The Bad At Love hitmaker is expecting her first child with partner Alev Aydin this summer and she opens up to the beauty magazine about being judged for moving so fast with the Turkish filmmaker.

The couple were first pictured out together in exclusive Dailymail.com photos in October 2020 but are rumored to have sparked their romance several months earlier when they got matching tattoos in June.
In January 2021 Halsey surprised fans by announcing her pregnancy.
‘The judginess started from the beginning,’ she told Allure.
‘Alev and I have been really good friends for four years. And when the stars aligned, our relationship became romantic and it was pretty evident that he and I were both like, “Oh, my gosh! You’re the person I’m supposed to start a family with.” A lot of people had opinions about that.’
Halsey – real name Ashley Nicolette Frangipane – kept quiet about her new romance, instead choosing to enjoy a quiet life during quarantine with her boyfriend.
‘Alev and I have been really good friends for four years. And when the stars aligned, our relationship became romantic and it was pretty evident that he and I were both like, “Oh, my gosh! You’re the person I’m supposed to start a family with.” A lot of people had opinions about that.’ Halsey said about her relationship with the Turkish filmmaker. Pictured here in May
‘I remember sitting in the car and being like, “I can never see him again. I like him too much to ruin his life and drag him into all this craziness.”‘ Halsey opened up about her doubts about turning her friendship with Alev into something romantic
‘Nobody knew I was dating someone,’ she explained. ‘As if people were entitled to an update, like, “I’ve met someone, we’re going on dates, it’s getting serious, they’ve moved in, we’re planning a child, we are having a baby, we had a baby, this is the gender….”‘
The Without Me singer added that she’s fiercely protective over the people she cares about the most.
‘I signed up to give my whole life away; my loved ones didn’t.’ she said.

Recalling a moment when one of the couple’s date nights ended dramatically, thanks to her being hounded by photographers, Halsey said it made her hesitant about exposing Alev to the reality of being in her life.

‘Part of the reason it took Alev and I so long to start dating was because I liked him so much,’ she told the magazine.
‘He was writing a movie about my life, a biopic, so we spent a lot of time together. One night we went somewhere really public together. As we were leaving, I got swallowed by a mob of paparazzi and fans and people wanting me to sign vinyls and whatever else. It was all very dramatic, like a movie scene.
‘I looked over my shoulder and he’s being pushed away from the mob and I was like, “Oh, my God, I didn’t even say goodbye!” I remember sitting in the car and being like, “I can never see him again. I like him too much to ruin his life and drag him into all this craziness.”‘
But, she added, ‘he swiftly reminded me I was being super melodramatic and he was like, “I don’t care. It’s not that big of a deal.”‘
