David Dobrik Before Instagram
David Julian Dobrik was born on July 23rd, 1996.
The young social media personality is only 24 years old this year!
Dobrik is of Slovak descent, as he was originally born in Slovakia. His family moved to Chicago when he was six years old and this is where he grew up ever since.

After finishing high school, Dobrik had two choices – move out or go to college. The inspiring teen chose to move to Los Angeles with a few friends, struggling at first with low spending money.
David has three younger siblings Ester, Sara, and Toby, who occasionally appears on his videos and other social media.
The last video the siblings did together was during a Q&A session to find out more about Dobrik’s family.
We found out that the vlogger’s siblings aren’t allowed to watch his channels as it contains too much swearing!
David Dobrik and David Dobrik Too
David came into our spotlight after posting viral videos on the 6-second video platform Vine, that has since been shut down. He was part of the Vlog Squad, a group of big-name former Vine stars including Josh Pek, Gabbie Hanna, and Zane Hijazi.
Dobrik then started posting regular content on his YouTube channel, David Dobrik and you would not believe how many subscribers he has today.
David thanks his vlogging career to then girlfriend and Vine star Liza Koshy, who apparently introduced him to vlogging.
David’s main channel David Dobrik now has over 15.8million subscribers and his second channel David Dobrik Too has over 6.95 million subscribers!
His fun and easy-to-watch content sometimes features other fellow YouTubers and even includes some of Dobrik’s A-list celebrity friends.
If you think 16.1 million subscribers on his YouTube channel is impressive, wait till you find out David Dobrik’s Instagram followers!
Dobrik received his Diamond Play Button from YouTube in December 2018.
David Dobrik’s Instagram is as fun to watch as his YouTube videos. With a whopping 11.7 million followers, you’re missing out if you’re not following him already. (Even our favourite Joe Sugg has half of this amount!)
Our favourite post so far has to be the one where Dobrik holds up two super cute doggos captioned “One of us won’t stop peeing on the rug’.
David Dobrik and Liza Koshy
At the peak of David’s career, the social media star was in a serious relationship with vine star Liza Koshy from 2015 to June 2018. The media loved seeing the pair together as they both appear regularly on each other’s vlogs and social media.
Sadly, years later the couple posted a video to announce their break-up and YouTube was in tears. Their breakup wasn’t easy, but it seems like a matured and mutual decision.

The couple blamed their breakup on the pressure of both having successful YouTube careers and different schedules.
“Liza broke up with me because she felt like we’ve been distant because we’ve been so busy. As much as I hate to admit it, I was feeling it on my side too but I just don’t have the balls to pull the trigger on that.”
“We felt like we were living separate lives but neither of us was coming to terms with it. So I decided we should break up. We didn’t want to tell anybody because we were just so angry at the fact we distanced in the first place.”

David is now rolling with the Hollywood big dogs.
