Musician and Influencer Sophia Grace Brownlee, announced on Saturday 22 October that she is expecting her first child.

Sophia got her first big break after she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2011 when she was 9 years old.

“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.”

The 19-year-old said that she was very shocked when she found out that she was expecting and understood that many of her followers may be surprised as the announcement was unexpected.

“I am five months so i only have four months left to go. I’ve already done practically more than halfway. I will show you my belly. It’s not too big at the moment but you can sort of see.

The mother-to-be said this test was followed by her first scan to check if everything was okay with her baby and that the baby was growing as it should.

“I was quite nervous with this scan because as you know, some of these scans can show problems with the baby but luckily mine went all good so thank God for that,” Sophia said in the video.

Sophia said she only got to hear her baby’s heart beat at 17 weeks and this was ‘cool’ to hear because she could not hear it at her 12 weeks scan.

“That was literally so cool because it’s like, mad to think that there’s literally another like, life inside of you. So that was super cool,” Sophia said.

The Can’t Sleep artist said that she is excited that she can finally share the news with everyone as she was very sick at the beginning of her pregnancy.
