YouTube star, Zoe Sugg – better known as Zoella – has revealed the happy news that she is expecting her second child.

The social media star announced that she is set to welcome a second daughter in December on Monday evening.

Sharing a black and white video of herself and her partner Alfie Deyes holding up their ultrasound scan alongside their daughter Ottilie Rue, Zoe said: “Our family is growing! Little girl joining us in December.”

The couple have been together since 2012 and welcomed their first child in August 2021.

Now, taking to her YouTube channel, Zoe spoke about her pregnancy, saying: “You have noticed, I haven’t been uploading on this channel as regularly as I used to do, there’s a reason for that.

“We’re having another baby.”

She added: “I do really, really appreciate the people that have asked how I am.

“That’s been very, very sweet to read, especially in moments where it just feels like there’s a lot of pressure – like I want to film but I don’t feel like I can and I’m not feeling great.

“It was really reassuring to me to know that like so many of you were just hoping I was okay.”

Zoe went on to say that she knew “from day one” that she was having a girl, while Alfie was convinced it was a boy.

“I just knew. It was like every vision I had, was Otti and a little sister,” she said.

“I imagine Alfie with two little girls (and) I said before we found out, ‘I would be so shocked if this was a boy’ because I am so sure.”
