Little Mix star Leigh-Anne Pinnock is among the stars who have passed on their well wishes to YouTube star Grace Victory, who is currently in a coma fighting coronavirus.
Grace, 30, gave birth to her first child with partner Lee on Christmas Eve, almost two weeks after being diagnosed with Covid-19.
The influencer’s condition sadly worsened and doctors made the decision to place her in an induced coma on Christmas Day to give her body time to rest and recover.
After Grace’s family posted a statement on the heartbreaking situation, Little Mix singer Leigh-Anne commented: ‘Sending you so much love to you all.’
Model and activist Munroe Bergdorf also showed support and said: ‘Thinking about you all. Love you Grace x.’
TV presenter Katie Piper wrote: ‘Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers Grace ?.’
Activist and author Gina Martin expressed her shock and commented: ‘Oh god Grace ❤️❤️❤️ sending healing vibes you you and your beautiful mana and bubba. Praying for you you beautiful person ❤️❤️❤️ ???.’
Beauty guru Sam Chapman added: ‘Sending all the positivity that I have.’
Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan wrote: ‘Sending so much love to you all ❤️❤️❤️❤️.’
Grace was expected to give birth to her baby boy in February but doctors decided she was becoming too unwell to continue with the pregnancy.
In their statement, the star’s family wrote: ‘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.
‘She’s currently stable but please keep her in your thoughts & prayers. We love her so, so much and we know she’ll come out of this stronger than ever. She has dedicated her whole career to healing people, we now ask that you pray, to heal her.’
Grace announced the arrival of her son on social media shortly after delivery, and wrote: ‘We’re parents. It’s been a wild week but this morning baby boy arrived and is our little Christmas miracle.
‘We are all doing so well and I am f*****g in love… IM A MUVAAAAAAAAAAAA [sic].’
She also shared sweet details of the birth and added: ‘When baby was being born Lee sang “the first time I saw your face” and that is why I need to marry him… I’m a whole Mum!! I can’t believe it.’
The YouTube vlogger had suffered difficulties during her pregnancy and was admitted to hospital for almost two weeks with ‘severe dehydration’.
Grace documented her health battle in a YouTube video and stated: ‘I was on the verge of having anaemia and I was basically completely and utterly burnt out.’
The influencer has been dating Lee for two years and they announced the exciting news they were expecting their first child together in May.
