We have double good news for Haters Back Off fans! Colleen Ballinger aka Miranda Sings, who is the star of the Netflix show of title Miranda Sings Show and her self-titled YouTube series, has revealed that she is engaged to boyfriend Erik Stocklin and expecting her first child with him.
The 31-year-old internet personality took to her YouTube channel on Friday, June 29 to announce her pregnancy and engagement.
The video she shared showed a moment of April when she tested her pregnancy, followed by a pregnancy milestones montage from the past two months.
The actress directly talks to her fans and tells them she had intended to “Kylie Jenner all of y’all” and kept the news private but her baby bump became grownup faster than average and became noticeable because of her diminutive stature.
She says in the video,
I am 13 and a half weeks pregnant. I can’t believe I’m saying this out loud to a camera. This has been the hardest secret to keep from you guys … I’ve never cared about anything more. Like, I have a baby! I’m so pregnant!
The comic actress later goes into her relationship with his 35-year-old boyfriend-turned-boyfriend, who is also an actor best known for his appearance in Stalker, Mistresses and Haters Back Off.
As you guys know, Erik and I have kept our relationship pretty private. Erik is not an Internet person. He’s so shy and sweet, and social media and the Internet [are] not really his thing. So we’ve kept our relationship extremely private.
We started out as friends, and that turned into best friends in the whole world, and then that slowly turned into more. But when it turned into more, we very quickly realized, ‘This is my person.’ We knew we wanted to be married, we wanted to have a family together, we wanted to grow old together. This is what we want, this is what we need. It just is a perfect fit.
Erik, who confirmed his relationship with Miranda in early June 2018, will be walking down the aisle for the first time but as for the YouTube star, it will be second.
She was previously married to filmmaker Josh Evans. They tied the knot in 2015 but just after a year of their marriage, they got a divorce.
