The nineteen-year-old singer shot to fame when she appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
After a video of her and her cousin, Rosie McClelland, now sixteen, singing Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’ went viral, the pair were invited onto the talk show to perform their rendition live.
Following their debut, the adorable British pair soon gained worldwide recognition and regularly returned to feature on the show.
Since growing up in the spotlight, the cousin duo have continued to pursue their musical ambitions.
Grace even released a single this year called ‘Little Things’.
Now, all grown up, nineteen-year-old Sophia took to YouTube to announce some big news…
“I am here to tell you guys that I am pregnant,” she told her 3 million subscribers in the video, surrounded by pink and blue balloons.
“So, I am 21 weeks today and the reason why I left it so long is that I always want to make sure that everything’s completely fine and that everything’s safe.”
She added: “I was very shocked when I first found out. I’ve got used to it now and I’m super, super happy about it.”
Since then, fans have been scratching their heads over who Grace’s mystery partner is.
People have known the star for many years now, but few know that much about her partner.
“Because I have always been in the spotlight, I feel like I want something just to keep to myself,” Grace told E! News as to why not many people know about her boyfriend.
She admitted that keeping him anonymous helps their relationship and him be “something that I can keep private and that I can just enjoy myself and not have to share it with everyone.”
As well as keeping their relationship private…
Part of it also has to do with her boyfriend, not being ready for the public eye.
The singer said she’d be “completely happy to share him” and have him be in her videos.
“But I feel like when he’s confident enough to be in them, then maybe we could do that,” Grace added.
Though we haven’t had enough information about her boyfriend…
Grace did share something about how he reacted when she announced the news straightaway when she found out…
She revealed that he was happy when the news broke.
“Obviously both quite shocked at the start and also overwhelmed because he’s young also,” Grace said.
“But now that we’re getting used to it, we’re both really excited.”
Though some fans were happy for Grace, others didn’t shy away from voicing their opinion on her age and how she’s “too young” to have a baby.
When it came down to telling her parents, Sophia admitted that there was one parent who knew straight away.
“The first person that actually knew was my mom,” Sophia Grace told E! News. “My mom’s reaction obviously, at the start, she was a little bit like, ‘Oh wow.’ But she just got used to it straight away and she was always really happy and excited about it.”
However, she found telling her a dad the news to be a lot more difficult.
“Just in any normal family, it’s sort of a hard thing to tell your dad—when you’re a girl—that you’re pregnant, and I’m sure people understand it can be a little bit awkward,” Sophia Grace said.
“We were trying to think of a way to tell my dad,” she explains, but eventually, she didn’t end up telling him herself at all.
”I just got my mom to tell him because I couldn’t face doing it myself.”
Sophia was worried that her dad might see her age as an issue: ”I thought he might be like, ‘Maybe you’re a bit young,’ or something.”
Lucky for the 19-year-old, her dad was “really happy” about it, and she has the support of her family throughout.
Most recently, she took to Youtube to announce the baby’s sex in a video titled ”MY GENDER REVEAL.”
Where she announced that she will be having…
A baby boy!
“I am having a boy!” she announced. “When I first found out that I was having a boy, I honestly wasn’t shocked, because I just felt like from the start that I was going to be a boy mom.”

Grace was recently spotted doing some shopping in the Black Friday sales.
She was seen looking at baby clothes at the Bababoom luxury baby boutique in Essex, UK.
Grace reportedly left the store, carrying several bags in her hand.
She said she was due to give birth to her son in early March.
And revealed that she was excited to meet her baby.
Speaking to E! News, Grace said: “Considering I’ve always wanted to be a boy mum from the start, I am just very excited about everything in general, and very excited to see what he will look like.”
And now her wait is over!
The 19-year-old has shared the first photo of her newborn, a boy, on her Instagram.
She simply captioned the image “26.02.23,” her son’s birthdate in British format.
No news of his name as yet.
