Reality TV shows, depending on the authenticity of their production team, hold a mirror up to real life. The good, the bad, and the ugly. They serve as mindless entertainment, and the public can’t get enough. 90 Day Fiance, in particular, provides a unique blend of cultural clashes, everyday issues, and relationship strife. Fans get heavily absorbed in all the drama, choose sides, and enjoy the entertaining chaos. It’s mostly all in good fun.
Sadly, 90 Day Fiance alums are not immune to the sorrows of life. Though their tenure on the show may be over, reality stars maintain a following on social media. So when tragedy strikes, alums still get a ton of support from those that enjoyed watching them on the series.
Earlier this week, Robert Springs and Anny Springs announced that their 7-month-old son Adriel passed away. People reported that the grieving mother shared the tragic news on her Instagram Thursday. She wrote, “Today is one of the worst days of my life, my son Adriel Spring died, I am devastated and my family…life is so hard and difficult.”
The couple refrained from sharing any further info, though Anny implied that Adriel had a medical issue. She continued, “I never thought I would lose my son. He was a fighter… his heart couldn’t take it… my heart is broken it’s a big pain… so difficult.”
Colt Johnson’s mother Debbie Johnson posted, “Omg, I can’t believe this. I am so very sorry. Words can not express the sadness that I feel for you guys and your family. I’m absolutely devastated. If I can do anything please let me know. Just remember that you guys need to be there for each other. This is just so very sad. My love and prayers are with you.”
90 Day Fiance: Before The 90 Days star Akinyi Obala added, “My sincere condolences. I’m so sorry. Sending you lots of love. I pray for you and your family.”
Robert and Anny shared their incredible journey on Season 7 of the hit reality TV series. After getting engaged within 8 hours of meeting Robert, the Dominican Republic native emigrated to the United States to join her love and his son from a previous relationship.
They defied 90 Day Fiance odds and are still together. Robert and Anny are loving parents to a 20-month-old daughter named Brenda Aaliyah, and welcomed Adriel in September 2021. At the time of his birth, Anny called Adriel her “prince” and captioned his picture with, “I thank God that he took care of me and everything went well. Mamabear, mama in love.”
