Known as a friend and mentor to children worldwide, Blippi is a fan-favorite character played by Stevin John. He teaches kids to count letters, learn colors and alphabets.

The content creator gained massive recognition as a curious and energetic man with a signature blue shirt, orange suspenders, a blue and orange beanie cap, a matching orange bow tie, and grey pants.

While the entire world may know him as a friendly teacher, Blippi's actor John is more than his character. Here is what we know about his personal life. 

Blippi Is Engaged to His Girlfriend

John has been in an enduring relationship with his long-time girlfriend, Alyssa Ingham. The pair started dating in 2015 and got engaged in August 2021. 

The YouTuber took to Instagram to announce his engagement with his girlfriend. He posted a gallery of pictures of the special moment that took place on a beach in Malibu, California.

Photographed by Matter Takes, the pictures saw John proposing to his partner on one knee with a round-cut engagement ring complete with diamonds engraved on the band.

The pair looked ecstatic as they shared a passionate kiss under the sunset and held each other's hands.

Making the post more special, John exclaimed, "I got upgraded from boyfriend to fiancé!" in the caption. He also tagged his girlfriend and expressed his delight, stating he was excited to spend the rest of his life with her. 

Without a surprise, John's post was met with an outpouring of love, support, and well-wishes.

American comedian Colin Kane left a red heart emoji in the comment section while fellow content creator Katie Pie penned, "Congrats, you guys!!" with two heart-eyes emojis.

In addition, 'Barcelona' singer Matthew Koma joined in the celebration and requested John to do a Blippi wedding edition. 

While it's not sure if the YouTube sensation would adhere to the request, there is no doubt a wedding is on the way for the couple.

Blippi's girlfriend, let's say his fiancée now, is an experienced communications manager with a history of working in Youth Development.

The registered behavior technician worked as a youth activities coordinator at AmeriCorps for two years, starting in September 2015.

In January 2018, the 28-year-old joined Kideo Productions, Inc. as a communications manager in Seattle, Washington, and is serving the company to date. 

Off the clock, she spends quality time with John, and their two adopted dogs — a Goldendoodle named Lyno and a Boxer/Pitbull named Lily. They all live together as a family in Washington. 

In August 2018, John shared his plans on having kids during an interview with The Spinoff. He shared he might want children of his own with his partner sometime "down the road."
