YouTube star, Colleen Ballinger, better known for her comedic persona as Miranda Sings, announced on Monday that she is expecting her second baby after previously suffering a miscarriage earlier this year.
Ballinger stated, “I’m just so happy. I wanted this so bad. We’re so excited. We really were just trying and hoping for this. This is very exciting.”
She shared the news in a recent YouTube video, where she also opened up about the miscarriage. “I got pregnant at the beginning of this year and unfortunately, I had a miscarriage and it was one of the most awful I’ve ever been through, if not the most awful thing I’ve ever been through.” said Ballinger.
At 34 years old, Colleen is married to Erik Stocklin and are parents to their two year old son, Flynn Timothy.
Ballinger went on to say, “I feel so grateful that it only took a couple of months for me to get a positive test because I know that there are people out there that try for years and years and years and continue to see that negative test. This experience of loss and trying to get pregnant and getting pregnant so quickly has opened my eyes to the reality that so many women face all the time.”
The couple is expecting their second baby in December.
