Willow Sage Hart: 10 Facts About Pink's Daughter

Pink has had a remarkable career spanning over two decades, making a name for herself with her debut album, "Can't Take Me Home." Fans have watched adoringly as Pink underwent an incredible transformation, from Alecia Moore to an unapologetic, pink-haired, R&B pop singer, to a sophisticated and equally unapologetic music icon who's sold over 60 million albums. While breaking records, she had an on-again, off-again relationship with Carey Hart. They ultimately worked things out, marrying in 2006, and welcomed two children. Willow Sage Hart was born on June 2, 2011, and Jameson Moon Hart was born on December 26, 2016.

Pink has spoken extensively about her kids and becoming a parent, telling People, "I did not know I was going to have a family. I didn't picture that for myself because I was terrified I would be a terrible mother. But, oh my God, being a mom is the most incredible thing I've ever done. It's shocking how responsible I've become."

Willow Sage Hart is growing up quickly, and as Pink's mini-me is beginning to show off her talents, the pop singer has barely been able to contain her pride as a mother. Having already made several appearances with Pink over the years, fans want to know everything there is to learn about her. Here are facts about Willow Sage Hart, Pink's daughter.

She was the inspiration behind Just Like Fire

When Pink released the 2016 anthem, "Just Like Fire" for the movie "Alice Through the Looking Glass," the overall theme of empowerment and individuality was clear. In an interview with People, Pink revealed that the track was inspired by her daughter Willow, who was just 4 years old at the time. "She's my inspiration for everything," she said. "I think of little girls like her when I'm doing something like this ... I think of that spirit Willow has, where she's totally uninhibited and wants to dance around naked, and that's how I go into the song."

Pink added that she and Willow attended an early screening of "Alice Through the Looking Glass," and said, "What's awesome about 'Alice' is the whole theme, from the start of the movie, is: Girls can do it, too. She's the captain of her own ship, but it takes her femaleness to be that fierce." Pink concluded that she's always trying to give her daughter that sense of empowerment.

And Pink's inspiration got to stay close during the making of the "Just Like Fire" music video, as Willow got to feature in it as a little girl enchanted by a blue butterfly, following it through the looking glass (via YouTube). It seems it was an entire family project, as Willow's father Carey Hart is also briefly featured at the beginning and end of the video.

She's following in her mom's footsteps

It's not uncommon for celebrity children to take after their parents, be it acting or singing, and Willow Sage Hart is no exception. She has taken after Pink and shown that musical talent runs in the family. After the success of 2017's movie "The Greatest Showman," Atlantic Records' president, Kevin Weaver, wanted to release a cover album of the movie's songs. So, in 2018, the mother/daughter duo was invited to record "A Million Dreams" for "The Greatest Showman: Reimagined" album, with Willow singing the reprise.

In 2021, Pink and Willow released another duet titled "Cover Me in Sunshine," which was accompanied by a music video featuring the pair dancing and exploring together outdoors. In an Instagram video, Pink teased the song, saying, "I love singing with my daughter. ... We have this song called 'Cover Me in Sunshine' that we recorded at home because it made us feel happy."

While on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Pink commented on her daughter's response to the song's success. "She doesn't care at all about any of this stuff. ... I said, 'How do you feel? Like, you have a number-one song in the Netherlands.' She was like, 'Which city is that?' I was like, 'Amsterdam.' She was like, 'Oh, I miss that city. Can I watch "Avatar"?' ... She's just funny" (via YouTube). Despite her seeming naiveté around her popularity, Willow could definitely be on her way to stardom with her pipes.

Pink is teaching her to be resilient

Parents know that instilling resilience in their children from a young age is important. For Willow, this was impressed upon her from birth. Pink sat down with People in 2020 and explained the meaning behind her daughter's name. "The willow is my favorite tree. ... It's the most flexible tree in nature and nothing can break it — no wind, no elements," she said. "It can bend and withstand anything. I love that sentiment. I want that for her. Sage is cleansing and sacred. ... It doesn't hurt that her last name is Hart."

