She regularly featured her boyfriend, Global Boga, on social media.

The twenty-year-old, who's real name is Jeffery Frimpong, is also a professional dancer.

The couple were very much in love...

And they had the best news last year.

Earlier this year, Nicole announced she was pregnant.

In a YouTube video, she and Jeffrey made the announcement and they were both glowing with excitement and happiness.

The YouTuber was real with her pregnancy over the last few months...

And she would regularly post updates on social media - including the moment they found out they were having a baby boy.

And Jeffrey has lost his soulmate and baby - something that nobody should ever have to endure.

Life is truly unfair...

And this is an utterly devastating loss.

Now, more heartbreaking details have emerged following her untimely death.

Just days before she passed away, the internet star posted a video talking about "the worst thing about pregnancy."

In the clip, she told her followers that she had been a lot more emotional than usual.

"I'm more emotional. Literally I could be fine one minute and then the next second I'm crying. I'm having a good pregnancy, but emotions are just too much."

She continued:

"I'm so out of breath 27/4. I would walk from here to the end of the room and feel like I'm dying. "I feel like the baby's eating me."

And now, Nicole's cause of death has been confirmed by her family.

Before she passed away, Nicole has been complaining to her boyfriend that she was suffering chest and back pains. She had also been saying she had difficulties breathing in recent weeks.

It is believed that she passed away of a "massive heart attack."

The family says Nicole passed away at her home in Yorkshire in the UK.

Her uncle spoke out about Nicole's heartbreaking death on Tuesday.

Her uncle has revealed that the family believes she suffered a "cardiac arrest." Speaking to MailOnline, Charles Murray said: "From what I heard at the moment, we think she had a massive heart attack. "She had it in her house and she was telling her partner that she had pains in her chest and her back."

Murray said his niece had no known health issues.

"She is a dancer and we don't think she had any underlying health problems," he said. "It is terrible. But we won't know for sure until we have the post-mortem. "It is so surreal as she was so young. It is such a shock. It has really, really shaken us all up.

Rest in Peace, Nicole and Reign.
