“90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way” stars Armando & Kenneth are thanking their fans for all the love they received after making their reality show debut.
On the season two premiere, viewers were introduced to 57-year-old Kenneth and his 31-year-old fiancé Armando. The two met while chatting on a gay father support group. Kenneth lived in St. Petersburg, Florida but decided to move to Mexico to live with Armando.
Back in the day, Kenneth posed as a couple with his female friend to receive in-vitro fertilization when it was only offered to straight couples. They had a total of four kids together. Armando was previously married to a woman and has a daughter.
In the season teaser, the couple faces homophobia in the country and within Armando’s family who he hasn’t fully come out to yet.
On “90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way”, Armando said he first came out to his sister years ago. She originally told him the devil was inside him and disapproved of him coming out. He said the pain lead to him running into the desert and wishing something would happen to him.
During the confessional, Armando broke down talking about his family’s reaction to him coming out. He told his sister he wanted her to support him and accept him for who he is. He told the camera he hid being gay his entire life and is was holding him back from being the true him.
Kenneth expressed his gratitude to his new fans writing, “Thank you to each and everyone of you for all the smiles you’ve given me since last night! All the love and support has been just amazing… I truly am touched ❤️I really hope our love story will continue to open hearts and minds. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart! #lovewins #90dayfiance #90dayfiancetheotherway #90dayfiancétheotherway #pillowtalk #gaycouple #kennethandarmando ?️?”
