The couple shares two children, Jameson Moon, 5, and Willow Sage, 11. The singer has opened up about how being a parent with Hart has changed her for the better. “I’m much more open. I’m much more accepting of myself. I’m much more thoughtful,” Pink told Carson Daly on Today in 2019, according to Us Weekly. “I plan more. I have to. I have to figure out the balance.”
Some of the artist’s most famous hits were breakup songs written about her husband, including “So What,” “Mean,” “I Don’t Believe You,” and “Please Don’t Leave Me” from her Funhouse album. When questioned whether Hart minds being the inspiration, Pink told People, “I think deep down he’s flattered. He has been my muse. He knows what he signed up for, and the hits are just going to keep on coming, as they say.”
