PewDiePie announces birth and name of his first son

PewDiePie announces birth and name of his first son

The YouTuber is growing up

Felix Kjellberg, better known around the world as YouTube star PewDiePie, has welcomed his first child with wife Marzia Kjellberg.

The internet sensation, now 33, announced the news on Instagram earlier today. He confirmed that the couple have named their son Björn.

"11/ 07/ 2023. Welcome to the family, little Björn ❤️", Kjellberg wrote alongside an image of the couple happily cradling the newborn.

Kjellberg announced the pregnancy back in February to his fans and followers, saying: "I’m just so thankful everything’s been going well so far. Although Marzia has been dealing with sickness, she’s been taking it like an absolute champ. So yeah, I’m going to be a dad. I’m so excited. It’s kinda strange to me, it’s entering new territory, but I feel really ready and so does Marzia."

Marzia and Felix first met when she was introduced to the YouTuber's videos by a friend. Marzia decided to email him telling him how funny she found his videos.

The two started a relationship, and by 2011 she had moved from her home country of Italy to live with Felix in Sweden. The pair were married in 2019, and currently live in Tokyo. Kjellberg has made it clear that he intends to take a big step back from YouTube to focus on being a parent. While the content creator has taken breaks before, we would imagine this one will be one of the longest yet.
