Halle Bailey Reacts To Claims She Lied About Her Pregnancy

Halle Bailey shocked many fans this month when she announced that she and rapper boyfriend DDG had welcomed their first child, son Halo – but others took issue with her decision to keep her pregnancy a secret.

On Sunday, the Little Mermaid star issued a strong denial after a user on X, formerly Twitter, claimed she had “attempted to lie and gaslight” regarding her pregnancy in the months leading up to Halo’s birth.

“I never lied or even said anything about it darling,” Halle wrote. “Making jokes about noses is the furthest thing I’ve ever gone. I will never understand why you are angry. I protect my own peace, wouldn’t you do the same?”

After another X user urged Halle to “leave us (out of) the conversation” regarding her baby’s future, the actor and singer hit back: “If you don’t care, why are you responding darling? Don’t bother living your best life and don’t comment on mine.”

Halle first confirmed Halo’s arrival with a sweet photo on Instagram earlier this month. He did not specify his son’s birthday, only mentioning that he gave birth sometime last year.

Prior to the Instagram post, Halle had never spoken about her pregnancy publicly, save for a response from a Snapchat user last November who claimed she had a “pregnant nose.”

However, many media outlets were quick to point out that she appeared to start wearing loose clothing in photo shoots and on the red carpet towards the second half of 2023.

And despite playing a prominent role in the musical adaptation of The Color Purple, he was largely absent from the film’s press tour, with the exception of the Los Angeles premiere.

In the weeks since announcing Halo’s arrival, Halle has provided glimpses into her pregnancy with throwback clips, including footage of an underwater maternity shoot that feels straight out of The Little Mermaid. He also hinted at returning to the recording studio.

However, Hale’s heated interactions on social media may be a thing of the past. Then on Sunday, he wrote: “Hahaha, my hormones have been on 10 lately so I’m going to stay away from Twitter again.”
