Renowned Disney actress Halle Bailey, known for her roles in "The Little Mermaid" and "Grown-ish," is expecting her first child. The actress was recently spotted in Los Angeles, joyfully strolling through her neighborhood with her boyfriend, rapper DDG.

While the couple celebrates this new chapter in their lives, Halle's pregnancy has brought about significant changes in her career. Disney Studios, which was actively campaigning to nominate her for an Oscar for her exceptional performance in "The Little Mermaid," had to alter their plans upon learning of her pregnancy. Given the likelihood that Halle will be pregnant during the Oscars, Disney opted to withdraw her from Oscar consideration.

Rumors have also surfaced suggesting that Disney might not cast her in the sequel for "The Little Mermaid." These developments underscore the challenges women in the entertainment industry often face when it comes to pregnancy and the impact it can have on their careers.