With a strong name in place, it's been a battle for Pink to maintain Willow's resilience. In 2017, she gave a heartfelt acceptance speech about her daughter at the MTV Video Music Awards (via YouTube). She explained that she was once driving Willow to school when her daughter said, "I'm the ugliest girl I know." In shock, Pink went home and made a presentation for Willow that showcased musicians and artists that "are probably made fun of every day of their life, and carry on and wave their flag."

Pink told her daughter, "We don't change. We take the gravel in the shell and we make a pearl. And we help other people to change so that they can see more kinds of beauty." Pink has maintained this sentiment for years, and it's a powerful message for her daughter and young people everywhere.

She's never been afraid to embrace new hairstyles

If your mom was known for her punk rock, dyed hair, you'd probably experiment with your own as well. And that's what Willow Sage Hart has done countless times, fearlessly rocking new colors and cuts with the support of her parents. Back in 2017, Pink took to Instagram to welcome Jameson to the world, featuring several photos of a pink-haired Willow holding her new brother. The following year, Carey Hart posted a photo of Willow, now rocking a purple 'do, on his Instagram, captioning it, "#MyDaughterIsMorePunkThanYours."

In 2019, Jessica Simpson became one of the many celebrities to be parent shamed when she posted a photo of her then-7-year-old daughter with dyed hair. Pink came to her defense in the most Pink way possible, sharing another photo on Instagram of Willow with blue locks, captioning it, "I heard people were bummed on Jessica Simpson for letting her 7-year-old get her hair colored. So we thought we'd share what we did yesterday." The hashtags "#GetYourOwnKids" and "#ParentPoliceAreActuallyJustLonelySadPeople" were used in the post, showing what Pink really thinks of parent shamers.

Just a couple months later, Carey Hart shared a photo on Instagram of his daughter's most punk rock look to date. Willow showed off an undercut in the post that Hart captioned, "Loving my punk rock daughter. Remember everyone, fly your own flag. There is no box to be put in. It's better to be your own self."

She's also following in her dad's footsteps

Willow Sage Hart has certainly inherited her mom's vocal talent, but her gifts don't stop there. Her father Carey Hart is a professional racer, and he's passed down his knack for BMX racing to his kids. In 2016, Hart took to Instagram to boast about his 5-year-old daughter's first BMX race with a photo of Willow decked out in black and pink gear. Pink posted on Instagram about the event as well, captioning the picture of Willow and her dad, "I like her intensity. She reminds me of someone. This might have been Carey Harts' best day ever," adding that Willow had placed third in the race.

A few years prior, Pink and her husband were parent-shamed when Hart shared a photo on Instagram of him and Willow on his motorcycle. His daughter, who was 2 years old at the time, was wearing protective headphones. Hart captioned it, "Been waiting for this day for a very long time. Willz went for her 1st ride on my motorcycle around the pits today."

Condescending comments filled the web, most claiming it was unsafe for Hart to take Willow out on his motorcycle. Pink responded on Twitter with, "If any of u (sic) have more experience on a bike than my husband, then I will listen to your opinions on how he should take my daughter for a ride." Clearly confident in her husband's abilities, Willow has been allowed to continue riding.

She travels the world with her mom on tour

Pink has spoken openly about being both a mom and a rock star and how it can be hard to balance at times. But luckily, she's been able to take her kids with her on the road when she's touring, which she spoke to People about in 2021. "Touring with kids is impossible — and I did the impossible. For a while there were a lot of other pop stars that were emailing me and calling me for the playbook on how to tour with kids, so I wrote a playbook for other moms. You just keep going."

While on "The Drew Barrymore Show," Pink commended her kids and their ability to travel with her. "I plan ahead a lot, and I get to take them through the world, and I have a really good support system. They're also awesome travelers, they're good kids, like, if it didn't work for them, we wouldn't be able to do it" (via YouTube).

This year, Pink announced that she's given Willow a job while they're on tour helping the dancers with quick change. Pink said she'd be paying Willow minimum wage as well, as she told "Today," "I said it's about $22.50 a show depending how long I go, if I run over. She goes, 'I'll take $20. It's easier to do the math.' I'm like, 'That's not how you negotiate for yourself.' I'm like, 'You'll take $25 so it's easier math.'"

