Surprise! The award-winning singer Halsey is PREGNANT!
Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, or as she is more well known, Halsey, has just informed her devoted followers, and ultimately the world, that she is finally having a baby!
It was just announced today, Wednesday, Jan. 27, on Halsey’s verified Instagram page, that she is indeed pregnant and is expecting her first child in the next coming months. Halsey made this announcement through a post of three soon-to-be-baby-mama pictures with the caption “surprise! ???? Photos by @samdameshek.” The photo currently has 2.9 million likes and is still racking up lots of attention.
In the photo, Halsey tagged Alev Aydin on her belly. He is presumed to be the baby daddy and even commented “Heart so full, I love you, sweetness ❤️❤️” with Halsey replying back, “@zoneaydin I love you!!!!! And I love this mini human already!” Alev Aydin also reposted Halsey’s post on his Instagram story with two heart emojis right under it.
Halsey also sent out a tweet on Twitter saying “my rainbow ?,” which has already gotten 19.8K retweets and 157K likes. This is major news for the singer and something she is definitely excited about, as she has struggled with her fertility and getting pregnant in the past.
In February of 2020, Halsey spoke to The Guardian about her struggles with pregnancy and her view of her own self-worth. The singer told the news outlet that she had previously had a miscarriage, stating that that was the “most inadequate I’ve ever felt.” She continues on by saying, “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.”
The singer continued on to tell the outlet that her Manic album, which came out a little over a year ago on Jan. 17, 2020, is a really special album for her and that her song “More” is all about her struggles with fertility and reproductive health. “I’ve been really open about my struggles with reproductive health, about wanting to freeze my eggs and having endometriosis and things like that—for a long time—I didn’t think that having a family was something I was going to be able to do, and it’s very, very important to me. Then one day my OB-GYN tells me it’s looking like I maybe can, and I was so moved. It felt like this ascension into a different kind of womanhood.” Halsey continued to say, “All of a sudden, everything is different. I’m not going to go tour myself to death because I have nothing else to do and I’m overcompensating for not being able to have this other thing that I really want. Now, I have a choice. I’ve never had a choice before.”
Now, with it being a whole year later, with all the struggles that Halsey has had to face with her reproductive health and view on her own femininity, all of her hard work and worries with pregnancy are soon to be behind her. She is sure to expect nothing but love and rainbows for her and her new family-to-be.
