Former YouTuber Jenna Marbles has officially tied the knot with her partner of nine years, Julien Solomita. It comes roughly a year and a half after Julien made an impromptu announcement that he and Jenna were engaged during a Twitch Livestream.
He had said during the live stream: “A little while ago, this is weird, I asked Jenna to marry me and she said yes.” So, we are engaged. And that is, er, yeah.”
Julien added, “I just woke up and wanted to be married to her.”
Internet users worldwide seem to be delighted by the newlywed’s status. Most fans are especially thrilled given that Jenna memorably went off the grid back in 2020 after attention was drawn to her past racist videos. In a YouTube video [now deleted], she addressed the controversy at the time and revealed she would try her “best to grow up and be a better person.”
Jenna, in the video, admitted she’s not completely unproblematic and added she’d switched some of her past videos to private because she didn’t want to put out negative things into the world.
She concluded the video by stating she’d be stepping away from the spotlight for now or forever. And indeed, two months later, Jenna stopped recording her and Julien’s joint podcast and said she was focusing on just being a person. Ultimately, the apology and her disappearance from the internet became understood, and fans truly missed her online presence.
Now, Jenna is seen again after Julien shared cute photos from their wedding, and she’s glowing.
The wedding was an outdoor ceremony early last month and the photos were captioned: “Married otters <3,” while showcasing Jenna’s gorgeous wedding gown in detail. The dress, which looked fit for a princess, had long, lacy sleeves and a deep V-neck, as well as a long tulle-style skirt.
And of course, the couple’s dog didn’t hold back at making an appearance in the photos!
Many people have expressed their joy for the longtime couple in floods of social media posts:
“JENNA MARBLES AND JULIEN SOLOMITA GOT MARRIED. EVERYBODY GET OUT OF YOUR SEATS,” someone tweeted.
“Jenna marbles and Julien Solomita finally got married my heart is exploding,” another said.
“Jenna Marbles and Julien Solomita getting married was the reminder i needed that love is, in fact, very real,” a third added.
Currently, the former YouTuber’s name is trending so much across social media that people can’t help but notice.
“I saw Jenna Marbles trending and I was worried thinking people are mad at her again, but turns out she got married. I hope she’s happy,” read one tweet.
“Jenna Marbles is trending, and I’m happy for her.” She hated the internet fame but everyone’s delighted for this news,” said another [now deleted].
The fact that the couple decided to share their big day with fans despite Jenna living a private life has left a few people super emotional.
“Jenna Marbles, who chooses to be fully off the internet, wanting to share her happiest moment with Julien with all of us as well, and letting him post those photos makes me so emotional, I’m so happy for them,” one person wrote.
“This photo made me burst into tears. I celebrate this woman & all the joy she contributed to the internet for many years. I celebrate the fact that she mindfully and intentionally stepped away from the internet. The best of us all who dabbled in YouTube. “Thank you, Jenna Marbles,” another said.
However, Jenna started YouTube videos back in 2010 and became one of the platform’s biggest and best-loved creators thanks to her hilarious skits, sarcastic humor, and her lovable dogs.
