RussoPlays, also known as “RussoTalks”, is a famous YouTuber, who uploads various Roblox videos onto his channel. He is also a father of two young daughters. Let’s find out more about how he manages to reach the balance between his successful YouTube career and his family life.
Early life, family
Anthony Russo was born on 15 April 1996 in the USA, so his birth sign is Aries, and he holds American nationality. Almost nothing is known about his family – he rarely mentions anything regarding his parents. He once posted a photo of his mother when she passed away in August 2016 after suffering from cancer for several years. He called her a true warrior, and his fans and subscribers left hundreds of condoling comments under the post. Anthony has a sister, whose name is unknown for the moment.
Anthony matriculated from a local high school in 2014. Nothing else is known about his educational background. Most likely, he focused on his YouTube career and family life, as he’s never revealed any plans to go to college or university.
Anthony launched his YouTube channel on 11 September 2014, and started by uploading “Let’s Play” videos for various games such as Pokémon GO and Roblox, switching sometimes to “Let’s Build” and “Let’s Play” videos for Minecraft. While playing Pokémon GO, Anthony edited and uploaded cheat and hack tutorials on this game. He also posted videos of himself playing Minecraft: Money Wars, Clash Royale, Slither.io, and other games.
As for the moment, he has more than 1,500 videos on his “RussoPlays” channel. His most popular video is called “BUYING THE INFINITE PET GAMEPASS IN PET SIMULATOR *40k ROBUX* (Roblox)”, which has over 2.5 million views. As for now, Anthony is working on his own Roblox game; he has recently announced on Twitter that he is searching for an experienced Roblox games developer for his new project. He is now a member of a new YouTube channel crew called “Roblox Battles”, which is updated with many videos on various Roblox in-game challenges, and other entertainment content.
Personal life, girlfriend Megan Bennett, two daughters
Anthony has been living with his long-term girlfriend Megan Bennett for several years already. They started dating at the end of 2015, though Anthony once said in one of his videos that Megan used to be an old friend of his sister, when they were still in middle school. They kept in touch briefly for many years, and then occasionally talked privately and understood they had a lot in common. Anthony shared the plan is to marry in future, however that hasn’t happened yet. During these almost four years of their relationship, they’ve welcomed two daughters, Bella Dawn Russo born in May 2017, and Ariel Aurora Russo in July 2018. Anthony and Megan match well since they shared a passion for video games and Disney cartoons. When they found out Megan was pregnant with their first daughter, they went to Disney World and made a picture of three pairs of sneakers, two of them for adults and one for a very small kid. In such a way they announced that a daughter was joining their family in May 2017.
It is worth saying that their daughters’ names are chosen from Disney cartoons. Megan’s favorite characters are Belle from “The Beauty and the Beast”, Aurora from “The Sleeping Beauty” and Ariel from “The Mermaid”, so she and Anthony used the names of the princesses from Disney cartoons and named both daughters after them. Megan graduated from Keiser University in 2013, and even got on the Dean’s list for outstanding academic achievements. Her mother, Gia Bennett, is also suffering from metastatic breast cancer, just like Anthony’s mother, though Gia is successfully undergoing treatment. Megan is a blogger and a painter now – she also adores cosmetics and makeup.
Family Vlog and Instagram profiles for both daughters
Anthony and Megan have a separate YouTube channel for their family vlogs, on which they post videos of their daily routine, travelling vlogs and others. One of their most popular videos is called “Baby’s Hilarious Reaction for Gender Reveal of New Baby”, and has around 65,000 views. The video is way too funny because their elder daughter Bella bursts out crying when she hears the gender of her future sibling, as soon as Megan and Anthony say: ‘It’s a girl!’, Bella starts crying so they both jump up and try to calm her. In general, the channel has over 40,000 subscribers and around 200 videos.
Anthony and Megan also created two separate Instagram profiles for their daughters and post their photo each week, highlighting the latest achievements or events happening to their daughters and family. Bella’s profile has over 2,000 subscribers, and Ariel’s profile has almost 1,000. It’s worth saying that before having kids, Anthony had a totally different opinion of kids; he once wrote on his Instagram, sharing a photo of his friend’s daughter: ‘Children. Babies. Infants. They may seem calm and casual, like tiny adult humans. But alas, they are genuine spawns of Satan himself. The dark overlord summoned these miniature beings to crush us as a whole’. For sure, it was a joke, however, Anthony most likely changed his mind when he got his own kids.
