An 11-year-old girl, with an extremely rare condition that makes her age quickly, has become an internet star thanks to her gay nature and self-described ‘diva’ personality.
Adalia Rose, from Austin, Texas, has amassed a whopping 1,535,400 subscribers on YouTube and has roughly 14 million likes on her Facebook page.
She has gained massive online popularity by creating videos, often with her mom and dad, which showcase her virulent personality.
Rose was born with Hutchinson-Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS), which affects less than 500 people globally.
It is defined by symptoms of fast aging, as well as dwarfism, lack of muscle and body fat, loss of hair, discernable veins, a high-pitched voice and aberrant facial formation.
It is a condition stemming from a new genetic mutation and is not typically inherited because sufferers seldom live long enough to reproduce. Alas, people afflicting from this type of progeria rarely live past the age of 13.
“I just told her ‘you’re born different. That’s just who you are.’ And she owns it,” says Natalia Pallante, Adalia’s mother.
“In the beginning, when we first started her Facebook, it was just for giggles. Now she has like 14 million followers on Facebook, and all of her [1.1 million] subscribers on YouTube.”
Ryan, her father, claims: “Having a social media superstar 11-year-old is crazy, especially when we’re out in public. “A lot of people recognize her.”
Adalia lends: “I love to do YouTube videos for my fans, because I love them, I guess.”
Both said they would describe Adalia as a ‘wild one’, driven, stubborn, courageous, determined, and crazy.
