In a year of doom and gloom, children have been the innocent and harmonious little creatures acting as a beam of light for people all around the world… except the screaming, pooping and zoom disrupting but we won’t speak about that. Many of the Youtubers that we were all watching in our early teens have now grown up a lot and have gone on to have babies of their own! Some are completely newbies to parenthood and others are absolute pros at this point… let’s have a browse and see who you remember.
Zoella and Pointlessblog
The 2021 news that had all our inner fourteen-year-old selves squealing, very loudly, on the inside of course (okay, maybe one high pitched escapee). Many, many congratulations to the lovely couple! Zoe Sugg and Alfie Deyes have been dating since 2012, a time in which a lot of us were fingerling and guessing ‘are they’ or ‘aren’t they’. The couple have shared a huge amount of insight into their lives throughout their time as a couple and they are now taking on a new adventure. They shared their news on social media with Zoe allowing us a view of her baby bump and the ultrasound. Their daughter is due in September… we can’t wait!

A couple of weeks ago, Imogen and Spencer announced their pregnancy – with their baby due in September. The pregnancy announcement was absolutely beautiful and the video that went alongside was just flawless.
Jim Chapman and fiancé Sarah Tarleton announced their pregnancy last month and are amongst the latest additions to the YouTube parent club. After a whirlwind romance, announcing their engagement only 13 months after confirming their relationship, they then shared this wonderful news. When announcing the news, Jim said: “I may have had a part in making this little miracle, but I’m sure whoever they turn out to be, they’ll be the making of me.”

Since starting his YouTube account in 2013, Mattdoesfitness, formally known as Matt Morsia, has gained over 2m subscribers. His videos largely focus around his love for weightlifting, bodybuilding and eating… a lot! One of his most popular videos to date was back in 2017 when he took on a 20,000 calorie ‘man vs food’ challenge. His wife Sarah gave birth to their firstborn son, Luca in 2016 and in 2020, they announced the pregnancy of their second. The couple has largely documented this second pregnancy – the latest video on Matt’s page shows him recreate life as a pregnant woman as he sympathises with his wife’s current situation.
Now we all remember the OG Baby Glitter, Darcy, but Louise Pentland has since graced us with a second baby glitter, Pearl!

Over the years, she became a household name for many teens and was associated with her role in the elite YouTube friendship group (Zoella, ThatcherJoe, Pointlessblog, Jim Chapman etc.) Following her split with long-term partner and husband, Matt Watson, she announced that she would be closing her Youtube channel. She then once again found love with her current partner, Liam O’Neill. The pair had a daughter of their own, Pearl in 2018 and last March, shared news of their engagement.
