Halle Bailey, known for her role in “The Little Mermaid,” recently responded to criticism on social media regarding her decision to keep her pregnancy a private matter.
The actress and singer, who welcomed her first child with rapper DDG in December 2023, addressed a user on the platform X who accused her of “gaslighting” fans by not sharing details about her pregnancy.
Bailey clarified that she never lied or explicitly mentioned her pregnancy, except for making a light-hearted joke about her nose. In a post on Sunday, the 23-year-old expressed her confusion over the negativity, stating, “I never lied or even said anything about it honey , making a joke about my nose was the farthest i went . i’ll never understand why you are mad i protected my own peace, wouldn’t you do the same?”
She also announced her intention to share pictures of her son, emphasizing that she feels comfortable doing so now that he is safely here. Bailey added a lighthearted note, encouraging those uninterested in seeing the photos to simply “keep scrolling” and sending blessings to her followers.
In a second tweet, Bailey acknowledged her recent heightened hormonal state and humorously mentioned her plan to take a break from Twitter. She concluded with a message of love for her fans.
The user who prompted Bailey’s response claimed that fans were “annoyed” by her alleged deception and later desire to share every detail. They accused Bailey of shading people and called them desperate, suggesting a change in her approach.
Previously, Bailey had addressed questions from fans on Snapchat, explaining that she aimed to have a beautiful, private, and healthy time during her pregnancy. She expressed gratitude to her followers for their kindness and understanding.
Reflecting on the period leading up to her child’s birth, Bailey revealed that she consciously stayed off social media to maintain her sanity. Despite acknowledging fans’ awareness of her pregnancy, she opted to keep a low profile during that time.
