Posing in a rainbow crochet bikini top and jeans, Halsey surprised the world Wednesday with a pregnancy announcement.
Fans cooed over the unexpected maternity photos, shot by 21-year-old photographer Sam Dameshek in front of a silk drape background.
“Surprise!” Halsey, 26, captioned the photos on Instagram.
The pop singer, born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, grew up in Washington, Warren County. She is expecting her first child with boyfriend Alev Aydin, 37, who she tagged in the photos.
This is not Halsey’s first pregnancy. She suffered a miscarriage while on tour in 2015 and had her eggs frozen after being diagnosed with and undergoing surgery for endometriosis. In a 2019 tweet, she said she had experienced three miscarriages.
“My rainbow,” she said in a tweet Wednesday. The message and rainbow bikini (and rainbow emojis) ostensibly referred to “rainbow baby,” a term for a baby that arrives after a previous miscarriage, stillbirth or death of an infant.
“I want to be a mom more than I want to be a pop star,” she told Rolling Stone in 2016. “More than I want to be anything in the world.”
Aydin, a screenwriter, had only been tentatively linked with Halsey in recent months, but is sure to become one of the most Googled people this week. In October, he was seen with Halsey buying art supplies in Los Angeles.
“I left my house once in like the past three months and you guys know this because I got mf papped,” she tweeted Saturday, perhaps referring to Daily Mail photos of the art store outing with Aydin.
Aydin (see photo below) shared her pregnancy photos on his Instagram stories.
