90 Day Fiance stars Biniyam and Ariela
Biniyam Shibre first met Ariela Weinberg when she traveled to Ethiopia. She was traveling the world to get over her divorce from her former husband. Biniyam and Ariela soon fell in love and within months, she was pregnant with his son.
Many 90 Day Fiance fans know that Biniyam was married before, to an American woman named Bria. They had met while Bria was based in Ethiopia, working with impoverished children. They had a traditional Ethiopian wedding ceremony and within several months, they were expecting their son, Simon.
Bria had originally hoped to deliver the baby in the States, so they applied for Biniyam’s K-1 visa, but it was denied. She traveled to America to attend her sister’s wedding and remained there after her baby was diagnosed with a birth defect. Bria made it possible for Biniyam to travel to America for their son’s birth on humanitarian parole in January 2017.
The marriage failed, however, and Bria chose to stay in the States with Simon. This broke Biniyam’s heart and he has been missing little Simon ever since.
