Halsey shows off endometriosis surgery scars

Halsey is a “warrior” — and she’s got the scars to prove it. 

On Thursday, the “Without Me” singer shared a Polaroid to her Instagram Stories of her baby bump, with two red arrows highlighting her scars from multiple surgeries to treat endometriosis.

She captioned the pic, “the scars that got me this angel” and used the hashtag “endo warrior.”

A day earlier, the 26-year-old singer announced that she’s expecting her first child with a trio of maternity pics on Instagram, tagging her reported boyfriend Alev Aydin. 

The screenwriter commented, “Heart so full, I love you, sweetness” which prompted Halsey to respond, “I love you!!!!! And I love this mini human already!”

The New Jersey native has been open in the past about her battle with endometriosis — an often painful condition in which tissues that normally line the inside of a uterus instead grow outside of it — which can lead to women having difficulties conceiving a child.

In 2018, she revealed on an episode of “The Doctors” that she was getting “aggressive” in treating her endometriosis and planning for a family.

“I’m 23 years old and I’m going to freeze my eggs,” explained. “And when I tell people that, they’re like, ‘You’re 23, why do you need to do that? Why do you need to freeze your eggs?’ Doing an ovarian reserve is important to me because I’m fortunate enough to have that as an option, but I need to be aggressive about protecting my fertility, about protecting myself.”

The “Colors” singer also suffered a miscarriage in 2016 while on tour.
