Family & Personal Life
Maxmello was born on April 27, 1986, in Australia. Little else is known about his family and upbringing.
Unlike her fiancé, Wengie, whose real name is Wendy Ayche, was born in Guangzhou, China, and she relocated with her family to Australia as a child. On September 9, 2010, she set up her YouTube channel. However, she began posting videos on it in April 2013. Since then, her social media presence and influence have grown exponentially. She has over 13 million subscribers on the main channel and over a billion views in total. Wengie also operates ‘Wengie Music’ and ‘Wengie Music Asia YouTube’ channels. On the former, she posts her English tracks, while the latter is used for her Chinese tracks. In June 2013, she created her vlogging channel ‘WengieVlogs,’ which she later renamed ‘Wendie Ft. Wengie.’ At present, the channel has over a million subscribers.
Max and Wengie met in 2000, at the Year 10 Ball of their high school. She was attending the event with one of her former boyfriends and speaking to their mutual friends when Max approached them and asked them if he could take pictures of them. Reluctantly, they agreed, and Max took two photographs of Wengie, her date and their friends before making his departure. They did not see each other for the following ten years. Sometime in 2010, Wengie started taking dance lessons. She subsequently attended a dance audition at a prestigious school in the hope of enrolment there. As it turned out, Max was one of the judges. Neither of them initially recognized the other. After she got accepted, they became friends, and soon enough, they were hanging out together. However, both of them were in relationships with other people at the time, so all the interactions were strictly platonic.
One day after practice, Max pulled her aside and told her that he wanted to speak to her. While they were friends at the time, they were not that close. As a result, his action surprised her. After they sat down, he poured out all his problems with women to her. Although this was quite uncomfortable for her, this made the connection between them deeper. Eventually, they both became busier in their respective lives. Max was attending university while Wengie was focused on her dance career. They kept in touch via text messages. In 2011, they got together briefly for an egg-plant-fruit cook-off, which Wengie claims she won. By 2014, they both were single. Wengie decided to return the favour to Max from all those years ago by telling him about her own relationship issues. Not long after, they began dating. During their trip to US in 2015, the couple got engaged at the Yosemite National Park in California. She revealed the news to her fans through her Instagram in August 2015.
Despite the fact that the couple initially wanted a short engagement, they have not exchanged wedding vows as of May 2019, prompting many of their viewers to speculate about the reason.
