Master gamer and YouTube personality Tyler "Ninja" Blevins recently revealed to his fans that he "was not supposed to be born" according to doctors who pressured his mother to abort him. He went on to express his gratitude to his mother for refusing to listen to the physicians and instead choosing life.
What are the details?
LiveAction reported that Blevins made the revelation during a livestream on Twitch while celebrating his 28th birthday on June 5.
"Those of you guys who don't know, I was not supposed to be born, essentially," the Fortnight aficionado said. "A lot of doctors told my mom that I had spina bifida or Down syndrome or a number of diseases, and that I should be aborted."
Blevins — the top steamer on the Twitch platform in America — went on to tell his audience of his mother, "She said no to all the doctors. And found one that was like, 'You know, we're going to have this baby.' And fast-forward nine months after that I was born perfect, you know. Nothing wrong with me.
"My mom is a saint and an angel and I love her to death," he continued. "And it's one of those things where had she listened to one of those doctors or even one of those people, you guys wouldn't be here. No one would be in this room."

Blevins is the youngest of three sons, and has publicly thanked his mother for her love and support in the past. Fox News pointed out that the star was surprised by his mother earlier this year while reading a letter to her during the recording of a SportsCenter Mother's Day special.
