Tanya Burr is pregnant! YouTube star reveals she’s expecting her first child with secret partner
Tanya Burr has revealed she is pregnant with her first child.
The YouTuber, 33, shared the happy news on Instagram on Tuesday, sharing a black and white snap of her blossoming bump,
She captioned the image: ‘We love you so much already little [peanut].’
Tanya did not disclose the father’s identity after previously vowing to keep her partner’s name secret because she felt like she ‘overshared’ during her rise to fame.
The vlogger went through a very public divorce in 2019 with fellow YouTuber Jim Chapman – who had earned a legion of fans with their joint videos.
While Tanya has shared subtle glimpses of her boyfriend on social media she has not shown his face or shared his name.
She told The Telegraph of her relationship last year: ‘I’m very loved up. It’s very exciting.’
Yet she insisted that she would keep the romance private, noting: ‘I overshared at the beginning [of my online career] without realising the effect it would have, so I really reined it in.
‘I’ve been quite private for a few years now and my audience are used to it, so they don’t expect anything any more.’
In November 2020, actress Tanya spoke of her split from Jim for the first time, saying there was ‘no drama’ and she hoped to always be in his life.
She said: ‘I’ve been there, where I’ve seen someone saying, “Ooh, have you heard so-and-so and so-and-so have split?” and then thought, “Let me look that up,” it’s what people do.
‘I’m not angry with anyone. People are just being people. It’s hard and horrible. I’ll never google myself again.
‘All that matters is what Jim and I think, it’s boring – he’s still my best friend. We’ve been best friends for 12 years, people will want some drama from it. We’re always going to be in each other’s lives, hopefully.’
Tanya and Jim had been in a relationship since December 2006 after meeting at sixth form college in Norwich.
They got engaged in 2012 in New York, before tying the knot at Babington House, Somerset, in September 2015.
The former couple were last pictured together at The British Fashion Awards in 2018, before announcing their separation a year later.
Tanya’s baby news comes three months after ex-husband Jim married his fiancée Sarah Tarleton.
Sharing the surprise news with his followers on Instagram, the model and YouTuber revealed he tied the knot for the second time in a low-key ceremony at Santa Barbara Courthouse.
Jim, who welcomed his first child with Sarah in September, also shared he and Sarah decided to get legally married ahead of their wedding celebration in Spain, and they had the ‘loveliest evening’ marking the occasion with their loved ones.
Jim went public with Sarah in June 2019, three months after announcing his split from YouTuber Tanya Burr, 32, who he was with for 12 years, and married for three.
