It's time to raise your glass for Pink!

The 'What About Us' hitmaker was joined by her husband of 13 years Carey Hart and their son Jameson, two, and daughter Willow, seven, as she received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.

During her speech as her sidewalk tribute was placed next Jackie Chan and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's in Los Angeles, the 39-year-old pop superstar praised her husband for being her "muse" and hailed their two children as her "stars".

"Thank you to my fans — you guys make it matter. Thank you for coming," she said.

"My husband — he's so cute. He's my muse and if he didn't piss me off all the time, I'd have not much to say. I wouldn't be standing up here if it wasn't for you. Never change," Pink told Carey.

"My children — you guys are my stars and I would never shine without you."

The 'Trouble' singer went on to admit it was a "surreal" moment, before reflecting on the advice her father gave her.

"This is surreal. It has been a trip lately thinking back over the course of this career I've somehow managed to have. I signed my first record deal 23 years ago…and I'm only 23-and-a-half so that's crazy," Pink joked to the crowd.

"It’s been two decades and it’s been meaningful and it’s been awesome."

"Today for me is a celebration of something that my dad taught me. And that is 'to thine own self be true.'"

"There is a power in believing in yourself — you may not be the best that ever did it, you may not be the prettiest or the tallest or the funniest or the most talented or whatever you tell yourself that you're not. If you're stubborn and you don't give up and you work really hard — no one else can ever be you. Today is an absolute honour. Today proves that." 

Pink's friend Ellen DeGeneres also gave an emotional speech at the unveiling ceremony, in which she praised the Grammy Award-winning hitmaker for being a "great mother" and "setting an example" of how to be a “strong" independent woman to her daughter.

She said: "One of my favourite things about Pink is what a great mother she is to her two children."

"She's not just raising her daughter Willow, she's setting an example for her daughter on how to live in this world as a strong, independent woman who respects herself and others."

Carey later took to Instagram and share just how special the day was for Pink and their family.

"Such a cool experience watching wifey get her star on Hollywood walk," he wrote on social media. "Proud of you baby."
