After months of speculation, bump-watching and rumors spreading like fire, the Little Mermaid star confirmed the birth of her first baby with rapper DDG. She calls him her “Halo.”

“The world is desperate to know you,” Halle captioned her Jan. 6  Instagram post. The new mother shared an adorable first photo of her son alongside the announcement.

The single image features her manicured fingers holding her son’s tiny hand with what appears to be DDG’s hand as well. The newborn is wearing a white, blue and gold printed garment with a gold chain bracelet that reads, “HALO.”

Uploaded an hour ago, Halle’s post has received more than 1 million likes. Halle writes, “Even though we’re a few days into the new year, the greatest thing that 2023 could have done for me was bring me my son.. welcome to the world, my halo 🥰👼🏽 ✨the world is desperate to know you 😉🤣♥️.”

The younger Bailey sister’s comments section is overflowing with well wishes, congratulations and cheers for the new bundle of joy.

DDG, whose real name is Darryl Dwayne Granberry, celebrated the birth of his son with a new song, “Darryl Freestyle.” He speaks on the strength of Halle and his new role as a father. DDG says, “Silver spoon kid, I know Halo don’t want for nothing/ He crying, his momma coming/ She stronger than Wonder Woman.”

As previously reported, Halle’s pregnancy rumors started in September 2023. Since then, fans watched Chloe Bailey’s sister like a hawk, whether the performer was on vacation, on a red carpet or just posting pictures on Instagram. 

Though the couple never officially responded to rumors, they did drop coy messages on social media. At one point, it seemed Halle responded with an Instagram caption writing, “minding my business…wbu?” DDG frequently seemed to respond to social chatter with tweets, Snapchat videos and status updates. 

With Halle’s new post, public speculation can be put to rest. And more importantly, the congratulations, love and attention for their adorable baby boy, Halo, can take over.

Congratulations, Halle and DDG on your new bundle of joy!
