Sam & Nia Pregnancy Video Again On The Spotlight After Ashley Madison Documentary

The couple is featured in the new Netflix documentary, “Ashley Madison S*x, Lies and Scandal.”

Who remembers the viral Christian couple video where the husband shocks his wife with a pregnancy announcement? We’re talking about Sam and Nia, the YouTubers who were shot to fame eight years ago.

Key Takeaways

  • Family channel YouTubers Sam and Nia have again been a hot topic after they were featured on a Netflix documentary, “Ashley Madison S*x, Lies and Scandal.”
  • They were in hot water after many people alleged that their 2015 pregnancy and miscarriage announcement video was fake.
  • In the mini-series, it was revealed that he was unfaithful to her throughout their marriage but has reconciled since.

Sam and Nia Rader, the high school sweethearts, posted an almost 8-minute-long YouTube video on August 5, 2015, sharing the news of their pregnancy.

The video “HUSBAND SHOCKS WIFE WITH PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT! | Sam & Nia” has garnered 19 million views and criticism.

People began to suspect the video was staged as many questions were raised, including “Is it accurate to take the test from a toilet bowl?” and “Why didn’t they do an actual test?

On top of that, a few weeks later, they posted a now-deleted video, “Our Baby Had A Heartbeat,” where she explained they had a miscarriage.

This fueled the fake rumor, and her viewers again questioned their authenticity and asked for receipts.

In their defense as to why they didn’t visit a doctor after the miscarriage, they mentioned that Sam is an ER nurse and everything was under control.

Moreover, on December 17, 2018, a YouTuber named Pimink released a video titled “The Vlogging Family Who Faked Their Baby | Sam and Nia.”

In it, he dissected the couple’s channel and even alleged that their viral pregnancy video may be fake.

Similarly, a reddit user wrote about the rumor about a year ago,

Wasn’t there speculation that this whole thing was fake? They did a video shortly after saying she miscarried, and people began to think she was never really pregnant and they just planned the whole things for views. Which would be pretty gross.
Also… would toilet water even work for a test???? You’re not even supposed to test after drinking too much water because it can dilute the pee and cause a false negative. How much is she peeing that a whole toilet bowl full of water wouldn’t dilute it too much?
Whole thing was messy.

Cheating Scandal And Netflix Series

The couple is featured in the new Netflix documentary, “Ashley Madison Sex Lies and Scandal.”

The documentary is based on the 2015 data breach of the married dating site “Ashley Madison,” in which hackers released the details of 36 million users.

Surprisingly, the Christian YouTuber Sam Rader was one of them.

It was revealed that Sam allegedly made two payments of $189 to the app in September 2013, the same month his second child was born and he celebrated his fourth wedding anniversary.

In addition, four additional $14 payments appear on the account, which allegedly match his name and location.

The sad thing was he and his wife announced a miscarriage just days before the news broke out.

After widespread criticism, Sam uploaded a since-deleted video, “Forgiven,” on his YouTube and said,

This is an issue that is in our past. This was before I got onto YouTube. This was brought to my wife’s attention. She has forgiven me for this mistake that I made in opening the account.


In the documentary, Sam went into detail about the aftermath of the leak and said,

I can’t blame anybody but myself, and I’m not angry at Ashley Madison, definitely not angry at the hackers. I was already on a horrible path when Ashley Madison was advertised to me. I just see it as the Lord exposing me and bringing me to bringing me out of the darkness, so I can’t be mad at anybody because this is one of the best things that ever happened to me.


Furthermore, they released a book, Sam & Nia Live in Truth,” on May 15, 2024, which goes deep inside the controversy and summarizes everything that has happened since then.

After the mini-series aired, Nia posted a video on Instagram, jotting her thoughts and saying, “They stayed true to our story, and I’m thankful for that,” and “Our story wasn’t made the joke of the show.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

  • The couple is the parents of four children: Symphony (13), Abram (10), Juliet (8), and Josie (3).
  • Their first YouTube video was uploaded 16 years ago, in 2007.
  • Right now, they have 2.51 million subscribers and over a billion views.
