Halle Bailey is taking a stroll down memory lane.

The singer and actress, 23, shared a post on X, formerly Twitter, on Sunday, in which she posted two photographs of herself — one from when she was pregnant with her baby son, Halo, and another of herself holding the infant in her arms.

“Before vs after,” the new mom captioned the post, adding a single emoji of a heart with an arrow going through it.

In the images, Bailey, who shares her son with boyfriend DDG, posed for selfies in front of a wall mirror, wearing the same pink outfit. In the “before” photo, her large baby bump could be seen, while the “after” shot showed her cradling Halo in her arms.

Bailey announced the birth of her first baby on Instagram in December 2023. At the time, she shared a photo of her manicured hand holding that of a tiny hand with a gold bracelet etched with the name “Halo.”

“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 😉🤣♥️,” Bailey captioned the sweet post.


In an exclusive conversation with PEOPLE earlier this year, Bailey opened up about how she and DDG picked out a name for their baby boy.

“It was actually my boyfriend’s idea,” Bailey said of her son’s moniker. “He’s the one who came up with his name.”

“We just agreed, and we loved it. I love the name Halo,” continued The Little Mermaid star.

As for whether or not there is a connection between her child’s name and the song of the same name that mentor Beyoncé released off of her I Am… Sasha Fierce album in 2008, Bailey teased, “He for sure has a theme song.”
