Recently, Pink appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and opened up on her choice to cease posting about her children online. After sharing a photo of herself, Willow, and Jameson befriending a pelican, she received comments from people who were concerned about her 2-year-old son not wearing diapers.

She later removed the photo and posted a censored image.

“I didn’t even realise. I didn’t look at the picture that way,” she told DeGeneres, before detailing the family’s “incredible experience” interacting with the bird.

The “Beautiful Trauma” singer added that Jameson doesn’t like to wear wet swim diapers, so she didn’t think much of it.

“I don’t think like that,” she said. “We live on a farm. My kids are naked. It’s what happens. I’m naked sometimes.

Pink added: “And then people went as far as saying someone should call child services because he didn’t have a diaper on … some of the nastiest things.”

“I cried so hard after that because I like to share my family, it’s my proudest moment in my whole life,” she said. “I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done and I won’t share them anymore.”
