The "Diane" and "Burning House" singer shared several photos throughout her pregnancy and was candid about the life of a working mom.

"Besides snacking & resting my big ol belly during these last days of pregnancy- I've been planning out how best to coordinate my 2020 album release schedule with my breastfeeding schedul. Boss mom sh*t!" she wrote. "Did you know that full-time working mamas, regardless of their education level, their age, where they live in the US, or their occupation, are paid less than dads? An even bigger wage gap than the normal gender discrepancy. You can check out the stats at NWLC.org if you wanna think more about how this affects all of us."
