Halle Bailey & DDG Announce Birth of Baby Halo

Actor and musician Halle Bailey and rapper DDG have announced the birth of their baby!

Halle took to Instagram to share their sweet news, posting a photo of her hand holding her newborn’s hand. The baby is wearing a gold bracelet etched with the name “Halo”.

She captioned the image, “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 my world Halo.”

She added, “the world is desperate to know you,” followed by some laughing emojis – most likely because fans have been questioning whether she’s been pregnant for several months. But being the private person that she is, Halle managed to keep this rather huge news very quiet!

As you can imagine, their sweet baby news was met with huge love in the comments section. Rapper Nicki Minaj posted “Welcome to earth, Halo. We’ve been expecting you” whilst actor and singer Cynthia Erivo wrote, “Congratulations, very well done. Well done for holding this sacred moment to your chest and your heart!! Welcome Halo, a fitting name for a child, born of a heavenly mother.”
