One of Britain's sweetest couples—YouTuber Tom Fletcher of boy band McFly and wife Giovanna—released a time-lapse pregnancy video to introduce their second son.
YouTube star/boy band member Tom Fletcher and his wife Giovanna Fletcher charmed the world when they shared a time-lapse video in 2014 documenting Giovanna's pregnancy with their first son, Buzz, and now they're back with another equally-adorable pregnancy time-lapse video for their second son, Buddy.
For the original video, which has since racked up nearly 13 million views on YouTube, the couple took photos every day throughout the nine months of Giovanna's pregnancy. The pair obviously had a bit more on their plate while making the second video, and took photos "almost every day throughout the pregnancy," as Tom wrote on Facebook.
The new video follows Giovanna's progression from three months and features the star of the first video, Buzz, hanging with dad in his crib. The sweet family portrait depicts mom's growing bump beautifully, until she finally walks off and returns with Buddy in her arms. Like the first one, it's set to one of the McFly singer's original tunes: "It only takes 9 months to make a human, 9 short months to make a new one. A half-me, the-other-half-you-one, it'll call me dad and you mum," he croons.
And if you're looking for even more reasons to love this wonderful and talented family, Giovanna was recently in the news for her powerful response to a postpartum body shamer. While out for a stroll with her three boys, just 11 days after giving birth to Buddy, a fan of her husband's stopped them to ask to take a picture, then pointed to Giovanna's stomach and laughed. "Oh look," she said. "Mummy's still got her tummy."
Giovanna then took to Instagram to vent about the experience and show pride for her post-baby bump. "I was so shocked I laughed. But the words have stuck with me," she wrote. "More than anything, I was baffled over the stranger's need to share her thoughts... Yes, I still have a bump. But that bump kept my little baby boy safe for a whole nine months. That bump has filled my world with even more love and light than I knew possible. That bump is a miracle worker... My bump will slowly go over time, but I'll never stop being thankful to it and my body for everything it's given me. #spreadlove."
Stay awesome, Fletcher family, and congratulations!
