is a mom – and she's thinking pink, too!
The singer gave birth to a daughter, Willow Sage Hart, on Thursday in Los Angeles, she announced via Twitter
"We are ecstatic to welcome our new beautiful healthy happy baby girl, Willow Sage Hart," Pink, 31, wrote. "She's gorgeous, just like her daddy [Carey Hart]. #beyondblessed"
Just a day prior, the singer sounded ready to meet her baby, Tweeting a cryptic message
on Wednesday night about it being a good time for new beginnings under an auspicious astrological sky.
"New Moon in Gemini today :) a good time to start something new.... Also called the Honey Moon. #intoit," she wrote.
Pink first confirmed she was pregnant
in November after she was spotted sporting a baby bump and received a congratulatory Tweet
from a pal on the social networking site.
"I didn't want to talk about it because I was just really nervous and I have had a miscarriage before," the singer explained to Ellen DeGeneres
on her talk show.
Since the confirmation, the pop star has openly gushed about impending parenthood and her baby-on-the way.
"I have a life inside of me, and I want her or him to know that I will accept him or her with open and loving and welcoming arms," she wrote
on her Web site to accompany the release of her video for her single, "F-----' Perfect." "And though I will prepare this little munchkin for a sometimes cruel world, I will also equip this kid to see all the beauty in it as well."
