Who is Halsey's baby daddy Alev Aydin? How the singer sparked romance with her boyfriend of 'several months'
The Grammy Award nominee has kept her relationship mostly under wraps. But in the aftermath of the pregnancy announcement, she did give away a little clue
American singer-songwriter Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, known professionally as Halsey, announced on Wednesday, January 27, that she was pregnant and she made the announcement with a set of gorgeous photos. “Surprise,” wrote the 26-year-old singer along with emojis of a baby bottle, a rainbow, and a baby.
The news soon sparked much intrigue on social media and fans couldn't stop wondering who was the baby's father. If you're wondering that too, here's all you need to know about Halsey and her partner.
Who is the baby’s father?
While Halsey did not mention who the child’s father was in her post, US Weekly reported that the ‘Without Me’ singer is pregnant with her first child with screenwriter Alev Aydin. The 37-year-old screenwriter and producer and the singer have never confirmed their relationship.
As per E! News, they have only been photographed in public once, in October 2020, while they shopped for art supplies in Los Angeles. The report added, however, that the two got matching tattoos last year, during a Southern California getaway. According to PEOPLE, the couple "have been dating for several months". It also added, "Halsey has been low-key about their relationship. They were spending a lot of time at her house in the fall though, and it was obvious that she was happy."
After Halsey’s announcement, Aydin reshared Halsey's pregnancy announcement on his Instagram Story, adding two red heart emojis. He also commented on her post, writing, "Heart so full, I love you, sweetness [two red heart emojis]," to which she responded, "I love you!!!!!! And I love this mini human already!"
Aydin co-wrote the 2013 web series ‘Turbo and Joey’. He and his writing partner, Justin Schack, also co-created the 2017 Netflix series ‘Small Shots’. Both shows star Jeremy Luke, Caitlin Thompson, and Joseph Russo. Aside from that, Aydin wrote and starred in the 2013 film ‘Lonely Boy’. In 2018, he appeared in the thriller ‘Cruel Hearts’. He has also played small roles in ‘General Hospital’.
During a 2018 interview with Marie Claire, the singer said that she had talked about motherhood with then-boyfriend G-Eazy. “I’m freezing my eggs at 23. My doctor’s like, ‘You’re the youngest patient I’ve ever had'. Also, nothing like having a new partner and being like, ‘By the way, I need to know if you want to have kids right now, because if you don’t, I need to go date someone else,'” she said at the time. “I have a very limited window of time. You know what I mean? Nothing like that to scare away a 27-year-old guy.” In 2016, she revealed that she suffered a miscarriage the year prior.
Following the announcement, she performed on stage. “It’s the angriest performance that I’ve ever done in my life. That was the moment of my life where I thought to myself, ‘I don’t feel like a f***ing human being anymore,'” Hasley said in an interview. “This thing, this music, Halsey, whatever it is that I’m doing, took precedence and priority over every decision that I made regarding this entire situation from the moment I found out until the moment it went wrong. I walked offstage and went into the parking lot and just start throwing up.”
Other than Aydin and G-Eazy, Halsey has reportedly dated singer Matty Healy of The 1975; rapper Machine Gun Kelly; British singer-songwriter Dominic Richard Harrison, known professionally as Yungblud; and ‘American Horror Story’ star Evan Peters.
Halsey's music has received critical acclaim and she has won four Billboard Music Awards, one American Music Award, one GLAAD Media Award, an MTV Video Music Award, and two Grammy Award nominations.
