Knight’s situation then became, even more, complicated. When she went for her OB appointment at 34 weeks, Knight was diagnosed with preeclampsia
However, Knight explained how she then “started having contractions, went into heart failure, and was taken by ambulance to a hospital three hours away.” In the heartwarming final moments of the TikTok, Knight reveals two healthy babies, referring to the girls as her “best friends” and telling her audience that she realized she “could do this” and that “all (her) dreams are coming true.”
In a YouTube video in which Knight discussed her daughters’ birth story, she recounted in further detail what happened. She spoke about going to the hospital and learning that she had preeclampsia. Over the next few days, she was in and out of hospital until finally she was transferred to a larger hospital where she was set to deliver her girls. Because Violet was head down and Scout was transverse, Knight knew she wanted to deliver via caesarian.
She talked about how she had trouble breathing but presumed it was because of carrying two babies at once. During the operation, she said it was the “best feeling ever” once both of her girls were taken out as she could breathe again. However, the doctors continued to run tests on Knight to figure out why she couldn’t breathe easily after they suspected she had a blood clot in her lungs. After they ran the tests, doctors realized Knight had gone into heart failure and so they focused on making sure her situation stabilized.
Knight recounted the story matter-of-factly in the video, but it’s clear that the reality of her situation was dire at the time. Violet and Scout were born
It was after their birth that Knight decided to launch a YouTube channel to further invite her audience into her family’s life and track their progress as they grow. Her videos include topics such as shopping with babies, her family’s morning routine and a video for the twins’ 1st birthday. The footage of their birthday party was incredibly sweet, with the girls in matching dresses. The channel has accumulated over 438,000 subscribers with many people showing their support for the family in the comments.
Meanwhile, Knight’s TikTok account is also thriving, with over 8.4 million followers. The original TikTok video that went viral has now garnered over 1.6 million likes and almost 10,000 comments. It’s also gone on to inspire countless audience members. One commenter wrote, “5.5 million friends who love and support your beautiful family.” Another TikTok user said, “you are so definitely enough for those girls.”
Knight has truly embraced her audience in the year since Violet and Scout were born. In her bio, she describes herself as both “mom and dad,” a statement that asserts her pride as a single parent. Her story continues to charm audiences everywhere and Knight, as well as #violetandscout, have got millions of viewers rooting for their health and happiness.
