Surprise—Halsey Is Pregnant With Her First Child

Congratulations!

Welp, we have yet another famous person here to contribute to the growing list of celebrity babies coming into the world this year, and much to everyone's surprise, that person is singer/songwriter/multi-hyphenate icon...Halsey! Out of the blue, Halsey announced that she is pregnant with her very first child and dropped the news by posing for the cutest maternity shoot, which of course, made its way to her Instagram account.

I personally dare you to look at how adorable these pics are and try not to die from ~feels~:

And as for who the father is? Thankfully, Halsey did us a solid by tagging us in the announcement and revealed that the soon-to-be dad is Alev Aydin (opens in new tab), a writer and producer. From the looks of it, he seems to be pretty excited too—he reposted Halsey's maternity pic to his Instagram Stories and added two little hearts. One for Halsey, and one for their child!

While this news may come as a surprise to many, Halsey has always expressed that she wanted to become a mother. In the past, Halsey has opened up about her struggles with conceiving a child and experiencing multiple miscarriages (opens in new tab) due to her endometriosis.

In an interview with The Guardian (opens in new tab) last February, she said that her experience with miscarrying was "the most inadequate I’ve ever felt. 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."

Note: Halsey was dating Evan Peters at the time of her comments, but later revealed in The Guardian profile that "[motherhood is] something that’s gonna happen for me. That’s a miracle." Congrats to Halsey on carrying her bundle of joy! ❤️
