Pink has revealed to US publication People that she is raising her children gender neutral.

The 38 year old singer said she did not want her daughter Willow, six, and 11-month-old son Jameson to be defined by traditional gender roles as they live in a ‘label-less household’.

And in an adorable anecdote, Pink also revealed that Willow had told her she wants to marry an African woman when she grows up.


‘We are a very label-less household,’ the star, who is married to motorcycle racer Carey Hart, told publication.

‘Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like: “Great, can you teach me how to make African food?”


‘And she’s like: “Sure mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready.”‘


Laughing, she added: “I was like ‘what the f***, who are you? Who is paying for this by the way?’”



Continuing, the star said, “I was in a school and the bathroom outside the kindergarten said: ‘Gender Neutral – anybody’, and it was a drawing of many different shapes.

“I took a picture of it and I wrote: ‘Progress’. I thought that was awesome. I love that kids are having this conversation.”


Pink says she sees herself as a pre-teen boy but revels in being a mum.

She said: “I’m much more mum than I am anything else. Absolutely 100%. They are my everything. It’s the two best decisions I ever made.

“Every decision I make is a choice because it affects my family.

“I do bake sales and lemonade stands. I take my kid to school and try to get there on time.

“I’m a f***ing grown up now, it’s so weird. I’m still a 12-year-old boy.”
