Halsey and her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin, announced in January of 2021 that she was pregnant with their baby–and just a few days ago, the singer’s first child arrived.
Halsey shared the big news with the world through an Instagram post on the morning of July 19. It only took about 45 minutes for the post to garner 1.8 million likes from Halsey and Alev’s adoring fans, friends, and family members.
“Gratitude. For the most “rare” and euphoric birth. Powered by love.”Halsey
“Gratitude. For the most “rare” and euphoric birth. Powered by love,” she wrote in the caption. She also revealed the baby’s name and birthday for the first time: Ender Ridley Aydin was born last week on July 14.
Who Is Alev Aydin?
Halsey often sings about her trials and tribulations in love, and she has had many high-profile relationships with the likes of rapper G-Eazy, actor Evan Peters, and alternative rock singer Yungblud. However, Alev Aydin, a screenwriter, is the one who managed to steal Halsey’s heart.
Alev is reportedly 37 years old–11 years older than Halsey. Apparently, they met as Alev was attempting to write a biopic about Halsey’s career. Halsey then revealed to the public that instead of writing the screenplay, she and Alev ended up falling in love. Oops!
Alev, who goes by @zoneaydin on Instagram, is not the type to overshare. This is probably why we haven’t heard too much about this relationship, aside from a few photos here and there on their respective social profiles. They have both posted the rare photo of one another in the past, but the captions never reveal too much. This is likely why many people didn’t even know Halsey had a boyfriend until she tagged Aydin in one of her pregnancy photoshoots!
Aydin and Halsey have also been spotted wearing matching bands on their left fingers, prompting many to wonder if they secretly got married sometime this year. However, neither of them has confirmed that rumor. These two cuties definitely like to keep things lowkey, and their focus is entirely on their baby right now.
Halsey’s Big Summer
Halsey has already built an incredibly successful career, and it seems like a great time for the “You Should Be Sad” singer to go through such a joyous experience. She has struggled with health problems in the past, and it’s wonderful to see how happy she looks in the photo she posted holding her baby with Alev by her side. The new family is glowing with happiness!
Celebs are already starting to roll in with their congratulations. Olivia Rodrigo commented on the post, “The most beautiful family! Congratulations.” Vlogger Devon Carlson also added, “Congrats, yay!!!!” with a slew of heart-eye emojis.
The excitement in Halsey’s life doesn’t stop with the baby, though. Halsey’s fourth studio album, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, is set to be released by Capitol Records in August of this year. If anyone’s curious to learn more about Alev Aydin, I’m sure we’ll hear plenty of songs about their love story on this upcoming project.
In the meantime, we cannot wait to see more updates from Halsey and Alev about their new baby. Congratulations to the happy couple on having their very first child!
