Halle Bailey says that being a mother has given her the "greatest love" she has ever known as she celebrated her first Mother's Day since giving birth.



Halle Bailey says that being a mother has given her the "greatest love" she has ever known.

The 24-year-old actress revealed towards the end of 2023 that she and her partner DDG had welcomed a son called Halo earlier in the year and she took to social media on Sunday (12.05.24) - which was Mother's Day in the US - to share a brand new picture from her time in the hospital.

She wrote on Instagram: "my first mother’s day [heart emoji] the greatest love i’ve ever known."

The 'Little Mermaid' star kept the news that she was even expecting to herself and recently now admitted that there was "no way in hell" that she was ever going to share her "biggest joy" on such a large scale.

Speaking at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards, she said: "We are black women in entertainment, and although we signed up for the challenges of the spotlight, in this current climate, that spotlight burns brighter, hotter, and uninterrupted, whereas the scrutiny of its magnification leaves no concealment. I've learned from that spotlight over the past eight years.

"I've also, if I'm being honest, been burned by it, too, as we all have.

"There was no way in hell I was going to share the biggest joy of my world with anyone. Halo was my gift. He is the greatest blessing, and I had no obligation to expose him, me, or my family to that."
