Pink recently revealed that she rewrote her will while battling COVID-19 last year.
She and her three-year-old son Jameson tested positive at the same time and both of them got extremely sick.
“It was really really scary and really bad,” she recalled.
When Pink tested positive for COVID-19 in April 2020, she wasn’t sure she would survive the illness. She fell ill alongside her three-year-old son, Jameson, and their symptoms were so rough that she made the decision to rewrite her will.
“It was really, really bad, and I rewrote my will,” Pink told Mark Wright of Heart Radio show, per Extra. Thankfully, her husband Carey Hart and daughter Willow remained healthy, but she admitted to reaching a point where she “thought it was over” for her and Jameson.
“I called my best friend and I said, ‘I just need you to tell Willow how much I love her,’” the singer admitted. “It was really really scary and really bad.”
Pink previously opened up about the severity of her and her son’s symptoms, noting that Jameson experienced the worst of them. “He’s had a fever for three weeks and diarrhea and then constipation and then throwing up and pale and listless and lethargic and all the things that scare the bejesus out of you as a mama,” she said at the time in an Instagram Live with author and yoga instructor Jen Pastiloff.
The “What About Us” singer later said on The Ellen Degeneres Show that the virus forced her to use nebulizers to combat her asthma. “I’ve had really, really bad asthma to the point where sometimes I end up in the hospital. I woke up in the middle of the night and I couldn’t breathe. I needed my nebulizer for the first time in 30 years,” she said. “I couldn’t function without it. That’s when I started to get really scared.”
Ahead of Mother’s Day last year, she called her COVID-19 journey “the most physically and emotionally challenging experience I have gone through as a mother.” When she feared for her life, it really made her reflect on the impact she would leave behind—especially on her kids.
“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 told Wright. “‘And what do I need to tell them if this is the last time I get to tell them anything?’”
Thankfully, it wasn’t and she and Jameson fully recovered. And for that, she feels extremely lucky.
