Sophia Grace Brownlee, who became a daytime TV superstar aged eight, has welcomed her first child.

Sophia Grace Brownlee has welcomed her first child.

The YouTube star, who rose to internet superstardom after performing a cover of ‘Super Bass’ with her cousin Rosie McClelland, has become a mum.

The pair performed the Nicki Minaj song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2011 after their parents posted a clip of them singing the track on YouTube.

They were eight and five years old respectively when they became regular guests on Ellen. They returned numerous times as a firm favourite act and the singing cousins even went on to get their own segment - Tea Time with Sophia Grace and Rosie - where they interviewed celebrities themselves.

The pair even appeared on the show over a decade later, where they performed the song again in front of a live audience.

Brownlee shared the first adorable picture of her son on her Instagram page on Sunday (5 March) noting that he was actually born last month.

The new mum captioned the photo “26.02.23” and revealed he was born in February. The black and white picture shows the bundle of boy holding his mother’s.

McClelland, 16, congratulated her cousin and commented on the heart-warming post. “I love him so much already,” she shared alongside a blue heart emoji. She also reposted Brownlee’s baby picture on her own Instagram Stories.

DeGeneres also congratulated Brownlee on her new arrival. “Welcome to the world, Nicki Minaj the 3rd!” she commented.

The singer has not announced the name of her son just yet. In a YouTube video shared in February, the new mum said she intends to wait a little while before sharing her child’s face and name with the world.

“I don’t want to show my baby’s face at first when he’s born until I feel ready to,” she said. “Maybe in a couple of months after he’s born, I will feel like I’m ready.”

Brownlee, who is originally from Harlow, Essex, has kept her relationship with her baby’s father out of the spotlight.

Announcing her exciting baby news in October last year, Sophia said on YouTube: "I am 21 weeks today [...] I was very shocked when I first found out, I have got used to it now and I am super, super happy about it and I can't wait to share this journey with you guys.”

The 19-year-old also addressed criticism that she is 'too young' to have a child after announcing her baby news.

"I feel like 19 is quite young, obviously, to have a baby," she told E! News.

"Usually most people are like, ‘You should have babies when you're 30 and you're married and you live in your own house' which is completely fine. But obviously everyone's gonna have their different opinions.

"I just feel it's about the person themselves. And as long as you feel ready and it's something that you're happy about, then it's really no one else's problem."
