Famous internet personalities are the new celebrities. Fans want to know more than what they are shown in videos and social media posts. Are our favorite internet stars dating? How do they live when they aren’t smiling for the camera?
Jimmy Donaldson, better known as MrBeast, is one of those YouTube sensations that people ask such questions about. Up until mid-2019, not many details were available about MrBeast’s private life, but he recently dropped one special tidbit about his relationship status.
Here’s what you need to know.
Donaldson has been rather secretive about his private life throughout the years, but being that he’s a YouTube personality, bits and pieces shine through. MrBeast was born on May 7, 1998 and he lives in North Carolina. You probably already know, but he is currently one of the most popular YouTubers, having over 43 million subscribers on his channel.
Because MrBeast is so focused on his professional career as a YouTube star, when he announced that he had a girlfriend, most fans were surprised.
MrBeast officially announced he was dating Maddy Spidell in June 2019. As with many facets of Donaldson’s life, it remains unclear how MrBeast and Maddy Spidell met and exactly when they began dating, though some clues point to 2018.
Spidell is a known Instagram influencer. She was born March 31, 2000 and she is from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where she also currently attends college. She will graduate in 2022 with a bachelor’s degree in business. Additionally, Spidell is a traveler, Instagram model, and a dancer. At the young age of two, she started taking dance classes at a studio in Wisconsin and even performed with her high school cheerleading squad. She also became the captain of the squad, winning several awards.
Reception of the Relationship
Reportedly, the relationship with Spidell was met with backlash after the announcement that she and MrBeast were dating. Internet trolls attacked her by saying that she was after his money, but she tweeted a response that set everyone straight:
If it wasn’t clear—
I don’t want Mr Beast for his money, just want a bf with good taste in anime who can make me laugh
Leave me alone and let me have an unattainable internet crush lmfaoMaddy Spindell
Since then, more and more fans have embraced their relationship. You can even find photo compilations featuring MrBeast and Spidell on YouTube. It is estimated that, after she began dating MrBeast, Spidell gained over 290,000 followers on Instagram.

Since June 2019, the couple has repeatedly shared pictures and videos of them on their Instagram, TikTok, and YouTube accounts. They spent last year’s Thanksgiving and Christmas together, sharing photos of the occasions. One of the more popular posts was on February 14, 2020, when Donaldson surprised Spidell with a gorgeous display of 100 thousand roses.
