'Gigi's use of the word surrogate was not meant the way it was received.'

'Her use of the term while holding her friend's new baby was meant playfully, as she was stepping into the parenting role and caring for the child during her visit. She was so excited to help care for the baby and is thrilled to be a part of the child's life. Gigi believes that family is what you make it and will help provide a support system for the child for many years to come.'?

The YouTube star, 25, who rose to fame while candidly detailing her life as a transgender woman, took to Instagram on Sunday to share a photo of herself with Nats, 24, and a baby boy.

'Thank you so much to our beautiful surrogate,' she wrote in the caption, implying that she and Nats, whom she has been dating for more than a year after a brief break-up in December 2016, had become parents.
