YouTube star Zoe Sugg has announced she’s expecting her first child, a baby girl with boyfriend of eight years and fellow YouTuber Alfie Deyes.
The 30-year-old, known by her online name Zoella shared the news with her nine million followers on Instagram this afternoon, she wrote: “We’re super excited to share with you, that our baby girl will be joining us in September.”
Zoe shared a video montage of her pregnancy so far — and that snippet just wasn’t enough. We can’t wait to see cute baby bump pictures and Zoe in stylish spring maternity wear.
Alfie also posted to Instagram and Twitter, writing: “We’re excited to share with you, that our baby girl will be joining us in September.”
The post received over 200,000 likes within the first half an hour with the vlogging couple receiving thousands of congratulations messages.
The pair have been in a relationship since 2012 and subscribers may also remember that the couple who kept their relationship very private were accidentally outed by Youtuber Jim Chapman in a vlog; after snapping a glimpse of Zoe’s laptop background that showed the couple kissing, it didn’t take long for fans who were already suspicious about the relationship to put the pieces together.
The couple were formally based in Brighton but moved to a five-bedroom mansion in West Sussex in 2017. Their home is said to be worth £1.7m and Zoe often shares stylish snaps to her Instagram.
