90 Day Fiance: The Other Way has embarked on another season filled with cultural clashes, explosive fights, and both new and old faces. One couple returning to the show is Ariela Weinberg and Biniyam Shibre.
Ariela and Biniyam have quite a whirlwind story. The pair met while Ariela was traveling to Ethiopia. They fell in love and Ariela quickly got pregnant early on in their relationship. She decided to move to Ethiopia to be a family, but it wasn’t an easy ride. She had trouble finding a suitable home for her baby and dealt with cultural differences from religion to day-to-day life. The pair seemingly overcame the struggles, but it’s clear it’s not going to be an easy ride for the two of them this season.
In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Ariela got emotional when she explained that her son, Aviel, needed to have hernia surgery. “As a mom, that was a really difficult moment for me,” she said. “I wasn’t sure, like, what is the right decision? I wrestled with that a lot on [Season 3]. Like, what should I do? What is best for my son?”
Ariela first noticed something was “a little bit odd” with her son but dismissed it. However, during a routine doctor’s visit, she learned of his health condition. “I was like, ‘Oh, my God, I have to make this big decision.”
And it’s clear from Ariela’s time on 90 Day Fiance that she doesn’t always do well under pressure. And while she admits she’s “stubborn” and wants things her way, she tried to keep her fiance as involved as possible in the health choices for their son. And because Biniyam has another child from his first marriage, Ariela says she looks to him for guidance. “I definitely think that he gives me a lot of advice on things, and he’s excellent about changing diapers. He was so much better than me at getting the baby to eat. He’s great at rocking him to sleep and all the stuff that requires the extra patience.”
While the couple struggles with finding their rhythm and planning a wedding, it’s clear Season 3 won’t be without its struggles. However, it seems as though they are working together to compromise and do what’s best for their baby, which is what is important.
