Ever since the pandemic started, it seems like every other day, a new A-lister celebrity takes to Instagram to announce their pregnancy. We had gotten used to the routine and thought that we could no longer be surprised by any more celebrity motherhood news, but that was until Halsey joined the club.
Yep, that's right!
The 'Without Me' singer made the announcement on Instagram and Twitter on Wednesday morning. The post was so random and unceremonious that we really couldn't believe it. Some other reasons for our disbelief include that she wasn't in a very public relationship for some time now. She was so successful in keeping her baby bump away from prying eyes also contributes to the surprise.
Halsey is pregnant. Her Instagram post did more than announce her impending motherhood; she also used it to let the world know about her relationship with Alev Aydin. That's her boyfriend and baby daddy! Who is this mysterious man?

He's an actor, director, producer, and screenwriter
Alev Aydin is a quadruple threat. Open his IMDB, and you'll find out that not only has he acted in series like General Hospital in 2008 and 2010 but that he also has great experience working behind the camera.
In 2013, Aydin appeared in a drama film called Lonely Boy. What's interesting is that he was also the writer and executive producer of the film. His most recent work includes Small Shots, which is 2017 comedy series about two friends trying to make it big in Hollywood. Aydin is credited as the creator, writer, and executive producer of the show.
Moreover, you'll also find his name in the credits for a short film called HipMen: Los Angeles. All of these projects would make his net worth pretty great. If you want to see more of his creative eye, we think his Instagram would be the best place to start. Aydin's feed is full of fascinating photos; these include travel pictures, movie stills, some selfies, and childhood snapshots.
He's known Halsey for a long time
Though we've just found out about Halsey and Aydin, it doesn't mean that the two don't have a history together. The truth is, the couple has known each other since 2018. This can be proven by a post, Aydin shared in March 2019. He posted a picture of him and Halsey at a Lakers game that took place in January of that year.
This is why it's safe to say that they've known each other for some time now. While they might have just been friends back then, the two started dating not too long ago. The first signs of romance appeared last June, when the two went out to get matching tattoos, now that's a classic celebrity romance rite of passage, isn't it?

The two got the word 'seeds' tattooed on their feet, perhaps hinting at their plans to start a family together? Later in 2020, Halsey and Aydin were also spotted shopping for art supplies in L.A. Let's not forget the sweet shoutout Halsey gave Aydin on New Year's Eve saying, "grateful for you this year and every year, sweets." She also added the phrase, 'I love you so much' in Turkish on top of the photo collage.

He's a Pisces
Born on March 17 Aydin is a Pisces, which makes him extremely compatible with Halsey, who is a Libra. Basically, Pisces + Libra = match made in heaven! According to the Elite Daily, Pisces and Libra are both loyal and amiable. They'll make sure to go to extreme lengths to keep their loyalty intact. They'll also adjust themselves according to other people's schedules, availability, and time frames. Together, they make a power couple.

When it comes to Alev Aydin's age, little is known about that topic. But if we have to guess, we'd say he's around 30, the late 20s or early 30s perhaps. Aydin has a brother, Coskun, and his family is from Turkey. Time and again, he has reminded his followers on Instagram that he's proud of his heritage and roots.
He's outspoken about racial inequality and injustice
Halsey has never shied away from speaking about critical topics; we all know she's a strong feminist and that she also believes in racial equality and justice. Her boyfriend, we're glad to say is also the same. Aydin demonstrated his beliefs when protests over police brutality started all over the country. "Aside from the orgs listed (tagged) here, there are others also in need of every dollar in their efforts to undo centuries-old systems that have dismantled Black communities for generations and disenfranchised so many," he wrote and let the world know where he stood on the matters of police brutality and racial injustice.

"Police PACs have used their money for decades to wield an ungodly and egregious amount of influence in the political space, which is why (among a long history of the perpetual atrocity at the hands of police) the entire country burns as the leadership in M.N. refuses to arrest the three other officers involved in George Floyd's murder. Please use your money in aid of these organizations and help them fight this fight. Help them win. Please share this with others, and add it to the list. And as always, F— Donald Trump," he added.
