Beauty Guru Marlena Stell Announces She’s 20 Weeks Pregnant On 40th Birthday

By  | 


Marlena Stell is having a baby! The now-40-year-old beauty YouTuber took to Twitter and Instagram to announce she’s got a bun in the oven one year after suffering from a miscarriage.

“Today on my 40th Birthday I’ve been given the gift of a lifetime!” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m officially 20 weeks pregnant and [my] little one is due May 12, 2020 … After having a miscarriage last year and trying again for over a year, we went to a fertility specialist on 9/4/19. We were told because of my age and other factors that my chances of getting pregnant were slim and chances of healthy baby were even more slim. They gave us the option of IVF [in-vitro fertilization] and told us that after several rounds of batching at $45k that our chances would still be around 20% success. I left that meeting crying and giving up on the chance of having my own child.”

Two days later, it turned out that the founder and CEO of Makeup Geek was already pregnant! “We just had our 20 week ultrasound yesterday and little one is super healthy and active!”

Today on my 40th Birthday I’ve been given the gift of a lifetime! I’m officially 20 weeks pregnant and little one is due May 12, 2020 ❤️ After having a miscarriage last year and trying again for over a year, we went to a fertility specialist on 9/4/19. We were told because of my age and other factors that my chances of getting pregnant were slim and chances of healthy baby were even more slim. They gave us the option of IVF and told us that after several rounds of batching at $45k that our chances would still be around 20% success. I left that meeting crying and giving up on the chance of having my own child. On 9/6/19- just 2 days later I took a pregnancy test and found out I was already pregnant!!! We just had our 20 week ultrasound yesterday and little one is super healthy and active! (He/She kept moving and playing with the umbilical cord lol. Technician kept laughing saying “this one is an active one!) God gives us our greatest gifts after we’ve given up hope❤️ This is my best birthday ever and I’m feeling beyond blessed ??

Marlena shared three separate photos to announce the news: one was the ultrasound of her unborn baby and two showed Marlena and her boyfriend cradling her stomach.

Earlier this year, Marlena Stell uploaded a Tell-All video about the Jaclyn Hill and James Charles controversies that went down this year. Now that she’s got a little one on the way, though, we doubt she’ll be getting into any more petty drama. You’ve got to keep you body and soul peaceful while making a baby!
