YouTube star Emma Chamberlain has opened up about her personal life and relationship, even shutting down any “pregnancy rumors” that fans might try to spread.
The 18-year-old featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine in January, something that surprised herself, saying she ‘couldn’t believe it’. The magazine called her “the most popular girl in the world.”
She also spoke with the magazine for an interview, giving more personal details than she often goes into in her YouTube videos.
Her videos have helped her attract more than 8.5 million subscribers, and is likely to hit 10 million at some point in 2020, but according to Cosmopolitan, Chamberlain’s “next challenge” is actually her personal life.
“I’d like to open up more about my relationship,” sho told Cosmo‘s Dana Schwartz, “But things change so quickly – if I say something now, who knows where my life will be in three months? I could be pregnant.”
Knowing that even mentioning the word pregnancy fleetingly could spark hysteria, the magazine made sure to clarify that Chamberlain had no plans of getting pregnant and has an IUD.
Back in July, the YouTuber uploaded a video entitled “I’M PREGNANT????”, complete with a fake baby-bulge, before reassuring fans that it was fake. At the time, she explained more about her thoughts on pregnancy.
“One day, I am going to be pregnant, and I don’t know when that day’s going to be, probably in like ten years, maybe more.” She also explained that she’s ‘been nervous her whole life’ and scared to have children.
Chamberlain then proceeded to live her whole day ‘as a pregnant woman’, even going shopping for baby clothes, and trying to get comfortable while protecting a baby-shaped stomach.
For now though, it’s clear that continuing her YouTube success, and expanding beyond it more into the mainstream eye with this magazine cover, are Emma’s current goals.
Still only 18, the potential growth for her channel and continued rise as one of the world’s new celebrities will be fascinating to watch over the coming years.
