Halsey Just Welcomed Her First Child and Shared Stunning Photos


Halsey is officially a mom!

In a new Instagram post, Halsey shared the news that she welcomed her first child with her partner, Alev Aydin, on July 14. “Gratitude. For the most ‘rare’ and euphoric birth. Powered by love,” Halsey wrote alongside stunning black-and-white photos from the hospital bed with her baby, Ender Ridley Aydin.

Halsey announced her pregnancy back in January with a baby bump shoot with photographer Sam Dameshek. “Surprise 🍼🌈👼🏻,” Halsey captioned the photos, which also served as a confirmation of sorts that her screenwriter beau was the father, considering Aydin was tagged right over her stomach. 

“Heart so full, I love you, sweetness,” Aydin wrote in the comments, per People, to which Halsey replied, “I love you!!!!! And I love this mini human already!” Aydin also shared Halsey’s announcement on his Instagram Stories with two heart emojis. 

“Nobody knew I was dating someone,” Halsey told Allure of their love story. “As if people were entitled to an update, like, ‘I’ve met someone, we’re going on dates, it’s getting serious, they’ve moved in, we’re planning a child, we are having a baby, we had a baby, this is the gender….’” 

The “Without Me” singer added, “I signed up to give my whole life away; my loved ones didn’t.” 

Despite the “surprise” caption, this baby was “100% planned.” Halsey took to Instagram Stories following the announcement to shut down any rumors that suggested otherwise. “Why is it ok to speculate and pass judgment about fertility and conception?” she asked in a post from March. “My pregnancy was 100% planned, and I tried very hard for this bb. But I would be just as happy even if it were another way.”

The singer has struggled with endometriosis, a condition that causes the tissue that normally lines the uterus to grow outside it. This can lead to infertility in up to half of the women with the diagnosis.

 In 2020, Halsey opened up about the miscarriage she suffered just before going on tour a few years ago. “It’s the most inadequate I’ve ever felt,” she told The Guardian. “Here I am achieving this out-of-control life, and I can’t do the one thing I’m biologically put on this earth to do. Then I have to go onstage and be this sex symbol of femininity and empowerment? It is demoralizing.”

Now Halsey has welcomed a beautiful, healthy baby into the world with the person they love. “Alev and I have been really good friends for four years,” she told Allure. “And when the stars aligned, our relationship became romantic and it was pretty evident that he and I were both like, ‘Oh, my gosh! You’re the person I’m supposed to start a family with.’”
