A teenager was brutally bullied after falling pregnant at 13.
Maddie Lambert, from Fort Worth, Texas, was sent messages saying “I hope you die in labour”.
And vile trolls even sent the teen links to abortion clinics.
Instead of bowing to the pressure to get a termination, the YouTube star decided she would embrace motherhood and make sure it “made her life”.
Maddie, who is now 17-years-old, told Truly: “When I actually got pregnant, I was so scared of the reaction I was going to get, and I did get a lot of negative reactions, a lot of hate.
“Everybody had something to say, and they didn't hold back.”
She continued: “People would say, ‘You're ruining your life’.
“I had people send me the address to abortion clinics when I was about seven months pregnant…
“Somebody even messaged me saying ‘I hope you guys both die in labour’.
“I took that and I shifted it. I said ‘this is making my life’.
“The hate made me want to do better and show them that I can be the best mum ever.”
Maddie’s determination has paid off.
She had her daughter Everly three years ago and says being a parent has “saved her life”.
The mum explained: “Everly didn’t only change my life, but she saved my life.
“I struggled with depression before and had a suicide attempt at 13, before I got pregnant with Everly.
“I was trouble finding my place on this Earth and why I was here.
“When I found out I was pregnant with her, it gave me a reason to fight.”
After having Everly, Maddie decided to start her own YouTube channel.
In candid videos, she described what life was like as a teen mum.
Her first post went viral and she now boasts more than 1.5 million subscribers on the platform.
She hopes sharing her story will help to relieve some of the stigma that surrounds teen mums.

Maddie added: “So many people assume I’m a bad mum just because I’m a teenager.
“But I have the same capacity to parent as anybody on this world.
“A good mum is someone who drops everything for their child. I dropped my whole childhood.
“I do everything for that little girl. She is my whole world.”
