Halsey's Surprise Pregnancy News Is Turning Heads

Congratulations are in order for singer and activist Halsey — she's expecting her first child! In a shocking yet casual Instagram post, the "You Should be Sad" singer shows her growing baby bump while donning a crocheted, rainbow bikini-top and unbuttoned blue jeans. In her caption, Halsey simply says "surprise!" along with a baby bottle, rainbow, and angel baby emoji. 

Aside from the Instagram pics taken by photographer Sam Dameshek, Halsey has not shared any more details about her pregnancy, including who the baby's father is. However, Us Weekly speculated that  Alev Aydin is the father — and Halsey did tag him on her baby bump in the first photo. Aydin, a screenwriter, also posted Halsey's announcement to his Instagram story, along with heart emojis. Fans haven't heard or seen much of Halsey and Aydin as an item, though they were spotted buying art supplies together in October 2020, per the Daily Mail.

In light of this happy news, let's take a look at her beautiful announcement and her pregnancy journey.

The post is especially poignant as Halsey has been very vocal about her past struggles with fertility, miscarriages, and endometriosis. When speaking to The Guardian in 2020, Halsey referred to having a miscarriage as being "the most inadequate I've ever felt." She goes on to tell the publication that finds it "demoralizing" that she "can't do the one thing I'm biologically put on this earth to do." In a song titled "More" from her most recent album, Manic, Halsey gives fans even more insight into her desire for motherhood: "And when you decide it's your time to arrive/ I've loved you for all of my life/ And nothing could stop me from giving a try." 

Needless to say, fans are ecstatic for the singer, and news of her pregnancy has been making waves on Twitter. We'll have to wait to see if Halsey decides to share more details about her pregnancy, but in the meantime, the singer is beaming over the announcement of her "rainbow" baby.
