Rachel Platten Finally Reveals She's Pregnant After Months Of Complications
Singer Rachel Platten has excitedly revealed the news that she's expecting her first child, but it took her quite some time to discuss it, as she went through months of complications prior to the big announcement.
It's the first child for the 37-year-old and her husband, Kevin Lazan. The two got married back in 2010.
The songstress, who rose to fame with her 2015 hit "Fight Song," shared a lengthy Instagram post on Wednesday in which she revealed the news that she's pregnant and shared some of the complications that have come along with it.
"This is one of my most exciting announcements, but also one of my most vulnerable. So here goes.... I am pregnant!!," Rachel excitedly announced. "I can’t believe I’m finally typing these words – I have wanted to share this news for months. As I thought about how to share what I have been experiencing, I became paralyzed about doing it the exact, perfect way - how to express all of my total bliss and yet all this fear too? I finally realized that I can’t worry about making being ME comfortable for everybody else, I have to share this journey MY WAY: with honesty, vulnerability, love and an open heart."

"The truth is, I am overwhelmed with love, joy and happiness about our baby. It’s a total miracle that I’m growing a human and my husband and I couldn’t be more thrilled. But, I have also had an incredibly difficult spring and summer with serious nausea, exhaustion, constant sickness and all the awful symptoms no one wants to really talk about when sharing the “perfect blessed journey” of pregnancy. I was so afraid that if I shared that part (the difficulty of flying and performing while puking in green rooms and airplanes) that I’d seem ungrateful somehow when I’m actually crazy full of gratitude - I’m just HUMAN."
"Human emotions are complex. We can feel more than one thing at once you know? We can hold both love and wonder and aw and joy, but also frustration and sickness and fear and darker stuff too and it’s normal! So anyway, that’s where I’m at my loves. With all the mystery and wonder around this, one thing that has been abundantly clear to me: this little unbelievable soul that I haven’t even met yet is going to be my biggest teacher in the world and I cannot wait to learn."
She concluded the post with "I love you all so much, and I promise to continue to share as much of this process with you as I can. Xoxoxox, a totally happy, exhausted, not so nauseous today Rach."
