Halsey28, and their boyfriend and father to their one son, Alev Aydin, go strong! The duo was spotted enjoying some tortilla chips at Tere’s Mexican Grill in Los Angeles while a lunch appointment on Thursday, October 27. The “Without Me” singer looked relaxed in a casual combo of a graphic white tank and baggy, off-white pants that appeared to have paint splatters on them. They paired the casual fit with black rain boots, despite the sun shining without a drop of rain in sight.
After their date, the parents hugged, with Halsey hugging Alev from behind. His outfit, consisting of black raw-hem jeans, black boots and a white printed long sleeve, was on full display as the singer nestled into him. He smiled as he wrapped his arms around his partner.
Halsey announced their pregnancy with her now 15-month-old son Edner in January 2021 and revealed Alev (39) as the father. While many fans thought their relationship was new, the couple had been together for several years but had almost completely hidden their romance from the spotlight. The first trace of their relationship on social media came in 2019, when Halsey invited Alev, a filmmaker, to a Los Angeles Lakers game. Alev posted a photo of them on Instagram and wrote: “When I did a really cool thing that I’ll probably never be able to do again – thank you so much @iamhalsey for the experience at the court. The only one not on us phones aren’t, actually watch the game.”
The lovebirds then got matching tattoos on their feet in June 2020. They Yucca Valley, California based tattoo artist Amanda Owley posted about the experience, revealing that the couple had the word “seeds” inked on them. “I met the two sweetest people today. Ashley and Alev. You may know her better as HALSEY @iamhalsey is “Seeds” for planting seeds,” she wrote in the caption. “She said this is cosmically the best week to plant seeds in your life. I agree.”
Halsey first opened up about their private relationship in August 2021, just weeks after giving birth to their first child together. “Alev and I have been very good friends for four years. And when the stars aligned, our relationship became romantic and it was pretty clear that he and I were both like, ‘Oh, my god! You’re the person I’m supposed to start a family with,’” she recalls Allure.
“Nobody knew I was dating anyone,” they reflected. “As if people are entitled to an update, like, ‘I met someone, we’re going on dates, it’s getting serious, they’ve moved in, we’re planning a kid, we’re having a baby, we’ve had a baby, this is the generation… I signed up to give my whole life away; my loved ones didn’t.”
