Actress and healthy living influencer Lauren Elizabeth announced her pregnancy in a social media update on Monday, April 3, 2023.
Elizabeth shared the exciting news with her 875k followers in an Instagram post featuring a sonogram image along with her and her boyfriend's hands. The post was captioned:
"Been keeping a little secret all year. We are so excited for our baby girl this September. First trimester vlog is on my YouTube."
The reveal came as a surprise to her fans as many were not aware that she was dating. A quick browse of Lauren's social media posts and vlogs over the last few months showed that she was not single. However, it was never explicitly revealed who she was dating.
The comments section of the post was soon filled with messages of love and support for the YouTuber. One of the comments included a message from fellow influencer Kenzie Elizabeth. She wrote:
"I hope Matt enjoyed his hand modeling time."
Lauren's interaction with Kenzie gave away the boyfriend's name. A quick search through her profile revealed that the boyfriend in question was Matt Torvik, a 28-year-old account executive based in Chicago.
