PewDiePie's baby hasn't even been born yet, but fans are convinced they've now managed to work out its gender.

YouTuber Felix Kjellberg, aka PewDiePie, announced the exciting news of the little bun - or pie? - in the oven earlier this year as he shared a new video admitting that he'd been 'keeping a secret' from his followers.

"And that is, I'm going to be a dad," he said, confirming his wife, Marzia Kjellberg, is pregnant.

The video revealed not just one, but four positive pregnancy tests that Kjellberg took when the couple found out in November, and they were quickly flooded with congratulations from excited fans.

But the attention around the pregnancy didn't stop there.

Following the initial announcement, PewDiePie uploaded another video on 5 May titled, "Think it’s time we did a gender reveal.”

Such events are a big milestone for expecting parents, but PewDiePie teased fans by failing to outright state the gender of the baby in the clip.

Instead, the couple used the video alongside an Instagram post to drop a hint, which came in the form of Koinbori; streamers shaped like koi fish.

"If you know, you will know," PewDiePie said. "We're having a Fish. If you know what this means then you know the gender."

The decorations are often hung up in celebration of Children's Day; a national holiday celebrating kids in Japan, where PewDiePie and Marzia have relocated.

However, the day stems from a holiday called Tango no sekku, which specifically honours male children.

More streamers were featured in an Instagram post from Marzia, which shared on the same day as the more recent video, alongside which she added the caption: "Hint hint."

The clues have led fans to believe PewDiePie and Marzia will be having a baby boy, with one fan responding: "Omg they're having a boy y'all!!! May. 5 is Tango no Sekku (Boy's day) in Japan, it's a public holiday in celebration for the health and happiness for male children."

Another fan commented: "Well the Koinobori hint confirms it, ITS A BOY. Carp streamers were originally flown as part of Japanese Boys day with a carp representing each son for those unaware. What a beautiful way to reveal."

Not everyone seemed so quick to catch on, though, as one fan joked: "Omg they’re having a baby fish."

The couple haven't yet revealed a due date for their baby, though the YouTuber has said Marzia is at possible risk of going into premature labor.

The mum-to-be has consequently been instructed to rest for the remainder of her pregnancy, but PewDiePie has assured that she's in good health.
