The happy parents were originally married for five years before welcoming Willow into their lives and also share a son, whom they welcomed in 2016.

Pink kept it comfortable as she spent time with her daughter in the photo, where she wore a black athletic top paired with a matching set of leggings.

The hitmaker, born Alecia Moore, added a few elements of pop to her outfit with a yellow flannel shirt worn around her waist and multicolored neon socks.

The Raise Your Glass singer wore round sunglasses and covered most of her luscious blonde hair with a black bandana.

Hart’s photos all showed Willow at different times in her life as she took up activities such as BMX riding and wakeboarding.

One of the photos of the former professional freestyle motocross racer showed his daughter spending time with her mother while they were on a mountain.

The athlete also wrote a lengthy message to his eldest child in the post’s caption, saying that she had helped him learn certain things that served him well as a parent.

Hart wrote: ‘The love of my life. My #1. The person who taught me instant love. The person who taught me to be a father. Happy 10th willow.’

He also noted that although his daughter was going through her life faster than he expected, he was sure she would grow into a well-meaning human being.

‘You grow up way too fast. But since you have an amazing mother and myself, I can’t wait to see the strong and independent woman you become. I love you,” he wrote.

Pink and Hart first met in 2001 and dated for several years before the singer proposed to her now-husband at a motocross event in 2005.

The two then tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in Costa Rica held the following year, although they eventually split in 2008.

The couple remained close during their period of estrangement, and the following year they reconciled after attending marriage counseling.

The couple welcomed Willow in June 2011, and they added a four-year-old son named Jameson Moon to their family in 2016.

Pink explained how she balances her responsibilities as a parent and as a performer during an interview with People, where she revealed that other singers looked up to her as a parenting model as they embarked on a musical career.

Touring with kids is impossible – and I’ve done the impossible.

“For a while, there were a lot of other pop stars who emailed me and called me for the script on touring with kids, so I wrote a playbook for other moms,” she said.

The So What singer also noted that she was grateful to be a parent and had grown accustomed to the difficulties involved in raising young children while talking to the media.

“They are totally weird and cheerful, and I enjoy every moment of them… Even the hard days are a blessing,” the singer noted.
