A pregnant YouTube star has died along with her unborn son, her heartbroken family announced tonight.
Nicole Thea’s mum confirmed the 24-year-old passed away along with her unborn child called Reign on Saturday morning. Mum-to-be Nicole, who had 110,000 followers on Instagram, was a British dancer and Instagram influencer.
Her devastated mum confirmed the double tragedy this evening.
She wrote: “To all Nicole’s friends and supporters it is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Nicole and her son she and [partner] Boga named Reign sadly passed away on Saturday morning.
“Also Nicole [had] presheduled a few YouTube videos and Boga has made the decision to allow them to be aired. As a family we ask that you give us privacy because our hearts are truly broken and we are struggling to cope with what has happened. Thank you her mum RIP. My beautiful baby girl Nicnac and my grandson Reign. I will miss you for the rest of my life until we meet again in eternal heaven.”
It’s not clear how she died. One of her recent clips on YouTube features her brother and boyfriend rating her maternity outfits.
On July 8, for example, the three of them were shown looking relaxed and happy in the kitchen, while the men rated her clothes out of ten.
