Felix Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie, announced his wife Marzia Kjellberg is pregnant in a new YouTube video.
In the minute and a half video, titled "We're having a baby!" Kjellberg said they found out in November, and were both really excited to become new parents.
"I've been keeping a secret from you guys," Kjellberg began the video, addressing his 111 million subscribers. "And that is, I'm going to be a dad."
Kjellberg, who is 33 and from Sweden, shared photos of Marzia's pregnant belly, as well as videos of them celebrating the news, attending pregnancy checkups, and showing sonogram photos.
In one clip they tell their parents the news over a video call, who immediately start crying. The video didn't feature a due date.
Kjellberg said Marzia had been dealing with morning sickness, but had been "taking it like an absolute champ." He said she had also been craving strawberries.
"So yeah, I'm going to be a dad, I'm so excited," Kjellberg said. "It's kind of strange to me, it's entering new territory, but I feel really ready and so does Marzia."
He said he felt lucky to be starting a family with Marzia, who he described as "the most loving and caring person I know."
"I have no doubt she'll be an amazing mother," Kjellberg said.
Marzia, who is 30 and from Italy, also shared the video to her Instagram with the caption, "We are having a baby!!"
Kjellberg and Marzia got married on August 19, 2019 at the Temperate House at Kew Gardens in London.
While Kjellberg still regularly makes YouTube content, Marzia left the platform in October 2018. They currently live in Japan after moving there from Brighton, England, in the summer of 2022.
Kjellberg was known as having the biggest YouTube channel for over five years, but was overtaken in March 2019 by Indian record label T-Series, despite an enthusiastic "Subscribe to PewDiePie" campaign from Kjellberg's fans to keep him at the top.
Kjellberg is still one of the biggest stars on YouTube, but was recently surpassed in subscribers by Jimmy Donaldson, better known as MrBeast, who is known for his cash and car giveaways, and ambitious projects such as recreating the Netflix phenomenon "Squid Game."
