Halsey told The Guardian in February 2020 that becoming a mom was "looking like something that's gonna happen for me. That's a miracle."

The singer previously suffered a miscarriage, telling the outlet that was the "most inadequate I've ever felt." She explained at the time: "Here I am achieving this out-of-control life, and I can't do the one thing I'm biologically put on this earth to do. Then I have to go onstage and be this sex symbol of femininity and empowerment? It is demoralizing."

In her Manic album notes for Apple Music, Halsey shared that her song "More" is about her struggles with reproductive health.

"I've been really open about my struggles with reproductive health, about wanting to freeze my eggs and having endometriosis and things like that," she wrote. "For a long time, I didn't think that having a family was something I was going to be able to do, and it's very, very important to me."

"Then one day my OB-GYN tells me it's looking like I maybe can, and I was so moved. It felt like this ascension into a different kind of womanhood," added Halsey. "All of a sudden, everything is different. I'm not going to go tour myself to death because I have nothing else to do and I'm overcompensating for not being able to have this other thing that I really want. Now, I have a choice. I've never had a choice before."
