Ulf Christian Kjellberg’s Rise to Stardom

After completing his studies from Chalmers University, Ulf Christian Kjellberg pursued a career in business. He became the CEO and Sales Director of Inobiz, a Swedish software company, and achieved great success in the corporate world. However, his international fame is largely due to the popularity of his son Felix Kjellberg, also known as ‘PewDiePie’.

Felix Kjellberg’s YouTube Success

Felix, an alumnus of Chalmers University, initially worked at a hot dog stand and played video games in his free time. He started uploading recordings of his gameplay on YouTube, which quickly gained him a large following. By July 2012, he had over a million subscribers on his channel, and in August of the same year, he became the most-subscribed user on YouTube. He held this title until 2019 when he was surpassed by the Indian record label T-Series.

Ulf’s International Attention

While Ulf gained attention through his son’s YouTube fame, he also became the subject of speculation among Felix’s fans. Some of Felix’s subscribers believe that Ulf Christian Kjellberg and Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp are the same person due to their similar looks. They argue that Felix once mentioned that Jürgen was like a father to him and that he loved him like a son. Additionally, Felix named his horse in Minecraft after Jürgen. This comparison has become a meme among his fans, who often come up with new conspiracy theories. Recently, after Jürgen was named ‘The Best FIFA Men’s Coach: 2019’, fans of Felix spread false news that PewDiePie’s father had won the best coaching award.

Family & Personal Life

Ulf Christian Kjellberg was born on January 8, 1957, in Gothenburg, Sweden. He completed his secondary education at Polhem, a prestigious Swedish school, and then attended Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg. Ulf met his wife, Lotta Kristine Johanna, while they were both studying at Chalmers University. They got married and have two children: daughter Fanny Lotta Märta Kjellberg and son Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg.

Ulf’s wife, Lotta, has had a successful career as well. She served as the Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Vice President of a Swedish clothing company named KappAhl. She was recognized as the ‘CIO of the Year in Sweden’ in 2010 and received the ‘Golden Touch Award’ while working as the CEO of Volvo Information Technology.

While Ulf and Lotta encouraged Felix to pursue a degree in industrial economics and technology management at Chalmers University, he had different interests. Felix was more drawn to art and video games and felt like a misfit among his peers. Eventually, he left university in 2011 and became the popular YouTuber ‘PewDiePie’. Felix recently married Italian internet personality, fashion designer, and entrepreneur Marzia Kjellberg, whom he first met online in 2011.

Ulf’s daughter, Fanny, works as a recruitment manager and is now married. She goes by the name Fanny Sylwander and lives in Brighton, United Kingdom, with her husband and son Arnold.

Ulf and his family currently reside in Stockholm, Sweden. In his free time, Ulf enjoys playing tennis.
