The popular steamer announced the news during a 24-hour charity livestream on December 23, before he was unceremoniously killed by a player called FunkOps on Fortnite.  

“I don’t even care, FunkOps you enjoy that dude” he said, before his wife came rushing into the room to give him a hug. “That’s a million dollars in one year. I love you.” 

The clip below, which was saved by MrsDrLupo, allowed the couple to capture and share their emotional reaction after they had reached their donation goal.
