In an intimate reveal on Instagram, actress Halle Bailey announced the arrival of her first child with boyfriend DDG. The couple have named their newborn son Halo.
Bailey, known for her role in "The Little Mermaid", and her boyfriend DDG, founder of Zooted Music record label, have been dating for over a year. They made their relationship public in March 2022 via a post on DDG's birthday.
The notoriously private actress surprised her fans with the news of her son's birth. She posted a photo on Instagram of her hand holding a tiny one wearing a gold bracelet with the name "Halo" etched on it. In the caption, she wrote, "Even though we’re a few days into the new year, the greatest thing that 2023 could have done for me, was bring me my son.. welcome to the world my halo."
Bailey had never publicly confirmed her pregnancy, however, she did address a fan's comment about having a "pregnancy nose" in a Snapchat video last November.
In a previous interview with PEOPLE, Bailey spoke about her relationship with DDG, hinting at him being her real-life Prince Charming. She also mentioned how their relationship has been a transformative experience for her, inspiring her upcoming solo album which explores themes of deep love and self-discovery source.
