"She was one of the loves of our life,” said Pink about the family's nanny, Trish, who died of cancer.
In her latest album, Trustfall, Pink had to tap into the pain of feeling as if the world is falling apart as it's an album that comes after the global pandemic. In an interview, about this album with Women's Health, the mom of two, 43, also spoke of where her body and mind are and about how the recent deaths in her family have impacted her children.
One such loss was of the singer's father, who died in August 2021 after living with cancer for eight years, reported PEOPLE. The other recent death was the family's nanny, Trish, who also died of cancer. "She was one of the loves of our life,” said Pink. She reflected on how to facilitate her kids’ closure around the relationship, which was helped by the fact that Trish had told the kids that "she would be their angel."
“And so my youngest, talking about this makes me cry. Jameson will walk around the kitchen and go, ‘Hey, Grandpa, hey, Trish'," said the singer, who shares the 6-year-old and daughter Willow Sage, 11, with husband Carey Hart.
When the family was on a hike, a hailstorm broke out, during which time Pink heard Jameson talking to Trish. The Just Give Me A Reason singer recalls him saying, " 'Trish, I know you're up there; you've got to make the wind stop!' "
She also spoke about the grief of losing her father with whom she had a complicated relationship. She said, “My work now is to remember all of the good things because I know sometimes I have a tendency to remember the bad s**t. I want to try to hold on to the good; there was a lot of good.”
In the interview, Pink also talks about her decision to move from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara. She also discussed how a preschool application asked her to describe her daughter Willow’s strengths and weaknesses and she wrote, “She’s 3.” She was chided by the admissions office, and then she decided to leave the city, and placed Willow in a school that was “outdoorsy and muddy.”
Willow enjoyed the spotlight in December 2022, when the pre-teen performed in her first voice recital. "So proud of this girl [first recital] nailed it," the Raise Your Glass artist wrote on Instagram, alongside a video of Willow's entire performance of Olivia Rodrigo's The Rose Song.
"This 11-year-old (11,000-year-old soul) blows me away. @oliviarodrigo" Pink added in the caption. Willow's performance was not just appreciated by her mom but also by other notable singers including Mandy Moore and Chrissy Metz. "Holy cow!!! What a voice! What composure. Superstar," Moore commented, while Metz wrote, "Wow ❤️."
