Halsey Breastfeeds New Baby Ender
Halsey shared a new photo of her breastfeeding her newborn baby Ender with the caption “welcome to the jungle 🐆..”
The 26-year-old singer took the mirror selfie, sitting at a makeup table, wearing dark lipstick with her hair wrapped in blue fabric and held in place by clips. She holds one-month-old Ender, who’s dressed in a leopard print onesie, inspiring the caption and emoji.
The “Without Me” singer shares Ender with 37-year-old screenwriter boyfriend Alev Aydin. Ender was born on July 14, and Halsey called it “the most ‘rare’ and euphoric birth” in an Instagram caption.
Earlier this month, the singer shared another photo for World Breastfeeding Week. In it, they pose with baby Ender while sitting outside in the grass in the shade of a tree.
“#worldbreastfeedingweek 🤍 we arrived just in time!” they wrote in the caption of the post, garnering more than 4 million likes.
Halsey first announced her pregnancy with a post in January. In the past, the singer has been open about their surgeries for endometriosis, and in a 2016 Rolling Stone interview they spoke about their miscarriage and fertility issues.
“Here I am achieving this out-of-control life, and I can’t do the one thing I’m biologically put on this earth to do,” they said. “Then I have to go onstage and be this sex symbol of femininity and empowerment? It is demoralizing.”
The “Colors” singer — who uses she/they pronouns — has also been open about the way pregnancy and motherhood have shaped their gender identity.
“I’ve been thinking lots about my body. it’s strange to watch yourself change so quickly,” Halsey wrote in February. “I thought pregnancy would give me very strong, binary feelings about ‘womanhood’ but truly it has leveled my perception of gender entirely.”
