Twitter user @MariaCarletonYT tweeted: “I’ve been so invested in @melaniietweets pregnancy journey (as an expectant FTM) and now I feel like an anxious friend waiting to hear on how she is now shes gone into labour. Hoping she has a safe & healthy delivery of her little one!!”

Melanie replied: “Lying in hospital with a baby on my chest since last night 😍😭 Will update soon! Xxxx.”

Friends and fans were quick to congratulate her, including fellow YouTube star Anna Saccone Joly, who replied: “Omg congratulations!!!”

Melanie announced her pregnancy back in March, just days after she married her longtime love Thomas in a civil ceremony – after they were forced to cancel their big wedding due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sharing the news on her Instagram page, Melanie admitted it was nice to have such happy news amid lots of “doom and gloom”.

Something’s been cooking… 👀 👶🏻🥰 After the PCOS scare, we both decided to start trying/to stop ‘being careful’~assuming it would take months to a year or more~in late December…then this little profiterole came along in January! Straight away! Like it was waiting! We both feel so incredibly lucky and have been through all of the emotions during the first twelve weeks…what a rollercoaster. I really didn’t know what to expect as I’ve never been around a pregnant woman and I was dealing with a lot of ovarian cyst pain on top of the pregnancy which was…not fun 😂 Today, our scan showed a strong heartbeat and everything is looking very healthy. Little one was bouncing around, having a jolly old time! Been utterly ecstatic ever since we got home and have been dying to share the news ☺️ Maybe some of you guessed as I’ve been a little distant/horizontal on the couch more than usual lol or because we’ve shared our desire for babies for a couple of years now on YouTube. Bit of happy news to share amid all the doom and gloom, and after the coronawedding situation! WE’RE GOING TO BE A MOTHERFUCKING FAMILY! #12weekspregnant #mammytobe #uptheduff #preggo #30andpregnant
