Jacob Sartorius enjoys opening up his life to his fans on social media, but he recently shared what might be his most revealing video yet. The web star says that he was adopted by his parents, and finally felt that it was time to tell his fans.
"Although I grew up in Virginia like most of you know, I was actually born in Oklahoma. At the time, my birth parents weren't able to take care of me, so they made a plan for me to be adopted. Luckily for me, I was blessed to be able to be adopted by two of the most loving parents in the world, my mom and my dad," he said in a new YouTube video.
"Growing up in Virginia with them and my amazing sister Caroline, I've had the best childhood any kid could ask for."
Jacob says that even though he hasn't actively kept his adoption a secret, he felt that it was time to let his fans know.
"Being adopted is something I've never tried to hide or keep a secret. My friends and family have known all of this, but I think it's the right time for you guys to know too. We've grown so much together in such a short period of time, and I know this is only going to make us closer," he said.
After hearing the supportive comments from fans, he tweeted the sweetest message to the fandom, thanking them for being such a strong "family."
These are the moments when I realize how strong we are as a family 😭❤️ thanks for being there for me when I'm not at my highs... I LOVE YOU— Jacob Sartorius (@jacobsartorius) August 23, 2016
