When pop star, Halsey, announced her pregnancy in January of 2021, lots of people immediately began wondering about the identity of her unborn child’s father.

5. He Has A Large Social Media Following
Alev may not be as well-known as Halsey, but he does have a pretty solid following on social media. At the moment, he has more than 91,000 followers on Instagram alone. This number will likely increase once he and Halsey started to be a little more open about their relationship.
