PewDiePie and Marzia have welcomed a baby boy

The YouTuber announced the news with pictures of the newborn

YouTuber PewDiePie has announced that he and his wife, Marzia, have welcomed a baby boy.

And what a little cu-tie-pie he is! ... See what I did there?

The content creator, whose real name is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, shared the exciting news of the new arrival in a post on Instagram today (12 July), one day after his son was born.

The birth comes after PewDiePie first announced that he and Marzia were expecting a baby in one of the best ways he knows how - via YouTube.

PewDiePie announced the arrival of his son on Instagram.

The video, posted in February, got straight to the point with the title, 'We're having a baby!'.

The 33-year-old admitted in the video that he'd been 'keeping a secret' from his millions of subscribers, adding: "And that is, I'm going to be a dad."

PewDiePie used the video to reveal photos of Marzia's growing belly, as well as sonogram photos of their little bun in the oven.

"It's kind of strange to me, it's entering new territory, but I feel really ready and so does Marzia," he said at the time.

The YouTuber also expressed his happiness to be welcoming a child with Marzia, who he described as 'the most loving and caring person I know'.

"I have no doubt she'll be an amazing mother," PewDiePie said.

Marzia and Kjellberg tied the knot on 19 August, 2019, exactly eight years after they first met.

The pair got married in 2019.

After the baby arrived this week, the new dad shared images of himself and Marzia cooing over the newest member of their family.

He also revealed his son's name, writing: "11 / 07 / 2023. Welcome to the family, little Björn."

The news that the pair have welcomed a baby boy means that some clues viewers picked up on in one of PewDiePie's recent videos proved to be correct.

In May, PewDiePie uploaded another video titled, 'Think it’s time we did a gender reveal'.

The post didn't explicitly announce the baby's gender, but included scenes of Koinbori; streamers shaped like koi fish.

Such decorations are often hung up in celebration of Children's Day; a national holiday celebrating kids in Japan, where PewDiePie and Marzia relocated. However, the day stems from a holiday called Tango no sekku, which specifically honors male children.

Needless to say, fans can't get enough of the newest little member of the PewDiePie family now that he's actually here.

"Little baby Björn. So happy for you, I love you so so so much!! Congratulations," one fan wrote.

"It’s crazy to think Pewds was raising us for years on [YouTube], now he’s got something of his own to raise," another added.
