Miranda Sings’ Colleen Ballinger and Fiancé Erik Stocklin Reveal Baby’s Gender (VIDEO)
It's been weeks since Colleen Ballinger and Erik Stocklin announced their surprise pregnancy and engagement to the public.
Keeping with that custom, the couple shared more aspects of their future family by revealing their baby's gender to the world in a new vlog. Stocklin and the digital star, who is most known for her funny Internet persona Miranda Sings, filmed and posted their friends-and-family-only gender reveal celebration to YouTube Friday (July 13).
"So it's purple and blue: purple is girl, blue is boy," the entertainer explains in the 10-minute clip before exploding colorful smoke bombs to announce what the couple is expecting.

"We're having a little boy!" a beaming Ballinger screams in the video as blue haze blows in the wind.
"To us, it doesn't matter if we were having a boy or a girl, we are going to love our kid — or kids — in the future no matter who they are, what they are, what they like," she later explained in a different scene following the grand reveal. "We're going to let our kids be exactly who they are and celebrate that."
Ballinger first broke the news of her pregnancy and engagement on June 29. “I am 13 and a half weeks pregnant,” the 31-year-old stated in a previous video. “I can’t believe I’m saying this out loud to a camera … I’ve never cared about anything more. Like, I have a baby! I’m so pregnant!”
Ballinger met Stocklin when he was cast as her love interest in her Netflix series Haters Back Off in 2016. After years of building a friendship together, the twosome went Instagram official as a couple in June 2018.
The twosome will welcome their firstborn on New Year's Day (January 1, 2019).
