For many folks out there who are in the know with current Youtube sensations, the name Miranda Sings will undoubtedly strike a chord. The off-beat character, Miranda Sings, was developed by and is played by 32-year-old Colleen Ballinger. On screen, The Haters Back Off star seems like the most unlikely human being to ever take on the role of motherhood, but that is precisely what Baringer (aka Sings) just did.
Yep. Miranda Sings is now a first-time mommy to a son.
Ballinger recently delivered a baby boy, announcing her son's arrival on December 11th, just hours after letting fans know that she was in labor.
Sings revealed that she was 13.5 weeks pregnant with her first child back in June when she took to Youtube and spilled the beans. Baringer is also engaged to fiance and now first-time daddy, Erik Stocklin. The news of that impending marriage was released at the same time as the baby-on-board news. Miranda Sings likes to make one heck of an internet splash. According to Ballinger, Erik is a very private person, and Ballinger was quick to point out that while she makes her living lighting up computer screens all over the world, the internet and social media is definitely not her man's thing, thus their relationship flew under the radar for a long time.
Knowing that he is super private and she pretty much IS the internet, it will be interesting to see just how much of their newborn son the couple chooses to share with the world. We hope to at least catch of few glimpses of the cutie pie, but only time will tell as to how much screen time baby boy Ballinger gets. Considering the couple's son is only a few days old, there seems to be plenty of time to work out the details of raising him. For now, we are sure that the over-the-moon pair is content merely staring at their little wonder and enjoying every minute of parenthood.
Congrats to the happy couple on their healthy bundle of joy. What a perfect Christmas present to receive this holiday season!
