Who are Ethan and Hila? Are They Married in Real life?

If you don’t know who Ethan and Hila Klein are, it’s time to find out. They are the proud owners of the  h3h3Productions channel, or simply h3h3. They started this channel in 2013, its main theme being reaction videos. The duo billed their content as ‘h3h3 reaction videos’. While traditional reaction videos are simply of people reacting to stuff, Ethan and Hila took it one step further. Their content consists of a video accompanied by the couple’s commentary on it and hilariously absurd sketches. The channel grew up pretty fast. Right now, it is one of the most watched channels out there, with almost 4 million subscribers. The couple has been married for 5 years now.


Ethan and Hila are one of the most loved couples of YouTube. Although Hila does state her opinions and appears in almost every video, Ethan is the main voice of h3h3. The couple puts together comedy sketches, parodying many YouTubers. Ethan’s trademark is his way of expressing his displeasure. He does that by coughing. They have collaborated with many other famous YouTubers. Such are TVFilthyFrank, iDubbbzTV, and JonTron. Although they are some of the most honest YouTubers out there, the couple also has their haters. They have even been sued by some people that they criticized.

Matthew Hosseinzadeh, the owner of YouTube channel MattHossZone, filed a civil action against the couple in 2016. One month later, the Kleins uploaded a video, explaining what was going on. Vlogger Philip DeFranco started a fundraiser on GoFundMe to help them pay their legal fees. So far, a great number of famous YouTubers, such as PewDiePie, Markiplier, and The Fine Bros have pitched in, raising almost $180 thousand dollars.

Ethan and Hila’s wedding

The duo met in Israel. Hila was serving as a soldier in the Israel Defense Forces, and Ethan was on a trip. Little did he know, she was his soon to be wife. They became close friends and got romantically involved only after Klein moved back to the US. Eventually, they moved in together in Israel. In 2012, they got married. There is an ongoing joke among Ethan and Hila and their fans that Hila is not actually Ethan’s wife, but his carer. At some point, during an h3h3 Q&A video, someone even asked to see proof that the two are married. In response to that, Hila showed the ring she got when she became his wife. Also, they showed a few pictures from their wedding.
