Halsey is celebrating their birthday with a very special gift this year.

On Wednesday, the singer, 27, shared a sweet post to Instagram of their first baby, Ender Ridley, revealing the newborn's face for the first time. In the caption, Halsey called their baby "the best birthday gift there is."

 The artist welcomed their first baby with boyfriend Alev Aydin in July.

In the adorable shots, Aydin holds baby Ender, who is wearing a multicolored onesie and a blue beanie. Ender sweetly smiles in the first photo and looks away from the camera in the second.

Since welcoming Ender, Halsey has shared many moments as a new parent.

Last month, they told Zane Lowe that they "feel so full of gratitude" after giving birth to Ender, but admitted the experience has come with its own set of challenges, specifically when it comes to public perception.

"I got treated like a teen mom a lot of the times, you know what I mean? Where people were like, 'Oh my God, you're so young, and you have so much to do in your career, and you're not married and you're this,'" Halsey said, noting that the criticism triggered "feelings of shame." 

The singer also revealed that their pregnancy and life after giving birth inspired their most recent album, If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power.

In early July, just days before giving birth to Ender, Halsey posted the cover art for the album, which they described as "a concept album about the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth."
