The most popular YouTube star in the world appears to have gotten married. But unlike the fake wedding perpetuated by Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau, PewDiePie’s marriage to longtime girlfriend Marzia seems to be real.

On Tuesday morning, he shared wedding photos on Twitter, and his fans exploded with joy at his new relationship status.

“We are married!!! I’m the happiest I can be,” PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, wrote on Twitter. “I’m so lucky to share my life with this amazing woman.”

PewDiePie has been with his girlfriend, Marzia Bisognin, for nearly a decade. She had more than 7 million YouTube subscribers—she was originally known as CutePieMarzia—before she left YouTube in 2018 after she said struggled to understand why she wanted to keep making content.

She came across his gaming channel in the early part of this decade, and only a few months after they began dating, she moved from Italy to Sweden to live with him (now they live in the U.K.). Since then, they’ve become one of the best-known and most popular couples on the platform. And unlike a variety of other YouTubers who used their relationship (and the eventual breakup) as content for their vlogs, PewDiePie and Marzia seemingly have stayed strong for the past eight years.

Marzia, meanwhile, posted this shot on Instagram.

She wrote, “Yesterday, the 19th of August—after exactly 8 years since we met—we celebrated our wedding with our closest friends and family. It was the most beautiful day, which I will treasure forever. I am so thankful for all the people that made time to attend the event and helped us celebrate our marriage. I feel like I’m the luckiest person and I’m so full of love. Incredibly ecstatic to be able to call Felix my husband for the rest of our lives.”

Unlike the fake Las Vegas wedding between Paul and Mongeau, there were no reports of a brawl at PewDiePie and Marzia’s ceremony.
