Bailey also opened up to PEOPLE on Thursday about the story behind her son’s name.
“It was actually my boyfriend's idea,” The Little Mermaid star said of her baby’s name. “He's the one who came up with his name.”
“We just agreed, and we loved it,” she continued. “I love the name Halo."
Responding to whether there was a connection between her son’s name and her mentor Beyoncé’s song "Halo," Bailey said with a laugh, “He for sure has a theme song.”
Speaking about motherhood, the artist also told PEOPLE that “it's so exciting, this new role for me,” adding that she's “obsessed with my baby boy” and “he's the sweetest angel in the world."
In January, Bailey revealed that she had given birth to her first baby. In an Instagram post at the time, she shared a photo of her holding her baby’s tiny hand, with the little boy wearing a gold bracelet engraved with the name, "Halo."
"Even though we’re a few days into the new year, the greatest thing that 2023 could have done for me, was bring me my son.. welcome to the world my halo 🥰👼🏽 ✨the world is desperate to know you 😉🤣♥️," Bailey captioned the post.
"Me and Halle had a baby together,” he said in the video. “I wouldn't chose no other person in the world to have a child with. We learning. She's a great mom. Like it's crazy. She's amazing.”
