Halsey took to Instagram to announce she is pregnant with her first child. The 26-year-old singer immediately became a trending topic on Twitter after 49,100 fans mentioned her name via the app.
In the first of three photos, the "You Should Be Sad" hitmaker stunned in a knitted bra top that was multicolored. The item of clothing featured thin straps that went around her neck. The low-cut attire showed off her decolletage as well as her growing baby bump. She teamed the look with loose-fitted light blue jeans that had a rip down each leg. Halsey left the bottoms unbuttoned and went barefoot for the occasion. She is known for sporting different hairstyles and opted for very short brunette hair. The entertainer accessorized with earrings and showed off the numerous tattoos inked on her arms.
The MTV Video Music Award winner sat down while posing in front of two silk sheets. She curled her feet up and raised one hand to her forehead. Halsey gazed directly at the camera lens with a smile and was clearly glowing.
In the next slide, the talented songstress stood up and went shirtless. Halsey was captured side-on and covered her chest with her right hand while placing the other lightly on her lower back. She pushed one leg forward and rested her foot on tiptoes. Halsey looked over her shoulder and gave fans a view of her bump from another angle.
In the third and final frame, she kneeled down and covered her chest with both hands.Halsey kept the caption simple and put "surprise" with a baby bottle, rainbow, and baby angel emoji. She also credited the photographer Sam Dameshek.
