YouTuber PewDiePie has announced he and his wife are going to have a baby, and while many flooded to congratulate the star, others immediately turned to the potential dilemma the child might have growing up.
The YouTuber, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, sent the internet into a spiral as he shared the news of his upcoming new arrival in a video posted on Sunday (5 February), when he admitted he'd been 'keeping a secret' from his viewers.
Kjellberg revealed that he and his wife, Marzia, had found out they were pregnant in November and that they were relieved to say 'everything’s been going well so far'.
The news comes four years after the pair tied the knot in 2019, and more than a decade after they first met in 2011, when Kjellberg travelled to Italy to visit Marzia after they met online.
Kjellberg was born and raised in Sweden, while Marzia lived in Italy before they moved to Los Angeles together.
They later relocated to Japan, though they also spend time in the UK after previously having bought property in Brighton.
In case you hadn't realised, that's a lot of countries, and a lot of languages.
It's amazing to be exposed to so many different cultures and experiences, but fans of the YouTuber have admitted that it might be quite confusing for the couple's new little bundle of joy when they arrive.
Given the couple's heritages it wouldn't be surprising if they spoke both Italian and Swedish around the child, though they'll likely also have to speak some Japanese and English when spending time in the respective countries.
After hearing PewDiePie's news, one Twitter user responded with an image of a very confused-looking child and wrote: "Pewdiepie and Marzia’s baby when it has to learn English, Swedish, Italian & Japanese."
Regardless of fan's concern, research has shown that children who are raised in homes speaking more than one language are able to pick up the different languages almost effortlessly, suggesting Kjellberg and Marzia's baby wouldn't struggle too much to understand their parents as they chat.
However, with potentially four different languages to choose from, Kjellberg and Marzia might have to be careful not to mix them up too much. Babies can be difficult enough to understand at the best of times, not to mention when they're speaking Eng-swede-anese-ian.
We've got a good few months before they start having to think about that, though, and while Kjellberg has said Marzia has been experiencing some sickness during her pregnancy, he assured she's 'taking it like an absolute champ' and is looking forward to welcoming the baby into the world.
