Austin McBroom Was a College Basketball Star
Hailing from Los Angeles, California, Austin McBroom was born on May 20, 1992. He was well known in collegiate sports circles before he became famous on YouTube. Both he and his brother, Landon McBroom, are sports stars who went on to become famous on the Internet.
Austin McBroom was a three-sport athlete at Campbell Hall School in North Hollywood. He played baseball, football, and basketball.
McBroom committed to the Saint Louis University men’s basketball program for the 2011-2012 season, and majored in communication. He later transferred to Eastern Washington University and was looking at a bright future in pro-basketball. But he had other plans in mind when he began dabbling in social media.
While McBroom’s family had always pictured him making a career in basketball, they didn’t expect he’d be more successful on the Internet!
McBroom and Catherine Paiz Have Two Daughters
The former basketball star has been dating fitness model Catherine Paiz for a long time.
Catherine Paiz and Austin McBroom are parents to an adorable and precocious daughter, Elle Lively McBroom (born May 28, 2016).
After their daughter was born, McBroom and Paiz announced their engagement in August 2017. They filmed the reactions of their parents when they learned of their engagement for their YouTube channel.
In February 2018, the couple announced that they were expecting their second child together. They welcomed their second child, a girl named Alaïa Marie McBroom, on October 17, 2018.
In early 2019, McBroom earned backlash for a video where he is seen taking a little girl to a sex store and letting her have a phallic-shaped lollipop. The child is unidentified and speculated to be a relative of Catherine Paiz, but is not the couple’s daughter.
They have since moved on from the controversy and celebrated Elle’s birthday in 2019. Their good friends, Kylie Jenner (with Stormi) and James Charles, were at the party.
The Path to Internet Stardom
After a stellar NCAA basketball career, McBroom switched gears to seek Internet stardom. At the age of 27, he’s now a major sensation online.
Austin McBroom’s Instagram following has surpassed 6.4 million. He’s close to reaching his fiancée’s count of seven million followers!
While he’s known for making Internet prank videos, McBroom’s more famous for the family-oriented, cutesy YouTube videos where his daughter is often the star. The couple named their channel “The ACE Family.” “ACE” is an acronym for Austin, Catherine, and Elle.
Paiz and McBroom’s antics range from potty-training their daughter to teaching her to ride a bike. Some of their videos have crossed a million views.
The video Baby vs. YouTuber Dance Challenge!!! crossed one million views in a day. It has garnered over four million views since it was uploaded in September 2017.
In March 2017, McBroom and Paiz celebrated the official crossing of 16 million followers for their YouTube channel! This marked a big achievement for the couple, who have deftly parlayed their online fame into big money.
Catherine Paiz and Austin McBroom reportedly earn at least $250,000 annually, not including earnings from endorsements.
