The Russian teenager who became viral after claiming to have been impregnated by her ten-year-old boyfriend has now revealed she is expecting a girl.

14-year-old Darya and her 10-year-old boyfriend Ivan (Vanya) were seen in a video that she posted to her 119,000 followers, sharing the gender of the unborn child, The Sun reports.

The large balloon -- bearing the words 'Boy or Girl?' -- was popped by Ivan before it unleashed several pink balloons and the pair embraced and kissed. Darya captioned the video "Little Karolinkochka," which is a Russian fond name for Karolina.

The pregnant teenager, hailing from the town of Zheleznogorsk in Russia, raised eyebrows across the world after she claimed the father of her child was a "pre-pubescent" youngster during an appearance on Russian TV. Darya also shared photos of her 20-weeks-pregnant belly.

However, several medical experts find it hard to believe 10-year-old Ivan is the biological father. “There cannot be sperm cells. He is still a child," Dr Evgeny Grekov, who examined Ivan, said. “We re-checked the laboratory results three times so there cannot be any mistake.”

The TV show also revealed the faces of the children with parental permission, after they have been at the center of a case that has sparked deep controversy in Russia.

According to the report, Ivan and his parents agreed to reveal the results of his medical examination to millions of viewers when the children were out of the studio. That said, Darya remains firm that she wants to keep the baby and is already prepared to give birth via C-section.

The kids are understood to have been friends since they were younger, albeit they attend different schools in the Krasnoyarsk Territory in Siberia. When the pregnancy came to light, authorities launched an investigation with assistance from Darya's school.

"On January 13, 2020, the police received information from doctors of the Federal State Budget Healthcare Institution of the city of Zheleznogorsk that a 13-year-old schoolgirl was pregnant," a police spokesman said, per the report. "The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation for the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the Republic of Khakassia have launched an investigation and a decision will follow."

There were multiple reports in February claiming Darya had conjured up the story about Ivan being the father, when she actually became pregnant after being raped by a 15-year-old acquaintance. But Darya has since rubbished those claims, telling her thousands of followers of social media that reports of her being raped were "complete nonsense."

Furthermore, she argued that there had been no DNA test to confirm the baby's paternity. Meanwhile, law enforcement and the Russian Investigative Committee are yet to comment on reports that a 15-year-old was put under house arrest in connection with the rape claim. No one has been charged, and no criminal investigations have been announced as yet.

Earlier this month, Darya claimed it was "love at first sight" with Ivan. “A friend of mine introduced us and two days later we started dating," Darya recalled on TV. "Ivan said he was in love with me. We tried to spend as much time together as we could."

"We like walking down the streets holding hands and kissing," she added.
