Halle Bailey Excited After Getting Her Own Little Mermaid Doll: “BRB Gonna Go Cry Now!”

Halle Bailey Excited After Getting Her Own Little Mermaid
Doll: “BRB Gonna Go Cry Now!”

Halle Bailey just marked another major milestone in her journey as a Disney Princess.

The 22-year-old actress, who plays Ariel in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney’s 1989 animated classic The Little Mermaid, took to Instagram Monday to gush over the doll version of her character as the red-headed mermaid.

“I have something really exciting to reveal to you all. I’m gonna cry,” Halle said in the Instagram video.

“This is the new Little Mermaid doll!! I’m literally choking up because this means so much to me. And to have one that looks like me, that’s my favorite Disney character, is very surreal.”

And look, she even has my mole! See?” she continued.

The Ariel doll also has the same red hair and tail that Halle Bailey sports in the movie.

“And the hair, and the tail…I’m just stunned, so I don’t quite know what to do with it, but I’m gonna steal this and take it home.”

Halle’s post was met with excitement and congratulatory messages. “IM BUYING 100 OF THEM!!!” wrote her sister, Chloe Bailey.

“you beautiful, deserving gorgeous soul ???❤” wrote singer/songwriter Raye.

Even the iconic Barbie brand wrote: “Well deserved ?❤.”

Halle added in her IG post that “the little girl in me is pinching herself right now.”

“I have my own Little Mermaid Ariel doll!!! I can’t believe how much she captures my version of this iconic character ??brb gonna go cry now,” she added.

Late last year, Halle opened up in an interview with E! News about shaking up the pressure she initially felt to do the character justice for her younger self and the Little Mermaid fans.

“I think that before I started filming, I did feel some nerves naturally because the film is so important to so many people,” she said.

“The fact that all these little Black and Brown babies are going to be able to feel like they’re being represented is really special to me. I know that if I had that when I was younger, it would have changed a whole lot for me and my perspective on who I am as an individual.”

The Little Mermaid is set to hit theaters on May 26, while the newest Mattel creation is set to be available on shelves this spring.
