Sophia Grace Brownlee is getting ready to become a mom! The 19-year-old influencer, best known for her appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” back in 2011, announced her big news on her YouTube channel.
Sophia Grace Announces That She’s Expecting Her First Baby
In the video, she’s surrounded by pink and blue balloons as she explains why she decided to wait until now to announce her pregnancy. “I am here to tell you guys that I am pregnant. So I am 21 weeks today, and the reason why I left it so long is because I always want to make sure that everything’s completely fine and that everything’s safe,” she said. “So I decided to wait till this time to tell everyone because I thought that 20 weeks is like definitely safe and I have my 20-week scan and everything was fine, thank God.”
She explained that she was shocked to find out she was pregnant but is now used to it. “I got used to it now, and I’m super, super happy about it. And I can’t wait to share this journey with you guys and definitely have a lot of different content from what I usually have,” she explained. “I guess my channel might turn into something new, so I’m super excited.”
Sophia Grace Knows The Baby’s Gender But Will Announce That Later
“I actually know the gender because I actually found out but I am going to do a gender reveal for you guys in a separate video to this one so you can expect to see that soon on my channel,” she said. “The baby is currently the size of a banana which is quite funny because a banana isn’t even that small.” She said her belly isn’t too big just yet, and she’s halfway through the pregnancy already.
Brownlee is using this video as an opportunity to let her fans in on her pregnancy journey from this point moving forward. “So I thought I would just start from sort of the beginning till now, you guys, so the first thing that happened is when I was eight weeks, I decided to do the sneak peek early gender test,” she said. “I can confirm that it was done right because I’ve now had my 20-week scan and they also confirmed to me what the gender was and it was correct.” She went on to explain that she had a 12-week scan as well and held up a photo of the ultrasound.
Sophia Grace Was A Guest On “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” After Her Video Went Viral
The world was first introduced to Brownlee when she appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” back in 2011 with her cousin Rosie McClelland, now 16-years-old. The two performed Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” for the audience, after their video went viral. The original video now has more than 55 million views on YouTube. When DeGeneres’ show came to an end in May, the teen girls returned to perform the song again. In total, the girls appeared on the show more than 30 times in the past 10 years.
Last December, Brownlee told E! News she has a boyfriend but is keeping that part of her life quiet. “I keep that side of my life pretty private, but I do have a boyfriend and I’ve been with him for maybe two years, but I don’t post him on Instagram or anything,” she said. “Obviously, now that I’m older, that is a part of my life.”
