From Dance Moms to Nickelodeon to ruling social media, JoJo Siwa's journey has been completely mind-blowing, to say the least. With 12.2 million YouTube followers and a collection of unforgettable songs, she's proven herself to be not only a dance icon but a true musical force. And let's not forget her unique fashion sense, which has spawned a line of bows, clothing, and bedroom accessories as dazzling as her personality.
Now, at 20 years old, we're eager to see what JoJo's next career move will be. Will she drop new music, venture into acting, or finally become the surgeon she always dreamed of being? The options seem endless. But amidst all the buzz surrounding the 'Boomerang' songstress, lately, there have been some pretty wild pregnancy rumors swirling around the YouTube star in the past year.
Is JoJo Siwa pregnant? And where did these rumors even come from anyway? Let's dig into the nitty-gritty of these rumors and sort out facts from fiction.
Before JoJo Siwa became the global sensation she is today, she made a splash in the dance world as a child. With a mother who was deeply passionate about dance, JoJo started dancing at a young age and took part in various children’s dance competitions.
However, her real rise to fame began in 2013 at the age of nine, when she participated in the second season of Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition. Although JoJo placed fifth in the competition, shortly after, she became a regular on the reality show Dance Moms for two seasons, winning over a loyal fan base as a result.
After her stint on Dance Moms, JoJo soon transitioned into the world of social media. Her YouTube channel, previously known as Its JoJo Siwa, skyrocketed in popularity, amassing a massive fan base and millions of views in no time. Initially, Siwa used her channel to offer fans a glimpse behind the scenes of Dance Moms and share snippets of her daily life.
However, the channel soon evolved into a platform for her music, with her hit song ‘Boomerang’ resonating deeply with young audiences. The song, inspired by Siwa’s encounters with cyberbullying, has become one of the most-watched videos on her channel, boasting a whopping 989 million views.
'Boomerang' has also been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), according to Apple Music. In addition to ‘Boomerang,’ Siwa has had other musical hits such as ‘D.R.E.A.M.,’ ‘Kid in a Candy Store,’ and ‘Hold the Drama.’
Following the success of "Boomerang,' Nickelodeon partnered with Siwa in 2017, marking the beginning of a fruitful collaboration. From there, JoJo appeared on various Nickelodeon shows and specials, further cementing her status as a popular children’s television personality.
Her influence extended beyond the screen as she launched a line of toys, clothes, and accessories, catering to her ever-growing fan base. And the coolest part? According to PEOPLE magazine, Siwa even got her beverage called JoJo juice, and if you ask us, that’s when you know you’ve made it big time!
The Siwas are also proud parents to JoJo's brother Jayden, who, despite not being a dancer, has made a name for himself in the world of real estate. According to PEOPLE, JoJo holds her family close to her heart and currently lives with them in a Los Angeles mansion she purchased.
So, if there’s no ring on her finger yet, no biggie. Besides, she’s got a whole lot of life ahead of her to figure that out — remember when she talked about wanting to be a surgeon on the TODAY show back in 2019 — so in the meantime, let’s give her the space to chase her dreams before we start nudging her towards settling down.
No, JoJo Siwa isn't joining the celebrity mom club anytime soon. However, if you're wondering how the pregnancy rumors about JoJo Siwa even started in the first place, Business Insider reports that the speculation began in the spring of 2023 when she posted photos of herself cradling her stomach on Snapchat.
While some fans took the posts as a lighthearted prank, others weren’t too thrilled, calling Siwa out for being a bit tone-deaf to those struggling with fertility and pregnancy issues. And since JoJo never really addressed the rumors or the backlash, the rumor mill kept churning.
The baby speculation only began to subside after Siwa posted a TikTok video on her channel, where she was seen denying the rumors by holding her stomach, shaking her head, and laughing. Many took this as a confirmation that JoJo wasn't pregnant.
However, this didn’t stop her from continuing to prank-post about it. Last spring, Business Insider reported that she posted several Snapchat posts with captions like “team boy or team girl” and “father of my baby” with her friend Ezra Sosa. Siwa also posted a picture of herself with several baby clothes, captioned “baby clothes haul.”
Fast forward to 2024, and there's no baby on the horizon for JoJo Siwa just yet, meaning those baby-related posts are probably just her way of teasing us. Besides, Jojo is still young and has a lot of living to do before she dives into the world of parenting. Until then, let's keep rooting for her as she goes after her dream of becoming a surgeon or whatever else she sets her sights on.
