Some exciting news!!! (again!)

Thought I should mention this somewhere since I have bumped into quite a few of you lately and people will start to notice :)

I’m having another baba!

Nugget Dazzledust – Taken at 9 weeks. I’m 16 weeks now :)

I know only a few of you knew last time round. I’m quite a private person. I know, it’s ironic that I make YouTube videos – I’m so comfortable talking about make-up with you lot. I’m always afraid of airing my private life on the internet though so I left that part of my life out of the equation all together. During my last pregnancy I wanted to scream it from the roof tops but I had some complications at the start of my pregnancy. I had to be ready for the worst news and it occurred to me that if my anything bad were to happen and I had told everyone about it then I would also have to tell everyone about any devastating news. Being a private person I couldn’t face that. I also spent quite a lot of time in hospital before my baby was born – hence the reduction in videos/blog posts and also the ‘fat face’ as someone put it :) I had pre-eclampsia. Another reason I kept quiet is that my blog and YouTube channel are like my sanctuary, somewhere I can just be Amy, not mammy, pregnant woman etc I thought if the news was out there it would no longer be a sanctuary. Luckily, everything has worked out lovely. Baby Eve is 10 months old and is an angel.

This time around I feel like a pro :) I’m only 16 weeks and due on August 22nd. Man, it will  be one hot summer in my skin.

Don’t worry, this isn’t going to turn into a pregnancy blog. Make Up & Beauty will remain about shallowness and pretty things. I just thought I would let you know in case a bump appears in Outfit of the Day posts :)

I’m absolutely thrilled!

Thanks for all  your support

    wow Amy, I just read the news and I HAD NO IDEA you already were a mama! Well done keeping it private, I understand why, not only because you could feel just Amy not mammy, but also for your kid’s privacy aswell. Are you married too?

    By the way, my birthday is on the 22nd of August :)

    Good luck!

    Congratulations Amy :o)
    I’m a mummy too, which is why I haven’t been on our laptop for some time now and have only just read your wonderful news.
    I think it’s great that your children will be close in age.
    I’m 17wks pregnant and expecting twins! My boy is 15mths old, but I am not phased by having 3 children under 2 years old. I’m already teaching Gianluca to help me and he’s doing a great job ;o)
    I don’t blame you for being a private person. It’s so nice to have your ‘sanctuary’ and I think it’s vital when you’re a mummy, as it’s easy to lose your identity. You go girl!
    All the best. I always watch your videos on you tube.
    Ciao bella

    Congrads Hun so happy for you I was thinking there was a bit of a glow off u recently :) hope everything goes well :) xxxxxxxx

  • Jaimie

    Congrats Amy!!!! I’m 19 weeks pregnant and due beginning of August with my 1st child. We had our scan this morning and we are having a girl!
    I understand why you kept quiet….we waited until the end of the 1st trimester to tell our families.
    Good luck with your pregnancy!!!!

    Congrats Amy on the good news (x2). I remember people leaving comments about a year ago saying you looked pregnant based on your face in the videos…i thought they were quite mean since you never mentioned you were…now I realise you were in fact pregnant then. Fair play on keeping it private, all too often people reveal too much about their life on youtube/beauty channels. Then it is open for critics and not knowing where to draw the line about how much they should know. I really appreciate and respect how you like to keep your beauty hobby and private life seperate ;)

    Congratulations. I do remembering watching some vids last year thinking I wonder if Amy is pregnant. So now I know you probably were! Such exciting news. Eve is a very pretty name. Sending you well wishes from Aus!

  • Lu

    Big congrats to you, Amy! Like so many others, I had no idea you were a mom! Good for you for keeping your private life private! I’m probably old enough to be your mom, but I enjoy your videos very much! Is that weird? Oh well!! ;-) Sending you lots of ~~good vibes~~ from the US. <3

  • Nikki

    Oh my gosh – Congrats to you, I was like ‘another baba’ – what did I miss ? I’ve been a follower for yonks and didn’t realise little Eve was around, I absolutely adore the name – Congrats and all the best this time round, pray for a plainer sailing – le gra, Nikki

  • Brandi Stagg

    Congratulations Amy! I had no idea you had a baby. Would love to see her little face! Hope you have a wonderful healthy pregnancy this time around. Enjoy not sucking it in in your bathing suit for one year. I felt so free! lol

  • Elle

    Congratulations Amy!! When I read another baby, I didn’t realise you were already a mum. That is so exciting! There must be something in the YT waters; it seems that so many gurus are pregnant at the moment.

  • lyndsy

    Hi Amy, delighted for you, all the best with this pregnancy. xx

    pregnancy! :)

  • Em

    Wow!! Major news!!! It makes sense now to b honest
    I did think u looked different in your videos for a while

    Congrats
    Hope all is going well for u

  • Ulrike

    Wow Amy, that’s fabulous news. Congratulations.
    I’ve been watching your videos for about 2 years now and actually I remember thinking you might be pregnant about a year ago – I don’t even know why, but it seems I was right. :D I can totally understand that you prefer to keep your private life to yourself. Though it’s great that you shared your news now. I wish you the best of luck with your pregnancy. xxx

  • robyn

    PS this means when people ask you to do things you dont want to do you can just say, “i can’t…i’m busy making life right now.” hehehe

  • robyn

    Amy!!!!! You’re making life! How awesome!!!!! Congrats girl! I totally didn’t know you were already a mommy and here you are doing it again! I wondered what was up awhile ago when you were gone for a bit and now I know, mystery solved :)

    I do not blame you one bit for keeping your news private, bravo. I think now a days, with the way some of the people are on YT, you almost have to keep it quiet and private b/c they can be rather mean and crazy. It bums me out though, because for those of us that just adore you-we are missing out on seeing your little bundles of joy :) I bet that Eve is a cutie! How exciting! um….of course this means I want to send about 93773930 baby things to you. :)

  • Ellie

    Wow Amy I had no idea!! Well done you for being able to keep it a secret haha. Can totally understand why too. Such fab news, good luck darling. Wish you all the best with this pregnancy. I have two little cousins with about the same age gap, get plenty of sleep now :) xxx

    Ah wow congratulations- I saw this pop up and saw ‘another baby’ and thought…. do you have a baby already?!! I completely see why you kept it off the blog/YT, my friends have been having a horrible time and it is just easier to recluse sometimes!

    Wow ten months and pregnant again! That is a tough deal! Two under two- you’re going to need lots of energy!!! Hope all goes well xx

    • http://www.makeupandbeauty.ie Amy

      Emma,
      Ha ha when you say Two under two I felt panicked! :) Hadn’t thought of it like that!
      Thanks a mil
