The rumor mill is abuzz with news about the biggest YouTube wedding in the platform’s history. No, we’re not talking about the Jake Paul-Tana Mongeau (possibly fake) wedding drama. King of YouTube PewDiePie, aka Felix Kjellberg, and his longtime girlfriend, Marzia Bisognin, reportedly tied the knot in August 2019. Their fans aren’t claiming this YouTuber wedding is staged for clout, and instead are hoping this is for real. Did PewDiePie really get married? Here’s what you need to know.
Felix Kjellberg’s Alleged Wedding Photo Surfaces
If you’ve followed PewDiePie’s career, you’d know that he has been dating YouTube fashion maven Marzia Bisognin since 2011. They’ve been living together for years, initially in each of their native countries before settling together in Brighton, England.
The YouTube power couple got engaged in April 2018 and have occasionally shared details about their wedding preparations on social media. But they never revealed a wedding date.
On August 19, 2019, Kjellberg’s mom, Johanna Kjellberg, shared a now-deleted picture on her Instagram of her with her son and husband. And the setting looked quite wedding-ish.
Fans were quick to conclude that Johanna was an ecstatic mother of the groom on Felix’s supposed wedding day. Though neither Felix and Marzia nor their families had confirmed it, fans believed that the popular Internet personalities had tied the knot.

It has been confirmed that Felix and Marzia tied the knot on August 19, 2019, exactly eight years after they first met! On Tuesday (August 20) he shared a beautiful series of photos from their intimate ceremony on Instagram. He wrote, “We are married!!! I’m the happiest I can be. I’m so lucky to share my life with this amazing woman.”
He followed up with another post on Wednesday, saying that their wedding day was the “best day ever!” He promised fans that there would be many more photos to come, and his fans are surely losing it in excitement for the couple. His original wedding photo post has over 10 million likes.
Even more, Marzia changed her Instagram name and is proud to be Mrs. Kjellberg. She also shared three posts about their special day—there’s no joke here fans, their wedding was real!
