Brandon hasn’t spoken about any other woman whom he has been with, except his long-term girlfriend Maria Gloria; she is also a YouTuber and Instagram influencer, and uploads videos featuring her make-up tutorials, her advice for clothing, and her vlogs about life and self-confidence.
The two met in 2014, when Brandon moved from his small town to Alaska; he was working as a waiter in a local coffee shop and was broke, without a place to stay. At that time, Maria was married, and her husband was in the army so she was living alone, with her daughter Autumn somewhere in Maryland.
In the following year, Maria divorced her husband, and continued her new life with her daughter in Sacramento, California, while Brandon moved to Los Angeles, California where he was struggling to provide for rent and food. Eventually, Maria called Brandon to come to her house, wanting to help him as a friend until he became financially stable.
Brandon made the first move and told her about his feelings, and fortunately Maria felt the same, and they started a relationship in 2016.
As of October 2021, they are still together, however, their family has increased by another member; on 29 May 2021, Brandon posted a picture of his newborn son Jameson Mercury Farris, with a funny description – among the other things, he wrote that the baby looked like his mother, Maria Gloria.
