Nicole Thea gave her YouTube followers a peek into her pregnancy

According to the New York Post, social media influencer Nicole Thea took to Instagram in April 2020 to announce her pregnancy with partner, Global Boga. "We can't hide this any longer, secrets out ... GOD gave us the biggest blessing yet. I'm finally creating a beautiful little human inside of me," the mama-to-be gushed on Instagram. "Honestly, @global_boga has been the best support EVER and GOD made no mistakes making him the father... We are already obsessed with you our little miracle baby. Thank you for choosing us to be your parents and best friends."

The British YouTube personality — whose page has 104,000 subscribers — first carved out a niche for herself on the platform with her dance and hair videos. More recently, however, she began focusing her efforts on chronicling her pregnancy with videos titled, "WE DONE A BELLY CAST!! (8 MONTHS PREGNANT)" and "THE WORST THING ABOUT MY PREGNANCY! FT. RESHINE HAIR." Her most recent video was uploaded on July 12, 2020 and titled, "GOT IN A BATH FULL OF MILK *BTS PREGNANCY SHOOT."

Our most sincere condolences go out to Thea's friends and family for their tremendous loss.
