Halsey has found their new passion.

The "Without Me" singer opened up in a recent interview about how motherhood has impacted their career and how their priorities have shifted since welcoming a son, Ender Ridley, in July.

The 27-year-old also admitted to Billboard that they're glad they released their latest album before their pregnancy ended because becoming a mom has shifted their focus away from music.

"I'm glad we got to make this album when we did because being a mother to my son makes being a musician seem pretty boring," Halsey said.

She revealed that having a child has completely extinguished their ego. 

"Something really amazing happened when I did have my son, which is the absolute, glorious eradication and death of my ego," she explained. "Nothing matters when I go home to him. He thinks I'm perfect and great and everything."

The artist continued, explaining that when they decide it's time to create again, it will be simply because they want to and they're excited to. 

Hopefully, that means that whatever I make is going to be something that I'm just burning to get out there," she added.

In an August interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe, Halsey got candid about the challenges of being a new mom in the public eye, and the perception that they're a "teen mom."

"I got treated like a teen mom a lot of the times, you know what I mean? Where people were like, 'Oh my God, you're so young, and you have so much to do in your career, and you're not married and you're this,'" they explained.

The singer also noted that pregnancy isn't always "flowers, butterflies and milk baths" either. 

"Pregnancy for some women is a dream, and pregnancy for some people is a f—-ing nightmare," she said. "And that's the thing that nobody else talks about — the pain, the blood, the disease, the fear, the fact that it's arguably the most dangerous condition a human body can experience and has been for a millennium, and kills people to this day."

"It's framed as this time where you should be so grateful," she added. "For me especially, talking about my loss publicly — which I have — talking about lost pregnancies and my struggles with reproductive health, and people saying, 'You should be so grateful.'
