Tessica Brown, a.k.a. “Gorilla Glue Woman,” is pregnant! The viral YouTuber shared the news of her expectancy exclusively with TMZ.
According to the celebrity news site,
“Tessica’s manager, Gina Rodriguez, tells TMZ … Tessica and her fiancé, Dewitt Madison, are expecting their first child together. What’s more … they’re going to blend their family. She has 5 kids from a previous relationship and he has 4 kids. Yup … 10 kids together.”
Tessica became famous after uploading a video that warned individuals about the dangers of using Gorilla adhesive glue on the hair. Many felt the YouTuber’s pain as she explained how she tried everything she could think to use in the hope of loosening the bond. Tessica strongly advised her viewers to not use the glue to bond weaves or other hairpiece extensions.
Some mocked Brown for her viral video. A surgeon in Beverly Hills (Dr. Michael K. Obehg of MiKO Plastic Surgery), however, invited the YouTuber to undergo one of his procedures free of charge. Tessica shared her thoughts on both the positive and negative responses to her video during a recent interview with VOX.
“I only went to social media to try to get help because we tried everything that we can possibly try,” Brown said. “Clout is something I will never chase,” she added. “[The dance team] was in a commercial. They were in the newspaper. They were in a magazine. That’s enough clout for me,” Tessica explained. “I don’t need all of this, because this was just way, way too much. And truly, who would want to go through the pain that I went through for clout?”
Brown was not searching for fame when she took to YouTube with her first video. The viral sensation, however, has no plans of closing the door on the spotlight she is receiving without first sending a positive message.
“I’m going to use my platform to try to let everybody know you’re not your hair because I’m not my hair at this point,” Tessica shared with VOX. “If you’re a beautiful person inside, you’ll be that same beautiful person on the outside.”
