As we gear up to see the actress/singer make a splash as The Little Mermaid, we have a few questions about her current relationship status. Here's the latest on the Halle Bailey boyfriend sitch...

While we've sussed out Halle Bailey's perfume of choice (spoiler alert, it's one of the best floral perfumes around!), fans have been growing curious about her love life, specifically, if Halle and rapper DDG are still an item.

The pair have been linked since March 2022 and after they stepped out on the red carpet together at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party, interest has only grown around the couple. So, here's everything we know about Halle's current dating sitch...

Who is Halle Bailey's boyfriend now?

So, are DDG and Halle Bailey still dating? Yes, it would appear so!

The pair were first linked in January 2022 after they were spotted attending one of Usher's Las Vegas, before confirming their relationship in March after DDG (real name Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr.) shared a very loved-up birthday tribute to the songstress on Instagram.

In his post—which has since been deleted—he wrote: "Happy Birthday to the beautifulest, the flyest, the sweetest ❤️ love you forever 🥺💎 @hallebailey" (as per Cosmo.) After his public declaration, Halle then went on to star in one of DDG's music videos for 'If I Want You' in August 2022.

Since then, they've made a number of red-carpet appearances together, though split rumors did being to circulate in February 2023. Thankfully, the pair all but quashed the speculation after rocking up to the Vanity Fair Oscar's after-party (where sheer dresses were the moment!) together in March 2023.

Along with their cute red carpet appearances, the pair are also very supportive of each other's careers, especially when it comes to Halle's role as Ariel in the live-action remake of Disney's The Little Mermaid. DDG told People: "I'm very proud of her. And I'm just happy to see it. I feel like sometimes I'm even more excited than anybody else. Just seeing it and seeing everything that she dreamed of coming to life, it's really dope."

On April 24, 2023, Halle also shared a glimpse into their relationship during an interview with British Vogue, where she said: "Experiencing deep love for the first time in my life is something I feel has opened a whole new world for me creatively.

"What it feels like to love someone other than your family, like somebody you may not have known two years ago but now they’re the center of your world. I like all of the scary feelings that come with that. I like the suspense, the not knowing what’s going to happen, and I feel like that’s what I’m supposed to be going through in womanhood." Seems like Ariel really had found her Eric!

Halle Bailey's dating history: who has she dated?

Bar her relationship with DDG, Halle has not publicly dated anyone else that we know of and seems to prefer keeping her love life, understandably, very much on the DL.
