Known for his record-breaking feats since his emergence on YouTube, Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg has often delivered when it comes to providing his millions of subscribers with quality content. However, on February 5, the Swedish creator shared possibly his biggest milestone yet from a personal standpoint — he's having a baby. In a short video update, PewDiePie revealed that his wife, Marzia, is pregnant. "I've been keeping a secret from you guys, and that is I'm gonna be a dad," PewDiePie says at the beginning of the sequence. According to the YouTuber, he and his wife found out about the pregnancy in November 2022, and everything has been going well despite Marzia experiencing bouts of "sickness" throughout the early stages.

"I'm so excited," PewDiePie says of the enormous occasion. "It's kind of strange to me, it's entering new territory, but I feel really ready and so does Marzia." The YouTuber continues, expressing his joy at becoming a parent alongside his spouse. "I just feel so lucky to start a family with the woman I love. And I know whatever's ahead of us, together we can do it." PewDiePie and Marzia weren't the only excited parties regarding the news.

A pregnancy announcement is a big deal. And unsurprisingly, many offered their congratulations to PewDiePie and his wife on such a momentous occasion. Popular content creator Farina Jo commented on the YouTube video, telling PewDiePie and his wife that "[they're] gonna be awesome parents." Even the official Twitter account for Opera GX — a web browser — got in on the fun. "New Pewdiepie to sponsor dropping soon I see," the account tweeted. One Twitter user responded by calling PewDiePie "a legend," accompanied by a picture of a crying man that reads, "I used to pray for times like this." Another modified the popular YouTuber's name, dubbing him "PewDadPie" in the wake of the news.

Some fans also took the time to acknowledge the evolution of PewDiePie and Marzia's bond by posting gifs made from clips of them during the early days of their relationship, which coincided with PewDiePie's rapid ascent through the YouTube community. In one of the funnier reactions to the bombshell, one Twitter user expressed their happiness for this wholesome development while sharing a video of actor Tyrese Gibson crying.

Being a parent is hard work that lasts a lifetime. But if PewDiePie's enthusiasm is any indicator, it seems the YouTuber is ready for all the challenges and rewards fatherhood has in store for him.
