90 Day Fiance star Kenneth Niedermeier gets ready to meet Armando Rubio’s whole family in an exclusive clip posted by ET Online. Armando recently came out to his family, and they weren’t exactly accepting of his sexuality. For this reason, Armando and Kenneth look nervous at the thought at the meeting.
Moving to be together
Armando, 31, and Kenneth,57, have been the first male same-sex couple to be featured on the popular TLC show. Despite their age difference, the pair’s determined to make their relationship work. Fans watch as Kenneth make the long move to Mexico from Florida to be with his lover, Armando.
It hasn’t been easy for the two with everything from Armando’s parents to Kenneth’s struggle to adjust to living in Mexico. Armando shared that people are still homophobic in Mexico, meanwhile, in a previous episode, a man at a taco stand yelled a homophobic slur at the pair.
Armando and Kenneth’s upcoming clip
While his mom and dad say they accept Armando being gay, they weren’t as accepting when he revealed he was with Kenneth. Especially when they stated that they planned to be a family with Armando’s young daughter, Hannah. When they drive up to Armando’s parents’ house, Kenneth is surprised to see a big group of people.
“OK, that’s a lot of people,” he says. “They’re all looking and they’re all lined up.” Armando tells cameras, “It’s a very difficult moment. I’m concerned that when my parents see us, they might not be as accepting or kinda backtrack on everything. But, not accepting him is not accepting me.”
But in a heartwarming moment, Hannah, who has been staying with her grandparents while Kenneth and Armando get their new place settled immediately jumped into her father’s arms, gives Kenneth a big hug.
The meeting continues
“It was just wonderful seeing her again,” Kenneth says, clearly touched by Hannah’s attention toward him. “It’s all worth it to just see her shine and to just hug her and just love her.”
As for Armando’s parents, his mom, Virginia, did shake Kenneth’s hand with a smile, though nervously, Armando’s father didn’t show up. Virginia states, she “tired,” but also acknowledged to cameras that its difficult seeing her son with a man.
“When I saw my son, Armando, I was very happy,” she says. “But seeing Armando with a man, it’s something strange but I don’t know.” his mom stated.
