Thea has been on YouTube since 2015 and in that time gained over 82,000 subscribers and 4 million views.

She and her boyfriend, Global Boga, were expecting a baby boy soon. Sadly, the baby also died.

A cause of death was not released.

There was much excitement surrounding the pregnancy announcement that the couple made back in April.
