Before Birth

Jackson is the first-born child of Ellie and Jared Mecham. The couple is known for their ‘YouTube’ vlogs that are related to infertility and ways to cope with the issue. These vlogs are highly inspired by Ellie and Jared’s real-life experiences. Before Jackson was born, Ellie and Jared had struggled to overcome infertility.

Ellie and Jared got married on November 13, 2009. When they began planning to have their first child, Ellie was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Ellie failed to conceive a number of times. They underwent infertility treatment, and that resulted in Ellie’s first pregnancy.


Ellie and Jared have been vlogging since they got married. They regularly updated their fans about their infertility treatment through their informative vlogs. When Ellie’s pregnancy was announced, their fans were elated and thoroughly displayed their excitement to welcome the baby.

Jackson was a star even before he was born. Following the announcement of Ellie’s pregnancy, Jared continued to vlog about her progress. On September 26, 2013, the couple shared Jackson’s sonogram image through a vlog. The vlog also revealed the name of the baby.

Jackson was born on January 9, 2014, in Utah, US. Ellie’s delivery vlog, ‘OUR BABY IS HERE!!,’ was uploaded three days later. The vlog has acquired over four million “views” to date. The “comments” section of their vlog was deluged with their fans’ congratulatory messages. In a separate vlog, Ellie and Jared revealed that Jackson’s full name would be “Jackson Clark Mecham.” Jackson now regularly appears in the vlogs of his parents’ ‘YouTube’ channel. He also appeared in the popular video ‘BABY’S FIRST CHRISTMAS ADVENTURE!! (Ellie and Jared Christmas Special),’ which was a vlog on Jackson’s first Christmas. Jackson and Oliver Lanning, son of the ”YouTuber” couple Missy and Bryan Lanning, are both known as the children of “mommy vloggers.”

When Jackson was nine months old, Ellie unexpectedly got pregnant again. It was no less than a miracle, as she had conceived without any fertility treatment. On May 23, 2015, Ellie gave birth to Jackson’s brother, Calvin Scott. In 2017, Ellie got pregnant thrice, but all of them resulted in miscarriages. Ellie and Jared announced Ellie’s next pregnancy in November 2017. Ellie gave birth to another son, Tommy Joel, on June 20, 2018.

Apart from spending time with Calvin and Tommy, Jackson loves playing with their yellow Labrador named Penny. He also owns an ‘Instagram’ page that is managed by his parents.
