Family Blogger Lilly Beltran Has Died After Giving Birth
On Tuesday, blogger and Instagrammer Lilly Beltran died after being rehospitalized following the birth of her third child. A post on her Instagram confirmed that the 33-year-old had died, directing followers to a GoFundMe to help pay for medical and funeral expenses, as well as education for her surviving children. Her family has not shared the cause of death.
For the past six years, Beltran blogged about motherhood, fashion, beauty, and her everyday life in Houston, Texas on Daily Craving. She is survived by her two sons, Evan and Mason, newborn daughter Millie, and husband Erick.
“This morning we unexpectedly lost Lilly, our angel on earth, after a brief re-hospitalization following the birth of sweet Millie,” her account’s most recent Instagram post reads. “It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye far too soon. There are no words for how much our hearts ache and how much she will be missed. We know she is in a better place, dancing and rejoicing with Jesus. We kindly ask that you please respect the privacy of the family during this time and refrain from questions."
Her GoFundMe has raised $22,000 of its $50,000 at the time of reporting with almost 300 donors. Beltran’s husband, Erick, has not publicly posted about the news, but fellow influencers are mourning in the comments.
“Absolutely aching and speechless,” DIY blogger @sugarandcloth wrote.
“There are no words. Wrapping Erick and the kids in love,” Katie Crenshaw added.
Beltran’s death follows that of YouTuber Nicole Thea, who died with her son in childbirth in July. Her boyfriend Global Boga posted a video on her channel thanking subscribers for their support on Monday.
