YouTuber Grace Victory in coma with coronavirus one day after giving birth to baby boy

YouTuber Grace Victory has been placed in induced coma in her battle with coronavirus just a day after giving birth to a baby boy.

The social media star, 30, was pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Lee when she became ill with Covid-19 two weeks ago.

She initially developed mild symptoms but started to deteriorate and doctors decided they needed to deliver the baby early because she was "too unwell to continue with the pregnancy".

The baby boy was born on Christmas Eve and Grace was admitted to intensive care a day later.

The tot was not due to arrive until February.

A statement posted on Grace's Instagram page explained she has since been placed in an induced coma as she continues to battle coronavirus.

It read: "As you guys know, Grace gave birth on Christmas Eve to a beautiful baby boy, who is currently doing so well, he's incredible.

"We love him so much. ‘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.

"Grace was admitted into intensive care on Christmas Day due to issues with her breathing & therefore they had to make the decision of placing her into an induced coma, to give her body the rest it needs, in order to recover."

The statement added that Grace is "Currently stable" and asked fans to keep her in their prayers.
