YouTube star Nicole Thea, who documented her pregnancy, died on Saturday at the age of 24, her family reported.
Her family confirmed the news in an article posted on Instagram on Sunday, saying that Thea’s unborn son, whom she and her boyfriend Global Boga were going to name Reign, had also died.
No cause of death was given.
“Our hearts are really broken and we have a hard time coping with what happened,” said the Instagram post with a plea for privacy. “Until we meet again in the eternal heaven. ”
The message added that Thea’s YouTube videos that had been pre-programmed on her channel would continue for its 81K subscribers.
“Boga made the decision to allow them to be broadcast,” the newspaper said.
Thea announced her pregnancy on April 19 with an Instagram video showing her baby dancing next to Boga.
“GOD has given us the greatest blessing to date,” she wrote in the post. “I finally create a beautiful little human inside of me. I can’t believe this bubba will be half of me and half of the loml. Honestly, @global_boga has been the best support EVER and GOD has made no mistakes in making him the father. ”
