The guy who told his wife she was pregnant admitted to having an Ashley Madison account

He apologised in a video last night.

A FEW WEEKS ago, Sam and Nia Rader, two YouTube vloggers, went viral after he broke the news to her that she was pregnant.

If you haven’t seen the video, Sam did this by taking a sample of his wife’s urine from the toilet without her consent and used this sample on a pregnancy test.

He went on to record the moment he told his wife the big news and the video was viewed over 14 million times. Just two days later, the couple announced that they had had a miscarriage in a video that has drawn widespread skepticism.

Since then, the couple has been very active on YouTube and Sam has stated that he has quit his day job so the couple can focus on vlogging full-time.

Yesterday, it was revealed that Sam Rader had a paid Ashley Madison account and that his personal information was included in this week’s user data leak.

Last night, Sam and Nia addressed the matter in a video entitled Forgiveness.

In the video, Sam confessed to setting up an account with the cheating site two years ago, but stated that he had never had an affair nor met anyone from the site face-to-face.

Hi guys, as you may have seen, my name has been associated with an Ashley Madison account, a website made for spouses who want to have an affair. I did make the account. I made the account two years ago. This is an issue that is in our past. This was before I got onto YouTube.

He stated that both his wife and God have forgiven him for the transgression.

This was brought to my wife’s attention. She has forgiven me for this mistake that I made and opening the account. I’ve sought forgiveness from God and he has forgiven me, so I have been completely cleansed of this sin.

He added that the account was set up out of “pure fleshly desires” and “just sinful curiosity”.

Nia, who sat by her husband’s side in the video, said that she had forgiven her husband and that she would continue to stand behind him.

And I just want to add too, guys, you know, I have forgiven Sam and I stand behind him, and this is in our past. And it’s unfortunate that its being dug up right now, but you know, our marriage is worth fighting for. And it always will be.

The video has been viewed over 140,000 times thus far and the couple say that it is their intention to continue vlogging and “not allow Satan any foothold in our lives”.
