The ACE Family has finally decided to stop growing their ranks after the birth of their son, Steel McBroom, in late June — but some fans aren’t too sure how to feel about this sudden decision.

The ACE Family is one of YouTube’s most popular family channels, boasting over 19 million subscribers due to their humorous videos that follow their daily lives.

The family is comprised of five members: Father Austin McBroom, mother Catherine Paiz, daughters Elle and Alaïa, and newborn son Steel McBroom.

After welcoming their newest member in June, the ACE Family has decided to put any further additions on indefinite hold, as told in a video uploaded on August 11 that has divided some viewers.

In their video, Paiz revealed that she decided to receive an IUD, rather than McBroom undergoing a vasectomy, as Paiz’s healthcare physician claimed the ACE family patriarch was “too young” for the procedure.

Although Catherine claimed she “really doesn’t think” she’ll want to have any more children in the next five to ten years, she isn’t completely ruling out any future plans, stating that “life is full of mysteries” and “surprises.”

“So, pretty much, ACE Family, this is the end of our having babies journey,” McBroom explained. “We have a full, big, complete family now, and we couldn’t be any happier.”

However, some fans are divided as to the couple’s decision, with commenters expressing dismay over the toll having three children may have taken on Paiz’s body in four years – as well as her taking responsibility for the birth control.

“I can’t even count how many times Catherine says SHE is done bearing and birthing children, yet everyone around her is throwing around the ‘what ifs,’” one user wrote. “Let this woman have say of her own body and mental health.”

“It’s not fair that Catherine had to take one for the team yet again,” another chimed in. “She just gave birth, and now this.”

Commenters were largely divided as to the specifics of the ACE Family’s decision to stop having kids – most notably, who was in charge of the birth control.

“I feel like Austin loves his kids, it’s just he is always counting on Catherine for everything,” another viewer expressed. “I believe it going to take a horrible mental toll on her if he doesn’t step in.”

Despite fan concerns, the couple appears to be happy and welcoming of their big change as they focus on raising the three little ones they have already brought into the world.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
