Without the gaze of the public, it appears Bailey quietly gave birth to a baby boy. It's not clear when.

"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," the Atlanta-born star posted late Saturday night.

The baby sported a gold bracelet with the word "Halo" engraved on a plate.

"Welcome to the world my halo," Bailey continued. "The world is desperate to know you."

Bailey and her boyfriend, whose given name is Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr., have reportedly been together since early 2022.
