The singer sat down with Carson Daly for the NBC morning show airing on Friday and opened up about the challenges the couple faced in order to keep their family together.
Pink and Hart share two children together, daughter Willow Sage, 7, and son Jameson Moon, 2 —they just celebrated their 13th Wedding Anniversary not too long ago.
She said in the interview:
“Carey and I have been in couples counseling almost our entire 17 years that we’ve been together.
It’s the only reason we’re still together. He speaks Polish, I speak Italian, and she speaks both. We don’t speak the same language.”
“We come from broken families, and we had no model for: How are we supposed to keep this family together and live this crazy life? And there’s no book that says, ‘Here’s how to do this.’ So we go to counseling, and it works.”
The singer also discussed mental health and going to therapy for anxiety and depression. She said:
“I know anxiety is like the number one thing that kids now are going through.
Like for us, for my generation, I feel like it was depression and suicide. And suicide is super prevalent still, but now it’s like it comes from a place of anxiety. And I get that. I fully understand that.”
According to Live Strong, counseling can be a great tool to learn problem-solving techniques and how to handle emotions.
Everyone could benefit from talking to a therapist, wrote the publication.
It can help all sorts of people in lots of different situations navigate through life’s challenges.
