Sam Rader, husband of Nia Rader and one-half of the Christian vlogging duo that went viral earlier this month with a pair of pregnancy videos, has been implicated in the Ashley Madison affair scandal.
The Daily Mail reports that someone living at Rader’s address and paying with his credit card made two $189 payments to the dating website that facilitates affairs in 2013.
An additional four $14 payments were also listed under his name in the database, the site notes.
At the time of the payments, Sam Rader had just become a dad for the second time. He was also celebrating four years of marriage with Nia.
Together the couple have amassed 360,000 YouTube subscribers while sharing their lives on the video sharing platform.
Earlier this month, Sam “surprised” Nia and all their followers with a video depicting him finding out about his wife’s positive pregnancy test before she did.
Shortly after, the couple shared a second downbeat video in which they together announced that Nia had miscarried. The video received unwanted attention from the public with implications that it may have been for show to capitalize on news trends in which Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan announced miscarriages.

Surprisingly — or perhaps not — this isn’t the first Christian personality to be linked to the notorious website in the last few days.
In fact, the bigger news item is that of Josh Duggar, the eldest child of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, who not only admitted to molesting his sisters and other underage girls when he was 15, but also confessed that he’d been unfaithful to wife Anna while a member of the Ashley Madison website.
Not only that, but Duggar also allegedly had a Facebook account enacted in 2012, which would have been four years after the eldest Duggar son married his wife.
The eldest Duggar son admitted to living a “double life” and said he had been unfaithful to his wife and suffered from a pornography addiction.
Initially, Duggar blamed Satan for his actions and said he was suffering from a long-term pornography addiction. However, shortly after posting the statement to the blog, the family redacted portions of the post, removing references to Satan and pornography.
What do you think, readers? Are Christian people more likely to have affairs than non-Christian people, or are Duggar and now allegedly Sam Rader just coincidences? Sound off in the comments section.
