The Haters Back Off! actress, 32, announced her pregnancy in June. “I am 13 and a half weeks pregnant,” she said in a YouTube video. “I can’t believe I’m saying this out loud to a camera. This has been the hardest secret to keep from you guys … I’ve never cared about anything more. Like, I have a baby! I’m so pregnant!”

Ballinger also revealed her engagement to Stocklin, 36, at the time. “As you guys know, Erik and I have kept our relationship pretty private,” she explained. “Erik is not an internet person. He’s so shy and sweet, and social media and the internet [are] not really his thing. So we’ve kept our relationship extremely private.”

She continued: “We started out as friends, and that turned into best friends in the whole world, and then that slowly turned into more. But when it turned into more, we very quickly realized, ‘This is my person.’ We knew we wanted to be married, we wanted to have a family together, we wanted to grow old together. This is what we want, this is what we need. It just is a perfect fit.”

Before giving birth, Ballinger — who confirmed on Instagram in July that she was expecting a boy — appeared in Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” music video, which was released on November 30. The YouTuber showed off her baby bump in a cropped cheerleading outfit reminiscent of those worn in Bring It On. The pop star, 25, sweetly kissed her belly at the end of the production.

“I’m so excited for this music video i’m gonna go into early labor. #Thankunext,” she wrote on Instagram on November 25.

The Ralph Breaks the Internet star also celebrated her impending arrival with a Christmas wonderland themed baby shower in November, which her Haters Back Off! costar Angela Kinsey attended.
