Brittany Xavier, the popular vlogger and TikTok star, has just given birth to another child. The 34-year-old Californian native looked very pleased as she shared a photo of her bundle of joy on Instagram.
“These past 8 days have been a whirlwind in the best way possible. We’re completely obsessed and so in love with our new baby girl” remarked Xavier. Baby Poppy Wren Xavier came in at 7 lbs., 8 oz., and measured 21.25 inches long in height. She looked pretty while sleeping in her mother’s hands.
Fans and friends were ecstatic with the news as they sent in streams of congratulatory messages to welcome the newborn.
“Ahhhhhhh!!! Congrats my love!! So happy for you guys, love emoji,” commented Paola Alberdi. The long bumpy pregnancy ride has finally come to an end, and the little joys of motherhood await.
Gender Name and Baby reveal
The baby’s name was coined from an unanticipated idea when Brittany disclosed her pregnancy to her husband, Anthony.
“I told my husband I was 4 weeks pregnant by taping a poppy seed to a card, and ever since we called the baby our little poppy seed,” disclosed Brittany.
“During our gender reveal in February, we knew that if it was a girl her name would be Poppy, and we never considered other names. It felt meant to be. Her middle name, Wren, is after Anthony’s great grandmother who he was very close to while growing up before she passed. This is our way of honoring her legacy.”
Xavier celebrated the gender reveal ceremony at The Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena. The intimate get-together was a show of the love the family shared with fans online.
“This was about taking everything in, being present, at the moment, and enjoying this incredibly happy day,” said Xavier. “It was very intimate; I only invited around twenty people, some of whom flew out for this. This was my first event post-COVID, so I hadn’t seen many of them since before the pandemic began. Just having everyone together in that room and knowing that the baby is coming was emotional.”
Pre-pandemic, Xavier was fully focused on creating content for her social media channels, coupled with her busy international schedule, there was really no time to do anything else.
Then quarantine came and she had all the time in the world to spend cozy moments with her husband, Anthony. It’s not surprising that they started making baby plans.
“We weren’t traveling as much, and that made us reevaluate what we wanted,” she shared on the phone from California. “Once we were able to sit down and think, we realized that this was the perfect time for us to start trying for a baby. [The pause] was a blessing because I don’t know if we could have reached that conclusion if we were still going 24/7.”
All that quality time led to the TikTok video, announcing she was pregnant with her second child. “We’re so happy and excited for this new journey together as a family,” Xavier shared. “To be able to bring along our online family with us is such a blessing.”
Over the next few months, fans viewed eagerly as she tweaked her wardrobe to prepare for her summer baby.
“It was a challenge,” she says. “I was so used to wearing my high-waisted pants, trousers, and denim, but then I started showing, and I was thrown off because there weren’t that many cool brands making the fit of the pants I liked in a maternity size. [As a result] I’ve embraced more dresses, which was fun; I think I’ve been in the dress section more during this pregnancy than I have ever before.”
Next was the baby shower which was covered an in-depth video posted to her platform then came the little bundle of joy the following month.
Is Xavier Back To Work?
In a post on her YouTube channel, Xavier discussed motherhood and how she was tending to Poppy.
“As a teenage mom, I had so much to learn about this whole process, plus I was in school and had a full-time job. This time around, I feel a lot more grounded. I’ve been able to learn from my past in order to make the present as best as possible.”
“It was a priority for me to take a couple of weeks off from work after I gave birth so I could fully tend to Poppy and be completely in the moment,” adds the social media star, who posts weekly about parenthood on “I’m lucky because in a sense I work from home, but regardless of that, I didn’t even want to consider it. My priority first and foremost is Poppy.”
It probably would be a while before she takes up a serious gig. Right?
Xavier’s Earlier Pregnancy
This is not the first time Xavier would be getting pregnant. Her first daughter, Jadyn, arrived during her teenage years.
She then took a break from school and work to take care of Jadyn. The extra responsibility fueled her drive to succeed. Xavier eventually went back to school full-time, leaving Jadyn at home to be nursed by her grandmother
“It was more imperative for me to not rely on anyone and to make sure I was making an income for her so that I could support her and we could be financially independent – that was a huge priority for me. I had her at 20 so it was hard because my friends were going through a time where everyone was going out. I was so young.” Xavier revealed this in her YouTube video titled “My Story of Being a Young Mom.”
Jayden is currently aged fourteen and has recently blown up as a viral daughter/ mother duo on the TikTok platform.
