Colleen Ballinger, better known for her popular fictional YouTube character, Miranda Sings on Netflix's Haters Back Off is engaged to her boyfriend, Erik Stocklin. The cute couple is on cloud nine, as they are pregnant with their first child, due this New year.
Colleen Ballinger is all set to welcome baby no. 1 with her fiance, Erik Stocklin
Colleen announced her pregnancy news via her YouTube Channel on Friday. While talking to PEOPLE, she also said she couldn't be happier than being pregnant and becoming a mom, but it has not been easy. She is facing morning sickness all day.
13 weeks pregnant actress told PEOPLE,
We're so, so excited. We’re so in love and can’t wait to meet this kid. It’s just all happening at once; a lot of exciting things coming quickly, which is awesome. I’m the luckiest girl in the world.
She also claimed her mother has not been of much help in the process. When she told her mother about her pregnancy, her mother explained to her it's going to be easy, as she did not face any sickness.
And later when Colleen got sickness and told her mother, she was like, "Oh yeah … I did get really sick too, that is true, I had that too.’ … She set me up for failure!” But she is learning on her own, finding what she's craving for and what she can tolerate. She further said,
I have a whole new perspective on pregnancy and motherhood now that I’m experiencing it. Women are so amazing that their bodies can do this and that they’re strong enough to do this. I can’t believe almost every woman goes through this because it’s so hard.
Lucky Colleen, her fiance Stocklin has been by her side to get her through it. The couple previously shared the screen in Netflix series, Haters Back Off, where he portrayed the role of her best friend, Patrick. They kept their relationship low key until this month. They both had planned to get married and start a family with a child since when, and now they are just a step closer to it. But eventually child happened first, and engagement followed.
Before Stocklin, she was married to YouTuber Joshua David Evans and divorced in 2016. As of now, she is all ready to release her new book, My Diarrhe on July 10, and continue her cross-country tour rest of the summer.
