning -- but Pink said it also just sounded cool.
"Sage is cleansing and sacred," she said. "And it sounded great together. It doesn't hurt that her last name is Hart -- flexible cleansed heart."
Though all is well with the happy family now, Willow gave her parents a hard time during her June 2 birth -- something that doesn't surprise the singer one bit.
"She was in the frank breech position, which is head up with her legs up by her head in a pike position. We tried everything to turn her around," Pink said, who ended up having to have a C-section. "Turns out this little girl had other plans -- she is my daughter, after all."
And now Pink and Hart are adjusting to life as all new parents do, but the singer said it's not as bad as some people make it seem.
"[Willow's] been amazing. Everyone gives you this terrifying picture of no sleep at all, bickering which leads to divorce ... they made it sound like waterboarding," she said of parenthood. "It's not that bad! I think I've cried more than she has and that's just because I'm emotional and a little nuts."The singer has also been sharing tidbits of her new life as "Mommy" on Twitter.
"My life was once whiskey, tears, and cigarettes ... now it's snot, tears, and the color of poop. #bliss," the singer Tweeted when Willow was just two weeks old. "I do miss the whiskey though."
"yeah!!!!!!!! up all night!!!! reliving my past... i've just replaced techno music with ocean sounds- glow sticks with night lights," she wrote on June 28, clearly up with baby Willow.
"ok, I'm spent. little girl is hungry. time for a milkshake. :) that just means i dance while she's nursing," the new mom also wrote on June 30.
