Pink Reveals the ‘Only Reason’ She and Husband Carey Hart Are Still Together
Pink rose to fame in the early 2000s as a pop star with songs like “Just Like a Pill,” “God Is a DJ,” and “Who Knew.” However, these days, fans are also accustomed to seeing news about her personal life in the media.
She is currently married to former motocross racer Carey Hart. The couple has been together since the beginning of Pink’s career, though things have not always been easy. In fact, Pink and Hart were close to breaking up for good, but there was something that allowed them to continue on and thrive.
Pink and Carey Hart have been married for almost 15 years
Pink and Hart met each other in 2001 at the X Games in Philadelphia. The couple went through one break up in 2003 before quickly getting back together. Then, Pink proposed to Hart in 2005 with a sign at one of his races.
They got married in 2006 in Costa Rica. However, things were rocky for the newlyweds, and Pink announced their separation in 2008.
They did not stay apart for long, though. Pink and Hart got back together a year later, and they have since been enjoying an enduring marriage.
Pink and Hart have two kids together
Pink and Hart’s marriage has also been blessed with children. They welcomed a daughter named Willow in 2011. About five years later, Pink gave birth to a boy named Jameson.
While Pink seems happy now, getting there was not easy. She has opened up about suffering from multiple miscarriages throughout her life, starting from when she was 17 years old.
“When that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do,” Pink told USA Today in 2019. “I’ve had several miscarriages since, so I think it’s important to talk about what you’re ashamed of, who you really are and the painful [expletive].”
Pink has since been working hard at trying to process her emotions and learning to heal.
Pink reveals ‘the only reason’ she and Hart are still together
It’s clear Pink and Hart’s relationship has been full of ups and downs. However, instead of giving up on each other, the two of them continue to make things work.
Pink often credits couples counseling as being a huge force in helping them stay together. On a recent Instagram Live session with her therapist, Vanessa Inn, Pink even said counseling was “the only reason” she and Hart have made it this far.
“I got a lot of s–t for telling people that Carey and I have been in couples counseling with Vanessa,” Pink revealed, as reported by Page Six.
She also believes that a lot of relationships break down due to people’s different ways of communications, though counseling can help bridge that gap.
“It’s the only reason that we’re still together because you know, I think partners after a long time, we just speak — I can’t say it’s a man and woman thing, I think it’s a partner thing, a spouse thing — that you just speak two different languages,” Pink said. “You need someone to hear both of you and then translate it for you, and without Vanessa translating for me for the last 18 years, I mean we would not be together.”
Additionally, Pink blames the communications gap on many people not having been shown how to build relationships. She explained: “we are not taught as kids how to have relationships, how to get along with people. I mean, what’s happening in our country right now is a perfect example of that. We don’t know how to love each other, we don’t know how to get along, we don’t know how to communicate.”
Pink and Hart are not the only celebrity couple praising counseling. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, who have been together for over 12 years, also encourage other couples to seek counseling in order to help resolve problems in their relationships.
