PewDiePie Just Got Engaged To His Longterm Girlfriend

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Internet star PewDiePie, real name Felix Kjellberg, has just got engaged to his long-term girlfriend Marzia Bisognin.

The pair both have significant internet fame, and both posted the same photo on their separate social media channels to announce the good news.

In the pic, you can see Felix leaning in for a kiss while Marzia shows off the glam ring, which she posted with the simple caption ‘Felix proposed!’

It is currently thought by their fans that the proposal took place in Japan, as the couple have been openly documenting their travels their in recent days.

The couple have been together for the past seven years, with fans thinking they started seeing each other in late 2011.

PewDiePie’s channel is one of the largest on YouTube, his videos rack up millions of views every time, and he takes home a huge pay packet as a result.

Fans have been congratulating the couple on their engagement since the news broke, with one writing:

While the couple are clearly raking in the dollar, PewDiePie fell from the top spot as the most paid YouTuber in the world in 2017, but he’s still rolling in the money.

At the end of each year Forbes releases their list of the highest-paid YouTube stars and since PewDiePie caused repeated controversy in 2017, it is to no-one’s surprise that he has been knocked off the top spot.

Real name Felix Kjellberg, PewDiePie saw himself dropped by advertisers after he came under fire for posting several videos that included racist language and anti-semitic imagery.

Last year the Swedish YouTuber’s earnings were around $15 million but in 2017 they dropped to $12 million after Google took him off its preferred program and Disney dropped him from their multi-channel network Maker Studios which no longer exists.

Many other companies also blacklisted him leading to a significant drop in revenue but PewDiePie can’t really complain as $12 million is still a jaw dropping amount of money.

And even though he lost advertisers his subscribers were clearly not put off by his behaviour as his videos are still watched by nearly 60 million people.

Replacing him as the highest paid YouTuber is someone you may have never even heard of – DanTDM.

Daniel Middleton is in a league of his own, earning a rather sweet $16.5 million last year thanks to a sold-out world tour, 17 million subscribers and over 11 billion views on his channel, which is unfathomable.

But still, at least PewDiePie has put the last year behind him, and is clearly looking to the future with this big decision.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
