90 Day Fiancé Instagram blogger @90daycouple posted screenshots taken from Ariela’s brother Brad’s Instagram Stories in December 2021, showing Brad holding baby Aviel who was dressed up in a formal suit. The location was tagged as Congregation Kehilat Shalom, a synagogue based in Central New Jersey.
In one of the portraits, Biniyam was wearing a metallic black and gold jacket while standing next to a rabbi and what appeared to be a film crew.
Amid the family reunion, Ariela’s sister, Kristin, also posted a video showing Aviel playing in the synagogue, adding more fuel to rumors the couple tied the knot.
Although the pair had their fair share of struggles before and after welcoming their son in Ethiopia, Biniyam and Ariela got engaged during the 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way season 2 finale, which aired in November 2020. The dancer proposed to Ariela on Timkat, known for being the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo celebration of the baptism of Jesus Christ.
“Today is a special day,” he said in a confessional. “I plan on proposing to Ari. I would love to be with her for the rest of my life.”
After he got down on one knee, Ariela was overcome with joy and said she felt confident about their future together especially because of the challenges they overcame as a couple.
“This is so crazy,” the mom of one gushed in a follow-up scene. “This is the coolest proposal of all time and even with the fact that we were fighting all day and then I would say yes just goes to show our relationship is a little bit like that, you know? Even if we fight, we still love each other at the end of the day.”
More recently, the duo announced that Biniyam obtained his K-1 visa during the season 3 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way tell-all. Ariela and Bini said that he was now living with Ariela in New Jersey after completing the K-1 visa interview process in Ethiopia following their son Aviel’s successful hernia surgery in America.
Ariela explained, “I think Biniyam having the opportunity to be in the U.S. and see where I’m from, understand me better, I don’t know, I think it makes the relationship stronger.”
While Ariela and Biniyam have not confirmed or spoken out about their marriage rumors, it seems Bini is still in the United States and living in New Jersey with Ari and their son, Avi — which would imply that they did get married as couples using the K-1 visa must wed within the 90-day time frame or the foreigner must return to their country.
As for whether Ari and Bini are still together, it seems they are living happily ever after. Ari took to Instagram in April 2022 to share a sweet birthday tribute to her rumored husband.
“Happy Birthday to the most adventurous, charismatic, fun, talented, sensitive, and weird dude around… Biniyam Shibre… !” she wrote on April 7. “But seriously… you are a great father. You always do your best to make other people around you happy and I appreciate that kindness. Avi loves you so much. Keep on shining. The USA is looking good on you. But you’d fit in anywhere! Here’s to another wonderful year on this planet. You are so loved by so many people!”
