Sophia Grace is expecting her first baby!
Grace—a former child star who first rose to fame after singing Nicki Minaj‘s “Super Bass” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show when she was only eight years old—shared the news that she is pregnant with her first child via her YouTube channel earlier today.
The YouTuber, now 19, shared the news while sitting in front of a backdrop of pink and blue balloons. She also let her fans know that she is about 21 weeks along in her pregnancy.
“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 in the video uploaded on Oct. 22, while revealing that she just had her 20-week ultrasound scan and “everything was fine, thank God.”
Grace also acknowledged that many of her fans might be surprised by the “unexpected” news, as she even admits she was “shocked” when she first found out.

While she didn’t mention the baby’s father at all in the video, she did says she is very “happy” about the news and asked her viewers to avoid commenting anything negative on the video. She also requested that they keep the vibes positive for the rest of her pregnancy.
“I’m so happy that I finally told everyone,” she said in the video, while noting that much of her content in the future will be shifted to cover more “baby content, maternity clothing content,” and things like that.
She also teased a gender reveal video, which she said will be dropping sometime soon.
Congratulations to the mom-to-be!
