Halle Bailey, one half of the musical duo Chlöe x Halle, has always been private about her dating life. However, her dating life has become the topic of discussion ever since she hung out with the rapper and YouTuber DDG early in 2022.


In 2019, singer Halle Bailey was cast as Ariel in the live remake of "The Little Mermaid." Two years after the production began, Disney showed fans the first footage at the D23 Expo.

According to Rob Marshall, the film's director, the composer had a rare combination of innocence, substance, heart, spirit, and youth, making her the perfect fit for the role after an extensive search.

Bailey's career began with her elder sister after they sang the cover of some songs on YouTube. Soon, Beyoncé discovered and signed them up to her record label.

After joining the record label, they released their debut album, "The Kids Are Alright," in 2018. That same year, she landed a permanent role on "Grown-ish."

Since achieving fame, the composer and actress who starred in "Last Holiday" had kept her relationships private until 2022. However, after months of romance rumors, she is speaking up about her relationship.


Who Is DDG, Halle Bailey's Boyfriend?

Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr. is a rapper, YouTuber, and entrepreneur known as DDG or PontiacMadeDDG. He was born on October 10, 1997, in Michigan.

The high school valedictorian dropped out of Central Michigan University because he was making over $25,000 per month on YouTube. He then moved to Hollywood to pursue an entertainment career.


The rapper released a couple of singles in 2016, an EP in 2017, signed to Epic Records in 2018, followed by his first album that same year.

One year later, he released his second album, "Valedictorian," followed by his third album, "Die 4 Respect," in 2021. In March 2022, he made history by becoming the first rapper to go all the way to space to shoot a music video.


How Long Have DDG and Halle Bailey Been Together?

DDG and Bailey were first seen publicly on New Year's Day in 2022. They had attended Usher's Las Vegas concert and sparked dating rumors.

Before the month ended, the rapper made a vlog revealing he had taken his girlfriend on an underwater date without mentioning her name or confirming their relationship status.


On Bailey's birthday in March 2022, the rapper made their relationship Instagram official. He posted a series of pictures and a video of both of them, and in the caption, he wrote:

"Happy Birthday to the beautifulest, the flyest, the sweetest ❤️ love you forever 🥺💎 @hallebailey."

Bailey also loved the post, dropped a few heart emojis, and commented that DDG was about to make her cry again. As fans congratulated them, some wondered about the origin of their relationship.


In an interview with Essence, Bailey explained how they crossed each other's paths. The singer and actress said:

"I've been a fan of his for years. I grew up being on YouTube and would always see the young Black creators and was constantly inspired by them. He was one of them."

Bailey first noticed DDG in 2015, but with her successful career, she forgot about him until she gravitated to a song he released. Coincidentally, the rapper sent her a message, and they reconnected.


She confirmed her love for the rapper, and in June 2022, they made their official red carpet debut as a couple when they attended the 2022 BET Awards.

Bailey and DDG recently took their relationship one step further when she appeared as his lover in his music video, "If I Want You." She also took to her Instagram page to promote the video by asking her fans to watch it.


What Is Known about Halle Bailey's Ex-boyfriends?

There is no information about who she has dated in the past. This is because the actress has been very secretive about her love life before DDG.

Halle Bailey may be a little mermaid, but she is one mermaid that knows what she wants. Her big sister revealed that the actress prefers guys with confidence and swag when speaking about her kind of man.
