Sophia Grace, who first became famous when she was five and appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, said recently that she is five months pregnant.
“I am here to tell you guys that I am pregnant,” gushed the 19-year-old in a 7 minutes, 52 seconds video featuring a backdrop of pink and blue balloons. “So, I am 21 weeks today.”
Grace said she didn’t tell anyone until now because she wanted to be sure that both she and the baby are healthy.
“I’m sure a lot of you are going to be very shocked,” she added, “because it probably was unexpected but I was very shocked when I first found out.”
After telling her more than 3.3 million YouTube subscribers that she was pregnant, Grace said that she would now talk more about baby and maternity clothes in her videos. Grace also said that the baby is the size of a banana right now and hinted that she will show the baby’s gender in a future video.
Grace stood up at one point and showed off her “swollen” stomach. She also showed off two sonograms, one of which showed the baby sucking its thumb. At her 17-week checkup, Grace said she heard the baby’s heartbeat for the first time.
“That was literally so cool because it’s like mad to think there’s literally, like, another life inside of you,” she said. “So that was super cool.”
Grace also talked about how far along the pregnancy is and what she thinks about the so-called “morning sickness.”
“I do not know why they call it morning sickness because it lasted all day long!” she quipped.
Grace first got famous when she and Rosie performed Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” in pink tutus and tiaras in a video that went viral and was shown on Ellen in 2011. They were 8 and 5 years old at the time.
They came back in May and talked about their first show.
“My first memory, because I was obviously five years old, so I don’t remember a lot, but the first thing I remember obviously was Nicki Minaj coming out,” Rosie shared. “At that point I didn’t know who she was and then it clicked, ‘Oh Sophie’s singing this song, she must be Nicki Minaj, the one singing it.’”
Sophia Grace and Rosie later hung out with Drake on red carpets, had tea with Taylor Swift, met One Direction, and even wrote books. Even after all these years, the girls still remember DeGeneres in a good way.
“One of them was probably with Drake,” Sophia Grace said about her favorite memory. “Cause me and my dad have always been big fans. I saw him just casually coming down the GRAMMYs carpet when we were there, and I was like, ‘Drake, my dad loves you so much.’ And we had a chat with him. He ate some of our candy.”
