A major figure in the online viral video evangelical vlogging world once had a paid account on the cheating website AshleyMadison.com.
Sam Rader, who is best known for “surprising” his wife with her own positive pregnancy test in a recent viral video, had the AM account in 2013 according to an exclusive report from the Daily Mail. Rader has well over 300,000 followers on the YouTube channel Sam and Nia that he operates with his wife, and posts almost daily videos affirming their Christian faith and love for Jesus.
Rader, who is a 29-year-old father of two children, allegedly made two $189 payments to Ashley Madison in September of 2013 — the same month his second child was born and he celebrated four years of marriage with his 26-year-old wife Nia, who shares his viral stardom.

From the Daily Mail:
The account details shared on Twitter and the 4chan forum – allegedly taken from the hacked Ashley Madison data – show Mr Rader’s name, his town of Terrell, Texas, and a zip code which Daily Mail Online can verify matches his home address.
It also shows the user registered under an email address consisting of his name @becausethatswhy.com.
Mr Rader, who also works as a photographer, registered that domain name in 2011. The email comes up as a certified member of Ashley Madison on the many sites now established for suspicious spouses to check on their partner.
Ashley Madison is freely accessible site but users must buy credits to send messages: $49 gets 100 credits, while $250 earns 1,000 credits and a money-back ‘affair guarantee’ if you don’t have an affair within three months.
Altogether the records imply that he bought a total of around 800 credits. His profile ceases to be active after the final payment in November 2013.
Earlier this month, the pair became Internet sensations when two videos, one showing Rader surprising Nia with news of her pregnancy, and the second where they tearfully announce that she had miscarried, went hugely viral.
Nia’s miscarriage was met with wide criticism across the Internet, with many wondering if the whole thing was staged. But the pair hit back, claiming that they were just victims from people persecuting them for their faith.
“I want to be the man that I want my daughter to marry,” Rader told viewers in one of his videos. It’ll be interesting to see if his fans think he still holds up to that standard.
