Felix Kjellberg, known by his millions of YouTube subscribers as PewDiePie, just proposed to his long-time girlfriend Marzia Bisognin, formerly known as CutiePieMarzia, according to their recent social posts.
Bisognin announced the news on her Instagram account with a post that reads, “Felix proposed!!” Meanwhile, Kjellberg posted the same picture with the caption, “She said she’ll think about it…” on Twitter. The two YouTube stars have been dating since 2011, and they currently live together in Brighton, UK.

Fans reacted with lots of heart emojis, some crying emojis (presumably happy crying), and lots of exclamation points to Bisognin’s Instagram post announcing the engagement. Kjellberg’s fans responded with congratulations and also (of course) memes. The engagement presumably took place in Japan, where the couple has been vacationing for the past several days, documented on both Bisognin’s Instagram and YouTube channel.
The couple originally met after a friend of Bisognin’s recommended she watch Kjellberg’s videos on YouTube, which she did. She enjoyed them enough to message Kjellberg telling him so, which sparked their enduring relationship.
In addition to operating a YouTube channel that has 7.2 million subscribers and an Instagram account with 5.2 million followers, Bisognin has launched multiple clothing lines and offers a subscription-based beauty box with the nail polish brand Zoya. Kjellberg has over 62 million subscribers on YouTube, which makes his channel the most subscribed to on the video platform. You could say they’re an internet power couple.
Bisognin and Kjellberg have also collaborated on lots of video and social content, including an animated Halloween series they voiced starring cartoon versions of their two pugs, Maya and Edgar. Looks like their next collaboration will involve a lot of wedding planning.
