The Mexican beauty of 90 Day Fiance met her potential future mother-in-law on last week’s episode. The tension between Jonathan Rivera’s mother and his fiancé was palpable when they met for the first time in Chicago. Ceci questioned Fernanda Flores‘ age and intentions this entire time. Of course, she was hesitant when Jonathan asked her to go wedding dress shopping with his fiancé.
It seems like the two were not off to the best start. The viewers watched Fernanda break down in tears after the meeting. When fans started reacting to the episode on social media, Fernanda put out a statement to detract from the negative comments towards Ceci.
Though Fernanda’s Instagram is private, In Touch Weekly accessed and shared the post.
Fernanda states that she feels no ill will about that conversation. She wrote, “Thank you all for being supportive after today’s episode I know you guys feel bad for me but is nothing to feel bad for. Ceci did what any mom would do. She worries about her son’s decisions.”
Since Fernanda is so close with her family, it was easy for her to see that distance and lack of communication were at the heart of the issues within Jonathan’s family. She wrote, “Unfortunately, Jonathan after being alone and away from home for many years he lost the communication. It is something he is working on.”

During the scene, Ceci revealed that Jonathan missed a Christmas to visit Fernanda overseas and propose. If Ceci was worried about Fernanda deepening the rift between the family, it was completely unfounded. Fernanda has actually been helping her fiancé rebuild relationships with his family.
She described how the situation unfolded, “It was hard in the beginning but once that she knew and I showed her that the only thing that I want is [to] help Jonathan reconnect with his family and be a good wife for him and grow together. She felt relieved and she is been really sweet and nice to me.”
Fernanda continued to praise Ceci as a mother and matriarch, “I love her so much for giving birth and raising the awesome man that I have. She is a mama bear and I love feel that she is mother-in-law and I’m part of her family.”
It’s so nice to know that these two ladies have opened their hearts to each other. Since Fernanda is still in the United States, it’s more likely than not that she and Jonathan have wed already.
