YouTube star Colleen Ballinger has revealed she’s pregnant in an emotional video.
The internet star, who’s best known for her character Miranda Sings, is expecting her second child with husband Erik Stocklin having suffered a miscarriage at the beginning of 2021.
Colleen broke down in tears as she learned the heartwarming news in a video montage, however, the joyous moment arrived after a number of negative tests.
Speaking to her fans, she shared that her baby joy came after losing a pregnancy just months ago.
‘I got pregnant at the beginning of this year and unfortunately I had a miscarriage and it was one of the most awful things I’ve ever been through, if not the most awful things I’ve ever been through,’ she said.
‘We knew that we immediately wanted to start trying to have another baby,’ Colleen added.
‘I took about a million pregnancy tests over the last few months, hoping that one would say positive, and every time it said negative, my heart shattered.
‘I feel so grateful that it only took a few months for me to get a positive test because I know that there are people out there who try for years and years and years and continue to see that negative test.
‘My heart goes out to everyone who has experienced that, or is currently experiencing that.’
Colleen added that her unborn baby is due in December and is healthy.
‘Everything going on in the uterus area is healthy,’ she said.
‘I am a disaster, but as long as everything in the uterus is good, that’s okay. I can handle it. I’ve been through this before.’
Colleen and Erik tied the knot in 2018 and share son Flynn who was born in December that same year.
