YouTube star and social media sensation JoJo Siwa came out over the weekend, after sparking speculation last week with a lip-syncing video soundtracked by Lady Gaga's LGBTQ anthem "Born This Way." Now she's sharing a heartwarming video, thanking her fans for their support.

"For the last 48 hours, I have gotten the most endless amount of love and support. I am really, really, happy," she said, not long after sharing a photo of herself wearing a t-shirt her cousin got her that reads, "Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever."

"I have gotten the most endless amount of love and support...I am really, really, I'm really happy," she said. "Now that the world get to see this side of my life, it makes me really really happy. I want people to know that there is so much love in the world, and it is so incredible and it's so amazing, it's wonderful."

I always believed that my person was just going to be my person. And if that person happened to be a boy, great, and if that person happened to be a girl, great!" Siwa went on to say, adding that her family has been supportive.

When discussing how she identifies, Siwa, 17, said she's Thought about this, and the reason why I'm not ready to say this answer is because I don't really know this answer."

"I think in life you know when you meet your person," she said. "I'm the happiest I've ever been now, and that's what matters."

"I wanna share everything with the world, I really do but I also want to keep things in my life private until they're ready to be public," Siwa said. "But I, right now what matters is that you guys know that no matter who you love, that it's OK and that it's awesome and that the world is there for you.

"I think coming out has this stigma around it, that it's this really scary, scary thing but it's not anymore .. it's OK to be different," she added.
