Russ and Paola Mayfield: We’re Having A…
Brace yourselves, 90 Day Fiance fans.
We now know exactly what the stork is bringing Russ and Paola Mayfield.
In a very sweet and revealing Instagram message, the veteran reality stars alerted fans to the gender of the baby growing inside of Paola.
Are you ready to find out?
Are you sure?
Okay. Here we go…
IT’S A BOY!
We’ll let Paola explain in further detail, per her caption to the photos above and below:
We are having a BOY!!!!
I didn’t care if it was a boy or a girl, I just wanted a healthy baby and to be able to have it in my arms as soon as possible.
Of course I’m always rooting for a girl but a boy is a blessing as well and I know my husband is really excited!
This is an amazing experience now I can finally say I’m pregnant!!! I’m having a little boy.
The Mayfields announced their first child was on the way back in late July.
They did so via the following statement to Us Weekly:
“This is the most amazing feeling ever! We can’t believe we are going to be parents – we are already so in love with our baby.
“We are ready for this new adventure and we know it will bring us closer together.
“God has blessed us again, and this time, we are going as strong as our baby’s heartbeat.”
The couple also included the following image with this adorable confirmation:
News that Paola and Russ are expecting was met with surprise and also joy by fans of 90 Day Fiance.
We say surprise because there had been chatter as recently as a few weeks ago that the twosome’s marriage was on the rocks, as they seemingly could never settle the tension that existed over Paola so often posing near-nude.
And we say joy because Paola suffered a miscarriage last year.
This tragedy took a toll on the relationship in a variety of ways.
But Russ has strongly defended his union every step of the way, telling off trolls on Instagram not long before this pregnancy news went viral.
“Keep hating and commenting to better your dull lives because your opinions are meaningless in my eyes,” Russ said at this time, pulling nary a punch and concluding:
“You’re only hurting yourself hiding behind your keyboard. Which proves nothing to you or me…
“I am proud of where I come from,. And where I am going and that’s with the love of my life.”
So there you have it. Well said.
Congratulations on the impending little boy, Russ and Paola!
