29-year-old Swedish Youtuber PewDiePie recently announced that he and his now-wife just bought their “dream” house in Japan.
Felix Kjellberg, famously known as PewDiePie among his Youtube fans, currently has 101 million loyal subscribers following his content. He is popular for making vlogs, game videos, comedy skits, and meme reviews.
PewDiePie is one of the biggest names in the Youtube community, currently holding the title of the second most subscribed channel in the world.
In case you haven’t heard of him — in 2013, he rose to fame after becoming the most-subscribed user on YouTube. While the number one spot has since been overtaken by Indian record label T-Series at present, his popularity continues to soar among fans of all ages across the globe.
Kjellberg married his long-time girlfriend Marzia Bisognin in August 2019, who also used to be a content creator on Youtube and is now spearheading her own lifestyle and clothing brands.
Shortly after their wedding, the pair visited Japan for their second honeymoon.
This wasn’t their first time to visit the land of the rising sun. The country seems to hold a special meaning for the pair, as they also got engaged in Japan in 2018.
The Youtuber also notably released a series of travel vlogs from his annual visits to Japan, a country he’s fascinatingly enchanted with. While it is common for his subscribers to see their favorite Youtuber out and about in the country, they were surprised to know he’d just bought a house in Japan.
Kjellberg made the announcement in a recent video
At the 19:05 minute mark, he says:
Hey, remember a while back when the last time I was in Japan I was like, ‘Oh, I’d really like to live here’? Well, we bought a house here. Yeeeah! And we’re just here for a couple days, setting up. That’s why I don’t have my whole setup and everything’s terrible. But I just want to say, thank you, it’s a dream come true, in a way, and, uh yeah…
He described it as a “dream come true” for him, and also did not forget to thank his loyal fans. He also stated that he’d been at the place for a couple of days together with his wife to set up their new home.
The couple previously lived in Brighton, United Kingdom, which led some fans to wonder whether they would be moving out of their UK home permanently.
Other than the brief announcement, Kjellberg did not reveal whether they would be relocating to Japan for good, which prefecture their house was in, or how much the purchase was worth.
Dozens of fans took it online across social media channels such as Twitter to congratulate him on his new house.
