Ultra-popular YouTube star Roman Atwood has finally returned to the platform after over seven months of inactivity — and he’s got a major life update to share with his viewers in wake of his hiatus.

Roman Atwood is one of YouTube’s most popular vloggers and family channels, boasting over 15 million subscribers thanks to the creative and hilarious antics he gets into with his wife and children.

However, the YouTuber went dark around a year ago, revealing to fans that his mother had passed away after falling off of a scooter at 80 years of age, hitting her head and “immediately losing all vitals.”

The tragic incident saw an outpouring of support from viewers and Atwood took an extended break from making content — a hiatus that he finally emerged from in August 2020 in two back-to-back videos.

In his first video of 2020, Atwood revealed that he wants to tell fans why he’d been gone for so long but explained that now isn’t the right time, but assured those worrying about him that both he and his family are completely healthy and safe.

His next video, however, brought forth a major update for the Atwood family: the upcoming introduction of a new addition to the clan.

Roman and his wife, Brittney, revealed that they are purposefully holding off from learning the baby’s gender until its birth, which is scheduled to occur on New Year’s Eve.

“We wanted to be the first to tell you guys this,” Roman admitted, noting that a few “internet detectives” had already guessed their surprise. “We wanted to try to bring some joy into your world, as well.”

“It isn’t the reason that we left,” Brittney added. “We left long before I got pregnant.”

That’s not all; Atwood even revealed that they’d initially wanted to tease fans with a hint before uploading his previous vlog, but decided against it until they could make an official announcement.

Thus far, Brittney is 21 roughly weeks pregnant, meaning that the couple has about five months until they meet their new child; and it’s safe to say that fans are just as excited as they are, even if the reason for their hiatus is still up in the air.

Twitch streamer Quin69’s viewers can literally flashbang him by donating

A Twitch streamer has found a way to let his viewers flashbang him in real life — and it looks absolutely hilarious.

As streaming grows, it becomes increasingly harder for aspiring creators to really stand out among their peers, and you’ll often see that some of the top streamers have something unique about them, or their stream, that keeps viewers coming back for more.

The best example of this is someone like Dr Disrespect, who adopts the Doc persona whenever he goes live and feeds into the character, offering fans something a little more unique.

So, to stand out among the crowd, you need something original — and Quin69 might have found the best solution.

Quin69 keeps up a spirited stream for his viewers, and this flashbang feature only adds to it.

While streamers often take donations from fans who are looking to show support, Quin has given his viewers a little something extra.

That’s because if you donate a certain amount to Quin’s stream, you hear the call of “throwing flashbang” before the room goes bright white, with Quin forced to close his eyes or squint through the flash if he wants to continue playing.

As you can see below, it doesn’t look like a massively enjoyable experience for the streamer, who has to sit through the pain; but it definitely looks amusing for the viewer.

He clearly tries to shrug it off and acts as though it doesn’t bother him, but we can only imagine how often his viewers flashbang him while in an intense moment of whatever game he’s playing which, truthfully, makes it all the more funny.

For a good example, here’s him being flashed while in a boss fight on Path of Exile, at the worst possible moment.

Of course, it’s all fun and games, and Quin wouldn’t have the option there if it truly bothered him, but we can only imagine how many games he loses momentum in thanks to temporary blindness.
