Colleen Ballinger is a content creator known as Miranda Sings on YouTube. She has been on YouTube for ten years and has grown her channel by creating outrageous videos as the persona of Miranda, a girl who thinks she’s really good at singing and wears too much red lipstick. According to Colleen, the character Miranda started as way to poke fun at the conceited girls at her school that were who were believed that they were amazing singers. Sydney Jardina (11) said “I’ve always found her character really funny and enjoyable to watch, I’ve been a subscriber for a long time now.” Since then, her Miranda channel has reached 10 million subscribers on YouTube, along with multiple world tours and her own show on Netflix. It’s fair to say that Colleen has a lot going on in her life, one of these things being a new born baby!

In June 2018, Ballinger announced that she was expecting with her finance Erik Stocklin with a video titled, “I’m Pregnant.” She met her fiance when he played Patrick on her Netflix special, “Haters Back Off.” Since announcing that they were a couple earlier this year, the pair has since announced that were engaged and expecting their first child together. During the summer, they recorded a gender reveal video on Colleen’s Youtube channel, revealing that they are expecting a boy. Sydney Case said, “I’m so excited to find out what they name him, I can’t wait for her to reveal it!”  Throughout her entire pregnancy, Colleen vlogged every week about her last world tour and her troubles being pregnant. She expressed that she has been in constant pain in all the trimesters with vomiting, trouble walking, soreness, and even allergy symptoms all due to her pregnancy. Tiffany Ticlo expressed that “I feel so bad that she is in so much pain, it sucks that she can’t enjoy her pregnancy.” Along with feeling sick, her baby has proven to be an early developer, being bigger than he is supposed to be by three weeks. This has been a trend for the last nine months and it has continued up until his birth, coming three weeks before his due date.

Colleen announced that she was going into labor on twitter with a picture of her in a hospital bed posed with a starbucks cup. Fans expressed their excitement for the arrival of her baby and anxiously waited for an update from Colleen. Finally, on December 11th Colleen uploaded a picture to twitter of her and her newborn son, captioned “my little love.”  Since then, she has uploaded four new videos to her vlog channel all about the birth of her son and bringing him home from the hospital. The youtube star announced the name of her child, ‘Flynn Timothy Stocklin,’ explaining how the Irish name meant a lot to both of their families. Flynn is a name that has been passed down from generation to generation in Eriks family and Timothy is the name of Colleen’s father. Fans expressed their love for the name and Colleen’s new little family, wishing her the best and sending their love.
