Congratulations to 90 Day Fiance stars Elizabeth Castravet and Andrei Castravet! The sunny duo have just announced that they are expecting baby number two, and the family couldn’t be happier. Including their 3 year old daughter Eleanor Louise, who is eagerly anticipating becoming a big sister.
People reported that the 30 year old Florida resident spilled the beans on Instagram Friday with a beachside family photo. In typical fashion when announcing a pregnancy, Andrei, 36, is cradling his wife’s belly in the picture. Elizabeth captioned the image, “we are so extremely excited to announce that we are expecting baby Castravet #2! Ellie is SO ecstatic to be a big sister and help momma! We appreciate all of your love and support and cannot wait to have you on this journey with us!”
Andrei made his own announcement by captioning the same photo. “We are pleased to announce that due to hard work and a good attitude we will be promoting our daughter to big sister,” the Moldova native posted to his Instagram.
Fellow 90 Day Fiance stars shared in the couples’ elation. Jovi Dufren wrote, “Congratulations.” Loren Brovarnik shared, “Yayyyyy!!!! A huge congratulations!!!!” Cortney Reardanz added, “Congrats!!” while Natalie Mordovtseva posted celebratory emojis.
Andrei and Elizabeth are no strangers to sharing their lives with fans. They wed in Tampa, Florida on Season 5 of 90 Day Fiance, and appeared on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? which followed them to Moldova so Andrei’s family could participate in their second wedding.
But it hasn’t always been smooth sailing for the couple. Elizabeth’s family are often at odds with Andrei, who couldn’t commit to a career and relied on father-in-law Chuck Potthast to, directly or indirectly, finance the family lifestyle. Who can forget a heavily pregnant Elizabeth returning from work to find Andrei lounging around the house?
When the couple welcomed Eleanor in January 2019, they happily announced, “we welcomed her on Jan. 23 at 6:13 a.m., weighing in at 6 lbs., 11oz.” Andrei and Elizabeth continued, “this is such a joyful and amazing moment for us. We have never felt this rewarded in our lives and we are looking forward to our bright future as a family of three. Thank you so much to our fans for their continued support and love during our journey.”
Andrei was mocked by fans for taking on the role of Mr. Mom while Elizabeth returned to her 9 to 5 after taking maternity leave. She works for her father, but still. There were some questions about the reversal of roles, again, since Andrei expected Chuck to supplement his short comings.
Hopefully, Andrei and Elizabeth have their finances in order now that they are expanding their family. They promised to document their pregnancy journey to Instagram followers, including an upcoming gender reveal. This week, they are touring the Grand Canyon. Perhaps a chance for Elizabeth to connect with her earth mama self.
Congratulations on this happy news!
