Popular Twitch streamer Tim ‘TimTheTatMan’ Bertar revealed the gender of his child during a live broadcast in September 2018 – and now, the newest addition of his family has finally arrived.

Tim announced that he and his wife, Alexis, would be heading to the hospital the night of April 8, after a 40 week pregnancy.

The streamer continued to update fans on their journey with a series of videos via Twitter, where he later explained that Alexis would be undergoing labor on April 10 after a day of preparation.

However, their son took his time meeting the world, waiting until the afternoon of April 11 to finally make his appearance – which Tim announced in an emotional video holding the newborn, who the couple had named ‘Brewer.’

“I am happy to announce that I am a father and Alexis is a mother to our wonderful son, Brewer,” Tim said. “It was a pretty crazy process. He’s finally here, though.”

Brewer’s birth was met with excitement from personalities across social media, with the likes of Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, Nadeshot, TSM Myth and more offering their excited congratulations to the couple.

The viral pregnancy announcement and live streamed gender reveal

Brewer’s journey was documented in several streams prior to his birth, with Tim showing a video of Alexis surprising him with her pregnancy announcement during a broadcast in late September of 2018.

That’s not all; the two later announced Brewer’s gender during a live stream shortly thereafter, releasing color-coded confetti after a highly-anticipated countdown that revealed their child to be a boy.

While Tim himself was convinced they were having a girl, his audience felt otherwise, voting 58% to 42% that he would have a son – whose name he kept under wraps until his birth.

Tim has since offered sincere thanks to all the fans and friends keeping up with he and Alexis’s journey, noting that he would be taking a break from streaming until his wife is cleared from the hospital.

TimTheTatMan is a popular streamer on Twitch, with over 3 million followers on the platform. 

He is known for his joint broadcasts with Ninja, DrLupo, and other major names in the Fortnite scene – although his fans will have to wait to see him hop in the game again for a little while longer.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
