Ellen Child Star Sophia Grace Brownlee Is Expecting Her First Baby
Sophia Grace Brownlee—known for her 2011 cover of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show—is expecting her first baby. Just 9 years old when she captured the hearts of many Americans, her announcement has shocked many who are wondering where the time has gone!
Brownlee shared the happy news in a video posted to her YouTube channel on October 22. Standing amid a backdrop of pink and blue balloons, the singer talked about how shocked she was when she first found out about her pregnancy but how she has taken the surprise in stride.
“I got used to it now, and I’m super, super happy about it. And I can’t wait to share this journey with you guys and definitely have a lot of different content from what I usually have," Brownlee told her fans. “I do feel like people will be quite surprised,” the now 19-year-old continued. “But I’m happy about it, that’s all that matters.”
While Brownlee was initially feeling “very, very sick for a long time” at the start of her pregnancy, her delayed announcement about the baby—whose sex she knows but will reveal in a separate video—was held off until 21 weeks, at which time she felt comfortable and safe sharing the news.
Throughout the rest of the video, Brownlee talked about how it felt to hear her child’s heartbeat for the first time. “That was literally so cool because it’s like, mad to think that there’s literally another like, life inside of you,” Brownlee said. “So that was super cool.”
Our best to the new mom on her next adventure!
