Halsey is now a mom!
The â€œWithout Meâ€ singer reportedly gave birth to her first child, Ender Ridley Aydin, on July 14. Today, she posted heartwarming black-and-white photos of her holding Ender in her arms as her screenwriter boyfriend Alev Aydin looks on, along with a breastfeeding photo.
â€œGratitude. For the most â€˜rareâ€™ and euphoric birth. Powered by love,â€ Halsey captioned.
In January, the singer announced her pregnancy after sharing photos of her maternity shoot, showing off her baby bump and going topless in a few pics. She also announced her relationship with Aydin in the same Instagram post by tagging him and replying to his comment, â€œâ€‹â€‹Heart so full, I love you, sweetness,â€ with, “I love you!!!!! And I love this mini human already!”
The birth of Ender followed two weeks after Halsey unveiled the powerful, iconic cover for her upcoming fourth album, If I Canâ€™t Have Love, I Want Power, depicting the singer sitting on a gold steel throne and dressed as a regal Madonna figure with her left breast exposed while holding an infant. She wrote that the project is a â€œconcept album about the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth,â€ and she asserted, â€œThe idea that me as a sexual being and my body as a vessel and gift to my child are two concepts that can co-exist peacefully and powerfully.â€
â€œThis cover image celebrates pregnant and postpartum bodies as something beautiful, to be admired,â€ she continued. â€œWe have a long way to go with eradicating the social stigma around bodies and breastfeeding.â€
If I Canâ€™t Have Love, I Want Power is expected to be released on August 27.
