A woman was mortified upon discovering that her future mother-in-law (MIL) had been spying on her and her fiancé through their babycam for six months.
Speaking in the third person, TikToker Kiyah Ramirez–a.k.a. @kiyahramirez–explained in a viral video that her fiancé figured out his mom was watching and listening to the couple courtesy of the babycam the MIL set up because of her suspicions they were gossiping about her behind her back.
Ramirez also claimed the mother-in-law shared the clips taken from the baby monitor and showed them to friends.
Ramirez said her in-laws were excited about her first pregnancy, but they allegedly became upset upon hearing the news she was pregnant a second time.
While she waited for things to cool off with her in-laws, Ramirez disclosed the news to her parents who were "super excited."
Her father tried to console her about the upset in-laws and reassured her that "family dynamics" are different and that she should have an "open mind."
The pep talk made her feel better until she discovered the in-laws had disinvited the couple for a planned weekend visit because their son "allows his fiancée to sh*t talk" about her in-laws.
"The whole time they were thinking it was one baby but I was pregnant with twins," she said towards the end of the clip before adding:
“And now because of all this sh*t they’ve done they will never get to see my twins."
By Monday, the clip racked up over 3.6 million views.
TikTokers were appalled after hearing her #toxicinlaws story and suggested she take the MIL to court.
To give more context as to why the MIL was so upset about the pregnancy, Ramirez made a follow-up clip clarifying a few things.
"They were upset about this particular pregnancy because the child that I have had before this was not their biological grandchild," she explained.
"My stepson who is my husband's biological son–he didn't have that baby with me."
"So the twins that I just had are their biological grandchildren but my daughter is not their biological grandchild."
She also said the MIL has had issues in the past, including getting into "physical altercations with the baby momma"–with whom she did not have a good relationship.
Ramirez mentioned the MIL had access to the footage obtained from the babycam because she was a registered "user."
