The famous YouTuber is married to a woman named Jessica whom he had dated for a few years before exchanging marital vows.

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.

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.
