YouTube queen of queens Tanya Burr, 33, has confirmed that she is expecting her first child, after posting a picture of herself cradling her baby bump.

The bump is also being cradled loveingly by a man's hand – and a rather large one, at that.

The caption reads, "We love you so much already little 🥜". WE!

The post has been liked and commented on by celebrity friends Jonathan Bailey, Joe Sugg, Zoe Sugg, Laura Whitmore and Alfie Deyes – as well as virtually every YouTuber to ever post a video EVER. Sadly, none of them give any indication as to whom this mysterious male hand belongs to - but it's safe to say, it's unlikely to belong to ex Jim Chapman.

The popular YouTuber has previously vowed not to disclose the identity of any new partner (following her split with Jim) as she felt like she "overshared" during her speedy rise to internet stardom.

Tanya went on to post a stunning follow-up snap of herself making pregnancy look as easy as eating a Magnum in a heatwave. Like, WOW.

Now we want a Magnum.

When did Jim Chapman and Tanya Burr break-up?

YouTube royalty and OG YouTube couple Jim Chapman and Tanya Burr announced their divorce in 2019 (we know 😢). They had been together for 12 years and married in 2015. Thanks to their vlogs, we had been on a lot of that journey with them, and the split news came as a shock to many.

Jim Chapman and Tanya Burr announced their split on 12th March 2019. They released the news in statements on their Instagram stories, cause: influencers.

Tanya wrote, "Just wanted to let you all know that a few weeks ago Jim and I made the painful decision to no longer be together. We have a huge amount of love and respect for each other and will continue to remain friends forever. Thank you in advance for respecting our privacy at this difficult time."

Jim wrote, "After twelve incredible years, Tan and I have decided to go our separate ways. We're still absolutely the best of friends and have nothing but love and respect for each other. We will continue to support one another in all of our ventures and are both looking forward to what the future holds."

This news came as a big shock to their fans, many of whom had been following their relationship for years. While everything seemed to be going well in front of the cameras, there could have been issues in their private lives.

In an episode of the Diary of a CEO podcast, Jim suggested that they actually broke up a long time before they made the announcement. He said, "The world only found out me and Tanya broke up when we decided to tell them.

"We only decided to tell them when we did because the press found out. So actually it was much earlier than anyone realises."
