It is quite safe to classify Daniel Preda as a very successful model. It is unknown when his modeling journey began, but he is currently signed to Model Maggie Inc and Elite. Apart from his social media accounts, he also has a lifestyle blog where he posts photos and writes about fashion, modeling, travel, lifestyle and all things dignified. He identifies himself as a writer and producer on his Twitter account.

Social media presence

Daniel became popular on social media platforms after his relationship with internet sensation and YouTube personality, Joey Graceffa emerged. According to the model, he was not very familiar with the YouTube community until he met Joey and since then he has made several appearances in Joey’s YouTube videos, including his outgoing video titled “Don’t Wait not”.

Relationship timeline

Daniel Preda is openly gay but was not known to share details of his relationships online until he met Joey Graceffa. Although the two lovers are both from Boston, they did not meet there but much later in life. Another thing they share in common is that they were both raised by alcoholic parents. Joey is the only boyfriend Daniel has introduced to his family and fans online.

On Valentine’s Day 2016, the two lovebirds came as a gay couple. Making their relationship official somehow confirmed the speculation that had been racked up by their many fans as they dated before coming out of the closet. At first, they wanted to keep their relationship a secret and out of public prying eyes, which didn’t go over well considering their popularity. Some internet sleuths made a point of noticing everything, including when Joey was spotted wearing Daniel’s clothes. Consequently, Daniel had to seal his Twitter and Instagram accounts after his partner’s fans started stalking him.

When they finally decided to share their lovelife with fans, they took to YouTube with a video called “Our Love Story!” where Daniel spilled the juicy details of how they met and why they didn’t want to go public at first. As expected, they met online and later saw each other at a bar in Los Angeles, after which their romance began. Daniel got a taste of big popularity by befriending Joey who is already super famous on YouTube.
