League of Legends streamer Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp may have secretly proposed to his girlfriend while on vacation in Hawaii, according to Macaiyla on her return to Twitch.

Divisive Twitch personality Tyler1 took some time away from streaming to treat his girlfriend of three years to a sunny getaway at Turtle Bay in Oahu, before jetting back to Detroit to make a hilarious appearance at the League of Legends Championship Series finals.

Apparently, before he partnered with Riot Games for the comedic mid-game segment, however, Tyler1 popped the question to Macaiyla. The only problem is, he may not have been able to afford an engagement ring.

“Oh yeah, Tyler proposed, we’re married,” said Macaiyla when asked what the couple did in Hawaii. “Me and T! After three years of being together we’re married.”

She added that her boyfriend, who returned to streaming League of Legends on Twitch after being unbanned at the beginning of 2018, didn’t have enough money for a ring: “He didn’t get me a ring. He doesn’t have enough money right now, but we got engaged in Hawaii.”

Macaiyla - TwitchMacaiyla may have spilled the beans on Tyler1’s proposal.

Needless to say her Twitch chat, most of whom tune in to interact with her about Tyler, exploded with jokes and questions. One told Macaiyla her boyfriend was making a big mistake, which caused her to explode in a rant about the perfect girlfriend.

“What do you mean big mistake?” she said. “Why would him marrying me be a big mistake, please go on? He deserves better? Are you out of your mind? No, he doesn’t deserve better.”

“The only reason you’re saying this is because you hate my chin” she added. “You don’t want him to date a girl with a big chin, that’s it. You want a hot Asian girl or a girl with big tits that streams in Just Chatting to 4k people or something. No, fuck off, I am his girlfriend.”

Macaiyla then immediately rebuked the idea the couple had actually tied the knot, suggesting Tyler may have just got down on one knee: “No, we’re not married.”

It seems like Macaiyla may have been baiting her chat about actually marrying Tyler, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t get proposed in Hawaii nonetheless. Whatever the situation, let’s hope one of LoL’s biggest streamers can actually afford a ring if he does pop the question.

Singer-songwriter Halsey is pregnant – and social media, from influencers and YouTubers to countless fans, has lit up with congratulations for the beloved cultural sensation.

Ashley ‘Halsey’ Nicolette Frangipane is an American singer-songwriter with Grammy nominations, Billboard accolades and, above all else, a feverish social media following. Known for her activism and eclecticism, the musician has become a cultural icon with fans across the world.

That variety of fans is not restrained to just social media stans, either, as the singer has apparently amassed a ton of appreciation from fellow influencers. Some of the biggest names from YouTube and social media have popped up congratulating her, nestled between messages from the 36.9 million followers Halsey boasts throughout Instagram and Twitter. 

Posting a “surprise” Instagram carousel of baby bump pictures, the 26-year-old’s comment section is filled with verified check marks sending their love and joy. From established models (and fellow activists) like Emily Ratajkowski to YouTube superstars like James Charles, the support has been nothing short of overflowing.

In the replies to Halsey’s viral IG post, influencer Gabbie Hanna was joined by TikTok legend Addison Rae by sending an ecstatic “congratulations” message. Singer Olivia Rodrigo, whose “Drivers License” track has gone viral on TikTok, joined in too, but wasn’t satisfied with just one message.

In all caps (the pinnacle of excitement), Rodrigo sent a “YESSSS” before following up with a “SENDING U SO MUCH LOVE.”

Similarly uppercased, Charles chimed in with a reply that seems to concisely echo the sentiments shared by all of Halsey’s fans and friends: “CONGRATULATIONS AHHH.”

Aside from being happy about the idea of a mini version of Halsey entering the world, close fans are likely well-aware of how meaningful the moment is for her. The singer has been candid about her past with infertility and her desire for a child, as a 2015 miscarriage prompted the song “More” on her Manic album.

In the wake of such a harrowing history with the desire to bear a child, the news of Halsey’s pregnancy is certainly cause for celebration. Caps-locked congratulations are most certainly in order and few, influencers and fans alike, have held back in rejoicing with the singer and her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin.

“More,” too, can now be played with added joy. Some of its more expressive lyrics take on a new dimension, as a foreseeing welcome to her baby: “And when you decide it’s your time to arrive, I’ve loved you for all of my life.”
