Camila Coelho revealed she is pregnant with her first child with husband Ícaro Coelho in gorgeous snaps from a Vogue Brazil cover shoot shared to her Instagram account on Sunday morning.
The 34-year-old social media star was overjoyed as she declared to her nearly 10 million followers that ‘DREAMS DO COME TRUE!’ while showing off her growing baby bump in beautiful images from the campaign.
She wrote: ‘It has truly been the happiest 23 weeks of my life. After a sensitive journey, with so much fear and many frustrations due to my epilepsy, God has blessed us with the most special gift in life, the one we have dreamed of the most – OUR BABY!!! Im so happy to now share it with you guys!’
The beauty brand founder looked gorgeous in an elaborate brown gown with heavy draping that exposed her growing bump.
The piece had one shoulder, mimicking a Grecian toga style and she complemented it with a gold chainlink choker.
Camila pulled her dark hair back into a chic bun for the outdoor shoot.
Tall trees were visible in the background of the shots, and they were accompanied by a hanging beige backdrop.
Within the cover story the YouTuber told the publication that she’s never taken birth control pills due to her diagnosis.
She’s had the condition since she was only nine-years-old and has also mentioned in the past that she’s always wanted to be a mother.
‘I imagined that I would get pregnant in the same month as the baby plan was started,’ she said in her interview.
But after months without successful conception before finally missing her menstrual cycle in November.

Camila described how she felt while taking the pregnancy test as she said, ‘I was afraid of being disappointed.’
She continued, ‘When I saw the positive, still hugging Icarus, I couldn’t cry because I was in shock. Was I really pregnant? I was really pregnant!’
The beauty maven said the process of trying to start a family gave her anxiety.
‘That’s when I started to feel a lot of anxiety and fear of never being able to get pregnant. I remember, with each period, sitting down and crying,’ she admitted.
She leaned on her husband’s support during that time. ‘I still lived in Los Angeles, a place where I felt very alone, I didn’t share this pain with anyone. I didn’t want to worry my mother about it, so I just had the support and affection of Ícaro.’

As she continued to open up she said, ‘At a certain point, I decided to follow what I always heard from my mother – I put that expectation in God’s hands and prayed.’
Even after designing, Coelho said she still felt uneasy. ‘Despite all the faith, of having managed to get pregnant as I dreamed, I couldn’t control the fear or anguish that hovered without me being sure that everything was okay with the baby,’ she noted.
‘I felt guilty for sometimes waking up sad and continuing to cry. I don’t know if it was the hormones, but the truth is that it only went away a few weeks ago, after some tests,’ she said.
Camila and Ícaro’s baby is due sometime this summer.
