Halle Bailey is continuing to open up with fans as she reflects on her recent pregnancy and journey in motherhood.
The New Mom Shares Video Of Her Maternity Shoot
On Monday, January 15, Bailey took to Instagram to share a video with fans. Additionally, the 23-year-old captioned her post, alluding that the footage was from her underwater-themed maternity photoshoot.
“🧜🏽♀️missing my belly already 💜but i obviously had to do underwater pics 😉” she wrote.
In the footage, Bailey donned two separate gowns.
The first appeared to be a light-colored dress made of thin material, which flowed gracefully as Bailey posed in the water, while the second seemed to be a silver ensemble that showed off Bailey’s baby bump.
Furthermore, the 23-year-old new mom appeared to add an unreleased song of hers as audio to the footage.
Check out the footage below.
Social Media Reacts
Social media users shared their reactions to Bailey’s shoot in The Shade Room’s comment section. Some continued to criticize the 23-year-old for showing off her pregnancy after keeping it private.
Instagram user @shelovecj wrote.
“At this point, I just want to know their motive of not showing anything acting like they didn’t want the attention, but now showing everything clearly wanting the attention… It’s cool we don’t need to see it no more 🙄
Instagram user @bigkiraboomin added.
“Halle please 😐 its old news now”
Others defended Bailey.
Instagram user @boobooo.kitty wrote.
“Girl yall mad in these comments 😂 let people do what they want with their life so what if she aint share it back then ! She can share it now as she pleases”
While Instagram user @gee2.srt added.
“these ‘we don’t care’ comments when y’all was playing detective her whole pregnancy is insane😭”
Instagram user @prncessj.ae wrote.
“I understand why she hid it , social media can bring so much negativity ppl can speak ill on her and the baby , stressing could harm her or the baby it’s definitely reason like this to keep a pregnancy hidden and show off after she’s had a peaceful and safe delivery so I get it for sure”
One user, @personataliy, even praised those closest to Bailey for keeping her pregnancy and the birth of her son private.
“Not one leaked photo. 👏👏 wow whoever is around her are truly heaven sent. She really did everything she wanted and not one messy tabloid article about it.”
