Miranda Sings star Colleen Ballinger has officially gone into labour.
The YouTuber posted her last picture from the hospital simply saying Here we go! on Monday night, as she checked in for the arrival of her baby boy.
The fandom went into meltdown over the news that Colleen – who recently starred in Ariana Grandes music video Thank U, Next while heavily pregnant – is going to be a mum in a matter of hours.
Ariana was among the first to alert the YouTubers loyal following, tweeting omg and I love you so much to the performer as she prepared for the birth.
oh……… my god.

Colleen looked suitably well-prepped, holding her mobile phone in one hand and an iced coffee in the other, while she pouted into her selfie screen.
Naturally, the self-confessed lipstick fanatic was beautifully made up and her hair even looked perfectly coiffed in the hospital bed.
The star of Netflixs parody sitcom Haters Back Off – in which she doubles as aspiring viral sensation Miranda – promised to let her followers know when she was going into labour after first making the pregnancy announcement on her well-followed channel.
And the brunette didnt disappoint, prompting a wave of well-wishings to flood through Twitter following her picture post.
please write and sign notes to all our teachers excusing us from having to study for tests so we have time to look for updates on the baby.
sincerely, the whole fandom@ColleenB123

One fan eagerly announced: Colleen is having her baby, this is not a drill. I repeat, colleen is having her baby !!
And then baby watch commenced, at the expense of all other responsibilities.
One fan wrote: Dear colleen, please write and sign notes to all our teachers excusing us from having to study for tests so we have time to look for updates on the baby. sincerely, the whole fandom.
Another said: My entire day has consisted of studying for tomorrows final and refreshing all of Colleen Ballingers social media to see if shes given birth yet.
While another patient fan asked: Am i the only one thats staying up as late as i can to see if colleen gives birth or am i just weird.
After that, there was speculation about the newborns name and inevitable excitement that the baby boy might be born on the same day as any one of the fandom.
Colleen – who has 7.6million YouTube subscribers – announced her pregnancy in June and later confirmed that she was having a boy, due on New Years Day.
She is also engaged to Haters Back Off co-star Erik Stocklin, who plays Patrick in the sitcom.
