PewDiePie Wife & Children

The couple now Felix and Marzia Kjellberg got married exactly eight years after they first met in a small ceremony that appears to have taken place at London’s Kew botanical garden. After establishing an online relationship, Kjellberg flew to Italy to meet her. PewDiePie proposed to Marzia Bisognin in April 2018 while the couple was on holiday in Japan.
The wedding was a small, intimate affair with “our closest friends and family” in attendance, Marzia Kjellberg wrote on Instagram. Some of the guests included YouTubers JackSepticEye, GirlGamerGab, KickthePJ, and Boyinaband. Marzia Kjellberg’s blush-colored wedding dress was made by a couture designer named Joanne Fleming, who Kjellberg thanked on Instagram for “bringing my vision to life.” Additionally, embroidery on the dress’ train was done by a British artist named Susan Kennewell. The process for the dress took “months,” Kjellberg wrote on Instagram, but said the final result was her “dream dress.”
Currently, this lovey-dovey couple live in Brighton, a seaside city in the United Kingdom, and have two dogs: pugs named Edgar and Maya. The duo is not blessed with any children yet.