Pink is encouraging her to break the rules

Willow Sage Hart's mom is known to be a bit of a badass and an advocate for rebellion, but as it turns out, Willow is somewhat the opposite. While speaking on "The Drew Barrymore Show," Pink said that she's trying to encourage her daughter to talk back at home. "I don't want my kids to think that perfection is a real thing. You don't have to be as wild as we were, but it's developmentally correct for kids to try stuff," she said (via YouTube). Pink went on to describe how she told Willow to try saying "no" at home, just to see what it feels like.

The pop singer had an angsty, partying phase as a teen until she overdosed in 1995. So, while on "The Morning Mashup," Pink was asked if she worried about her kids following in her wild child footsteps. Pink responded, "Even if they are, it's okay. I think people need to be a little wild these days. We need our girls to be fiery" (via YouTube). She continued, "I keep telling Willow, like, 'Dude, you've gotta start trying some s*** on. ... Like, why are you listening to everything I say? Try it on at home where you're safe and I'm gonna love you.'"

Pink's persistence for Willow to rebel a little and speak her mind is one of the many ways she's fostering a safe and supportive environment for her kids.

She loves gymnastics

It's clear Willow Sage Hart is a talented and active kid, much like her mother who has incorporated elaborate aerial silks performances into her concerts. Pink said that her daughter enjoys gymnastics, which is yet another thing the pair have in common.

Before she was selling out concerts and belting hits like "So What," Pink wanted to be an Olympic gymnast. She told The Telegraph, "I got kicked out [of gymnastics] when I was 12. ... I was really competitive. I wouldn't clap if I didn't win first place."

Many parents introduce their children to the hobbies and sports that interested them as children, and with singing, BMX racing, and gymnastics, Pink and Carey Hart are no different. However, few knew just how great of an athlete Willow was until she made a surprise appearance at the Billboard Music Awards in 2021 and performed an aerial act with her mother on stage (via YouTube). The duo spun around on silks that lifted them into the air while their song "Cover Me in Sunshine" played. After they landed back on their feet at the end, they hugged and Willow jumped up and down ecstatically, clearly proud of herself and the beautiful acrobatics they got to perform together.

Pink threw her a big sister party to welcome Jameson Hart

Sibling rivalries often begin when the youngest sibling is born, with jealousy and oldest-child syndrome setting in. But in 2017, Pink again proved that she's got it all figured out as a mom. Jameson Moon Hart was born in December 2016 when Willow was 5 years old. This would have been a prime moment for Willow to kick up a fuss, as is common when older siblings no longer have their parents all to themselves, but Pink knew how to combat this.

A few weeks after Jameson was born, Pink threw Willow a "big sister" party. The proud mom and sister posed with the newborn Jameson amid pink and blue balloons and a chocolate cake in Pink's Instagram post, captioned, "Congrats big sis! #BigSisterParty." Willow, smiling ear to ear, looked absolutely thrilled. While speaking on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Pink said that she's doing her best to prioritize Willow, but, "She's a little weepy these days, so we're working it out" (via YouTube).

Big sibling parties have become a popular way to ease the transition from only child to older sibling. Former "Bachelorette" star DeAnna Pappas Stagliano threw a big sister tea party for her daughter back in 2020 before welcoming her second child. Whether these parties work remains a mystery, but Willow and Jameson seem to get along just fine now, and we'd probably hear about it from Pink if they didn't.

She's been raised gender neutral

Given her reputation for nonconformist and "be yourself" mantras, it's no surprise that Pink isn't a fan of labels. Giving off a tomboy vibe herself, her kids have rocked all lengths of hair and all styles of clothes because, as Pink told The Mirror, "We are a very label-less household. 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.'"

When asked about raising her children gender-neutral, Pink told People, "I feel like gender-neutral is in itself a label and I'm label-less. I don't like labels at all." She continued, "So I have boys that flip dirt bikes and I have boy friends that wear dresses. It's all okay to me. It's whatever floats your boat. So that's the kind of house that we live in."

Labels or no labels, Pink says what she believes in is "needs being met and faith being implemented, and I believe in letting your kids know they can count on you, and that you'll be there." Pink's ability to express herself freely and the way she encourages her children to do the same has proven to be her go-to parenting style. It's resonated with parents and so far seems to have set Willow Sage Hart on a brilliant path.
