Beloved longtime beauty YouTuber Tati Westbrook, otherwise known as glamlifeguru, recently alluded to a huge personal announcement on Twitter, leaving fans with the idea that a fun new project or Halo Beauty product was on the way — definitely not.
With her subscribers' support, Westbrook just announced that she plans to make less YouTube content from here on out to focus more on her beauty brand and, most important, to try to have a baby with her husband of nine years.
In the video announcement, Westbrook opened up about her health, previous troubles with fertility, and her dream of becoming a mother. Read all the details below.
Though Westbrook admits she's scared of losing fans during her semi-hiatus, support for her immediately arrived in the form of YouTube comments.
"It sounded beautiful when you said James and I are trying to have a baby," one user wrote.
"Tati I will never leave you!" another chimed in.
"You and James are incredible and deserve to have a family bigger than it is now. I know I will never stop watching and supporting you and what you've accomplished," wrote one more.
Several women even commented to share their own struggles with fertility, stress, and motherhood.
"4 years trying to get pregnant," read one comment. "4 IVF treatments later we have our son Luca. Never give up. You will get your baby!"
"Tati I'm crying with you. We miscarried this year and are trying again now. It's so scary and magical at the same time," one user wrote.
Many also chimed in to say that five videos a week is A LOT, and that Westbrook shouldn't feel ashamed for taking this step back.
Between filming five YouTube videos per week and running her own indie beauty brand, Westbrook is already doing two full-time jobs — that's hard enough as it is, let alone doing it while trying to get pregnant and stay healthy.
