GloZell Green‘s path to motherhood hasn’t been easy.
It took years of doctors’ visits, painful procedures, hunting for a surrogate and then hoping the IVF would take to get her to her baby shower in Los Angeles on May 21.
“I feel like I can finally breathe a sigh of relief,” the YouTube star, 43, says of celebrating the impending birth of her daughter with her husband, Kevin Simon, along with their surrogate, Shawna Johnson.

Green — who makes a splash on Wednesday’s episode of Joey Graceffa‘s YouTube Red series, Escape the Night — says the event was a “Jack and Jill” baby shower, meaning both men and women were invited.
“I thought it would be more fun that way,” explains Green, who invited guests to inscribe messages in children’s books instead of a guest book.
Guests, including YouTube stars iJustine and Todrick Hall, also decorated onesies and bibs at the party, which is featured on the June 22 episode of Glo All In.
PEOPLE has an exclusive clip from the episode, which premieres Wednesday on Awestruck’s go90 channel.
“A lot of the onesies were works of art, so I’m not sure if she’ll be wearing them or if we’ll hang them up in her room,” says Green, whose baby daughter is coming in August. “I can’t wait for her to meet everyone!”
