We don’t blame you if you’ve been totally obsessed with Halsey lately – she’s been around for a while but how much do you know about the ‘Without Me’ singer?

Chubby baby in the middle is Dante. He’s 13 years old today! Holy HELL where does time go. Happy birthday DJ. You are the brightest, coolest, calmest kid I know. You are all the best parts of me and your brother, and none of the bad. You’re artistic, intelligent, kind, funny, empathetic, and I believe you’ll change the world some day. I’m sorry I’ve missed birthdays, and Christmases, and basketball games but I work hard every single day to make sure you have a better life (and all the sneakers u can dream of). Everything I do is because of you, and because I hope to give you all of the opportunities you deserve in this life. Have a sick fucking birthday little man. I love you. ❤️
Halsey’s father, Chris Frangipane, is African-American with some Irish ancestry and her mother, Nicole, is of Italian and Hungarian descent.
