Would you expect any different from Superwoman?

‘No matter how many “boxes” you check, I encourage you to do the same x,’ finishing off the message with a string of rainbow hearts.
And the Canadian star received an outpouring of love from her YouTube pals and fans, with My Drunk Kitchen host Hannah Hart writing: ‘I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!!!’
‘IM SO PROUD OF YOU LILLY!! my heart is exploding!!!!!!’ Shane Dawson added.
Gabbie Hanna wrote: ‘Proud of you bbg, so happy you’re finally comfy enough to say this out loud!!!!!’
Later, the 30-year-old added: ‘Thank you so much for the love and positivity. Words can’t describe how much it means. I appreciate you all. Group hug.’
The star, who currently boasts a following of more than 14 million, is most well known for her comedy sketches and has featured her fair share of celebrity pals on her channel, including Terry Crews, John Cena, and Rita Ora.
Late last year Lilly took a well-earned break from YouTube to focus on her mental health, and later opened up to her fans about prioritising self-care.
‘What’s going on 2019? And can I just say, I am happy,’ she beamed at the beginning her first video of this year as she referenced her break from the platform.
‘For years and years, I have been making two videos a week,’ she explained. ‘I want to make videos when I have an idea that really does inspire me.’
We reckon she’s doing pretty well so far.
