Halsey revealed in late January that she was pregnant and expecting her first child, and the father of her baby was later revealed as her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin. The couple were first spotted together in public in October 2020. She set the record straight months later by letting critics know, “My pregnancy was 100% planned, and I tried very hard for this bb.”
She wore a rainbow crochet crop top in her pregnancy announcement that served as a subtle reminder of her previous pregnancy loss, with the expected child being a “rainbow baby.” She opened up about suffering a miscarriage onstage before she even had time to fully process she was pregnant in a 2018 interview on The Doctors. Halsey also shared that she was battling endometriosis, which can cause infertility, and she underwent surgery for it in 2017.
The then-23-year-old singer also said during The Doctors interview that she decided to freeze her eggs, saying, “I need to be aggressive about protecting my fertility, about protecting myself.” In February, Halsey proudly showed off the scars on her lower abdomen from the surgery on her Instagram Story. “The scars that got me this angel,” she wrote, adding the hashtag #endowarrior.
Halsey previously starred as herself in a small cameo in 2018’s A Star Is Born with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
