The 30-year-old British YouTube star, Grace Victory, is currently in a medically induced coma after her COVID-19 diagnosis began to worsen after giving birth to her son on Christmas Eve.
Last Monday, Victory’s family shared a message on her Instagram account to update her fans on her current health battle, revealing how she tested positive for coronavirus while pregnant and prematurely delivered the baby on Christmas Eve.
The very next day, she was admitted to the ICU and placed in a medically induced coma.
“As you guys know, Grace gave birth on Christmas Eve to a beautiful baby boy, who is currently doing so well, he’s incredible,” her post read. “We Love him so much.”
The post went on, saying: “Grace developed Covid-19 two weeks ago and although her symptoms were mild at first, they worsened as the days went on. Which meant they had [to] deliver the baby as soon as possible, as she was just too unwell to carry on with the pregnancy.”
After experiencing breathing issues, she “was admitted into intensive care on Christmas Day” and then placed in a medically induced coma, according to her family.
The doctors believed this was to give her body time to recover.
“She’s currently stable but please keep her in your thoughts & prayers,” the message continued.
“We love her so much and we know she’ll come out of this stronger than ever. She has dedicated her whole career to healing people, we now ask that you pray, to heal her.”
Victory was due to give birth in February 2021.
Just last two months ago, she celebrated her two-year anniversary with boyfriend Lee on Nov. 11, sharing a sweet post to Instagram: “Two years of loving each other ???? You the best baby! Happy Anniversary @iamlpw,” she wrote.
