Trisha Paytas names her baby girl Malibu Barbie, not Queen Elizabeth III

When controversial YouTuber Trisha Paytas announced the birth of her daughter on Thursday, fans were divided over the newborn’s unique name: Malibu Barbie.

Paytas, 34, is also known for being an OnlyFans singer and model. She became known in part thanks to videos in which she films herself eating.

Shortly after Paytas tweeted about the birth of her daughter, the term “Malibu Barbie” started trending on Twitter. Paytas’ post included photos of her holding the newborn, the two wearing pink clothes with a strawberry pattern.

“She has arrived,” wrote Paytas, who uses both the pronouns she/her and them/them. “Malibu Barbie Paytas-Hacmon born 9/14/22 at 8.9 pounds and 21 1/2”.

Many fans congratulated Paytas on the birth of her daughter. But before the arrival of Malibu Barbie, some had joked that the future parent would give birth to the reincarnation of the queen.

Last Wednesday, September 7, Paytas posted that they were dilated by one centimeter. The next day, the world was rocked by the news of Queen Elizabeth II’s death.

Some social media users put the two seemingly disparate facts together.

“you’re kidding”, a user wrote in a viral tweet. “Queen Elizabeth is about to be reincarnated as Trisha Paytas’ baby and you’re laughing.”

“you could say that trisha paytas’ baby is… the crowning glory”, another the person tweeted.

But the joke that Paytas’ baby might be the reincarnation of the queen seemed to make the YouTuber uncomfortable.

As News Feed reported on Saturday, Paytas weighed in on TikTok saying she hasn’t given birth yet. She continued that all the recent attention had “embarrassed” her, adding that there was “no reincarnation of the Queen”.

“At the end of the day, I was sad for my baby too – my baby wasn’t even born and it’s this internet joke,” Paytas said, according to News Feed. “Please be kind to my baby. She deserves love and respect.”

Many Paytas fans have since welcomed Malibu Barbie into the world, but some have upset the YouTuber over her baby’s unique name.

“No in the name…think of her! She’ll be teased at school!” a person commented on Thursday’s tweet from Paytas.

Still, others have defended Paytas over his choice in the nickname.

“Y’all Malibu is a cute name and y’all forget she lives in California like please the kids don’t go bullying her cause another kid is going to be called Sparrow or Leaf or Birch LIKE PLSSSSS “, another user wrote.

Newsweek contacted Paytas for further comment.
