The 19-year-old “Ellen” star also opens up about why her fans haven’t seen her man in over two years, or even learned much about him.
For as long as she can remember, Sophia Grace Brownlee has been a public figure, having appeared as a child, and several more times over the years, rapping “Super Bass” on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” alongside her younger cousin. Rosie McClelland.
She’s been pretty comfortable living her own life in the spotlight, for the most part, but that doesn’t carry over to other aspects of her life. While she opened up about her recent pregnancy on October 22, her partner in that endeavor remains largely a mystery.

“Because I’ve always been in the spotlight, I feel like I want something just for myself,” Grace told E! News about why her fans know so little about this mystery man (not even his name!).
She said that helps make his whole relationship and him “something that I can keep private and enjoy and not have to share with everyone.”
The viral star also suggested that some of it could also have to do with her own boyfriend, and whether or not he’s ready to come out in the public eye.
She told the outlet that she would be “totally happy to share him” and have him in her videos, “but I feel like when I’m confident enough to be in them, then maybe we can do that.”

Although she’s not going to talk about it right now, Sophia shared how she reacted, saying she “shared it right away” when she found out she was pregnant.
Sophia shared that she has every confidence that her man will be a great father and said that in many ways, she feels like they have grown up together. “It will definitely make us proper adults and then we can grow up together and have a family.”
She said that he was immediately happy when she shared the news. “Obviously they were both quite shocked at first and also overwhelmed because he’s young too,” added Sophia, who is 19. “But now that we’re getting used to it, we’re both very excited.”
19 years old definitely looks young, or even also young, by some people, who weren’t shy about sharing their thoughts on his life and choices on his YouTube channel.

Even Sophia acknowledges that 19 is young and told E! News that “most people say, ‘You should have babies when you’re 30, married and living in your own house,’ which is completely fine.”
But that doesn’t mean it’s the right path for everyone. “As long as you feel ready and it’s something you’re happy about, then it’s really nobody else’s problem,” she said.
On the contrary, in a positive way, she has also seen tremendous support from her fans, which she says has helped lift her up and give her confidence.
For now, she is leaning on the support of friends and family and feels positive and excited about growing her family.
In her announcement video on October 22, Sophia Grace said she was 21 weeks old and teased that this could change the direction of her channel.

“I can’t wait to share this journey with you guys and definitely have a lot of different content than I normally have,” he said.
She went on to show off her growing baby bump to the camera. Standing up, she said, “It’s sticking out a little right now, definitely more than it usually does. It’s a little swollen. That’s what I look like at five months.”
Sophia shared some photos of ultrasounds she had received and said the scans went well and everything looked good for her and her baby.
At the time, he asked his followers to “only comment nice things because we need a lot of positivity” and emphasized that “negative comments will be removed.” Unfortunately, many negative comments were and are splashed on her social media pages.
With promising new videos every Saturday, Sophia teased that in the next one she would reveal the gender of her video, which she already knows, but she strategically wasn’t delighted at all!
