YouTube star, Nicole Thea, who was pregnant with her first child, has died at the age of 24, along with unborn son, whom she and her boyfriend, Global Boga, hoped to name Reign.
The 24-year-old, who lived in London, was just weeks away from her due date and always kept her followers up to date with her pregnancy journey. It is unclear how both Nicole and her unborn son died.
The family of the UK-based Youtube star confirmed the heartbreaking news in an Instagram post on Sunday, July 12, 2020.
“To all Nicole’s friends and supporters it is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Nicole and her son she and Boga named Reign sadly passed away on Saturday morning,” the family’s post read.
Thea’s family went on to explain that the YouTube star had “pre-scheduled a few YouTube videos and Boga has made the decision to allow them to be aired.”
“As a family we ask that you give us privacy because our hearts are truly broken and we are struggling to cope with what has happened,” they said.
