If you identify yourself with the word gamer, you must have across the name Ninja, who happens to be one of the most widely known personalities in the gaming arena. While he is already one of the most well-known streamers of the current times, he is looking to push his horizons and makes headlines by coming up with new content and collaborations etc. Despite becoming a household name, people only recognise him by his online alias.

What is Ninja’s real name?

Notably, the 30-year-old was born in Michigan in the United States and is originally named Tyler Blevins. It might surprise the gaming community but Tyler happens to be a family man, in sharp contrast to his hyper and excited self on the stream. In a recent question and answer session, Ninja opened up about how he enjoys his family time.

How does Ninja spend his time?

Answering a fan question in this video, Ninja explains that he loves his family time and usually spends this on activities like going out for dining, riding roller coasters, and watching movies with his wife Jessica Blevins.

Despite being an owner of vast amounts of wealth, Tyler has his own reservations about money and the complexities of life that come with it. “If you have money, 90% of the time or more, you’ve sacrificed a lot… and then, you have that money and guess what, now you don’t know who to trust,” he had famously stated.

It should be noted that Ninja had become the first streamer in the world to make over 100 million from gaming alone.
