Halsey, 26, has welcomed their first child with screenwriter boyfriend Alev Aydin.

The Grammy-nominated “With Me” singer announced baby Ender Ridley Aydin’s July 14th arrival in a touching black-and-white Instagram post simply captioned, “Gratitude. For the most ‘rare’ and euphoric birth. Powered by love.”

Halsey had announced their pregnancy on the social media platform in January via a stunning series of belly-baring maternity photos. Aydin adorably slid into the comments section saying, “Heart so full, I love you, sweetness;" to which Halsey replied, “I love you!!! And I love this mini human already!”

Still, Halsey’s pregnancy wasn’t all smooth sailing. They recently told Allure that they threw up prenatal vitamins every day for the first two months. Moreover, they reflected on the expectation versus reality of preparing for motherhood: “When this pregnancy started, I was like ‘You’re going to do yoga and eat flaxseed. You’re going to use essential oils and hypnobirth and meditate… I have done none of those things. Zero. None. I eat cookies and had a bagel every single day for the last five months of my pregnancy.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Halsey has been honest about the journey to becoming a parent. They previously opened up about struggling with endometriosis and pregnancy loss, telling Rolling Stone in 2016, that they went on stage mere hours after suffering a miscarriage: “It’s the angriest performance that I’ve ever done in my life."

Halsey’s latest album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power is “about the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth.” They shared the album cover on Instagram, and described the peaceful coexistence of life as a “sexual being” and a “vessel and gift” to a child. Furthermore, they wrote that the cover honors "pregnant and postpartum bodies as something beautiful, to be admired.” The album will be released on Aug. 27, but in the meantime, Halsey has plenty to celebrate!
