Halle Bailey has announced the birth of her baby boy, along with the sweetest name

Congratulations are in order for Halle Bailey and her partner, the rapper DDG, who just announced the birth of their first child together - a son.

2023 was a whirlwind of a year for the 23-year-old star, whose fame soared to new heights thanks to her leading role as Ariel in Disney's The Little Mermaid, which saw her nominated for a slew of awards.

However, according to Halle, her son's arrival was her biggest achievement of 2023, thanks to the heartfelt caption she accompanied her baby news with.

Taking to Instagram to share the sweetest snap of her holding her newborn's hand, the new mum wrote: "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."

Halle's announcement also included the name of her firstborn - Halo - and honestly, we can't think of anything cuter. And apparently, neither can her 7.8 million Instagram followers who flocked to the comments section to congratulate Halle and DDG on the birth. Plus, to compliment the little one's title.
