While Halle Bailey has been in a relationship with DDG for more than a year, she is known for keeping her life extremely private, having also kept her pregnancy under wraps. In an interview with British Vogue in 2022 she revealed that “experiencing deep love for the first time in my life is something I feel has opened a whole new world for me creatively.” She added, “I like all of the scary feelings that come with that. I like the suspense, the not knowing what’s going to happen, and I feel like that’s what I’m supposed to be going through in womanhood.”

Fresh off the success of playing Young Nettie in the film adaptation of The Color Purple, Bailey is also gearing up for the launch of her debut solo album, following her EP ‘Angel’. Speaking to Cosmopolitan, Bailey shared that the album is inspired by her “first, deep, deep real love,” referring to her relationship with DG. “Love has been a really big one for me too, because that’s something I’m experiencing for the first time, and it’s, like, ‘whoa’ in your brain. It’s just fireworks, a spark for creativity,” she added.
