The makeup mogul and musician has been open about her past issues with endometriosis and multiple miscarriages. She has also said (per People), “I want to be a mom more than I want to be a pop star. More than I want to be anything in the world.”

So fans were excited for Halsey when their dreams of parenthood came true. On Jan. 27, the singer posted her pregnancy announcement on Instagram. The pictures show Halsey in jeans and a rainbow crochet top or topless against a background of white fabric. She captioned the pictures, “surprise! 🍼🌈👼🏻”

Halsey gave birth over the summer on July 14 and posted the first glimpses of her son on July 19. The first black and white photo shows Halsey holding her baby with her partner Alev Aydin in what appears to be a hospital. The second is a close-up of the baby breastfeeding, but only his mouth and tiny hand are visible. 

“Gratitude. For the most “rare” and euphoric birth. Powered by love. Ender Ridley Aydin 7/14/2021” Halsey wrote.

The singer just posted the first photos of her baby’s face

On Sept. 29, Halsey’s 27th birthday, they took to Instagram to post a couple of photos of baby Ender revealing his full face. She captioned the pictures, “The best birthday gift there is 🚀”

In the pictures, Ender wears a red, blue, yellow, and green onesie with a matching blue hat. He appears to be smiling and looking off into the distance. Ender’s father, Alev Aydin, holds him in the photos, although his face is obscured. But he is identifiable from the tattoos on his hands. 

This post marks the first time they have revealed their baby’s face publicly. Although it was Halsey’s birthday, it seems like sharing her baby was her gift to fans.

Halsey Opens Up About Body Image After Giving Birth

Besides being a new mom, Halsey is busy with several other projects

The singer has been vocal about society’s expectations of new mothers. She explained that she wasn’t at the 2021 Met Gala because she was still breastfeeding and couldn’t take the time away from her infant. 

But while the musician might be reveling in her new role as a mother, she is still working hard on many projects.

They recently launched a line of cosmetics called about-face, which they continue to promote on their social media. She also released a new album, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, which she said is about “the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth.” Halsey filmed a movie to accompany the album that played in IMAX theaters

Halsey is scheduled to appear as the musical guest on the Oct. 9 episode of Saturday Night Live, with reality star and fellow beauty mogul Kim Kardashian West starring as the host. This will be Halsey’s fifth time performing on SNL.
