The famous YouTuber is married to a woman named Jessica whom he had dated for a few years before exchanging marital vows. Jessica first came into the spotlight as Maximilian Dood’s spouse in June 2017 when her reaction was captured in the Ori and Wills of the Wisps video game trailer. The pair have however been together for a very long time as Max disclosed in a video uploaded to the internet in February 2013 that he got acquainted with his girlfriend turned wife while working at the electronics boutique.
Jessica, who like her husband is also a video game lover, became engrossed with the video game characters she saw at his workplace. This drew them close to each other although they didn’t kick off a love affair at the time due to Dood’s busy life schedule. He was combining his full-time work with college studies.
Following years of great friendship, the pair eventually began dating before becoming man and wife. As a result of their common interest in video games, Jessica has always been supportive of her husband’s career and also plays video games with him. The pair are currently happily married and have never been shy to profess their love for each other on social media.
