Tyson Ngo, also known as TenZ, is a Canadian professional Valorant player, streamer, and former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player who was born on May 5, 2001. He is currently signed to Sentinels.
Ngo’s professional career started in October 2019 when he was 18 and joined Cloud9’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team. At the time, he was one of the youngest players in the professional scene. After the public beta of Riot Games’ first-person shooter Valorant came out in April 2020, Ngo announced that he would be leaving CS: GO and switching to Valorant, making him Cloud9’s first professional Valorant player.
Recently, TenZ’s girlfriend, Kyedae Shymko, said on Twitter that she has been diagnosed with cancer. The person who made the 100 Thieves content said that she will soon start treatment for acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. She also said that she doesn’t know how her body will react to the treatment, so it’s possible that her stream schedule will change.
The public’s curiosity about her private life increased after she revealed she had cancer. Their interest centers on her connection to TenZ. In this article, we’ll talk in-depth about how they got together.
Who Is TenZ’s Girlfriend, Kyedae Shymko?
Kyedae Shymko is also from Canada. At first, people liked her because she was TenZ’s better half, but now she is a very popular streamer in her own right. She began streaming on her partner’s computer on October 31, 2020.
Over the past few years, the 21-year-old has remained an important and influential figure in the VALORANT scene. She often streams her own gameplay to large audiences and makes content with other creators from different groups.
Under the 100 Thieves brand, Kyedae’s audience has grown by leaps and bounds, making her not only one of the most popular VALORANT streamers but also one of the most-watched streamers on Twitch, with an average of nearly 10,000 viewers per broadcast this year, as per source.
Inside Kyedae and TenZ’s Relationship
Kyedae approached TenZ at a party, and that’s where their relationship began. Before he met her, the star of Sentinels said he thought he’d never have a girlfriend. The couple said at that time that they had been secretly engaged for eight months, but that they only decided to tell everyone in August 2022.
On their third anniversary, when they made the announcement, they had a romantic photo shoot on the beach. In the pictures, Kyedae was wearing an engagement ring that she kept hidden when she recently performed at the CONQuest Festival 2022.
TenZ tweeted, “Happy three-year anniversary to the love of my life.” “I can’t believe how fast time goes when you’re having fun. Also, we’ve been engaged for eight months, but we haven’t told anyone until now.” After congratulating her fiance on Twitter in a funny way, Kyedae also posted a message from the heart. “Always with you, my love,” she told him. “I couldn’t be happier to age with the person I love the most.”
After they told everyone, Kyedae explained on her stream why they kept their engagement a secret. “He asked me to marry him on December 29, 2021,” she said. “We didn’t tell anyone because people are mean on social media. We thought it was something that should only be shared among close family and friends so that we could all enjoy it.”
Kyedae also told fans that they have a video of them getting engaged that she hopes to share one day if TenZ is okay with it. “I’ll tell you, guys, about it when I feel ready because Tyson was so awkward that he dropped the box when he tried to open it,” she said. “It just looked weird, so I started laughing. It was so Tyson.”
