Brownlee, who did not reveal the father’s name, said she already knows the gender of her unborn bub but did not share it with followers.

She also shared ultrasound photos from her 12-week and 20-mark scan with viewers.

The singer told E! News in 2021 she had a boyfriend and had been with him for the last two years.

Speaking about her experience with pregnancy, the teenager admitted she felt “disgusting” in the early weeks.

“I felt very, very sick for a long time. It still comes back sometimes now, it is really really disgusting and it literally ruins your whole day,” Brownlee explained.

“I do not know why they call it morning sickness because it lasted all day for me, all day long. Thankfully, it is sort of going away a little bit.”
