One of Twitch's biggest names Tyler Steinkamp aka Tyler1 and his long-time girlfriend Macaiyla have welcomed the arrival of their first child, Saiyler Rue Steinkamp. For those unaware, the couple met at TwitchCon for the first time in 2016 and started dating shortly afterward. They live in New London, Missouri, and are now ready to welcome a third member to the house.

Both Tyler and Macaiyla took to their respective social media accounts to share the news. The couple posted a picture of the baby girl via their official Instagram handle, stating how the name "Saiyler" is a combination of their first names. She was born on April 11, 2024. They wrote:

"Saiyler Rue Steinkamp. A mix of mom and dad's names. Our miracle baby girl."

The Steinkamp family has expanded with the addition of Tyler1 and Macaiyla's first child, a daughter named Saiyler Rue Steinkamp. They first shared the news of the pregnancy through their social media account back in December 2023, when Macaiyla was 17 weeks pregnant.

They finally welcomed their child last Thursday (April 11) and have since shared a handful of glimpses of their daughter through a series of pictures:

Tyler hasn't been as active recently, particularly over the past month or so. These days, he's been more focused on honing his skills in chess rather than creating his usual League of Legends content. However, with the arrival of their child, it's expected that he'll be busier in the next few weeks.
