19-yr-old 'Ellen star' Sophia Grace reveals her boyfriend's reaction to pregnancy
ESSEX, ENGLAND: Sophia Grace Brownlee, who appeared on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' as a five-year-old, has spilled the beans on how her boyfriend of more than two years reacted to the news of her being pregnant. Sophia gained fame in 2011 after appearing alongside her cousin Rosie McClelland on the talkshow.
In a YouTube video shared on Saturday, October 22, the 19-year-old revealed that she was five months pregnant. While speaking to E! News, Grace said that she likes to keep some parts of her life to herself, including her boyfriend. She said, "Because I have always been in the spotlight, I feel like I want something just to keep to myself."
Even though she shared the details of the happy news in the public domain, she is still keeping her boyfriend's identity under wraps. However, the star opened up about how her partner reacted. Grace said, "Obviously both of us were quite shocked at the start and also overwhelmed because he's young also," adding, "But now that we're getting used to it, we're both really excited."
Sophia believes that her partner will be a great father since she feels they've grown up together. "It will definitely change us into proper adults and then we can grow up together and have a family." When asked if her boyfriend will step into the public eye in the future, Grace said that she'd be "completely happy to share him" and make him a part of her videos, "But I feel like when he's confident enough to be in them, then maybe we could do that."
Meanwhile, Grace's pregnancy at an early age doesn't mean she supports early motherhood. "Most people are like, ‘You should have babies when you're 30 and you're married and you live in your own house,' which is completely fine," she said. "As long as you feel ready and it's something that you're happy about, then it's really no one else's problem."
In her announcement video, Grace said, "I can't wait to share this journey with you guys and definitely have lots of different content from what I usually have."
Showing her baby bump to the camera, the 19-year-old said, "At the moment, it is sort of sticking out a little bit, definitely more than it usually does. It's kind of swollen a little bit. So this is what I look like at five months." The star also shared sonogram photos and said that everything was looking good for her and her baby.
Grace added that new videos would be posted every Saturday and also teased that the next video would be the gender reveal.
