Who is Haley Giraldo, Pat Benatar’s daughter?
Haley Giraldo was born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 16 February 1985 – her zodiac sign is Aquarius and she holds American nationality. She is a social media personality, a model and an Instagram star, but perhaps best known for being the daughter of Pat Benatar, a famous American singer and songwriter.
Early life and education
Haley was raised alongside her sister Hana in Los Angeles by their mother, and their father Neil Giraldo who is a musician, record producer and a songwriter – their parents married in 1982, Neil being Pat’s second husband as she was married to her high school boyfriend Dennis Benatar from 1972 to 1979.
Haley didn’t get to spend a lot of time with her parents while growing up, as they were working most of the time, thus her sister and she were mostly raised by a woman who took care of them while their parents were away. Haley watched a lot of TV during her younger years, but became physically active at high school as she began playing various sports including soccer and badminton. After the launch of social media networks such as Facebook and Twitter, she created her own accounts, but didn’t become popular until opening her Instagram account.
Haley matriculated from high school in 2003, and decided not to enroll at a college but to work on her online career.
Haley is mostly popular for her Instagram account, which is currently followed by around 135,000 people, while she’s uploaded over 900 pictures onto it. Prior to marrying, she was mostly focused on sharing pictures of her attractive body, especially her breasts and buttocks, but since marrying has been focused on sharing pictures of her family. Haley’s sister Hana is also a model and a social media personality, and is a lot more popular on Instagram as she has gathered nearly 800,000 followers onto her account.
Haley is also active on her Twitter account which is currently followed by over 8,000 people – she joined in April 2009 when she was a lot more active, as she nowadays only tweets several times a week.
Haley launched her acting career in 2003, when she appeared in an episode of the series “Hollywood Squares”.
Love life and husband
Haley met her other half Matt Williams when they were doing a photoshoot together, and what appeared to be just a short relationship while they were working turned out to be a long-term association which then turned into a marriage. They dated for two years before Matt asked Haley to marry him in May 2016, and a year later, they exchanged vows in a small ceremony attended only by the two’s closest friends and family. About two years ago in 2018, Haley gave birth to their first daughter, and has uploaded numerous pictures of her onto her Instagram account – just recently at the beginning of 2020, she gave birth to their second daughter who can also be seen in her pictures on Instagram.
Before she began dating Matt, Haley was very secretive regarding her love life, and hasn’t talked about any boys she might had dated.

She likes to dress up and do cosplay, and doesn’t usually skip a single Halloween without a proper costume.
