Jovi Dufren and Yara Zaya had a bumpy ride on 90 Day Fiancé that ended with marriage and a baby. Find out what their family is up to now.
Jovi Dufren and Yara Zaya did not have the easiest time on season 8 of 90 Day Fiancé, leaving fans to wonder what they’re up to now. The bickering couple had viewers split over whether or not they would make it down the aisle after a season of drama and issues for the Ukrainian and American pair. Jovi demonstrated himself to be unable to grow up and shed his hard-partying image that included visits to his beloved strip club. That left a stressed-out and pregnant Yara torn over what her next move should be. Though viewers saw the couple receive their happy ending in the season finale and subsequent special episode, the events depicted happened many months ago. Here is what the couple is up to now and what they have planned for the future.

The season finale saw Jovi and Yara saying “I do” in Las Vegas complete with an Elvis impersonator. The couple had cold feet up until the very last minute, though they decided to tie the knot. Meanwhile, Jovi’s mother, Gwen, handed her son over to his new wife. Though Yara was uncertain about Jovi and Jovi admitted marriage would be hard work, the couple appeared happy to be together. The show’s subsequent special depicted the couple welcoming their newborn daughter, Mylah, into the world. Gwen stepped up to support a pregnant Yara when the pandemic delayed Jovi for four months during a work trip. Though Jovi continued to stay out late partying and drinking while pregnant Yara remained at home, he appeared to take their daughter’s birth seriously. Fans are hoping that Jovi and Yara will now have a successful and evolved relationship.

Jovi and Yara’s story is far from over, as it was just announced that they will be appearing in the upcoming season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Once the camera crew wrapped, the couple did indeed stay together. They now live in New Orleans with their seven-month-old daughter, Mylah Angelina. The couple has stated that they have no plans for baby number two anytime soon, as baby Mylah is currently taking all of their attention. Jovi has stepped up to learn more about fatherhood, though many viewers have been questioning his ability to mature. The Louisiana native recently cleared up some rumors by appearing on 90 Day Bares All. Jovi admitted that he lied about strippers and did sleep with one. He also clarified that he had not had an ex pee in his bed, as Yara had claimed.
Meanwhile, Yara has seen her popularity skyrocket since appearing on 90 Day Fiancé. The mother opened her own online clothing boutique after many viewers expressed an interest in her beauty routine and fashion sense. Yara frequently shares photos of her outfits on Instagram with her 175K followers. She also opens up to audiences on her YouTube channel. The Ukrainian beauty rapidly lost her baby weight, which had previously created confusion as some fans doubted she had ever been pregnant. Though Yara and Jovi do not frequently share photos of themselves together, such as fellow season 8 couple Brandon Gibbs and Julia Trubkina, they did get some traveling in. The couple recently visited Los Angeles.
Fans should be expecting to see a continuation of Yara and Jovi’s dive into parenthood on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Their special segment showed that Jovi made baby steps to be a supportive father and husband. However, many viewers weren’t convinced that the father is ready to grow up, abandon his strip club habit, and really cut down on booze. Jovi and Yara’s continued journey will likely contain more tears and drama while Yara continues to mature into her role of a loving mother and grow her business and brand. Perhaps Jovi will surprise viewers by revealing a more mature version of himself. Many fans are also looking forward to seeing Gwen likely return, as the mother-in-law ultimately proved to be the support Yara needed. Fortunately for fans, Jovi and Yara appear to be just getting started with their reign on 90 Day Fiancé.
