One of my favorite 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days couples has been Paul Staehle and Karine Staehle. Although their romance was turbulent and drama filled, there was something about the couple that made me root for them. Maybe it was just nice to see that two odd ducks were able to find each other in a world filled with less odd ducks. Fighting and making up via Google Translate, of course!
Paul and Karine faced many challenges to their relationship and eventual marriage. Paul’s criminal record. Financial problems. Immigration issues. Language barriers. And a heartbreaking miscarriage televised last season. Now, the couple has shared some good news-they have announced the birth of their first child.
The latest season of 90 Day Fiance ended a few months ago and I will admit I have been missing the over the top drama delivered by the show’s cast. Just when you think that nothing can shock you, 90 Day always manages to surprise/amaze/offend/appall you. And leave you wondering, what are these people thinking? And that, in a nutshell, is why we watch reality television-because these folks often don’t think at all before acting!
90 Day Fiance Alums Elizabeth Potthastand Andrei Castravet are new parents! Just like most other new parents, they shared photos of their newborn on Instagram. Their daughter Eleanor Louise Castravet who was born in late January. In addition to sharing family photos, they also discussed both the joys and challenges that come with new parenthood during a recent interview.
Fans may recall their story began when Elizabeth met Andrei in Dublin, Ireland while she was on vacation and Andrei was working as a bouncer. Elizabeth hails from Tampa, Florida while Andrei worked in Ireland but is originally from Chisinau, Moldova. We watched their relationship develop during 90 Day Fiance Season 5, which included periods of tension between Andrei and Elizabeth’s family. They believed Andrei was too controlling of Elizabeth and her father went as far as refusing to offer financial support to the couple.
